Stage 2

Green points

Today

1=   Josedin, SafeBet   80 (Alaphilippe)
3=   Scrool07, Search   50 (Hirschi)
5=   JustSomeGuy, Salvarani   3 (Pogacar)
No-one else scored.  A change in the minor classification after discussion before the Vuelta last year means that the two Alaphilippe teams don't get the 20 points for leading the GC table (in this classification, they still get them in the main game).

Standings
SafeBet and Josedin don't only share Alaphilippe, but also Coquard, so they had the same points yesterday and are still not separated in this competition.
1=   Josedin   83
1=   SafeBet   83

4   DJSprtsch   70
5   Googolplex   60
6   Scrool07   50
7   Salvarani   38
8=   AmisVelo   35

Main game

Most of the points are projected points: in previous years I have described that as 'if the Tour were to finish here', but in 2020 that seems unsubtle.  But because they are projections they become closer to reality the nearer we get to the end of the race, and scores can go down as well as up (So had anyone picked Kristoff, he had 780 points yesterday (80 for stage win, 20 Yellow jersey points, 600 for top of GC and 80 for top of green jersey), today he has 200 (he can't lose the stage winner and yellow jersey wearer points, even if he doesn't finish the Tour, but his 600 race leader points have dropped to 20 for being 129th on GC, and he still has the lead in the sprints classification, but will probably lose some placings in that over the next three weeks) and so his points difference on the day is -580.  And if individual riders can get negative daily scores, so can a team.


The main points changes, as they affect riders selected for our teams:
ALAPHILIPPE Julian   695   2   teams
HIRSCHI Marc   416   2   teams
CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban   235   2   teams
POGACAR Tadej   205   2   teams
BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley   174   16   teams
FORMOLO Davide   171   2   teams
DUMOULIN Tom   132   28   teams
ROGLIC Primoz   108   4   teams
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander   100   1   team
MARTIN Guillaume   90   2   teams
BUCHMANN Emanuel   80   12   teams

COQUARD Bryan   -183   5   teams
NIZZOLO Giacomo   -210   3   teams
SAGAN Peter   -255   3   teams
BENNETT Sam   -300   4   teams
BOL Cees   -370   7   teams
PEDERSEN Mads   -470   1   team

Scores will probably not fluctuate this violently most days:
1   SafeBet   909 (Alaphilippe, Bernal, Dumoulin, but Coquard)
2   Scrool07   636(Hirschi and Dumoulin)
3   Josedin   617 (Alaphilippe, but Coquard: A rare Dumoulin-less team)
4   BikeRacer33   588 (Bernal, Formolo and Dumoulin)
5   Leadbelly   543

Standings

No real correspondence to yesterday's table: the top two have both risen 17 places and Scrool 19.
That looks like an enormous, as if unsurmountable, lead already: how realistic it is, like the GC tables in last year's tour, depends on the durability of Alaphilippe's tenure of yellow.
