Update #18: Calm Before the Storm

First off, apologies for the very late update this week. I was in transit and then in a remote location, and when I tried to post through my phone (because I had no wifi) Cyclingnews gave me some kind of "IP address forbidden" notice, which I've never seen before. Luckily, it was probably one of the quietest weeks points-wise in the game, so of all the updates to be delayed this is probably not the most heartbreaking.

Anyway, game-wise as I said it was a quiet week, with the 2.1 Vuelta Communidad a Madrid as the only race above .2 status, plus two stages of the Giro and one of the Tour of California. So it is going to be a low-key week, compared to the rest of the season. Let's see who got the right combo of riders!

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   ThePirate81   122
2   Jancouver   101
3   freshman   100
4   fauniera   90
5   TheArt   87

ThePirate81 gets the win this week, one of only 3 teams to top 100 points this week. This was mostly on the back of unique pick Romain Hardy, who got 93 points this week to bring his seasonal total to 220 on a 120 cost. Add 25 points from Nibali and 4 from Rudy Barbier and that's good enough for the win. Jancouver ends up in second with a more disbursed points total (Nibali, Ewan, Gaviria and Bonifazio all pick up a handful) and freshman slides into 3rd with an even 100 with the same combo except for Restrepo (35 points) instead of Bonifazio (who got 36).

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   AupaPyama   (+4)
1   DFA123   (+4)
1   freshman   (+4)
4   PremierAndrew   (+3)
4   Tonton   (+3)
4   ThePirate81   (+3)
4   Jancouver   (+3)
4   PeterB   (+3)

Not a ton of movement here. freshman repeats on the podium, but tied with DFA123 and AupaPyama for top spot with a whopping 4 spot jump.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   Googolplex   151
2   armchairclimber   135
3   Popchu   133
4   TheArt   126
5   Nicosix   120

The points count the same in the Green Jersey competition even in weeks with few CQ points, and interestingly, lots of teams near the top of this ranking got more points this week. Googolplex - already in first - picked up 7 more points to add to their team's lead, and second place armchairclimber was the only team in the top 5 overall not to score, with Popchu and Nicosix both picking up 15 points this week, and TheArt picking up 26.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (-)   Object   5877
2   (-)   fauniera   5699
3   (-)   Tigerion   5453
4   (-)   tobydawq   5404
5   (-)   EvansIsTheBest   5389
6   (-)   karaev   5293
7   (-)   skidmark   5281
8   (-)   Kryvo   5259
9   (+1)   TheArt   5166
10   (-1)   Nyssinator   5128

Not much to comment on here - for example, fauniera got 4th place on the week and Object got 55th, but the gap only closed by 47 CQ points. Only one spot changed space, and we didn't gain or lose anyone in the top 10.

This week will certainly bring some more CQ action, with a whole week of Giro stages, California, Dunkirk, and a smattering of small races.
