Update #10: The End of Act I



As Paris-Nice improbably lurched towards it's truncated end, the outlook for cycling fans was as bleak as the early-week weather on the race. Tirenno-Adriatico had already been turfed, as well as Strade Bianche and Milan-San Remo, and in between the first and final stage of Paris-Nice, pretty much everything else for the forseeable future was up in the air as a global pandemic spread with unprecedented speed. The impact on the CQ game, although certainly low on the priority list for all of us right now, was a bit skewed with no other races, and with 7 WT teams pulling out before the start and 2 more before the end. It was hard to try to savor it and appreciate the racing, but some teams in this game still appreciated the points they got this week. So, here we go, the last update until there is some racing again...



This Week's Top Scorers




Rank   Team   Points this week
1   christopherrowe   610
2   Leadbelly   515
3   search   509
4   tobydawq   472
5   ThePirate81   421


A clear victory this week for christopherrowe, as their team is the only one in the game who has a very impressive looking Tiesj Benoot. Benoot's 341 points this week will leave questions of what could have been this classics season, but what's on the ledger already is pretty darn good. Throw in 213 points for Sergio Higuita (4 teams) and that's already enough for the weekly win, with handsful (handfuls?) of points from Asgreen, Paret-Paintre, and Arndt to round it out. Leadbelly cracks 500 points for second place entirely on the points of two riders - 375 from winner Max Schachmann (2 teams) and 140 from Thibaut Pinot (60 teams). search rounds out the podium with 509 as the other Schachmann owner, but swaps out Pinot for Soren Kragh (119 points, 43 teams).



This Week's High Movers




Rank   Team   Up/down
1   christopherrowe   (+48)
2   Leadbelly   (+39)
3   search   (+35)
4   tobydawq   (+32)
5   Sestriere   (+26)
5   ThePirate81   (+26)


Exactly the same table and order here, save for Sestriere, who is tied with ThePirate81 for 5th (their team is 6 points behind in 6th in the other rankings).



Green Jersey Competition



Rank   Team   Total
1   Jakob747   154
2   Hakkie2   116
3   EvansIsTheBest   113
4   Leadbelly   80
5   ChrisDK   79


Jakob747's team extends their lead in this competition this week, scoring 14 points in the rankings to nab points in the Green Jersey competition (reminder - points go to the top 15 weekly scorers) for an impressive 6th out of 10 weeks so far. 2nd and 3rd stand pat (EvansIsTheBest gets 1 point for a multiple-way tie for 14th on the week), but Leadbelly's second on the week nabs 35 points to leap to 4th.



Top 10 Overall



Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (-)   
EvansIsTheBest
2733
2   (+1)   Jakob747   2686
3   (-1)   Hakkie2   2407
4   (-)   Squire   2250
5   (+2)   Object   2218
6   (-1)   western_grebe   2186
7   (+7)   skidmark   2094
8   (+14)   LaFlorecita   2073
9   (-1)   18-Valve. (pithy)   2065
10   (-1)   sodak_za   2061


Both leader EvansIsTheBest and 2nd place Jakob747 were in the top 15 this week, and so they consolidate their lead over the rest of the field. Hakkie2 had a healthy buffer a few weeks ago and so a bad week (99th on the week) only slides to third, while there's a good cluster of teams a few hundred points behind. Teams skidmark and LaFlorecita leap into the top 10 overall, while GeraintTooFast and Mayomaniac slide out.



This leaderboard may be preserved in amber for some time! I will certainly be posting in this thread and would be interested in talking about various riders on our teams or other things to pass the time, but with no racing on the horizon and a still-scary level of uncertainty as to how far things are going to spread and how our daily lives will be impacted, this is likely the last update for awhile. Take care out there!
