Stage 10  An Odd sort of a day (sorry, couldn't resist)

Sorry it's late, like much of the peloton, I had a busy morning but by the afternoon I fancied an extension to the rest day.

Green points
The stage battle won't have excited many of us in terms of our vested interests

Standings
The scores were modest, but enough to get Berflamand and Safebet into the top ten (3 and 4 place jumps respectively).  Second placed Search also scored, but it will take a lot more than the odd sixth place to close the gap appreciably.

Red points
By contrast, much more going on here, even if much of it is temporary displacement.

When two unpicked riders vault across the top 18 riders on GC, it'll be bad news for the scores of everyone.  Those who picked Kuss (0 points on the day) are probably the nearest we have to winners.  We suffer in proportion to how well our teams were doing on GC, so last placed Koronin tops the day, and leader TRiley props up the table.

The Roglic teams probably don't need to fear their loss of points too much, although they will miss out on a few days of Red Jersey bonuses.  Yates and Bernal teams are probably more bothered by this result, and those with Landa are probably just happy that the large majority of the other teams are suffering similarly.

Standings
More of a compression than a total overhaul. 
†Tiebreakers move Otoxiep back to second (the tiebreaker penalises those with a big main scorer, and MV has Roglic)

A fairly tame second week means that the restoration of GC points to the more fancied riders (or some of them at least) probably won't happen for a while, but today's final kicker might shake up the order a bit.
