Update 4 - Gibbons conquers his Inner Chimp

What an update, ladies and gents. Marty completely blasts away everyone else with a massive 502 points. To put that into context, just some guy, who was first overall in the last update, had collected 354 points up to that point! Definitely, the most impressive performance in the past 2 weeks goes to Ryan Gibbons, who scored 276 points at the Tour of Langkawi. You read that right, 276, that's more than winning Paris-Nice would earn you! He added to the 160 points for the overall win with top-5's on several stages, including one win, and he scored a load of points for leading the race from stage 2 to 8 as well. Only 4 of us selected Gibbons and they are - naturally - the 4 highest scorers in this update. Personally, I thought he was a promising sprinter which is why I picked him, but I never, ever expected this!
But let's focus on marty for a bit. Besides Gibbons' 276 points, he also scored 89 with Richard Carapaz, 65 with Logan Owen and 28 with Jhonatan Narvaez. On top of that, Chris Lawless, Aldemar Reyes and Ondrej Cink scored a combined 44 points as well. So this definitely isn't just a case of one lucky pick! 2nd highest scorer was Kryvo who also scored highly in the previous update, and, let's look at what Kryvo posted after that update:

He added to Gibbons' points with, amongst others, points from Adrien Costa, Cink and - you guessed it - Zemenfes Solomon! 25, to be exact :D
The other two with Gibbons, togo95 and me, both scored points with Maximillian Schachmann and got minor points from a handful of other riders.
"Best of the rest", shawnm4747 did well to match Gibbons score without selecting him. He got most of his points from Carapaz, Owen, Narvaez and Eddie Dunbar. Also very impressive!

Such big scores obviously create big shifts in the ranking. We see both marty and togo95 climb over 30 spots, marty even moves up to 2nd overall, while togo95 remains just outside the top-10 for now, in 11th place. 3rd highest mover was LukasCPH, who moved up 29 spots. Kryvo and shawnm4747 also feature in this list and they both move into the top-10, Kryvo into 3rd, shawnm4747 into 10th. Big jumps are almost always accompanied by big drops, so spare a thought for poor torcia_86 who drops from 6th to 24th.
In the overall ranking we also see some smaller movements, I move into 1st place as just some guy drops to 6th. AupaPyama moves into the top-10 and keep an eye on snccdcno, who has been quietly sneaking up in the rankings and is now just besides the podium. DJW, del1962 and Squire all drop out of the top-10.

Nice to read my name twice. Congrats to the lot that picked Gibbons. He fulfilled what I hoped O'Connor would. I'm also missing Minali ...

Yeah, that is a killer week for this game! Especially this early in the season. To put it in some perspective, that would put you in the top 15 for that week in the main game, where teams have 33 non-neo-pro riders! Nice work, and pardon the belated congrats.

Thanks! and no need for any apologies
It'll be interesting to see how long before some of these guys get their chance again.

Update 5: marty is on a roll!

For the 2nd update in a row, marty delivers a stellar performance. His score isn't as stratospheric this time, but he's still comfortably the highest scorer. Most of his points came from Kristoffer Halvorsen, who impressed by winning the Handzame Classic. Halvorsen, one of the most expensive picks in the game at 336 points, was only picked by one other participant, by Slapshot. Halvorsen still has quite a way to go before he turns into a good pick, but this was definitely a promising performance. Other points for marty came from Edward Planckaert and Andrea Vendrame. Slapshot only had Halvorsen and Planckaert, but that was enough to earn him 2nd place in this update. 3rd place goes to torcia_86, who scored with Planckaert, Vendrame and rare pick Frantisek Sisr.

The title of highest mover also goes to torcia_86, they climbed 12 spots into 12th place. Tych23, the only other person with Sisr, was the 2nd highest mover. Allobroges, one of last year's main contenders, completes the top-3 in this ranking.

Overall, we see that marty pushed me down to 2nd and is now our new leader. We see some other minor movements, snccdcno, just some guy and GP Blanco all drop some spots while MADRAZO and laarsland move up. togo95 in 8th is the only new name in the top-10, shawnm4747 is the unlucky one who drops out.

We see that after 5 updates, which means 10 weeks, no one from 3rd place down has a total score that matches marty's score from the previous update yet. Interesting! :) (and made me do a double-check ;) )

Highest scorers
1 marty 140
2 Slapshot 116
3 torcia_86 104
4 laarsland 83
5 allobroges 80
5 Tych23 80

8 togo95 +3
8 Kazistuta +3
