Update #36: Jakob747 Takes off as Tigerion Cracks the Top 2

It's Vuelta GC week, likely the highest scoring week left on the calendar (barring some SERIOUS scores at the Worlds). But the Vuelta wasn't all, there was also the two Canadian races, the Tour of Britain, and a few smaller races scattered here and there.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   Jakob747   1023
2   Josedin   1008
3   Hakkie2   1001
4   Simurgh   978
5   will10   952

Three teams crack a thousand points this week, and are very close together. Squeaking out the victory is Jakob747, getting 1023 points from an array of riders led by CQ efficiency god Mathieu van der Poel (274 points, 20 teams), excellent rare pick Sergio Higuita (174, 2 teams), unique-pick-that-is-underperforming-overall-but-paying-off-now Michael Valgren (103), another tier of riders scoring 50-80 on the week (Riabushenko, O'Connor, Chaves, Cosnefroy) and dribs and drabs from 12 other riders to push their team over the line. Josedin nabs second, missing top spot by only 15 points with a more top-heavy lineup that has an astounding collection of rare Vuelta talent - Josedin was one of 7 teams with Pogacar and his 445 points this week, one of 2 teams with CF Hagen and his 172 points, and the only team with MA Lopez and his 259 points. Josedin's 4th highest scorer is Bettiol with 40 points and a few guys with <20. Hakkie2 cracks the thousand mark as well as the podium, thanks to >100 points from MvdP/Geoghegan Hart/Cavagna/Ivan Garcia Cortina.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   Josedin   (+17)
2   will10   (+16)
3   comodoro   (+13)
4   Simurgh   (+11)
5   Riverside   (+10)
5   PeterB   (+10)

This will very likely be the highest jumps remaining in the competition this year... Josedin goes one better on this one, leaping 17 spots into the top 40 overall. will10 comes close, leaping up 16 spots on a Pogacar/MvdP led ticket, and comodoro leaps double digits as well thanks to Pogacar/Trentin.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   armchairclimber   225
2   ruvu75   218
3   TheArt   212
4   Popchu   208
5   tobydawq   196
6   skidmark   188
7   MADRAZO   185
8   Jancouver   183
9   Kryvo   179
10   fauniera   178

I mentioned last week that I was going to list all the teams within 45 points of the lead from now on, but the 9th and 10th place teams are 46 and 47 points out, so heck, I'm just gonna list the top 10. The only scoring in the top 10 this week has tobydawq leaping into the top 5 with 18 points on the week, and Kryvo's 2 points for 14th on the week gets them juuuust about in spitting distance down in 9th.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (-)   fauniera   13126
2   (+1)   Tigerion   12705
3   (-1)   karaev   12631
4   (+3)   tobydawq   12451
5   (-)   skidmark   12359
6   (+6)   Hakkie2   12347
7   (-3)   ruvu75   12309
8   (+1)   Kryvo   12297
9   (+1)   SafeBet   12256
10   (-4)   TheArt   12029

The untouchable top 2 are no more! Tigerion breaks into the top 2 that had been in a holding pattern between fauniera and karaev for several weeks - that's what scoring 917 points to karev's 344 will do. fauniera, however, scored over 600 and is sitting pretty on top by more than 400 points, and chances are looking good for them to become a two-time winner of this game. karaev still has a couple of hundred points over the next tier of teams, but tobydawq, skidmark and Hakkie2 scored around 900, 800, and 1000 points respectively on the week to dramatically cut into the lead for the podium. Despite the big GC points on offer for the week, Hakkie2 is the only newcomer to the top 10, while shalgo tumbles out.

Up next - Worlds domination!
