Never mind - 2nd and 5th for Riabushenko(!!!) and Nibali :)

Nice, I got 5th and 6th with Nibali and Carboni, I also had Aru.
Dani Munoz and Rivera also scored some nice points in Romania.

Think Planckaert and Lammertink have gained about 250 points at Luxembourg. Very handy after a fairly moribund Giro

It's all about Porte at the Dauphine. Gaudu and Lambrecht will be stymied by the TT, and can't really expect anything from Padun or Atapuma

Van Der Horn continues to be an astonishingy bad pick. Will be lucky to reach 25% at this rate, despite loads of race days

Coquard already in profit which is great.

I had him last year along with B Planckaert and Gaudu, yet decided not to pick those 2 for some reason. A decision I regret...

Dani Muñoz is a very nice pick. Together with Thibault Ferasse probably the best pick of the week. Both cost 2 points and won a 2.1 race... Not sure if anyone picked Ferasse in this game but I know a couple did in the youth game

Update #22: MADRAZO wins the week

The week inbetween the Giro and the Dauphiné is not as barren as you'd think. Stage races galore made for plenty of opportunities for the CQ managers, and a couple of rarely picked 2-pointers really showed their worth by winning two of them.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank Team Points this week
1 MADRAZO 473
2 Ferminal 462
3 Jancouver 417
4 Squire 363
5 repre 353

It's a podium of very experienced CQ-ers: MADRAZO, Ferminal and Jancouver have all participated in every CQ game edition. MADRAZO takes the week with a slim margin ahead of Ferminal with both teams profiting from Thibault Ferasse's surprising win in Boucles de la Mayenne. Ferminal even has the other stage-race-winning 2-pointer in Daniel Munoz, but MADRAZO outscores them with the help of Coquard, Planckaert and Kump, who all get more than 50 points. Jancouver in 3rd has big contributions from Munoz and Coquard.

This Week's High Movers

Rank Team Up/down
1 Squire (+13)
2 repre (+11)
3 Ferminal (+9)
3 oliveira (+9)
5 Joelsim (+8)

With 4th on the week and a poor starting position, yours truly is the highest mover with a jump of 13 places. repre, 5th placed on the week, also moves more than 10 placings. Team Squire profits from Coquard and Planckaert in addition to 2nd placed overall in Luxembourg, Maurits Lammertink, who finally comes to life. It seems like I always do well when I'm the one doing the updates. Maybe I should sign up for more months of updates next year...

Green Jersey Competition

Rank Team Total
1 skidmark 171
2 ruvu75 166
3 TheArt 160
4 armchairclimber 153
4 Googolplex 153

skidmark keeps the lead and scores 4 more points this week, while ruvu75 is rewarded with 16 points for 8th place on the week, and moves from 5th to 2nd place. None of the others in the top5 get on the scoreboard this week.

Top 10 Overall

Rank Up/down Team Points
1 (-) skidmark 7730
2 (-) fauniera 7618
3 (-) Object 7472
4 (-) karaev 7432
5 (+4) ruvu75 7305
6 (+1) Kryvo 7293
7 (-2) TheArt 7290
8 (-2) DFA123 7195
9 (-1) Nyssinator 7187
10 (-) Tigerion 7103

skidmark extends his lead with another 40 points on fauniera and gains 161 points on Object. ruvu75 rides their good week courtesy of Daniel Munoz' win in Romania to 5th place overall, a jump of 4 placings. No new entries in the top 10 this week.

Thanks, Squire!!!

Hats off to the top dogs. Amazing. And for me, the rookie, it was a miserable week. But I have many horses in many races this week, particularly in the Dauphine, so hoping to bounce back. Top-half remains the objective.

Not as bad as I thought. Thank you Coquard for getting into positive points and scoring half my points for this week.

Being 4th this far in to the season is the highest I have ever been... Could've been much better with Bernal healthy tho...I also have Kittel, Cav and Aru who are not scoring anything so I got to say that I am really happy with the rest of my team! Hope Bernal comes back strong in TdF because I do not havevmany GC guys for that race..

Nice. For TDF I have Bernal, Porte and Nibali (and Louis! Haaahaa). Maybe not too bad. And we'll see if Gaviria, Trentin and Theuns can get a stage win. Cav? I don't think so!

Also, is it too early to talk about TDF? I'm loving the Duaphine so far (Thanks to Wout). I try to keep July open to watch TDF, but screwed that up with work trips.

I think we have discovered today who the most popular pick next year will be.

Have to see how his recovery goes. However, I have my eye on a different injured rider who it would be surprising if he's not back before the end of the season.

Been banking on Froome to score big and take me close to the Top 10.
Game's done for me.
Hope Froome will be able to get back to his former level but I highly doubt it.

To be honest I hate this, and I could easily see him return at Schlecklet-level which would make him a horrible pick, and that makes the decision even worse :o

Nice to see Barguil looking better in Dauphiné. Funnily enough, despite his miserable season so far, he's still a couple points ahead of his 2018 season up to this point :o have to wonder what could have happened if he hadn't been injured in 2 bad crashes.

Also good to see Vliegen score a top-10 in Belgium, CQ has him 7th on GC but I think that should be 8th. Either way around 60 points for him :)

Evenepoel secured the GC and now has 426 points from a cost of 0. Really not a wise decision to not have picked him.

Wow, Kuss is going to get a handful of stage points for today. Well, I'll take whatever I can get.
