Update #15: Turn Down for Wout!

WorldTour racing is back, and with it, WorldTour points. While Evenepoel started where he left off in February, winning a .HC race that didn't even have a time trial to further cement the impression that he's an essential pick for this game, another young Flandrien showed that he was back from devastating injury, with Wout Van Aert taking a very hot and dusty Strade Bianche. The result is that the winning team got over 500 points this week, meaning the CQ game is well and truly back in action.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   bminchow   522
2   Wallenquist   485
3   Sneekes   443
4   karaev   435
5   Londonpat   428

bminchow had the right combo of rare riders this week, being one of the 11 teams to pick WvA and his 180 points, as well as one of the 19 teams who believed in Joao Almeida and got rewarded with his 115 points on the week to take him well into profit for this truncated year. Sprinkle in 83 points from Chaves (14 teams), 50 from de la Cruz (7 teams), and a handful from other popular picks, and you've got a winner! Wallenquist had an almost identical lineup, less Chaves, and ends in second place, while Sneekes has the same top 2 as well with a bit less support below.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   bminchow   (+35)
2   Wallenquist   (+30)
3   Sneekes   (+28)
4   karaev   (+26)
5   Bicycle_Boy   (+25)
5   Londonpat   (+25)

Exact same podium and order here; in fact, the same top 5 plus a tie for 5th place from Bicycle Boy.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   Jakob747   230.7
2   EvansIsTheBest   131
3   Hakkie2   122
4   ChrisDK   119
5   Sestriere   89.3

Jakob747 still well out front here, but some shuffling below as ChrisDK gets taken over by two teams scoring this week and moving up in EITB and Hakkie2. 103 out of 113 teams have scored at least a point in this competition this year.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (-)   
2   (-)   EvansIsTheBest   3142
3   (-)   Hakkie2   2758
4   (+2)   western_grebe   2541
5   (-)   Object   2478
6   (+4)   18-Valve. (pithy)   2457
7   (-3)   Squire   2421
8   (+12)   hfgon1   2369
9   (+7)   Northerner   2331
10   (+8)   Leadbelly   2308

Some shakeup here, but not at the top, as Jakob, EITB and Hakkie hold onto their top 3 spots and actually solidify them by being in the top 20 on the week. Some movement down below, though, and a crazy close battle for the bottom half of the top 10... hfgon1, Northerner, and Leadbelly move into the top 10, but two of the three teams that fell out - search and team skidmark - are tied for 11th, a single point behind Leadbelly. And HelgeBlendet is only a further point back in 12th. LaFlorecita wasn't as lucky, as she falls out of the top 10, and top 20, in a single week.

This week, the races keep rolling as Occitainie finished already, as did the three Italian races combined into one, and we've got a bunch more to come, with Pologne, Milano-Torino, Ventoux Challenge, Czech Tour, Tour de l'Ain, and the first monument of the season in the route-altered Milan-San Remo. Holy cow, these are gonna be some packed weeks!
