Sorry: totally forgot that I hadn't yet done this...

Stage 12 Bilbao

Green points
Perhaps I had subconsciously told myself how insignificant the day was: no-one in the top nine finishers were chosen.

KEUKELEIRE Jens 70pts 0 team
BOUET Maxime 40 0 team
FELLINE Fabio 25 0 team
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander 18 2 teams
SBARAGLI Kristian 15 0 team
SANCHEZ GIL Luis Leon 10 0 team
BILBAO LOPEZ DE ARMENTIA Pello 7 0 team
BAKELANTS Jan 5 0 team
VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro 3 0 team
DILLIER Silvan 2 0 team
FRANK Mathias 1 14 team

Neither of the Quintana teams have Frank, so 18 points for Quintata teams, 1 for Frankish selections.

Red points
Equally uneventful...

DJW and Postmanhat are +7 on the day, Bicycle Boy is -22, everyone else in between with fairly trivial scores.

Two thirds of us don't change position at all, the only changes in the top ten are Geraint TooFast and Mellow Velo overtaking Los Brolin and Kazistuta respectively.

Stage 13 Stalemate in the Basque Country

Green points
None of the top ten today were selected (surely a first in our GC games), so the only red points, rather contradictorily, are the 18 red jersey points for Quintana. So having earned 36 points on this basis, against a maximum of 1 point for any other team, in the last two days, NairoQ and Vladimir are now up to 2nd and 10th respectiveky in this category.

Red points
No GC changes above 45th place, nor in points classification above 8th, so the main changes (including more than enough losses to cancel out Quintana's red jersey bonus) arise from being overtaken by Lagutin in the Kom classification), so there are only losses today.

Today makes yesterday look like a major reshuffle. No-one moves by more than one place, and more than three quarters of us don't even do that, and the most significant change is the 19th and 20th placed teams swapping positions.

Red points

Not really the headline of the day, but the slump in Konig's GC rank (with the points benefit to all those who passed him) is probably the biggest effect of the dayas far as the game is concerned. Of course, it might also puncture any remaining hope on the part of Amis Velo, or fear from NairoQ and Vladimir.

Standings

Vladimir becomes the leader, mainly by virtue of not having Konig, in contrast to the other Quintana team (NairoQ, now 2nd) , and Hakkie rises from 10th to the third podium spot, with Amis Velo falling to 5th. Only 8 teams did not change position, and while Luxembourg Finest matched Hakkie's 7 point rise, there were three teams who suffer the ignominy of falling 10 (Hayabusa, Bbass) or even 14 (18-Valve) places.

Had they applied the time limit and put several dozen riders out of the race, it would have lowered all the scores a bit, and the most significant immediate change would have seen Kazistuta up to 6th.

As you have probably gathered by now, this was not a day to change much. Bbass and LightBing each move up 3, 14 teams each move up one place and a similar number take a concommitant drop. The highest place to change is Mellow Velo's annexation of 6th place.

So mirroring the Quintana-Froome-Contador putative podium, we have 2 Quintana teams, followed by the team with Froome as a unique pick, and then dozens of Contador-led teams.

Vladimir:
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander 915
TALANSKY Andrew 248
SCARPONI Michele 203
ELISSONDE Kenny 194
GESINK Robert 179
CATTANEO Mattia 30
ROLLAND Pierre 23
SICARD Romain 15
(ANTON HERNANDEZ Igor 5)

NairoQ 2nd @ 138 pts
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander 915
YATES Simon 315
GESINK Robert 179
KÖNIG Leopold 126
PERAUD Jean-Christophe 104
DOMBROWSKI Joseph Lloyd 15
VANOTTI Alessandro 15
JAUREGUI Quentin 15
(LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel 0)

Amis Velo 3rd @ 184 pts

FROOME Chris 597
YATES Simon 315
TALANSKY Andrew 248
SCARPONI Michele 203
KÖNIG Leopold 126
FRANK Mathias 101
RESTREPO VALENCIA Jhonatan 21
DOMBROWSKI Joseph Lloyd 15
(VANBILSEN Kenneth 2)

Even with the early demise of Lopez, the advantage had seemed to be with Nairo Q until Konig got onto the megabus on Sunday. Konig having lost in the region of 200 points that day undermined what otherwise would have been a very tight group of three at the top of the race.

Watching halfway through the stage, it looks like Elissonde will lose some of Vladimir's lead, and might be that another strong stage from Gesink might yet bring NairoQ close to the top if the real Nairo stays in red, but barring a key DNF, Vladimir seems to have the better of it among the two Quintana teams.
Amis Velo might still have designs on 2nd, even if Froome does not get the lead, with Frank in the break if Gesink does not stay up there. Of course, if Froome manages to overhaul those 81 seconds, the title is surely Amis Velo's.

Minessa has a noteworthy 145 point margin over any of the other 35 Contador teams, with a well balanced team including decent returns from Yates, Scarponi, Meersman, and Gesink, honourable back up from Hermans and Peraud, and Schartzmann being one of the few riders to be in profit in this race. It would however require something either extraordinary or tragic for him, or any of the Albertistas, to make the podium.

Red points
The change in leadership of the points classification made no difference, and in the KoM in made very little, but Contador's fall from the podium takes a toll on 3/4 of teams, and a few suffer even more from the fates of Sanchez and Scarponi. Where many teams lost points, a few gained by filling those lost places.

Almost final standings

The gap between the top two is greatly reduced, but it is hard to see sprinters capable of closing the 31 pt gap in NairoQ's team. Murrjt is both the highest placed to have changed position, and the biggest (5 place) riser of the day. DJW is also an entry to the top ten. Although Chaves has gained 3rd place, five of the Contador teams remain above the highest Chaves team (DJW).

Etixx, Orica and Lotto Soudal all look likely to finish with all 9 of their starters, while FdJ will bring (a maximum of) 5 riders to the finish line.

Regardless of who should have been eliminated a week ago, and without denying that we have seen some DNFs on final day parades in recent GTs, here's the analysis of how DNFs might have impinged on our teams.

39 riders have dropped out so far, 25 of them on at least one of our teams:
LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel 28 teams 623 pt cost
KRUIJSWIJK Steven 21 660 1 pt earned
JANSE VAN RENSBURG Jacques 6 22 7
HAAS Nathan 5 143 10
HUZARSKI Bartosz 5 52 5
SANCHEZ GONZALEZ Samuel 5 517 7
ANTON HERNANDEZ Igor 4 174 5
KISERLOVSKI Robert 4 93
BARGUIL Warren 3 595
BATTAGLIN Enrico 3 136 7
REYNES MIMO Vicente 3 58
TAARAMÄE Rein 3 374
VANBILSEN Kenneth 3 36 2
CLARKE Simon 2 193 1
MALACARNE Davide 2 53
VAN GARDEREN Tejay 2 571 3
BEVIN Patrick 1 203
BONIFAZIO Niccolo 1 454 5
FISCHER Murilo Antonio 1 45
GONÇALVES Jose Isidro Maciel 1 524 1
HERKLOTZ Silvio 1 60
HUREL Tony 1 78
REZA Kévin 1 134 35
GILBERT Philippe 1 993 18
ROJAS GIL Jose Joaquin 1 444 10

Number of withdrawn riders in each team:
5: Armchair_Cyclist, Crevaison, Trudgin
4: Bbass, Joelsim, Josedin, LuxembourgFinest
3: BicycleBoy, ChrisDK, Comodoro, Hakkie2, Hugo87, JustSomeGuy, Leadbelly, Murali, Rote_Laterne, Search, SemirS
2: 18Valve, BigMac, Carlo_Algatrensig, GeraintTooFast, GPBlanco, Hayabusa, Kazistuta, LightBing, LosBrolin, Postmanhat, Shalgo, Slapshot, USPostal, Vredeling, Yellow_Knight

Stage 21 Final precession, final scores

Green points

I am strongly minded to exclude the leader jersey points from this classification in future editions, as they unduly slant this towards those likely to be top of the main competition. And just as I was thinking that, this happens:

CORT NIELSEN Magnus 70 3 teams
BENNATI Daniele 40 0 team
MEERSMAN Gianni 25 18 teams
SBARAGLI Kristian 15 0 teams
ARNDT Nikias 10 2 teams
MANZIN Lorrenzo 7 1 team
HARDY Romain 5 0 team
RESTREPO VALENCIA Jhonatan 3 7 teams
SELIG Rüdiger 2 1 team
PUCCIO Salvatore 1 0 team


1= Murrjt, Vredeling 95 (Nielsen and Meersman)
3 Slapshot 70 (Nielsen)
4 Laarsland 35 (Meersman, Arndt)
5 Comodoro 32 (Meersman, Manzin)
6 JosephD 28 (Meersman, Restrepo)
7 Other Meersman teams 25
20 Murali 10
21 LightBing 5
22= AmisVelo, Bbass, Hakkie2 , Joelsim, Shalgo 3
27 The rest 0


Standings Final, but still the minor competition
At the very end, and on the stage on which there are no red jersey points, the teams whose scores are thus bolstered yield to Murrjt.
1 Murrjt 742
2 NairoQ 704
3 Vladimir 640
4 Vredeling 549
5 Mellow_Velo 544
6 Minessa 528
7 Kazistuta 526
8 18Valve 522
9 AmisVelo 505
10 Del1962 480
11 BicycleBoy 456
12 Capt_Cavman 450
13 ChrisDK 443
14 Laarsland 404
15 LosBrolin 398
16 Hugo87 397
17 Josedin 387
18 Hakkie2 384
19 Rote_Laterne 375
20 Bbass 373
21 SemirS 371
22 JustSomeGuy 357
23 Leadbelly 353
24 Comodoro 349
24 DJW 349
26 ArchieBoy 339
27 Carlo_Algatrensig 333
28 Search 316
29 JosephD 312
30 Slapshot 308
31 GeraintTooFast 243
32 BigMac 220
33 Murali 211
34 Crevaison 187
35 Hayabusa 184
36 Shalgo 176
37 Postmanhat 169
38 LightBing 162
39 Yellow_Knight 154
40 BluesInTheBottle 153
41 Joelsim 143
42 Armchair_Cyclist 140
43 USPostal 62
44 Trudgin 59
45 LuxembourgFinest 56
46 GPBlanco 47
Collective_Wisdom 428

The 12 days of bonus points were worth the equivalent of a little more than 3 stage wins for the Quintana teams. Without these points, this would have looked like this:
1 Murrjt 742
2 Vredeling 549
3 Minessa 528
4 Mellow_Velo 526
4 Kazistuta 526
6 18Valve 522
7 AmisVelo 505
8 NairoQ 488
9 Del1962 480
10 Capt_Cavman 450
11 ChrisDK 425
12 Vladimir 424
13 Laarsland 404
14 LosBrolin 398
15 Hugo87 397
16 BicycleBoy 384
17 Josedin 369
18 Hakkie2 366
19 Rote_Laterne 375
20 Bbass 373

Red points
I'm no fan of these last day parades, and the underwhelming effect on the game does nothing to make me more enthusiastic:

CORT NIELSEN Magnus 70pts 3 teams
MEERSMAN Gianni 25 18
ARNDT Nikias 10 2

Final Standings
Murrjt gets into the top five at the last, and Capt Cavman likeways sneaks into the top ten, while Vredeling has a remarkable 6 place rise on a day of so little change.

But the outcome is as it has looked likely to be for a week:
1 Vladimir 1763
2 NairoQ 1730
3 AmisVelo 1581
4 Minessa 1434
5 Murrjt 1388

19 teams took part in my 4 short games (Spring Classics and the three GTs), and so get free entry into the
Four Seasons Championship

Greg Van Avermaet-like, Vladimir started the year winning early (top of the Classics game), and was winning again at the end (top in this Vuelta game): no surprises about who won the annual overall combination then.

Position Classics + Giro + Tour + Vuelta = Total

1 Vladimir 2378 + 701 + 909 + 1763 = 5751
2 GeraintTooFast 1807 + 1058 + 1608 + 1186 = 5659
3 Del1962 1494 + 989 + 1568 + 1216 = 5267
4 Search 1777 + 1146 + 1002 + 1224 = 5149
5 AmisVelo 1528 + 1160 + 875 + 1581 = 5144
6 Kazistuta 2043 + 840 + 904 + 1301 = 5088
7 DJW 1868 + 941 + 950 + 1253 = 5012
8 Rote_Laterne 2007 + 905 + 929 + 1044 = 4885
9 Armchair_Cyclist 1275 + 962 + 1596 + 972 = 4805
10 Murrjt 2052 + 385 + 769 + 1388 = 4594
11 Comodoro 1177 + 1256 + 1120 + 714 = 4267
12 Mellow_Velo 1633 + 576 + 577 + 1374 = 4160
13 Leadbelly 1873 + 154 + 951 + 1109 = 4087
14 Josedin 1926 + 310 + 711 + 1121 = 4068
15 LosBrolin 1333 + 660 + 741 + 1313 = 4047
16 GPBlanco 1619 + 1013 + 470 + 735 = 3837
17 JustSomeGuy 1086 + 758 + 958 + 947 = 3749
18 Bbass 1437 + 577 + 522 + 778 = 3314
19 Trudgin 930 + 380 + 681 + 569 = 2560

Collective_Wisdom 1974 + 302 + 777 + 1342 = 4395

Thanks for the updates throughout the year Armchair! I am naturally very happy to have won both the Vuelta and the overall :D Of course these games are partly down to luck, but winning a CQ game with the bottom ranked team in the popularity ranking must be extremly seldom and I feel this gives the victory the extra icing on the cake!? :D :surprised:

And if you want to do any further analysis, or think you can work out a better best possible team, or simply to see where your selection went wrong,the spreadsheet that did all the work is here

Congratulation to double winner vladimir, big thank you to Armchair_cyclist and all participants.
I'm happy with S. Yates and particularly the rare pick Elissonde.
