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:
Kryvo wrote:And today is time for "Zemenfes Solomon". Go Go Go!

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

Update 6

I don't have much inspiration for this update so don't expect anything besides the facts :p
Many of the high scorers in this update had the Simone Consonni - David Gaudu combo: Consonni scored 55 points, Gaudu scored 45 points. LukasCPH had those 2 but also scored major points with Justin Jules (50), Eddie Dunbar (20) and unique pick Elmar Reinders (15). He is the highest scorer this update and also one of the highest movers, climbing to 8th place.
2nd highest scorer del1962 also scored with Gaudu, Consonni and Dunbar and added points from unique pick Fabian Lienhard, amongst others. He is also among the highest movers, moving up 6 spots.
3rd highest scorer CraZyCaLL had Gaudu, Consonni and Neilson Powless score big points.
Highest mover this update, climbing 7 spots, was LosBrolin who scored with (again) Consonni and Gaudu, but also with Ivan Garcia Cortina and Nans Peters. LukasCPH and del1962 share the 2nd place in this ranking with Pentacycle, who doesn't have Consonni but he got a big chunk of his points from Gaudu and scored minor points with several others.

Overall, we see that MADRAZO pushes Kryvo from the podium. Marty continues in 1st place. LukasCPH and shawnm4747 enter the top-10 while GP Blanco and AupaPyama drop out.

Highest scorers
1 LukasCPH 202
2 del1962 166
3 CraZyCaLL 163
4 skidmark 158
5 Hakkie2 152
6 shawnm4747 150
7 Wallenquist 149
8 al_pacino 142
9 LosBrolin 140
10 togo95 132

Highest movers

2 Pentacycle +6
5 skidmark +5
6 CraZyCaLL +4
6 Wallenquist +4
6 Hakkie2 +4
6 Ludwigzgz +4
6 Leadbelly +4

Let me pat myself on the back here.

For the last spot on my team, I needed a guy who cost 6 points to bring the team value to 1000. Among the available 6-pointers, there was this kiwi who I'd never heard of who got two 2nd places in the New Zealand Cycle Classic last year. Very well, I thought, at least there is some faint hope that this guy could feature in some races somewhere, which was more than what could be said about the Indonesian domestiques and Mongolian neo-pros who made up most of the other 6-pointers.

Alex Frame just got his fifth (!) win of the season today :cool:

Update 7: Lecroq's a hit.

We have a tie atop the rankings this update between CraZyCaLL and AupaPyama with Tych23 rounding off the podium. The top two are the only ones to have selected Jeremy Lecroq and that paid dividends as they got just about half of their points from his three top ten placings over the last fortnight (RvV Beloften, GP de Denain and ZLM - Roompot Tour). CraZyCaLL backed that up due to an impressive performance from Enric Mas in Pais Vasco as well as a top ten in Tour du Finistere from David Gaudu whilst AupaPyama got most of their other points from Rudy Barbier, in particular his sixth in Scheldeprijs.

This weeks highest mover is the previously mentioned Tych23 they had a number of contributing riders, most notably Mas, Nick Schultz and Jhonatan Narvaez, Roubaix had a couple of those plus Christopher Lawless, Trudgin got a chunk of her points thanks to rare pick Fausto Masnada's top ten in Giro dell'Appennino.

No change in the order of the top three although LaFlorecita has slightly closed the gap on marty. Both of the highest scorers also jump into the top ten along with GP Blanco, the three to drop out are LukasCPH, togo95 and yours truly.

Worth noting that the CQ download was posted with only the top three of Giro Belvedere di Villa di Cordignano counted so if you notice some points that you were expecting not included that is why and they will be taken care of in the next update!

Update 8: Gaudu shines brightly

This update's most notable performance has to be David Gaudu's 9th place at the Flèche Wallonne, which scored him over 50 points. The result in and of itself is great, but what was even more impressive was the way he rode, attacking on Huy while others chose to wait and ride into the final 200 meters with Valverde. He was a rather expensive pick, but that didn't deter many from picking him, he is one of the most popular picks.
Highest scorer in this update was yours truly :) with points from amongst others rather popular picks Gaudu, Maximilian Schachmann (38 points) and Riccardo Minali (15 points), but most importantly also 40 points from Lennard Hofstede.
2nd highest scorer just some guy also scored with Gaudu, Schachmann and Minali as well as Neilson Powless (20 points) and most notably 27 points from unique pick Lucas Hamilton. Hamilton was 40 points and has already quadrupled his score :eek:
3rd highest scorer CraZyCaLL scored with the above-mentioned Gaudu, Schachmann, Powless and Minali and also got minor points from Guerreiro and Consonni.

Joint highest mover LosBrolin, who moved up 8 spots, got most of his points from Gaudu, Hofstede and Minali and got minor points from half a dozen others. The other highest mover, Pentacycle, scored with, besides some of the usual suspects, with unique pick Riabushenko (19 points) and rare pick Fabio Jakobsen, who seems like a great prospect. I will definitely keep an eye on him for future editions of this game ;)
Tych23, who moved up 7 spots, didn't pick Gaudu, interestingly enough. Instead, he scored big with rare pick Hofstede and he got a whopping 50 points from unique pick Mark Christian!

Overall, we see that I move into 1st place, as marty's team had an underwhelming two weeks. Just some guy moves up three spots onto the podium, while CraZyCaLL moves up three spots into 4th. LukasCPH enters the top-10, AupaPyama drops down to 11th.

Update 9: Colombian domination

I was quite surprised when I checked out the scores for this update, somehow several Colombians scored major points and this completely went past me :p This all happened in the Vuelta a Madrid. Hakkie2 is the highest scorer, with big points from Carapaz (50), Reyes (46) and uncommon pick Aguirre (60). He also scored 65 points with Vendrame. It's a pretty impressive total score and with those points, he is also the (joint) highest mover, moving up 13 positions, into 5th overall!

Marty, who was in 2nd place before this update, is the 2nd highest scorer, with points from Vendrame, Reyes and Carapaz as well, and also 44 points from José Manuel Diaz - who? :D , nice pick, 0-pointer, only 1 other player found him as well, just some guy ;) Thanks to marty's good week, he moves into 1st place overall again :)

3rd highest scorer is fauniera, he scored with Vendrame, Aguirre and Carapaz and is also among the highest movers.

Joint highest mover is last year's #2, allobroges, who had an underwhelming start this year after leading the rankings for most of last year. He scored with Vendrame, Reyes and also with almost-unique pick Fabio Jakobsen (30 points). Will this be the start of his comeback?

3rd highest mover is Armchair Cyclist, climbing 8 positions, main scorers for him were Vendrame and Carapaz as well.

Overall, as I already mentioned, marty moves into first place again, while Hakkie2 enters the top-10 as well as last year's winner Wallenquist and snccdcno, the unfortunate three that dropped out are GP Blanco, MADRAZO and Kryvo.

1 Hakkie2 251
2 marty 236
3 fauniera 201
