Update #16: bminchow doubles up while Evans regains the lead

We are back! Our first monument of the season and our first WT race since the return, and we have a week where some teams broke 1000 points, a harbinger of things to come in this compressed season. Let's get right to it!

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   bminchow   1060
2   mineralJ   1049
3   karaev   1038
4   Lortnoc   1002
5   LosBrolin   1000

It's pretty hard to double up on weekly wins in this game save from the small-point bookends of the season, but bminchow manages the impressive feat, edging out mineralJ and karaev for the weekly lead with 1060 points. Of course the lodestone of bminchow's team the last two weeks has been Wout van Aert, who I forgot got a top 3 in Milan-Torino before winning MSR, scoring a massive 365 this week to top last week's already impressive Strade Bianche. The rest of the top of the table isn't the same as last week though, so it wasn't all van Aert - bminchow had a good mix of > 50 points from popular riders (Yates, Kwiatkowski, Aru) and less popular riders (Chaves, Kelderman, Bouhanni sorta). mineralJ had van Aert, Yates and Kwiatko and also previously unmentioned Pinot and Gaviria. karaev landed in third with points from somehow Evenepoel and van Aert but still escaped the win due to less ancillary support.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   LosBrolin   (+32)
2   bminchow   (+31)
3   Lortnoc   (+30)
4   Wallenquist   (+28)
5   tom_jelte   (+24)

LosBrolin rockets up the standings, and just edges out bminchow to keep their team from achieving the double (or the double-double, since bminchow topped both last week as well). LosBrolin achieved 1000 points on the week despite not having van Aert; apart from Evenepoel, their team was one of 3 to get Michael Matthews' 145 points, as well as a big contribution from the more popular Simon Yates. bminchow jumps another 31 spots after jumping 35 last week, while Lortnoc rounds out the podium with a similar stable of riders to the other high scorers.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   Jakob747   230.7
2   EvansIsTheBest   131
3   Hakkie2   122
4   ChrisDK   119
5   karaev   103.3

No movement or points at the very top here; karaev gets 30 points to jump into the top 5, juuust edging out bminchow who has 103 points overall thanks to the maximum 90 in the last two weeks.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (+1)   
2   (-1)   Jakob747   3879
3   (-)   Hakkie2   3551
4   (-)   western_grebe   3485
5   (+1)   18-Valve. (pithy)   3342
6   (+11)   karaev   3299
7   (+1)   hfgon1   3248
8   (+7)   Londonpat   3214
9   (-4)   Object   3212
10   (+1)   skidmark   3203

Before the shutdown, EvansIsTheBest and Jakob747 were trading blows atop the standings, and that has continued in the slow restart, and now into the full-blown restart. EITB manages 797 points to Jakob's 608 this week, and retakes first place as a result. Jakob looks to swing back this week with Pogacar and Higuita in action. The top half of the top 10 is relatively stable, but lower down there's some movement and a very tight 96 points separating 6th from 10th. karaev, Londonpat and team skidmark enter the top 10, while Squire, Leadbelly and Northerner slide out.

This week, this mad lib of a season continues, coming out of Milan San Remo and the Tour of Poland into the Dauphine and our second monument of the season, Il Lombardia.
