Year 1, Month 1 to 3rd Feb

And off we go...

Picked riders' best scores
HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres      73 points (a 4th, a 6th and a 12th in Mallorcan races) for 3 teams (DJW, Ludwigzgz and Skidmark)
EVENEPOEL Remco      35pts (9th on GC and 3rd on a stage in San Juan)   28 teams
CONTRERAS PINZON Rodrigo      20 (4th in Colombian national TT)   2 (Comodoro, Hakkie)
FLOREZ LOPEZ Miguel Eduardo      17   2
SCOTSON Callum      14   2
WHELAN James      13   4
GARCIA SOSA Jhojan Orlando      9   2
Other popular riders to get off the mark already are HONORE and OSORIO (5 and 3 points, for 12 and 11 teams respectively)

And, largely because of Evenepoel being on >90% of teams, everyone has started scoring

3   DJW   97 (Higuita and Scotson)

Prior to this year I allowed entries right up to the end of January, meaning early results brought riders into a team: it worked very well for those picking Gaviria late in the 2015-17 game, not so much so for those who made a late inclusion of Najar a year ago.  So who would have been picked if entries closed a couple of weeks later this year?  Higuita might have had more picks (or at least fewer discards), but unpicked Aussie champion Freiberg already had his win before the game closed, and Dylan Sutherland had some of the points he now has.  Although he showed well rather than scoring highly, I guess Biniam Hailu might have gained some support if the Tropicale Amissa Bongo had been before the deadline: who would you have picked if you know halfway through the month what you know at the end of it?

The highest scoring unpicked riders:
FREIBERG Michael      105
QUIROZ AYALA Oscar Adalberto      100
SUNDERLAND Dylan      80
FOUCHE James      70
LEA Jason      62
OSORIO ARBOLEDA Juan Felipe      60
TESFOM Sirak      50
PAREDES AVELLANEDA Cesar Nicolas      50

The first update is probably more relevant for making sure the spreadsheet works than for the scores: here it is. (I might not always post the link, but it should always be at the same place)
