I still remember his Vuelta stage win. He was in the breakaway all day. At 10kms from the finish he was alone with 20'' on the bunch. I thought there was no way he would be able to keep the peloton at bay on those flat, open roads. Sure enough the sprinters team threw everything at him but the gap seemingly refuse to budge and he went on to win the stage by a few meters. That was unreal. Now that he seems to be back to that kind of form he will be very hard to stop on the French scene. FDJ's WT obligations might distract him from scoring big points though as the WT races don't really match his type of rider.
Some good points from Bardet and Rojas too, today. More unexpectedly Coquard managed to hung on to 12th in the GC

A respectable week for my team. Points from Roux, Coquard & Farrar, and Cav survived the windiest stage in Qatar.

Also 4 points to Novikov for finishing 25th in the GC should make at least 19 people happy - means he is already at 80%...

175 points this week should keep me in the top 10 I imagine.

I'm OK, how about Roux?

Some pleasing, early season results.
Coquard scoring in the GC, a bonus.

Should have got Roux but Cousin i also think can go well this year and he was in my shortlist for a while. Coquard my only bright light this week.

Novikov is 1 point away from last years score...

Nuts. Hindsight is 20/20, but my only nervousness submitting my team was that I didn't find a place for a French rider who could score big on the French circuit (I mean, Barguil, but he's on Argos), and Roux/Coquard were the 2 I tried to fit in there. Oh well, I don't think it's so much a world of trouble, there are 33 riders on my team who, if they all go well, will easily outstrip a missed pick.

That said, Farrar, Rojas and the 3 points Barguil got are hardly going to let me keep 11th place for the 4th week in a row. Oh well, once Rebellin cleans up in Tour Med I should be fine

Well, I'm out of the top 10 I guess, earned roughly 70 points

There must be a ****load of guys with Roux who passed me. Such an obvious pick in hindsight. Ah well, my bad.

Kind off hoping to be back after Tour de Med though.

Roux and Swift's efforts may just keep me in the top 10.
