AC, thank you for the update.
Today really shook the GC. I think Hugo87's bet was worth it.

This is indeed a good sign for him, but in the end I think Quintana will end up higher than Contador. Interesting Vuelta, that is.

De Marchi gave my team the first win. Now i need Tjallingi to win one from break.

Murali seems to have covered all the scores again: thanks to him for those couple of days.

CN are being horribly inconsistent with the names they are giving riders, and failing o list some finishers, which is causing havoc to my spreadsheet that worked pretty well during the Tour, but I eventually got there for the first projected sores update.

The top twenty projected riders (for those new, this means stage scores and leadership points that are guaranteed, plus points allocated for GC position and points and mountains categories as though nothing were to change in those rankings for the rest of the race)
VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro 706 0 teams
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander 402 22 teams
CONTADOR VELASCO Alberto 342 1 teams
FROOME Chris 328 44 teams
DEGENKOLB John 281 0 teams
RODRIGUEZ OLIVER Joaquim 243 3 teams
CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban 246 30 teams
BOUHANNI Nacer 238 0 teams
MATTHEWS Michael 238 2 teams
GESINK Robert 191 1 teams
ARU Fabio 173 23 teams
MARTIN Daniel 162 17 teams
BARGUIL Warren 150 12 teams
KELDERMAN Wilco 150 4 teams
CARUSO Damiano 129 0 teams
NIEVE ITURRALDE Mikel 122 0 teams
SANCHEZ GONZALEZ Samuel 112 5 teams
URAN URAN Rigoberto 98 10 teams
DE MARCHI Alessandro 95 2 teams
MAS BONET Lluis Guillermo 85 0 teams

Had Anacona at the Giro game, he was useless and know he does this.

Edit - At least I wasn't wrong with Contador, it could payoff very well.

Really happy with my Colombian trio. Only problem is that some other guys have them as well, with possibly better other riders.

Projected points:

Major relevant profits and losses:
ANACONA GOMEZ Winner Andrew 313 12 teams
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander 143 22 teams
CONTADOR VELASCO Alberto 60 1 teams
URAN URAN Rigoberto 54 10 teams
ARU Fabio 25 23 teams
HESJEDAL Ryder 22 5 teams
...
ELISSONDE Kenny -12 7 teams
FROOME Chris -12 44 teams
BARGUIL Warren -15 12 teams
HOFLAND Moreno -15 1 teams
PARDILLA BELLON Sergio -18 5 teams
TEN DAM Laurens -18 2 teams
KANGERT Tanel -19 2 teams
GESINK Robert -25 1 teams
ZUBELDIA AGIRRE Haimar -29 1 teams
KELDERMAN Wilco -51 4 teams
CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban -128 30 teams

Much of the gain for Anacona might prove to be temporary, as might all the points fpr Quintana for topping the projected GC. But these rankings might be more of an indicator of final rankings than those after the TT on Tuesday.

If you have any Europcar rider, you may find that your score in the projected scores table has changed.

CN this morning published an interview with Romain Sicard, discussing his ambitions for the rest of the Vuelta, which caught my eye as I had been using their results listings, so had been lead to believe that he had DNFed on stage 7. Investigation revealed that they have made a pig's ear of all the Europcar results, but luckily Europcar have not achieved many high placings.

If you have Sicard, your score has increased by 42; if you chose Nauleau, you've just lost 15 (and won't win any more, as he has gone home), and if you have Berhane, you are 17 points down, as he is 177th in GC, not 31st.

If you have Dan Craven, you are not third in the mountain rankings, so you've lost 25 points: the converse is true for teams who have Cousin.

This is going to be a pain if I have to double check all CN's results for accuracy.

i am already feeling bad for choosing Kelderman instead of other GC riders who were cheaper than him :(

Well, Hugo87, you might just win another GT here! I don't see anyone beating Contador now.

yep. Hugo took a nice bet, and it paid off.
Saddened by Quintana fall. I lose loads of points and hope :(

Well I took the risk on Contador and his paying off, even without the Quintana fall (which off course I didn't like) he would be leading right now.

But other teams with Uran and Anacona are still ahead of me, plus Guardini gave me 0 points till this point and i don't have Chaves too.

1º, 15º (Barguil) and 16º (Navarro) won't be enough to win.
