Update #21: The Stages of Success

It's a bit of a transition week in the CQ game - although the Tour is in full force and the dissonance of the season continued with Tirenno-Adriatico overlapping, neither race awarded GC points in this update. Aside from a couple of 2.2 races and a 1.1 race won by a cyclo-crosser, the WT points this week came solely from stages (which included three wins by cyclo-crossers off the top of my head, so maybe the takeaway is that cyclo-crossers are killing it on the road these days). Let's see how it shook out.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   triley36   416
2   Eric10   393
3   zaka_fan   387
4   comodoro   385
5   DJ Sprtsch   382

triley36 comes out on top as the only team to top 400 points; Soren Kragh Andersen was the star for their team, parlaying a 1st and 3rd in Tour stages into 115 points for his 43 owners. Wins from Marc Hirschi (15 teams) and Dani Martinez (9 teams) supplemented 50 points for a 2nd place from Lennard Kamna (spoiler alert - at least 80 more to come this week) and 80 points from Simon Yates (also more to come). Eric10 comes in second, swapping in Lucas Hamilton (45 points) in place of Dani Martinez from the above combination,  and zaka_fan rounds out the podium with 60 from Sagan and 50 from Merlier to supplement Andersen/Yates/Kamna.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   dimasotf   (+13)
2   triley36   (+12)
3   Nicosix   (+10)
3   Eric10   (+10)
3   Team_Instigator   (+10)
3   DJ Sprtsch   (+10)
3   zaka_fan   (+10)

We are 21 weeks into the CQ season so 400 points isn't going to take you as far up the standings as earlier, but some teams still manage a double digit leap. dimasotf tops this one, riding Andersen/Yates/Kamna/Merlier/Hamilton to a 13 place rise. triley36 comes in second here, whereas 5 teams tie for third.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   Jakob747   236.7
2   ChrisDK   192
3   EvansIsTheBest   131
4   Wallenquist   122
4   Hakkie2   122

No scoring for the top teams aside from the one at the very top. Jakob747 gets 13th on the week and 6 more points in this competition, extending the lead over second place ChrisDK to 44.7 points. Of course a weekly win is worth 45 points, so ChrisDK is still technically within reach of the lead on any given week. The rest of the pack is quite a ways back.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (+1)   
2   (-1)   EvansIsTheBest   5460
3   (-)   Nyssinator   5035
4   (+4)   Nathanptz   5000
5   (-1)   skidmark   4999
6   (-)   BlueRoads   4944
7   (+2)   Lortnoc   4914
8   (-3)   bminchow   4893
9   (-2)   mineralJ   4887
10   (+2)   Wallenquist   4844

There is a change at the very top for the first time in weeks. After slowly creeping up for a few weeks, Jakob747 gains 116 points on EvansIsTheBest thanks partially to Pogacar's amazing run, although that is likely to pay off more in the upcoming week. EITB remains comfortably in second for now, while Nyssinator stays in third. 150 points separates 3rd and 9th, so it's quite tight below the top two. Wallenquist moves into the top 10 at the expense of JPettersen.

The upcoming week has not only GC points for the Tour, but also for Tirenno, which ended on Monday. And for good measure, there are no fewer than 3 one-day races in Italy, and 1.1s in France and Belgium. It definitely has the potential for a points bonanza and an upheaval in the standings.
