Stage 1 Falling like skittles, and Ala on a mur

Green points
For our new entrants (great to have you), these points cannot be lost, and are earned by the top ten in each stage.  Unlike the Tour's Green Jersey, the same points scale applies to every stage, so climbers can be just as valuable here as sprinters. 
Riderpoints teams
ALAPHILIPPE Julian      80      3
MATTHEWS Michael      50      0
ROGLIC Primoz      35      0
HAIG Jack      25      17
KELDERMAN Wilco      15      18

GAUDU David      5      3
HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres      3      15
MOLLEMA Bauke      2      0
THOMAS Geraint      1      25

I'll normally only give the top ten (or so) in this classification, but for today, let's all get a mention, as nearly everyone has scored.  The three Alaphilippe teams are clear to see: Salvaranni also has Gaudu and Higuita.

Yellow Points
This is the main game: the points for each rider, and therefore the teams, are the sum of stage points, GC and sprint/KoM classifications projected as though current positions are held on the last stage, and the 20 points given each day to the overnight leader (Yellow jersey bonus).  Thus Alaphilippe now has 80 stage points +600 as putative GC winner as it stands + 80 as leader of the points classification + 50 as 2nd in polka dot category + 20 as overnight leader =830 points.  Because he can lose places in GC and the two jersey classifications, he can lose points, but the stage and yellow jersey points are secure, even if he were to fail to reach Paris.

Last, but by no means least, is the inter-forum battle, with teams representing Cycling News Forum and VeloRooms, with the mean average score being taken for each group.  There have always been more teams in the CN camp, but this time the imbalance of numbers is more marked, which I guess makes the performance of each VR team more important.

CN (AlienPerformance, Berflamand, BicycleBoy, BlueRoads, BluesInTheBottle, Bminchow, Bonimenier, Comodoro, Del1962, DJSprtsch, Earns1985, Fivezzz, Googolplex, JonEzeitza, Kazistuta, Koronin, Laarsland, Lecko, Northerner, Pantani_lives, Ray10, RedheadDane, Rufs, Salvarani, Shalgo, Titan31, Triley36, Vladimir, Yellow_Knight)  825
VR (AmisVelo, ArchieBoy, BikeRacer33, Leadbelly, Mellow_Velo, Otoxiep87, Rote_Laterne, Search, ZakaFan)  805
My score is not included in this: my neutrality is impeccable.


To investigate further, the spreadsheet is updated (so long as I remember to press save) each night as I do the update, and is available at the same location (here) throughout, although I won't post the link every evening.

And for the sake of my work, I hope I will normally have updates done rather earlier than this.
