Update #23: The lead switches hands as Pogacar dominates

It's the second week of the Tour, with no other major races going on (although the first two stages of the Sibiu Tour are in this update as well), so the scores were fairly subdued this week. But if you've been watching the Tour, you've likely seen that it's basically Pogacar and everyone else. That's great news for the two teams that have Pogacar in this year's game despite his high price.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   18-Valve. (pithy)   253
2   Londonpat   235
3   Blues in the bottle   230
4   Bicycle_Boy   226
5   Object   215

18-Valve takes top spot this week, largely thanks to the previously mentioned Pogacar and his 155 points. Throw in 80 points that Cav got for a stage win and 15 for Sagan for placing points and that was all that was needed! Londonpat gets second without Pogacar but with some well-picked stage winners in Dylan Teuns (80 points, 18 teams) and Ben O'Connor (80, 5), as well as placing points for Sagan, Yates, and even a Fabio Aru sighting (15 points for second on a stage of the Sibiu Tour). Blues in the bottle gets the final podium spot thanks to 100 points for wearing the yellow jersey for MvdP, 80 from Cav and 50 from Philipsen.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   Sneekes   (+4)
1   R_O_Shipman   (+4)
3   Galpedal   (+3)
3   Nakazar   (+3)
3   Jon_Ezeitza   (+3)

Not much movement with the subdued scores, but Sneekes and R_O_Shipman share the honors (with 97 and 171 points on the week respectively, so they are not on the previous rankings!)

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   Otoxiep87   204
2   Hugo Koblet   198.67
3   Boris98   168.67
4   Jon_Ezeitza   156
5   Bicycle_Boy   150

After a big shakeup last week, the top remains the same this week, with the exception of Bicycle Boy who steps up to the top 5 after 26 points this week.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (+1)   
2   (-1)   Total Package   10696
3   (-)   Squire   10608
4   (+1)   Otoxiep87   10440
5   (-1)   Northerner   10352
6   (+1)   Boris98   10253
7   (-1)   Armchair cyclist   10157
8   (-)   Bonimenier   9991
9   (+1)   tobydawq   9982
10   (+3)   Jon_Ezeitza   9977

Despite the fairly low scores on the week, there was enough differentiation for Object to take over the top spot. Their team outscores Total Package 215-105 on the week, and that's enough to take the lead by 16 points. With Squire just over 100 points out of first as well and the whole top ten within a breath of 10000 points, things are tight at the top. This week is another week of only stage points at the Tour (and Jersey points for those with Pogacar), with the GC of Sibiu for counter-programming. Just as the actual viewing of the Tour has shifted to intrigue as to who gets the minor placings and wins stages, so goes the CQ game.
