Jurgen Roelandts - 0
AAron VanPoucke - 0

Nice points from Warbasse and Mathis. Mathis has now broken even for his points from last year and Warbasse is half way to his points from last year. Those were my bright spots for the week. I did not expect points at all from Warbasse so very happy for those.



Next week:

Oman

Andrea Garosio
Bryan Coquard


Andalucia:

Surgio Samitier
Tomasz Marczynski
Xavier Canellas
Rafael Valls
Jurgen Roelandts
Sepp Kuss


Algrave:

Simon Geschke
Neilson Powless
Simone Petilli
Marco Mathis

Tour de Haut Var

Logan Owen


Looks like Coquard is my best hope for any points. Maybe Kuss will have some decent form.

Total: 215 (plus 10 for Gibbons so far).

Very disappointing that neither Felline nor Cosnefroy got any points in Laigueglia. I had expected two top tens at least. Reichenbach was sacrificed in Provence, Trentin annoyingly didn't do the sprint in Almería. But Óscar Rodríguez seems to be a good pick, Boom likewise and Gibbons is continuing being awesome and I'm holding my breath a little bit until the Green Mountain.

I still haven't gotten Søren Kragh, Nibali, van der Poel, Küng, Padun, Bakelants and König in action.

This O'Connor fellow is killing me! He drops out in Oman after Gaviria drops out in Columbia. Bernal let Sosa steal his thunder. I am now well behind my plan for victory!
Thanks to Boom and Trentin for getting me something. And Kittel looking good for most of us.

Last week was alright I guess. (Only included the ones that scored points during last week races, had a few that scored zero also)

MUÑOZ Cristian Camilo - 3
OSORIO Alejandro - 21
GAUDU David - 45
TRENTIN Matteo - 60
GIBBONS Ryan - TBD
FRANKINY Kilian - 42 (Yes, my unique pick off to a nice start :) )
KITTEL Marcel - 84

Next week looks busy...

Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista Del Sol
VLASOV Aleksandr
CHAVES Esteban
TRENTIN Matteo

I hope Trentin form continues and maybe he good place pretty high on a stage or two. The others I dont expect much from. Chaves hopefully comes good soon :rolleyes:

Volta ao Algarve
ANTUNES Amaro
VERVAEKE Louis
ARU Fabio

Hopefully Aru is at the top of the race. Maybe Antunes can do something on the GC aswell.

Tour of Antalya
BARBIER Rudy

Some points from the sprint stages would be nice.

Tour Cycliste International du Haut Var
FRANKINY Kilian
CONCI Nicola
TOUZE Damien

Who knows, but I am cheering a bit extra for my unique pick Frankiny!

UAE Tour
EWAN Caleb
GAVIRIA Fernando
GAUDU David
MARECZKO Jakub
KITTEL Marcel
KANTER Max
POWER Robert
DE PLUS Laurens
BAUHAUS Phil

I dont know how much to trust the startlist since it is not confirmed at all and some teams there is only one rider listed for, but this looks pretty okay...

The one rider I was really considering and ended up leaving off my team that I'm wishing I had included is Trentin. Hope he continues to do well for those who did pick him.

Update #6: Popchu in rarefied air

This was a busy week in the game, with several smaller races spread out across the calendar. As we hit mid-February and the game starts to take shape, there will be less upheaval in the standings, and indeed we see a successful defence of the top spot in the overall. So, how did the week shake out?

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank Team Points this week
1 Popchu 342
2 PeterB 319
2 Josedin 319
4 Joelsim 310
5 del1962 301

Popchu takes the week with a pretty good haul of 342 points. Their team’s most profitable take was from the high-altitude 2.1 race in Colombia, where the combination of Nairo Quintana (8 teams, 70 points), Egan Bernal (26 teams, 60 points) and Alejandro Osorio (16 teams, 21 points) was buffered by points from Kittel and Boom in Spain, and notably 58 points from unique pick Lutsenko, who just may be picking up a few more points this week. Second place is a tie between PeterB and Josedin, which is somewhat astonishing considering their vastly different lineups. Josedin is one of the few Kittel-less teams in the game, muscling to the podium this week on the strength of unique pick Miguel Angel Lopez’s 21 points, as well as a handy 91 from Ivan Sosa (3 teams), 60 from Bernal, 28 from Hodeg and a scattering of other points. PeterB, on the other hand, has the popular Kittel and Boom, as well as Trentin, and a few other Colombians in Quintana and Henao. In a week with so many small races, all kinds of combos can work to get you to the top.

This Week's High Movers

Rank Team Up/down
1 Popchu (+20)
2 Joelsim (+18)
2 laarsland (+18)
2 Josedin (+18)
5 trackstand (+17)

A similar lineup here, with Popchu taking the double, moving up 20 spots. There’s a logjam for second, for Joelsim (not to be confused with the aforementioned Josedin) and laarsland tying Josedin to make the podium.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank Team Total
1 just_some_guy 95
2 MADRAZO 73
2 Googolplex 73
4 TheArt 68
5 Popchu 57

This competition has a bit of a quieter week at the top, with only Popchu getting points in the top 5, adding to a previous 12 points with the 45 for the win to nab 5th overall. Notable achievement further down is AupaPyama, who has scored points in four consecutive weeks, but not more than 16 points in a single week, so their team is a bit off the pace in 8th overall, but still an impressive achievement.

Top 10 Overall

Rank Up/down Team Points
1 (-) MADRAZO 1265
2 (+1) TheArt 1214
3 (-1) just_some_guy 1195
4 (+2) Squire 1163
5 (+3) Amis_Velo 1157
6 (+5) Falze 1133
7 (-) yoyokt 1126
8 (-4) Blues in the bottle 1111
9 (+9) del1962 1090
10 (+2) Otoxiep87 1083

MADRAZO enjoys the view from the top once again, defending the lead at the top with a solid week of 208 points. TheArt and jsg switch places, with TheArt inching closer to the top, gaining 26 on MADRAZO. Lots of jumping around a bit lower, as Falze, del1962, and Otoxiep87 jump into the top 10, while PremierAndrew, Londonpat and Googolplex fall out. We are still at the point of the season where the cumulative totals of the top teams can be eclipsed by some single weeks to come (eg. a GT GC week), so don’t fret if you’re nowhere near the top, and be happy but don’t get too comfortable if you are.

The hits keep coming this week with Oman, Algarve, Andalucia in the HC category, and Haut Var just for good measure. And then – what’s that? – is Opening Weekend just around the corner?

So Froome got 1 point. :lol:

I kind of did. Not so much in terms of CQ points, but I expected him to be better than this. UAE Tour would have been easy points for a Froome in decent shape. I expected a top-5 there. Not anymore.

I'm also not sure what to expect from Porte in that race, given his recent cold and sub-par performances Down Under.

MUÑOZ Cristian Camilo - 3
Indurain level confirmed. ;)

Tour Colombia was no joke, though, but I expected better given last year's Vuelta a San Juan. 7th on Alto Colorado then... weak field, though.

Thanks for the update, skids. 10 places lost, 2nd week of freefalling. But the week starts off well with a third place for my boy Venturini in Oman. Onwards and upwards.

Consistently been between 11-20 for weeks now on the total :)

I gotta be happy while it lasts, but would be fun to at least have been in the top 10 once during the duration of the game!

I was very happy with Osorio from Nippo-Vini-Fantini though! 21 points he got. Interesting to see what results he can do for the rest of the year. Already in profit. He will have more chances to score points than Munoz I think. Both were cheap picks.

Just realised I have Oomen in the Algarve too. Really have high hopes for him this year.

Nice, this week's top scorer! Thanks Skidmark for the update.

As said earlier, Osorio is doing well, although San Juan and Colombia were the perfect races for him. I don't expect too much from him in his first year in Europe.

Would be nice if Lutsenko and Lietaer could keep their current positions in Oman. Lutsenko is an unique pick. Before the season I said it was a bit of an irrational pick and other riders in his price category are probably better choices, but I still believe we have to see a 'real' breakthrough season year from him, where he can take a good haul of points in the biggest WorldTour (one day) races and the WCRR.

If Lutsenko ends up winning Oman and does well in races like Strade, AGR and LBL (races I think he could be able to do well in) you could very well be looking at some profit I believe! Especially if he also wins some stages or place high in some other stage-races. I wouldnt be surprised to see him score around or above 1000 points. He is also turning 27 this year, so right on time for maybe his best year so far.

Nil points and Dunbar DNF. Not great. Philipsen disappointing. Oomen, Pgacar and Hirschi still in the GC hunt though.

Nice 10th place for Fabbro on Green Mountain today, a very promising result. He is 13th overall now, but it could have been better if he had managed to cut his losses on stage 3. Still should be good for 30 points if he can keep his position on the final flat stage.

Søren Kragh close to being off the mark in his first start (unfortunately, no points for 6th), and with the crash he could aspire to a decent GC result.
