Stage 2 Alpecin wins in stage 2 are this year's thing

Jakobsen is a very popular pick, other sprinters aren't, so the sprint stages in this game will very much revolve around where he may place.

Green Standings

Three of the Roglic teams also have Jakobsen: that might make for a group who will feature, at least in this classification.

Red Jersey
Sprint stages don't usually see many changes in GC, but quite a few riders who did OK in the ITT finished behind the peloton today, and whenever some riders lose position, others gain places, and projected points, even if they gained no time.

I will show some of those riders selected for the games each day, who gained or lost above some number that I choose on a whim.  There might not usually be as many as I am showing today though.

And after that, our standings (although remember that as most of these points come from projected GC positions, remember that this is about as informative as to the final results as are the GC standings after a prologue and a sprint.)

I'm back where I finished the Tour de France game...

At least neither team has to bear the burden of my score on their average:
CN 463
VR  539

Tomorrow should also have big changes, and the beginnings of something that might resemble a realistic GC.
