1 BOECKMANS Kris 80 1
7 MARKUS Barry 24 1
8 JANS Roy 20 3
13 ZABEL Rick 8 1
15 THEUNS Edward 6 8
17 VAN LERBERGHE Bert 5 1

Not a surprise that the team with Boeckmans was top rider of the day: even less of a surprise when one realises that that team (Not My Circus) also features Jans and Theuns.

No other team managed to double up on point scorers today, so you can work out for yourselves who had selected whom.

1 NotMyCircus 106
2 Batchuba 24
3 Armchair 20
3 Comodoro 20
5 PBlazer 8
6 Asdfgh101 6
6 Joelsim 6
6 Karaev 6
6 Leadbelly 6
6 LosBrolin 6
6 RoteLaterne 6
6 Vesica 6
13 Madrazo 5

Not My Circus, having dropped from 2nd to 16th after the last race, bounces most of the way back, to 5th. Batchuba moved up by 4 places, but only to 26th. A few other one place rises and concomitant falls, but nothing worth publishing a full table over.

Sunday should see more substantial scoring.

Team Points for this race

Jancouver is the only manager to have picked 2 of the top ten: Comodoro and Just Some Guy combine Boassen Hagen and Roelandts (10th and 11th): all the other teams have no more than one main scorer.

New rankings
DJW was joint 5th on the day, and so further extends his lead to over 100 points. Del1962 and LightBing, previously 2nd and 4th, had nothing but 5 pointers to their credit, and so they allow Alykaptan, Not My Circus and Geraint Too Fast to make progress within the top ten. Madrazo crashes into the top ten on the strength of a 5 place rise. Of the top teams on the day, Jancouver moves up 14 places and third on the day JSG moved up by 10, the second highest jump up the table. Comodoro, however, has more than tripled his total score on the strength of today's points, and yet only moves up one place, to second last.

Scrool07 is the uniquely wise/lucky manager to have included Wallays (this one, anyway: Jancouver has his younger brother)

Points earned today
Picking the day's winner was not enough to be top scorer on the day, as Joelsim had not only Theuns and Van Kiersbulck, but also Bystrom (a unique pick). Los Brolin paired Theuns with another unique pick, Benoot, and Not My Circus also beat the remaining Theuns teams by including Tsatevitch and Jans.

New standings
No points today for DJW, who like Geraint Thomas on the Poggio, had momentarily looked like his lead might be decisive (or at least enough so to get a Eurosport commentator excited), and Not My Circus is now hot on his heels, and up one place. Asdfgh101 and Rote Laterne each take a substantial Theuns-powered leap, to 3rd and 4th respectively, while Alykaptan slips from 2nd to 5th, and Karaev usurps Oliveira farther down the top ten. The days top scorers move up by 15 and 14 places, but not yet to occupy prominent positions, while third on the day puts some distance between Los Brolin and his former last place.

Classica Corsica

It was dubious as to whether this would merit inclusion: it won't have made much difference either way by the end of the game.

The one notable thing was the continued good value of Felline as a pick: at present he is outscored only by Stybar (among selected riders)

7th, Felline, 24 points for 3 teams (DJW, our leader, Italian Gigolo who moves up 1 place, and Scrool07, who moves up three positions)
15th, Konrad, 6 points for Los Brolin (no change in rank)
18th, El Fares, 5 points for Oliveira (no change in position)

That's all: lots more points due tomorrow in Harelbeke

E3 Harelbeke

For many, the main significance of today was not the points won, but the loss of chances in the weeks ahead.

But first, let's deal with the positive side of things. We have some popular riders among the high scorers
Scoring riders
Position, name, points , no of teams
2, STYBAR Zdenek, 132, 17
5, VANMARCKE Sep, 86, 17
7, ROELANDTS Jürgen, 66, 10

23, GATTO Oscar, 13, 4
26, STANNARD Ian, 10, 37
27, VANDENBERGH Stijn, 9, 17

We also had, between us, named 29 of the 5 point finishers, including STANNARD Ian, VANDENBERGH Stijn, HAUSSLER Heinrich, GAUDIN Damien, VANSUMMEREN Johan, PAOLINI Luca and DEVENYNS Dries, who were each named on more than ten teams.


Points earned today
Despite not picking his near-namesake (no-one else had the day's winner either), Geraint Too Fast is a fitting top scorer for the day, by quite a margin. 10 or the 12 riders in his team scored, and the four top ten finishers that made it into our teams all made it into his.
Asdfgh101 lacked Vanmarcke, but had three of those four top ten men, and so managed second above those who combined Stybar and Vanmarcke (Del1962, Nepetalactone, JosephD and LightBing). Madrazo also had three of those 4 big scorers, but the one he missed was Stybar.

New standings

DJW had a good top ten position today, and holds onto his lead, but only by a single point, and asdfgh101 is the only other team within 100 points. Despite the large number of points won today, most of the highest scorers today were already high placed (not least because the Stybar-Vanmarcke combo was also the key to top points in Strade Bianchi) and so there were not huge positional changes. Akuryo, Amis Velo, Joseph D and Jancouver, with jumps of 12, 11 and 8 are the biggest risers. Not My Circus suffers her second spectacular fall from 2nd, this time to 10th, and Karaev drops back out of the top ten, replaced by Nepatalactone.

I didn't think to look for that: not only Hugo87, but also Italian Gigolo, had the two big-name injury victims, Cancellara and Boonen.

Gent-Wevelgem

A great afternoon's entertainment to watch, but will it have been as breathtaking in its effect on our little game?

Scoring riders
Some fairly popular riders getting good points, but no-one behind the Krisstof/Sagan group bothered finishing (and in those conditions, I wouldn't balme them), so there are very few 5 pointers today.

Points today
Of the 12 teams that selected Paolini, who is already sure of being one of the best percentage returns in the game, six combined him with Vandenbergh: Akuryo, Alykaptan, DJW, GP Blanco, Not My Circus, and Tom-Jelte. However, that pairing was not enough to prevent a second successive top score from Geraint Too Fast, who has Paolini, Vanmarcke, Roelandts and Oss. Honorable mention also to Madrazo, who had 4 of the 8 riders ahead of the peloton, but missed Paolini.

Standings
Long term leader DJW by no means had a bad result today, but not good enough to hold off Geraint, who has had a week even better than that of his namesake. Asdfgh101 was one of the more successful non-Paolini teams, so is able to hold on to his podium position, while Search, GP Blanco and Tom-Jelte gatecrash the top ten, evicting Del1962, LightBing and Nepetalactone. Farther down the table, Bathuba and Comodoro have double digit place rises.

Ronde van Vlaanderen

Scoring riders
The highest finisher to have been selected for our game is Theijs Benoot, a unique, and very wise, pick by Los Brolin. You might or might not believe me when I say that he was a very late removal from my shortlist. However, Brolin selected none of the other top ten riders, Boom, Roelandts and Stybar, who were fairly popular.

Position, Name, Points, teams
5 BENOOT Tiesj 112 1
6 BOOM Lars 100 7
8 ROELANDTS Jürgen 80 10
9 STYBAR Zdenek 70 17
11 OSS Daniel 54 6
12 POZZATO Filippo 46 16
13 DEVOLDER Stijn 42 4
16 BURGHARDT Marcus 32 2
17 DE VREESE Laurens 30 2
18 MARCATO Marco 28 1
21 DEVENYNS Dries 22 11
26 HAUSSLER Heinrich 12 23
27 LEUKEMANS Björn 10 1
30 OFFREDO Yoann 6 7

Between us, we chose 35 of the 5 pointers, including STANNARD Ian, GAUDIN Damien, VANDENBERGH Stijn, VANMARCKE Sep, VANSUMMEREN Johan and PAOLINI Luca, each of whom are on at least a dozen teams.

Points today
Los Brolin had Benoot, but it is Search, the only manager to have selected the other three top ten finishers to have impinged on our collective consciousness, who tops the day's scoring table. Indeed, ten of his twelve team members scored points today.

1 Search 350

Standings
Game leader Geraint Too Fast was yet again one of our top scorers (4th on the day), and with the relative failure of DJW (Stybar was his only decent placing today), his lead now extends to over 200 points. Asdfgh was only slightly outscored by Geraint, and swaps podium places with DJW. Search is the biggest riser inside the top ten (7th to 4th), and Karaev re-enters that select group.
Other teams making significant moves up the table are Commodoro, Murrjt and Oliveira, moving up 8, 7 and 6 places respectively.

I will be away for a few days, so the Scheldeprijs update will not happen until Saturday morning.

Scheldeprijs
Late, as warned, but the sprintcrash special deserves its write-up.

Theuns moves into positive points territory within this game, which only three selected riders had done previously, but the real star pick was the other top ten finisher who is named in this game, as Marini moved himself up to a 525% return in one fell move.

Position/Name/Points/Teams
2 THEUNS Edward 84 8
7 MARINI Nicolas 42 1
11 VALLEE Boris 22 2
13 EISEL Bernhard 15 4
15 DELAGE Mickaël 11 2
20 SKJERPING Kristoffer 6 2
25 MARKUS Barry 5 1
26 STUYVEN Jasper 5 10

Points today:
The combination of Theuns and Marini gives a clear leader on the day, while half the teams, including the collective wisdom squad, failed to score at all.

1 Joelsim 131
2 RoteLaterne 95
3 Vesica 89
3 Leadbelly 89
3 LosBrolin 89
6 Asdfgh101 84
6 NotMyCircus 84
6 Karaev 84
9 GPBlanco 22
9 Comodoro 22
11 Batchuba 20
12 Akuryo 15
12 JosephD 15
12 Armchair 15
15 ArchieBoy 11
15 Scrool07 11
17 Jancouver 6
18 NairoQ 5
18 JustSomeGuy 5
18 PBlazer 5
18 DJSprtsch 5
18 Crevaison 5
23 Everyone else 0



Standings:
Asdfgh101 is one of the managers to have selected Theuns, so Geraint's advantage at the top is closed to a 'mere' 118 points. No-one else in the top 6 scored, but none of them lost positions either. Not My Circus is the biggest mover in the top ten, rising from 9th to 7th, while Tom Jelte fell three places and out of the top ten, replaced by the only team that had three scoring riders in this race, Rote Laterne. Joelsim's top score earned him a 6 place rise, but did not get him into the top half.

Thanks for the update, earlier than announced. :) I'm glad I made the top ten again, I should end the game better than last year.

Paris-Roubaix

Once again, most of the top ten on the day were too expensive, or too unlikely, to have been selected, so only three of them were picked, but that included Stybar, who has been the best scoring rider relevant to our little diversion by a long way. (Kristoff and Degenkolb have scored more points in the races in question, but at three times the price were left unpicked). Vanmarcke, equal in popularity with Stybar, moves up to be the second best scoring rider in the game. Benoot and Rowe move into positive scores today, but were not very popular picks and Boom follows up his 6th in the Ronde to become a fairly worthwhile investment for seven teams.

Pos, Name, Pts,Teams
2 STYBAR Zdenek 170 17
4 BOOM Lars 125 7
8 ROWE Luke 80 3
11 VANMARCKE Sep 54 17
12 DE BACKER Bert 46 1
14 BOZIC Borut 38 2
17 SENECHAL Florian 30 3
19 LEUKEMANS Björn 26 1
21 ROELANDTS Jürgen 22 10
22 MARCATO Marco 20 1
24 DE VREESE Laurens 16 2

Among the 25 five-pointers that we managed to pick, six were on more than a dozen teams: STANNARD Ian, HAUSSLER Heinrich, GAUDIN Damien, VANDENBERGH Stijn, VANSUMMEREN Johan, and POZZATO Filippo.

Scores on the day
4 teams managed to put Stybar and Boom together: GPBlanco, Search, Tom Jelte and Trudgin. Del1962 combined Stybar and Rowe to break up that foursome, and Karaev deserves special mention for a triple comprising Boom, Rowe and Vanmarcke. The rest of the top ten today had put Stybar and Vanmarcke together.

Standings
As we move to the Ardennes for the final 4 races, Geraint opens his lead by a further 54 points (Vanmarcke's haul on the day). Second place on the day has elevated Search to the podium. The day's top scorer, GPBlanco, breaks into the top five, and Tom Jelte enters the top ten with one of the larger jumps of the day, although the highest positional rise is down near the foot of the table, where Kazistuta leaps five places to the dizzy heights of 38th.

The riders likely to feature in the Ardennes are mainly expensive, and so haven't featured large in the selections. Only one team invested really heavily in the remaining 4 races: AG who bought Gilbert is however dead last at present. Are there enough points available through the bargain picks most teams are relying on to bring about much change in the upper reaches?
