Seeing Wallenquist and Ludwigzgz have the most popular teams and mine is pretty unpopular I can only hope they lost their expert knowledge.  ;)
Just one unique pick with ISERBYT Eli though.
I'm curious how the strategy picking MVdP turns out as there aren't any expensive must have riders this year. And Bol Cees showed last year zero pointers can score well.

    Yes, it is an interesting strategy and definitely could work out well. It's not hard to see MVDP outscoring for example a Pogacar-Stannard combination. Will be something to keep an eye on.

    I don't see Stannard break even and Pogacar won't make big profit either this year. Wouldn't mind if if they have a good season though as I like them and have both of them in my emerging 2018 team.

    Well, I am invested in Stannard as I have him on my main game team and youth team and probably emerging riders team as well :P

    Update 1

    Time for a short first update to start off the season. Only a couple of races are included in this update, which means only few riders scored. One of them was Tadej Pogacar, with 49 points at the Tour Down Under he was the best scoring rider. Obviously, the 7 people who selected him are the top-7 scorers this week. Ludwigzgz added points from James Whelan and Callum Scotson, which makes him top scorer. Karaev1 is just a handful of points behind as he lacks the points from Whelan, while 3rd placed Kryvo does have Whelan but not Scotson. Rounding out the top-8 as the 'best of the rest' is search, thanks to a good start of the season for his unique pick Cyrus Monk. 9 people share 9th place with 14 points from Callum Scotson.

    1   Ludwigzgz   68
    2   Karaev1   63
    3   Kryvo   54
    4   comodoro   49
    4   fauniera   49
    4   Jon Ezeitza   49
    4   Josedin   49
    8   search   22

    Update 2

    Last week, all eyes were on Remco Evenepoel, expectations were high and he definitely delivered. But as he is on so many teams, his points don't matter too much. Looking at this update's highest scorers, it's the rare picks that are making the difference. Highest scorer Kryvo got, besides Evenepoel's points and some other minor scores, 23 points from his rare pick Biniam Hailu, who he shares with Jon Ezeitza. LosBrolin and will10 share the 2nd spot on the podium for this update, but they scored with different riders. LosBrolin saw his rare and expensive pick Gino Mäder deliver a promising performance in San Juan, for which he got 21 points. Will10's major scorer besides Evenepoel was near-unique pick Daniel Whitehouse, who collected a total of 29 points in New Zealand and Australia.

    LosBrolin and will10 are also the highest movers, moving up 11 and 10 places, respectively. Nyssinator rounds out this podium by moving up 8 positions.
    Overall, we see Kryvo take over as the leader in the competition, and Jon Ezeitza also moves up onto the podium.

    Update 3

    After a slow start to the season in other parts of the world, it is now in full swing with many different races going on at the same time and we're getting a first look at the potential young stars in the peloton. Interestingly enough, the rider with the biggest score (48 points) in this update is Stefan De Bod thanks to an excellent performance at the South African national championships, perhaps a bit of a hidden event on the calendar. He was only picked by 6 people and his points have caused quite a shift in the rankings. Highest scorer is DJW, he is the only one with the combination of De Bod with Osorio, even though the latter is on roughly half the teams. He also got points from Affini and Muñoz.
    Second highest scorer is Armchair Cyclist, with points from De Bod, Affini and Bouchard. Otoxiep87 rounds out the podium with one point less than Armchair Cyclist, combining points from De Bod, Affini and Muñoz.

    The same names feature prominently on the highest movers list, however, the highest mover of all with 19 spots up is Trudgin, she was 4th on this update's highest scorers ranking, scoring points with De Bod and Affini. Armchair Cyclist is the 2nd highest mover, while DJW shares the third place spot with Nathanptz, who just has De Bod, but that is all that's needed to do well in this update!

    Overall, Ludwigzgz passes his fellow Spaniard Kryvo and moves into the overall lead. DJW leaps all the way to 3rd and Armchair Cyclist and me also jump into the top-10.

     :S How could I know he would be that good in his first pro-year on a team that was crap last year.
    Kudos to all who picked Pogacar.
    My two most expensive picks Touze and Kanter showed nothing so far.

    Update 4

    I don't think I'm exaggerating when I claim that in the last two weeks, we saw one of the most impressive displays in the history of our game. Tadej Pogacar, first year pro, class 1998, won the Volta ao Algarve against some pretty tough opponents, and with a level of strength, composure and resilience you don't often see in riders at that age. As Algarve is a 2.HC race, this earned him a huge chunk of points, to the joy of the 7 players who selected him. They will sleep a bit better at night knowing Pogi is already over 2/3rds of the way towards profit, despite his pretty significant price of 361 points.

    Obviously, the 7 who picked Pogacar, are also the top 7 highest scorers. Best of all is Kryvo, who also scored significant points with Moschetti and our Eritrean friend, Biniam Girmay. Karaev1 follows closely, adding points from Moschetti and Giovanni Lonardi to Pogi's tally. Third highest scorer this week is Jon Ezeitza, who has proven himself a very loyal supporter of Girmay in the past weeks.

    I feel obliged to give a shoutout to skidmark (Fedeli - Lonardi - Moschetti - unique pick Rajovic), for what would have been a very impressive score in any other update. But skidmark can't be too unhappy, as he features at the top of the highest movers list this update. Interestingly enough, none of our Pogi friends rank very high on the highest movers list, which can perhaps be explained by the fact that Pogacar had already scored a few points before this update.
    2nd highest mover is scrooll07, scoring mainly with Fedeli and Moschetti. 3rd highest scorer is 18-Valve with Moschetti, Lonardi, Bouchard and unique pick Attila Valter. I also want to mention Otoxiep87 in 4th place on this ranking, whose unique pick Rodrigues went a bit unnoticed in Algarve, but deliverd a very impressive performance nonetheless.

    Overall, Kryvo climbs one spot and takes over the lead from Ludwigzgz. Karaev1 makes a big jump to 3rd place. Also notice Otoxiep87's leap into the top-10, while DJW drops 10 places to 13th.

    Update 5
    In the last two weeks we had some major races, but as usual, big races with lots of points on offer doesn't translate into big points for our young riders. Most of us scored less than 50, and only player scored more than 100 points, skidmark. He got most of his points from rare picks Emils Liepins and Felix Gall. Liepins finished 4th in the Ronde van Drenthe while Felix Gall showed his talent in the Istrian Spring Trophy, winning a stage and the GC.
    DJW is the 2nd highest scorer. He got points with his unique pick Aksel Nommela (also one of the most expensive riders in the game) and Stefan de Bod. The third step on the podium goes to search, who is the only other person with Liepins.

    We also find search at the top of the highest movers rankings. He moves up 10 places, taking advantage of the low scores to jump towards the middle of the table. CORDI and Hakkie2 climb 7 spots, both thanks to Gall's points from Croatia.

    Overall, the most notable changes are the jumps by skidmark and DJW into the top-10. They are now 8th and 10th, respectively.
    Personally, I am a bit disappointed to drop out of the top-10 despite finishing 5th on the highest scorers ranking! ;)
