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! ;)

    Update 6

    Wow, we've got some massive scores in this update! Many of us doubled our point totals in the past 2 weeks, as we saw several young guns deliver solid results. But of course, we have to put the spotlight on Mathieu van der Poel, whose score shapes the rankings in this update. Of course, it's a bit unfair to compare him with the others in our game, but still, we have to remember he is a very expensive pick and a huge gamble, considering his limited road racing schedule. I'm sure some players were holding their breath after his crash in Nokere Koerse, but he bounced back already in his next race with a win and a handy 140 points. Add to that his 4th place on Sunday, and things are looking very good for the teams that selected him.

    MADRAZO is our highest scorer, he combines 236 points from Van der Poel with solid scores from Moschetti and Lonardi, as well as a dozen or two from Alfdan De Decker and rare picks Arvid de Kleijn and Thibault Ferasse.

    Nathanptz and Leadbelly share the 2nd spot on the podium of the highest scorers ranking. Interestingly, they didn't score with the same riders, although they do share Moschetti and Dewulf. Nathanptz adds points from De Decker and Lonardi and a big 175 points from unique pick Cees Bol. Leadbelly is one of those with Van der Poel, and added a couple small scores from Barnabas Peak and Cristian Muñoz.

    In the highest movers ranking we see a couple big leaps. Leadbelly, 2nd highest scorer of the week jumps 23 spots to 11th place, which he now shares with another of the big movers, AupaPyama. He moves up 22 spots thanks to points from Van der Poel, rare pick Pierre Barbier and a couple others. Third highest mover spot is shared by this update's highest scorer MADRAZO and Koronin. Koronin got points from Van der Poel as well as Barbier and unique pick Magnus Klaris.

    These big movements resulted in quite a few changes to the top of our overall ranking. In first is now fauniera, who climbed 5 places. Nathanptz and MADRAZO round out the new podium. Interesting to note that MADRAZO scored almost 4/5ths of his current score in the last 2 weeks! A bit lower in the top-10 we find search, who's jumped from 16th to 7th.
    Of course, when there are winners there are also losers, and we see quite a few tumble down or even out of the top-10. Most notably, our Spanish friends, former 1st place Kryvo, Ludwigzgz, Jon Ezeitza and Josedin all drop several places.

    Update 7

    I considered last update's scores to be massive, but lo and behold, the scores in this update are even bigger! Of course, this is mainly due to Mathieu van der Poel and Tadej Pogacar delivering splendid results in WT races. Van der Poel scored 356 points thanks to his win in Dwars door Vlaanderen and 4th place in De Ronde. Pogacar got 164 points by battling it out with the best in Itzulia. They are the two most expensive picks in the game, but they are also both in profit now, and we're only in April. Definitely a gamble that paid off for those who selected them, however only one of us decided to go all-in and picked both. It cost 9/10th of his budget, but so far it's paying off for fauniera. He was already the overall leader in the last update, and now he is the highest scorer this update, looking good.
    The second highest scorer was shawnm4747, who added to Van der Poel's points just over a 100 points for rare pick Vadim Pronskiy, who finished 3rd in Langkawi. A nice pick, he is now already at 250% of his 2018 score!
    3rd highest scorer is CORDI, who has Van der Poel and also scored slightly smaller batches of points with Andreas Leknessund and Kometa boys Michel Ries and Juan Pedro Lopez. That's what I like to see!

    CORDI is also the highest mover, together with Joelsim. They climb 11 places and both move into the top-10. Shawnm4747 rounds out this podium by moving up 10 places. He is now in 4th overall.
    Of course, fauniera keeps the lead, but behind him we see a lot of movement. Most notably, besides the ones already mentioned, are search (+4), AupaPyama (+5) and leadbelly (+4) all making gains. We see Karaev1 drop a handful of places and several more players drop out of the top-10, most notably former 2nd place Nathanptz who drops 14 places to 16th.

    Update 8

    Florry is off to Italy for vacation, but this doesn't mean our youngsters in the game took a break from scoring massive points as well - in contrary: for the second time in a row the magic 500 points barrier was broken, and this time not only by one, but by three participants. And same as two weeks ago, it is Fauniera who came off best, thereby also cementating his lead in the overall standings.

    The majority of those points were scored by Mathieu van der Poel (by winning the Amstel) and Remco Evenepoel (in the Tour of Turkey) again, and also Tadej Pogacar kept on bringing in good profit, which may make the lesser known picks look insignificant this week - but in the end it could be exactly those who make the difference between winning and losing the game.

    Some good examples of those are the unique choices of Mathijs Paasschens, who came 6th for scrool07 in Paris-Camembert, Samuele Battistella, LaFlorecita's winner of the Giro Belvedere di Villa di Cordignano, Stefano Oldani, 11th in the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon for Leadbelly and Alexander Richardson, who took the Arno Wallaard Memorial to the joy of Will10.

    In the end it were the van der Poel teams who consolidated their rankings in the overall standings this week though, with relatively few big movements. Shawnm4747 will be happy to see his team move up to 3rd though with the 2nd highest score this week, and Koronin and del1962 entered the Top 10 by moving up a week-high four spots.

    10   -3   Leadbelly   1233

    Mathieu van der Poel will take a break from road racing now, so it'll be thrilling to see how the game unfolds in the coming weeks, and who may benefit from spending his points elsewhere. Currently Comodore in 11th has the best team without him, so he'll look forward to grabbing the chance and climb up the ladder again.

    Thanks search. My two expensive picks Touze and Kanter don't score, spending their points on MVdP would have been genius.
    But Nieuwenhuis made his first points in his first race.  :)

    Update 9

    I've returned from Italy just in time for another update, thanks search for taking care of the previous one :cool
    We were spoiled in the last month or two, but this time it's a rather underwhelming update, with very low scores across the board.
    Highest scorer is TheArt with 92 points, with significant contributions from Alberto Dainese and TheArt's unique picks Marten Kooistra and Kaden Groves.
    Karaev1 is the 2nd highest scorer, scoring with Dainese and Joris Nieuwenhuis.
    The podium is rounded out by LukasCPH, thanks to unique picks Niklas Larsen and Rasmus Bogh Wallin.

    Because of the low scores, we don't see much movement. TheArt is also the highest mover (up 5 places), jfazendeiro is the second highest mover (up 3 places) with points from Dainese and unique picks Ziga Jerman and Jake Stewart. LukasCPH is also third here.

    Overall, there is no movement in the top-10. Fauniera remains the leader ahead of MADRAZO and shawnm4747.

    Update 10

    The Giro is nearing its end and as is traditional, we haven't had many young riders score in the race. However, parallel to the Giro several other races took place, among them the Tour of California. Of course, we all remember who won here: the amazingly talented Tadej Pogacar. 'Pogi' was an expensive pick, but 7 people gambled on it and are now reaping the rewards. He has already almost doubled his big 2018 score and the season is far from over.

    Naturally the highest scorers this week will be those with Pogacar on their team. Comodoro stands out from the crowd, adding to Pogacar's score significant contributions by Hayter, Leknessund, Pronskiy, Affini, Gregaard and Evenepoel. With a total of 418 points, he moves up 6 positions to 5th overall which makes him the highest mover of this update.

    Karaev1 is the second highest scorer. Besides Pogacar, Karaev1 had Moschetti, Vingegaard, Nieuwenhuis, Thijssen, Scotson and Evenepoel score major points. He moves up 4 places to 8th overall.

    Ludwigzgz is the third highest scorer, scoring with De Decker, Evenepoel, Nieuwenhuis and Mitchelton trio Stannard, Affini and Scotson.

    As I mentioned, comodoro is also the highest mover, but he shares the honors with LosBrolin, who got significant points from Stannard, Bagioli, Hayter, Evenepoel and his Vikings Gregaard, Vingegaard and Leknessund.


    Overall, fauniera remains the leader and in fact solidifies his position by outscoring his closest threats by quite some margin. Except the two newcomers in the top-10, comodoro and Karaev1, there is very little movement among the top positions.

    Update 11

    An interesting update, with 3 more obscure names scoring over 100 points. Of course I mean Edoardo Affini, Dani Muñoz and Thibault Ferasse. Affini scored 121 points, mainly thanks to his stage win and 4th place at the Tour of Norway. Muñoz won the overall at the Tour of Bihor in Romania, and Ferasse won the Boucles de la Mayenne. All three of them were cheap picks, at 41, 6 and 2 points and they were only picked 20 times between the 3 of them. Chapeau to those with one of multiple of these guys on their team!

    Joelsim did well to pick both Affini and Muñoz. On top of that, he scored significant points with riders like Evenepoel, Pidcock, Thijssen and Paret-Peintre. He is this update's highest scorer and also moves up 5 spots which makes him joint 2nd in the highest movers ranking, together with Jpettersen, who got points from, amongst others, Muñoz, Evenepoel and Paret-Peintre.

    DJW was the second highest scorer. He also has Affini, and added significant points from Nieuwenhuis and rare pick Champoussin. Those nice picks earn him the top spot on the highest movers rankings, he climbed 7 places.

    Ludwigzgz is the third highest scorer, he combined points from Affini, Nieuwenhuis, Pogacar and a couple others.

    Overall, we see that Joelsim climbs to 4th overall and we also see Karaev1 climb and Ludwigzgz enter the top-10. Fauniera remains the leader, but MADRAZO got a little closer.

    Also, we got some significant news this week: MVP MVDP will race again near the end of the season, and not just any race. Could be many more points awaiting those who selected him!

    Update 12

    High scores across the board, thanks to Evenepoel's big score in the Tour of Belgium, but due to his popularity, this only matters little. More important is Pogacar's 99-point score. He keeps adding to his already impressive tally.

    We have two highest scorers this week, comodoro and Ludwigzgz. Comodoro scored with Evenepoel, Pogacar and rare picks Hayter, Barbier and Pronskiy. Ludwigzgz got points from amongst others De Decker and Byriel Iversen, besides Evenepoel and Pogacar.
    Only 1 point behind these two is our leader fauniera, who received a nice amount of points for Muñoz' performance in Hungary, but after his Tour of Bihor win he might have hoped for a bit more.

    Because almost all of us scored significant points with Evenepoel and not much else, there isn't a whole lot of movement. Worth noting is that 18-Valve moves up 3 spots, thanks to 71 points from his unique pick Attila Vallter. Nice choice!

    Overall, of course fauniera has extended their lead. MADRAZO remains second and comodoro is now third. Lower in the top-10 we also see Ludwigzgz climb from 10th to 8th.

    Update 13

    The weeks leading up to the Tour are always a bit slow, with only the National championships and a couple minor races on the calendar. This year was no different, but those smaller races prove an excellent opportunity for our youngsters to show themselves.
    Trudgin is this update's highest scorer, with points from amongst others Evenepoel, Affini, rare picks Muñoz, Caicedo, Touze and also unique pick  Umberto Marengo. With this score, Trudgin is also the highest mover - climbing 7 spots

    The second highest scorer is comodoro. Notable names on his squad include Leknessund, Touze, Hayter, Evenepoel and Affini. Third highest scorer is LukasCPH. His rather unique team scored highly with Hirschi, Evenepoel, Leknessund and unique pick Niklas Larsen. LukasCPH moves up 2 spots, which makes him the joint 2nd highest mover together with Squire.

    Not much to note with regards to the overall ranking. The only notable movement is comodoro climbing 1 place to 2nd, pushing MADRAZO down into 3rd.
