Standings

Major changes: Vladimir concedes his top spot to Rote Laterne, looking for a Vuelta-Tour double and up from 5th.  Del1962 also has a 4 place jump to the podium, and there are ni less than 5 new entries to the top ten (LosBrolin, BicycleBoy, Shalgo, Googolplex and AmisVelo)  The biggest jump is outside the ten though: Bminchow has gone up 13 spots.

    I didn't expect this after stage 1. Still 10 stages to go until we know if risk paid off.

    Stage 11 A break away from the breakaway

    Green points

    Whatever I wrote to introduce stage 6 probably applies here.

    1   BicycleBoy   25 (Craddock)
    2   Fauniera, Jakob747, LosBrolin, Tobydawq   7 (Gebreigzabhier)

    Third day in a row that BB is top scorer in this classification, so extends his lead.  Los Brolin moves up 2 places to 11th, Jakob is of the bottom, Toby breaks the 4 way tie for 31st place, and Fauniera just stays put.

    Red points

    Not a lot, may as well show all those who changed their projected scores:

    Among a field full of one or two place moves, Jakob747 somehow manages to move up 5.  The most significant move is Del taking 2nd place, while Shalgo, Googolplex and Amis Velo also move up within the top ten.

    The highest change in this undramatic update sees Salvarani go from 10th to 9th.  Somehow, I had the biggest step forward, passing three teams on the back of a below mid-table daily score of -8.  Ah well, I'll take what I can get at this stage of the game.

    Sorry for the overnight delay

    Stage 14 Sprint from a very suddenly reduced bunch

    Green points

    Just three riders in the game who took stage points, but two of them were fairly popular.

    On the day

    1   Armchair_Cyclist, BicycleBoy, DJSprtsch, JustSomeGuy, Kazistuta, PremierAndrew, Yellow_Knight   70 (Bennett)
    8   Josedin   40 (Richeze)
    9   BluesInTheBottle, Del1962, Fauniera, Googolplex, Laarsland, Leadbelly, Vladimir   7 (Soler)
    16   The rest   0

    Overall:

    The morning's top two have Bennett, but third didn't, so DJSprtsch ascends to the podium, and Josedin moves up 5 places just behind im.  Premier Andrew rises 11 places, and Armchair Cyclist 10, for both of them to join the top ten.
    1   BicycleBoy   466
    2   Kazistuta   384
    3   DJSprtsch   372
    4   Josedin   313
    5   Rote_Laterne   304
    6   PremierAndrew   297

    8   Armchair_Cyclist   293

    LATOUR Pierre   -10   30

    Latour is on 87% of teams, and his 11 minutes only cost us 10 points, so the limited changes are mainly about stage and red jersey points.

    Stage 15 MTF at Santuario del Acebo

    Green points

    A victory for a unique pick

    On the day
    1   Koronin   72 (Kuss and Valverde)
    2   Bminchow   45 (Geoghegan Hart, Padun, O'Connor and Roglic)
    3   JustSomeGuy   32 (Geoghegan Hart and O'Connor)
    4   AmisVelo, BikeRacer33, Googolplex   28 (Geoghegan Hart and Roglic)
    7   Comodoro, DJSprtsch, Laarsland, Leadbelly, Ripley, Salvarani, Yellow_Knight   25 (Geoghegan Hart)

    Overall
    DJSprtsch moves up again, now in second, and while Yellow Knight and Googolplex have risen 4 places each to get into the top ten, Bminchow has a 9 place move to achieve the same.

    1   BicycleBoy   474

    Los Brolin moves back to second, and Rote Laterne's lead is rather smaller than it has been for "the last number of days" (as Sean Kelly would put it).  Googolplex, BikeRacer, Bminchow and Amis Velo also all move up one place in the top ten, and Comodoro and Yellow Knight each have a four place jump.

    Overall
    The top three had Bennett, and so retain their positions, and Yellow Knight overtakes the highest non-Bennett team to move into 4th.  The three remaining Bennett teams (Premier Andrew, Armchair Cyclist, Just Some Guy) jump forward (JSG by 9 places) to enter the ten.

    All change:  Del1962 takes the lead, and Bicycle Boy and Bike Racer move onto the podium.. None of them have Quintana, but they have decent scorers today (Bennett, Kelderman and Knox respectively) and did not suffer losses through Lopez.  Previous leader Vladimir is back into the top ten, and breaks the 9 Poglicians in the top 9 spots.  Another previous leader, Ripley, is leaper of the day, moving up 8 places.

    Stage 18 A test of recovery from yesterday

    Green points

    On the day:
    1   Shalgo   110 (Higuita and Roglic)
    2   ArchieBoy, Comodoro, Fauniera, Jakob747   80 (Higuita and Lopez)

    19   Carlo_Algatrensig   20
    20   BluesInTheBottle   17


    Overall:
    The top three are as they were, and although Josedin's 5 place jump into the top ten would normally be remarkable, it is out in the shadows by Shalgo's 10 place leap to 4th.

    I'm baffled that my strategy for top ten worked after the TTT failure. But for victory a Roglic winning and Lopez second would be necessary.

    I selected 6 teams, the first one and the last one (which ended up being submitted) had the Roglic and Lopez strategy that's why I thought more managers would risk investing top heavy.

    In my other teams I had Kruijswijk or Uran as most expensive or second expensive rider so I wouldn't have been better off with these teams.

    Standings

    A new leader, as Bicycle Boy moves up from third, and the podium teams have just 27 points between them.  BikeRacer is the only other team within the top ten to move up, and further down Premier Andrew progresses 4 places.

    One more stage to see how much the GC points change, and then one for stage points and to try to change the points classification.

    Stage 20  The revenge of youth

    Green points

    On the day
    1   Josedin   77  (Pogacar and Higuita)
    2   BluesInTheBottle   70 (Pogacar)
    3   Koronin, Search   40 (Valverde)
    5   LosBrolin   35 (Majka and Roglic)
    6   Carlo_Algatrensig, Laarsland, Leadbelly   25 (Majka)
    9   Shalgo   17 (Roglic and Higuita)
    10   Del1962   11 (Roglic, Kelderman)
    11   Roglic teams   10
    17   Higuita teams   7
    21   Quintana teams   3
    26   JustSomeGuy   1 (Kelderman)


    Overall
    The top three are as they were, but Josedin has a 5 place jump, the only team in the top ten to move up.  Koronin matches the jump.
    1   BicycleBoy   610
    2   DJSprtsch   528
    3   Kazistuta   486
    4   Josedin   465
    5   Yellow_Knight   438
    6   Shalgo   435
    7   Googolplex   401
    8   BikeRacer33   400
    9   PremierAndrew   394
    10   Bminchow   390

    The top three all have Bennett, and I don't see any other riders in DJSprtsch's team who are going to accumulate 82 points in tomorrow's stage.  The minor prize looks to be BicycleBoy's.

    The riders with negative scores on the day are rather more popular picks than those who made gains, so most of us lose out.

    Standings

    Del1962 is back on the top, and Googolplex and Los Brolin both pass the Knox-affected BikeRacer.  Blues in the Bottle makes a late top ten appearance as the top non-Roglic team, and Josedin'd trust in you is rewarded with a leap of 8 places.

    Unless something very unexpected happens tomorrow, it is all down to Sam Bennett as to whether Bicycle Boy overhauls Del: another second place for the Irishman would be enough to change the top of the table.

    Stage 21, and final results

    Green points

    On the day
    1   Hakkie   70  (Jakobsen)
    2   PremierAndrew   50 (Bennett and Boasson Hagen)
    3   Armchair_Cyclist, BicycleBoy, DJSprtsch, JustSomeGuy, Kazistuta, Yellow_Knight   40  (Bennett)

    10   TotalPackage   10  (Boasson Hagen)
    11   Shalgo   7  (Theuns)
    12   The rest   0

    Overall:  The final minor category standings

    Yellow Knight remains 4th, Josedin and Shalgo disrupt the Bennett teams, Just Some Guy and Hakkie share the plaudits for the best jump that cannot be undone in further stages (5 spots).
    But more importantly on the last stage, the top tree are unchanged: Well done to Bicycle Boy.

    Red points
    No red jersey points, only one swap of positions in the top 50, and a little bit of change in the points competition, so today's points are essentially the sprint points.

    Final standings

    The only change in the top fifteen is the most important one there could be: Bennett did enough to give Bicycle Boy the final lift up to win the game. Del drops a place, but he and Rote Laterne are on the podium.  Premier Andrew made a 3 place move as his final throw of the dice.
