Update #3: Object Lesson on How to Win a CQ Week

The CQ manager game kicked into high gear this week, with results from Gabon but most importantly the first World Tour points of the year in the TdU. The winners of both of these races were only chosen by two teams, so there is some stratification at the top, and of course with so many points on offer, the table is in upheaval.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   Object   564
2   Nicosix   485
3   ChrisDK   430
4   zaka_fan   390
5   will10   338

Porte with his 386 points - already at 59% of his 2019 score - would be good enough for 5th place on this table on their own, so it was always likely that the winning team would be one of the two that chose Porte. And indeed, Object runs away with the week combining Porte points with 121 points from Simon Yates (a bit more popular, on 84 teams) and a decent 37 from Rob Power and finishing points from a few others. Nicosix nabs a very good second place without Porte, but a well-rounded team effort thanks mainly to Yates, Sam Bennett (117 points, 5 teams), surprise Gabon winner Jordan Levasseur (120 points at a cost of 4!, 2 teams), and rare picks Biniam Hailu and Jeremy Cabot pick some up as well. ChrisDK nabs a podium spot as the other Porte-haver.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   ChrisDK   (+84)
2   Riverside   (+64)
3   hfgon1   (+63)
4   CQPlayer7373   (+58)
5   Yellow Knight   (+52)

Well. You know there's going to be some serious movement in the first real points week of the season, and there certainly was.  ChrisDK went from zero points on the season to getting 430 this week, so an 84 spot jump in a competition with 113 teams is about as big as it gets (88 teams had scored a point before this week). Riverside rode Yates, Philipsen (111, 2 teams) and unique pick Emmanuel Morin (82 points) to a 64 spot jump, and hfgon1 celebrates a 63 spot jump as one of the 2 teams to pick Matthew Holmes (60 points), as well as George Bennett (90) and Yates.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   will10   69
2   Object   45
2   the asian   45
2   Fivezzz   45
5   greenedge   42

Object takes 45 points to tie the other two weekly winners on the table, while will10 extends their lead by scoring the third week in a row (22 points this time). greenedge also scores for the third week in a row, netting 8 more points to land in the top 5 here.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (+35)   
2   (+50)   Nicosix   515
3   (-1)   will10   475
4   (+10)   zaka_fan   450
5   (+84)   ChrisDK   430
6   (-3)   dimasotf   393
7   (+7)   18-Valve. (pithy)   391
8   (-3)   greenedge   382
9   (+9)   del1962   380
10   (+1)   Marek   374

Three teams from last week's top 10 remain this week - the aforementioned consistent will10 and greenedge, as well as dimasotf.  But last week's leader the asian falls to 12th, and this week's top 2 on the week leap 35 and 50 spots to become the top 2 overall. This week, the points keep coming from a variety of places: currently in San Juan, the new 1.1 Race Torquay and then the Cadel race in Australia, and of course, the start of racing in Europe with the Mallorca Challenge and finally the continental opener in Marseille on Sunday.
