Well they say that a stage victory pretty much makes the giro a success so I'll take it

Stage 8 Long climb to Montevergine

Purple points


GC guys to the fore, but not the most expensive ones: that is the recipe for plenty of teams to score: all of us, in fact. Some comeback for all the Formolo teams after his poor day on Thursday

Pink Points

Time bonuses boost Pinot ahead of Pozzovivo on GC, and moves up in GC for Carapaz and Lopez, and down for O'Connor, means there is some change in projections as well as the daily points.

That lead is slightly wider than it was this morning, and although the podium remains the same, Rote Laterne in4th is a lot closer to it than he was. Nathanptz is the highest placed riser (to 6th from 8th), Scrool gets a leap of 8 places to appear in the top ten, and Kazistuta's movement is one better.

Stage 9 To the Emperor's Field at the Big Rock of Italy.

Purple points

Loads of points today, but there is some consistency emerging between who is getting the big points rather than the crumbs.

Pink points

He couldn't move up in GC standings, but Yates still picks up KoM and Points jersey positions, as well as the stage points. Riders who could stay close on Etna, but not on this much longer climb, have slipped back on GC, so several riders gain places, and projected points, and others lose. Dumoulin and his team will not have considered the day unsuccessful, despite what the points on the day say.

Standings

The top 4, those who have both Yates and Chaves, now have a very large margin over the rest: they stay in the same order, but the gaps between them all have narrowed slightly. Nathanptz, Carlo A, Scrool and Russell all move up in the top ten, mainly as Dennis drops to a more realistic position, and the biggest jump of the day is shared by Axl and Kazistuta.

The top four, those with the Yates-Chaves combination, remain on top, but the two other Yates teams are now close behind them, and Chaves' contribution is now much reduced, although his stage points and 2nd in the KoM are still there. Of the other Yatesians, Scrool was already in the top ten (8th this morning), but Yellow Knoght has a jump from 14th into the elite. Bicycle Boy and Safe Bet far outstrip him, with jumps of 20 and 21 places respectively.

Daily podium and into the purple top 10. I'll take it. Loss of points for Chaves hurts but considering he already has 100 points in the bank he will probably still work out to be a decent return for his points.

The top four, those with the Yates-Chaves combination, remain on top, but the two other Yates teams are now close behind them, and Chaves' contribution is now much reduced, although his stage points and 2nd in the KoM are still there. Of the other Yatesians, Scrool was already in the top ten (8th this morning), but Yellow Knoght has a jump from 14th into the elite. Bicycle Boy and Safe Bet far outstrip him, with jumps of 20 and 21 places respectively.

ugh. Chavez!! i was dominating


You still are: you only lost 8 points of your lead yesterday. Of the 6 Yates teams (the top 6 in GC), the three immediately behind you suffered the loss of Chaves' points, and the other two have not earned as much with the riders they picked instead. Indeed, both have picks more expensive than Yates with fewer projected points, even after yesterday, than Chaves (Lopez and Poels)

KoM standing and stage points mean that Chaves is still not a bad pick: no-one costing less has gained more points than him, and he is currently the 12th highest scoring rider.

A stage won by a rider that I was the only one to pick, I'm happy with that no matter where I end up :D

Other than purple points, the most relevant issues are Aru finally getting ahead of some of those who were never tipped to beat him, and Woods getting blocked at the bottom of the hill (as far as I can find out)

Bminchow's lead was big enough to accommodate Woods' losses today: Mellow Velo's 2nd place was not so secure, and he falls off the podium. No other changes in the top ten, and a 5 place jump for SemirS was the biggest.

I'm not expecting much drama other than purple points for the next couple of days, but I thought a team featuring Chaves, Woods and Meintjes might be competitive, so what do I know?

Again, very little change apart from the points described above. Highest position in GC to see any change was 39th, vacated by Chaves as his drop continues. The withdrawal of Kangert will hit many teams, but they may already feel that his selection had already hit their teams.

With no-one spending big on Froome, it is between the same six Yatesians, as on so many stages this race.

Standings

The Yates teams still dominate, but there has been quite a bit of movement among them. Bminchow remains in the lead, but the losses of Bennett and Dennis bring him much closer to his pursuers, and in particular Rote Laterne, who rises from 4th to a much closer second than we have seen since the race started. Los Brolin had the worst day of the Yatesians, dropping from 2nd to 5th, Bennett and Pinot having hurt his score today. The rest of the top ten remain in their positions, with Kazistuta the highest non-Yatesian to move upwards, and Googolplex the biggest (12 place) riser of the day.

Pink points

Ciccone's points have been boosted by his rise to 2nd in the KoM standings: those are also the points that Chaves has lost today. Woods has been a particularly volatile pick in terms of his GC position day to day, and the teams that have Aru had probably already realised that he was not going to do much for them, but if they still had hope it has gone now.

Standings

A change in leadership for the first time since the race got to Tel Aviv. Bminchow (who as mentioned above, should recover somewhat through Rohan Dennis on Tuesday) drops to third, now behind Rote Laterne and formerly 4th placed Scrool. Kazistuta and Googolplex (the highest riser of the day, 8 places) get into the top ten, which now seems to be the battle for what would be the podium if it weren't for Yates.

Carapaz was way more genius of a pic then Yates. So I bow to those people. But I'm not giving up. Come on time trial!!

Rest Day

I have unscheduled free time this afternoon, so with no stage to watch, a little calculation of what has been.

Purple points
I identified several stages ago some sprinter heavy teams that might have targetted this aspect of the game, but with the CQ system giving the same points for all types of stages, the small number of stages that sprinters have had to enjoy, and the accumulation of pink jersey wearer points, this is a very different table to the maglia cyclamina. The Yatesians have had the top 6 positions since stage 10, and this is why:

Stage points (and pink jersey wearer points in brackets where relevant) for riders with points equivalent to 2nd place on a stage or higher:

YATES Simon 330 (+180 so 510) 6 teams
BENNETT Sam 255 2 teams
VIVIANI Elia 250 0 team
DUMOULIN Tom 151 (+18, so 169) 1 team
BATTAGLIN Enrico 126 0 team
DENNIS Rohan 42 (+ 72 so 114) 9 teams
PINOT Thibaut 109 24 teams
CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban 101 36 teams
CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio 95 5 teams
POZZOVIVO Domenico 87 1 team
FORMOLO Davide 85 20 teams
VAN POPPEL Danny 85 14 teams
MODOLO Sacha 80 3 teams
WELLENS Tim 77 0 team
FROOME Chris 71 0 team
MOHORIC Matej 70 1 team
BONIFAZIO Niccolo 65 5 teams
LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel 64 25 teams
MARECZKO Jakub 62 2 teams
WOODS Michael 43 17 teams
GONÇALVES Jose Isidro Maciel 42 0 team
VISCONTI Giovanni 40 1 team
DENZ Nico 40 0 team


% of cost recouped in guaranteed points:
YATES Simon 63.0 6 teams
BATTAGLIN Enrico 53.2 0 team
DENZ Nico 44.9 0 team
BENNETT Sam 34.6 2 teams
CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban 27.9 36 teams
VAN POPPEL Danny 26.0 14 teams
BONIFAZIO Niccolo 25.2 5 teams
CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio 20.5 5 teams
FORMOLO Davide 20.2 20 teams
DENNIS Rohan 19.6 9 teams
GONÇALVES Jose Isidro Maciel 18.3 0 team
MODOLO Sacha 16.6 3 teams
GIBBONS Ryan 16.0 7 teams
VIVIANI Elia 13.5 0 team
MOHORIC Matej 11.7 1 team
MARECZKO Jakub 10.4 2 teams

For some riders, this is only a small proportion of their points, but these ones are in the bank and can't me lost.

Pink points

When we add in the projected points, for the Sprints and KoM jerseys as well as the GC, we get the points that the points that make up our pink points competition:

YATES Simon 1105pts 6 teams
DUMOULIN Tom 544 1 team
POZZOVIVO Domenico 409 1 team
PINOT Thibaut 389 24 teams
VIVIANI Elia 335 0 team
CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio 311 5 teams
BENNETT Sam 310 2 teams
LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel 304 25 teams

DENNIS Rohan 234 9 teams
BENNETT George 185 7 teams

CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban 141 36 teams
WOODS Michael 121 17 teams
O'CONNOR Ben 112 9 teams
GENIEZ Alexandre 110 0 team
MODOLO Sacha 110 3 teams
GONÇALVES Jose Isidro Maciel 108 0 team
MOHORIC Matej 108 1 team
OOMEN Sam 105 0 team
VAN POPPEL Danny 105 14 teams

Bennett (G), Bilbao, Konrad, O'Connor, Geniez, and Oomen get into this list with very few purple points: I guess that identifies them as Zubeldia-like.

As percentages of spend:
BONNET William (infinite %age) 3 teams

A few there to condemn all of our selection policies

Splitting the Yatesians
For as long as Simon Yates (are we all meant to call him Simon Peter Yates now?) remains invincible, or even if he loses a couple of places, it is hard to see the stranglehold on the top positions of those 6 teams relenting. So what other picks make the difference between them, and how will they gain or lose points from here on? (Asterisk indicates riders unique among these six teams)

Has Yates done enough?
Not whether he has enough to win the race, but given that his guaranteed points are already more than the points for winning the GC, and that his teams have riders that will move up if he were to suddenly withdraw, I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see what would happen if he were to fail to emerge on the start ramp for tomorrow's time trial.

And it appears that he has: the top three remain as they are, Nathanptz would move above 2 of the Yatesians, but Yellow Knoght would plummet to 16th. Bicycle Boy, as the only team with Dumoulin, would gain most, but would only rise to 8th.

Stage 16 The Time Trial/motor drafting challenge

Purple points
Time trial specialists, rather like sprinters, are hard to pick in these games: if they are good enough to get many points, they may be too expensive for the few opportunities they get. Some TTers (like err, Aru? Seriously??)are, of course, GC contenders, at least for the top ten, so they may get a look in.

10 AmisVelo 518

As predicted, Bminchow's lead grows again. A few Dennis teams reappear in the lower part of the top ten.

Pink points

Getting overtaken by Froome and/or Dennis is the main thing that happened points wise to relevant riders today, with a few exceptions.

DENNIS Rohan 165 9 teams

A very steep dropaway after the Dennis teams, but those are of course the teams that may suffer if the climbers behind him on GC claw back time of stages 18-20:
1 Bminchow 159 (Dennis, Yates, Formolo, and only Bennett of the main fallers)

Standings

The long term leader was best on the day: the two that overtook him on Sunday were 2 of the worst 5 on the day. Bminchow is therefore restored to the lead, such is the effect if having Dennis rather than Crapaz and Lopez in a timt trial. But if they regain that time in the mountains to come, then all is still in the balance.
Del1962 becomes the best of the rest, and leads The Pirate81 and Ruvu75 into the top ten, while the best riser of the day, going up 17 places, is Armchair Cyclist, which can only mean that I must be expected to fall back again almost as quickly.

Just about every team has one or two riders who could feature tomorrow, assuming we are to be allowed one stage for the break. Randomly distributed purple points (+ 18 for the Yates teams), and pink points that simply echo that, lie ahead.
