Venturini barged 2 riders out the way at 300m to go, then he put Tom van Asbroeck into the barriers at 100m to go and finally hand slung himself off Tim Dupont's shoulder for his hat trick of infringements. :fp  :lol

    Bugger, after initially winning today's stage in Dunkerque Venturini has been relegated and also got a 30s penalty  :( that means not just 25 points down the drain but also the potential GC points :-x  :angry

    I have him in my cobblestone team for this race.  :S Haven't seen any footage but reading Leadbelly and Mellow Velo it sounds pretty deserved so all well with me.

    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.

    Grumble grumble... looking at Venturini's 2 second places and position on GC.... Not sure if I'm angry with the race jury or frustrated with Clement - robbed me of 100+ points :(

    Update #19: laarsland takes the week

    With three tiers of racing going on this week (ongoing stages at a GT, the lower-tier WT race in California, and the HC six-stages-but-four-days of Dunkirk), there were plenty of options for points to be mined with stage wins and GC points, and of course hopes going up and down at the Giro GC with the payoff delayed for another few weeks yet.

    This Week's Top Scorers


    Rank   Team   Points this week
    1   laarsland   571
    2   Riverside   555
    3   Jakob747   534
    4   ansimi   522
    5   Josedin   508

    The week goes to laarsland with 571 points. Their team is one of only 3 with the suddenly dominant Mike Teunissen picking up 246 points in Dunkirk, but also they got healthy contributions from Ewan (125) and Gaviria (110) at the Giro. Riverside finishes 16 points back with a totally different set of riders, as one of 7 teams with the jaw-droppingly good Tadej Pogacar (244 points this week), as well as 114 from Groenewegen (2 teams) and 111 from Keukeleire (5 teams). Jakob747 has a great showing to make the podium being pulled by the Higuita train (only 2 teams picked him but he got another 194 this week to bring his profit so far to 329 points on a cost of 119).

    This Week's High Movers

    Rank   Team   Up/down
    1   laarsland   (+16)
    2   Riverside   (+14)
    3   will10   (+13)
    4   ansimi   (+12)
    5   Josedin   (+10)

    laarsland and Riverside top this one too, moving up 16 and 14 places respectively. will10 gets in on some podium action, moving up 13 places mostly thanks to Pogacar and Gaviria.

    Green Jersey Competition

    Rank   Team   Total
    1   armchairclimber   153
    2   Googolplex   151
    3   Popchu   133
    4   TheArt   126
    5   Nicosix   120

    There's a new leader of this competition! After Googolplex extended their team's lead last week with 7 points, armchairclimber scores 18 this week to overtake Googolplex by two points. No other scoring in the top 5.

    Top 10 Overall

    Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
    1   (-)   Object   6139
    2   (-)   fauniera   5883
    3   (-)   Tigerion   5833
    4   (-)   tobydawq   5688
    5   (+2)   skidmark   5654
    6   (-1)   EvansIsTheBest   5627
    7   (-1)   karaev   5601
    8   (-)   Kryvo   5520
    8   (+9)   Jakob747   5520
    10   (-)   Nyssinator   5510

    Not a ton of movement on the overall either - fauniera lost about 78 points to Object so that lead is extended, but most teams were between 250 and 400 on the week so just some minor jockeying. Jakob747 rockets into the top 10 while we lose TheArt from last week's top 10.
