And Just Some Guy continues his recent CQ game success with unique pick Pöstlberger banging into maglia rosa today and noone with either Ewan, Greipel or Nizzolo on their team. Tipping my hat on your great foresight;)

Stage 1

Sorry I'm late: spreadsheet instability, evening out, Saturday lie-in, repeated spreadsheet instability, ...

Purple points
No normal person uses the word cyclamen as a colour name in English, and those who do use it to refer to a shade of pink similar to that worn by the race leader. I'm no gardener, but a quick Google images view of cyclamen shows that they come in pink, white, red or a pale lilac shade of purple. That shirt is undeniably purple, and the imperial history of the colour should make all sprinters (and Austrian barodeurs) proud to recognise it as such, so that's what I call it.

So the daily points won that are safe and secure, those for being in the top 10 in any stage (70, 40, 25, 15, 10, 7, 5, 3, 2, 1) and the 18 bonus points for wearing the pink jersey (and that can become equivalent to several stage wins in some editions) are logged under this heading. These are the points that a rider keeps even if he fails to finish.

Top sprinters are expensive, and there are not that many stages that they will get their points on, so any sprinter purchase is a risky one in this game, but it sometimes pays off. And then, of course, there is the possibility that sprinters will be robbed of the points that are available to them by an unlikely leadout man rolling away from the front of the race.

PÖSTLBERGER Lukas 88pts 1 teams (Just Some Guy)
EWAN Caleb 40 0 teams
GREIPEL André 25 0 teams
NIZZOLO Giacomo 15 0 teams
MODOLO Sacha 10 4 teams (LightBing, Scrool07, Search, Torcia86)
SBARAGLI Kristian 7 1 teams (Josedin)
STUYVEN Jasper 5 1 teams (Silver Grenade)
GIBBONS Ryan 3 0 teams
BENNETT Sam 2 3 teams (Search, ThePirate81, Vladimir)
BAUHAUS Phil 1 2 teams (Kazistuta, Yellow Knight)


I'm willing to bet that whatever points Just Some Guy thought he would get from the unique pick of Postleberger, it was not from winning an obvious sprint stage and wearing pink. I'll trust that his recent win of the Spring Classics game was less of a fluke.

(That's not a decision to show the top ten: it's the only teams with points in this category)

Pink points
These are all the points that a rider has in all the categories, so that is the accumulated guaranteed "purple" points, plus the points relevant to his current standings in the GC, and the points and mountains categories. CQ rankings are fairly GC heavy compared to other websites: the top ten get 500, 375, 315, 265, 240, 215, 190, 165, 150 and 135, then down through 66 for 20th, 44 for 30th, 26 for 40th to 16 for 50th and 15 for all other finishers. KoM and Points jerseys score the same as a stage. There are no points here for white jersey, nor for the myriad other minor competitions that the Giro maintains.

I won't list the riders' points each day, but I'll note major point gains or losses by rider: yes, points can be lost (for example Benedetti, a unique pick for Tych23 as a late replacement for Pirazzi, has 70 points at the moment for leading the KoM, but has not gone in the break today, so is likely to fall to about 3rd in that ranking, in which case his score tonight will be 45 less than this morning). After GC relevant stages, esp in the first week or two, there will be very large changes here, but this is the real competition.

(The scores might look impressive, but even if your riders filled places 187 to 195 yesterday you would have 135 points)

Stage 2

Purple points

The only expensive sprinter who was picked much was Gaviria, but his teams will be expecting more pf a return from him than he seems to be on course for thus far. The lower budget sprinters will be outsiders to get any points at all, but on days like today, they can do it.

Sprinters already dominate the GC, and riders high in GC are unlikely to be left far behind on a flat course, so I suspect that there will be fewer dramatic changes tomorrow. On Tuesday, however...

Stage 3 Boring flat stages can get interesting in the end

This is why 8 teams thought that Gaviria might be worth a price higher than some GC contenders. If he can stay in pink fro three more weeks, they will definitely be right, but given that that won't happen, he will be expected to do more on future stages.

Unless there is an eruption of Etna, causing a cancellation or curtailment, we can confidently predict an eruption in this table on Tuesday.

Nice of them to have a day off on the Monday following a first Sunday: I might be able to get some or all editions of the Emerging Riders games update done on the "rest day".

If you are stuck for how to use your cycling-watching time on rest day, you can peruse the spreadsheet here.

So today is when the game begins to take shape.

In most editions of the GT games, the race winner is an absolute must have if he gets the leaders jersey early. In this edition, price differences are such that by eschewing the favourite to win, it was possible to get three or four (because Landa is so cheap) podium contenders.

I was pleased to see that one team did go for the Quintana/Landa/makeweights option (thanks Shalgo). If, as some expect, Quintana wins by a big margin today, he is headed for not only 500 pts for winning GC, but also a massive 306 accumulated pink jersey wearer points (equivalent to somewhere between 3rd and 4th in GC). Then Landa's performance becomes key: his ubiquity means he takes the tactical role of the teammate of a KoM jersey contender's teammate takeing points at a pass so that no-one else can get them. If Quintana were to take an unsurmountable grip on GC today (I don't particularly expect it myself, but some do), and Landa ends up 2nd on GC, then it will require 3rd, 4th and 5th from another Landa owning team to cancel that out. And that leaves the non-Shalgo team only 5 other riders, as opposed to Shalgo's 7, to get other points. If Landa is below 3rd in final GC, then 2nd, 3rd and 10th would be enough to cancel out Quintana, but that is still a set of results most of us won't get, or even get near to.

Now I put it like that, perhaps I should have gone for Quintana after all.

Three non-finishers and a disqualification today, but none of them were selected for the game.

Gains and losses:
The teams that have a lot of sprinters, and especially Gaviria, take a big hit, otherwise it has been a day to rake in the points.

Standings
Yesterday's standings are reduced to irrelevance: of that top ten, only 2 are in the top ten today(yesterday's leader is now 5th, today's was 10th), and 4 are in the bottom ten. 23 teams have a double digit move (Jakob's 30 place rise being the best), and only the two teams at the bottom are in the same places as when they left Sardinia.

Stage 5 Race to the ferry

I haven't watched yet: might get a chance to later but I get the impression I haven't missed anything.

Purple points
Mainly lower profile sprinters in the top ten, who are therefore more affordable and more frequently chosen. And Gaviria, who is getting close to justifying the big outlay that some have spent on him. He already has enough guaranteed points to be better than 8th in GC (if that rider were to get no more than 7 stage points).

GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando 70pts 8 teams
MARECZKO Jakub 40 0 team
BENNETT Sam 25 3 teams
JUNGELS Bob 18 3 teams
GREIPEL André 15 0 team

No echelons, meaningful chase of the break or driving finish from the puncheurs; likewise, no real action in the table, with Mellow Velo up 2 places as the most relevant change, one new member of the top ten sneaking in at number ten (ChrisDK), and the biggest rise being 7 places for Silver Grenade.

Stage 7 Marshall dodging and a one lap crit

Purple points

Gaviria is now equivalent to 6th in final GC through guaranteed points alone: there will be more expensive GC picks who don't do that...
Meanwhile, Jungels' accumulated leader bonuses are now worth more than a stage win.

Stage 8 One hairpin too many for Conti

Purple points

Torcia86 will have been upset about the fate of his unique pick in the last km, and Jungels' retention of pink, which twice seemed to be in doubt, prevented my unique pick from being top scorer today.

Standings
Forget everything prior to today.
Of yesterday's top 5, only one is now in the top 30; one of yesterday's top ten is still top ten (Jakob, now 4th). Today's top three were 28th, 24th and 27th yesterday. 3 teams rise by 30+ places (Laarsland 36, Flo 35, Kabete 32) and another 7 by 20+: 9 teams fell by more than 20 places, with Mellow Velo surely breaking all records, tumbling 41 places in a 46 strong field.

Stage 10 ITT

Did only one entrant think Dumoulin might be in with a chance, or was it that only one thought he was half as good again as a prospect than Nibali or Pinot? Yellow Knight's trust brings some dividends. Mollema meanwhile, almost exactly the same price as Pinot, got the nod over the Frenchman from absolutely no-one, which is beginning to look collectively remiss of us.

In contrast to many previous games, most teams go into week 2 with their full complement of 9, and no team has lost more than one rider. Pelucci was, I assume, a cheap sprinter in the hope of some fluke top tens rather than a major tactical bulwark for his 7 teams: Kelderman will have been more of a loss to Vladimir.



Standings

No change among that very tight top 4, except that it is even tighter, and immediately below them Yellow Knight, who was second last before they started the Blockhaus stage, but up 29 places today (putting Kazistuta's 25 place rise in the shade) and with the prospect of at least a few days' worth of 18 point bonuses to follow. The other upward movement in the top ten is Leadbelly going from 10th to 6th.

Stage 11 Short and Bumpy

Purple points

Half our teams thought that Omar would be the man for the Blue jersey, and maybe for a few stage placings, but not for sprinting like that.

Leadbelly becomes the first non-Gavirian to break into that top 8 for a while.


Pink points
Other than the stage points, the rises of Amador, Kangert and Cataldo have an opposite effect of falls for other riders who might no longer be thought of as contenders. Van Garderen's fall is achieved independently of the efforts of the breakaway.

Standings

The two big scorers on the day, Kabete and GPBlanco, leap from 7th and 12th respectively to first and second places, but their tenure is only as safe as the new elevated positions of Amador and Kangert. Yellow Knight, the only team with Dumoulin, also has Kangert, and also reaches the podium. There are even bigger rises further down the table, Rote Laterne being the biggest climber (17 places).
