Stage 13 Sprint after a sprint, but the last of them

Purple points
Assuming Gaviria gets into Milan, he will probably score more game points than whoever comes 2nd on GC, and will probably have been much cheaper than whoever that is. Well done to the teams that picked him.

The Thomas teams had probably only retained a small hope of an acceptable return: today that lingering shred was eliminated. I suppose itmeans that today at least had some GC relevance.

That is beginning to look like a very tidy lead, built on Gaviriia,Nibali, GPM specialist Fraile, and what many will consider to be two top ten overachievers in Amador and Kangert. Can they, and GPBlanco, hang on? Vladimir out-rises the Gavirians, taking a nine place leap courtesy of Bennett.

Sorry: went out early, got back late, slept in late.

Stage 14 Oropa: in search of sanctuary from attacks

Purple points


A possible 126 pink jersey points still to come, and another TT for which he will be a favourite: Dumoulin will be a big part of this classification as well as of the main part of the game.

Popular riders abound in the top 10 today, along with the pair who were not to be ignored, but were too expensive to be very popular.

Pink points

Zakarin tops up his 2nd place points with a GC jump from 10th to 5th, but Dumoulin goes from 11th to first on the KoM classification, and so gets 70 more projected points. In effect, He has maximised his projected category points, which ban only fall, and can only gain through daily bonuses.

Mollema was the only GC high placing contender who went unpicked: yesterday's 100 point drop vindicates us collectively.

Standings

And it is back to being very close: 8 teams within 107 points. Kangert's gain was not enough to make up for the losses of Amador for GPBlanco, while Crevaison, with all five of the non-Dumoulin riders whose score increased by 30 or more, comes from 7th to overtake him. Fauniera, Trudgin and Kabete (2nd, 3rd and 4th previously) slip backwards for lack of Zakarin/Dumoulin, allowing Laarsland, Yellow Knight and Flo to move up. Leadbelly makes a top ten appearance, and Los Brolin is the 13 place high riser of the day.

Those 10 Kangert included those who were the top 5 this morning, and 8th place. Those 6 teams now occupy 6th to 11th places, and we have a totally new top five. That means that the only Dumoulin team has taken a hit that 5 more pink jersey bonuses can only go halfway to making up for.

The only team in the red is Dumoulin's Yellow Knight, but through loss of KoM classification standing points (and lack of Landa) rather than losing the race lead.

Standings
Only 2 teams are still in the same position as before the rest day: one of them is mid-table, but the other is our leader, Fauniera. Plenty of change behind him, and a much narrower lead. The closest challengers, GPBlanco and Crevaison, are up from 7th and 6th respectivey, and behind them AG on the back of a best-of-the-day 14 place rise. Hakkie, SemirS, Amis Velo, GodChild and Squire are also entries to the top ten. Yellow Knight's fall is as much down to being Landa-less as Dumoulin's gastric discomfort, but while Quintana is well placed to take advantage, the only Quintana team, Shalgo, would require another 200 pts beyond the 125 additional points for 1st rather than 2nd, and the 72 remaining pink jersey bonus points, to be competitive.

Stage 17 Cannondale getting into the winning habit

There are some who seemed to think that Polanc was heading for a much bigger point increase at some stage today...

ROLLAND Pierre 82 9 teams

MONFORT Maxime 22 1 team
DUMOULIN Tom 16 1 team

Standings

The gap opens again at the top, as the top two have Rolland. Two other teams from the top ten have him: Godchild, up from 9th to reach the virtual podium, and Squire, from 10th to 5th. Despite the loss of Bauhaus, the combination of Dumoulin and Rolland make Yellow Knight the top riser (11 places) of the day.

Compared my team and Fauniera's. We have quite some riders in common, Gaviria, Landa, Rolland and Fraile. I have Nibali as my main GC guy and he has Pinot plus Pozzovivo. Which means he has the advantage of two GC men.

Stage 18 Princess stage (like a queen, but shorter)

Purple points

Sometimes a rider picked as a GC contender turns out to be a sstage hunter, to justify at least some of his cost.

Since Gaviria stopped gaining points, his teams have retained the top 6 spots in this ranking, but 2 of them, those with less mountain support, have dropped to 10th and 12th.


Pink points
Gaps near the top close again without change of positions, apart from the most important position swap there is. But only one team able to gain from that, and one that suffers. Kruijswijk's fall is more significant in our game than Dumoulin's.

Standings

It was not a good day for the leader on the road, but it was in this game. If it looked uncertain that there was a way to shake Dumoulin yesterday, it looks more so the case for Fauniera here.
Unless Nibali repeats his stage 20 of last year...

Of the top 4 plus one other that I posted team details of as top contenders on Monday, Fauniera remains top, but the others have dropped to 8th, 12, 22nd and 42nd.

So which teams and riders now pose a threat to the team that has been top since Kangert's argument with road furniture affected the 5 teams that had been above him at the start of stage 15.

The lead is beyond that which is likely to be made up simply by stage finish points, but after significant top 10 GC variation, the gaps could be tiny.

Landa is ubiquitous, and therefore irrelevant to the battle, and Gaviria will surely not add to his haul.. Fauniera is really only vulnerable if Nibali moves up and Pinot does not, but a repeat today of stage 19 for Dumoulin, or Time Trial overhauling of Quintana, means that that is far from impossible.

If Nibali and Pinot both get improvements in standing ( as in the above two scenarios, but more extreme) then Crevaison will come into play, especially if one of those expensive, one team riders who are currently first and second fall far enough to Zakarin to overtake them and make the podium.

If Nibali moves up, but Pinot stays off the podium, then we are probably looking at Zakarin trying to get 28 seconds from Pinot (on the last 14km today or the time trial) as the battle between Squire and those on the virtual podium as it stands.

I wrote all that without having read of Kruijswijk's DNS today.

That really removes GodChild and Squire from the reckoning: so Pinot is key for Fauniera and Crevaison, Nibali for GPBlanco and Crevaison, and Zakarin for Crevaison. If there is success for Nibali, then stage points still hold the balance.

What was that last sentence in my previous post?

So Kruijswijk loses the 135 projected points for 10th place, to the detriment of 25 teams, and riders below him each move up a bit granting some compensation, mainly to the benefit of Formolo teams.

New top ten, sans Kruijswijk:
1 Fauniera 1740 (holds position)
2 GPBlanco 1642 (holds position)
3 Crevaison 1570 ( up from 5th)
4= Hakkie2 1510 (up from 7th)
4= Jakob747 1510 (up from 8)
6 AG 1484 (was 9th)
7 GodChild 1478 (was 3rd)
8 SafeBet 1472 (was 11th)
9 Squire 1468 (was 4th)
10 Del1962 1436 (was 14th)

Standings with one stage, and one big shake-up, to come

Crevaison leaps from 5th to second, and is the only real challenger, I would suggest, to Fauniera, though I reckon Pinot's win today will have been enough to keep Fauniera safe. Del 1962, Hugo87, Safebet and Leadbelly are new entries to the top ten as the Kruijswijk teams tumble. Scrool07 has the biggest (16 place) rise, and Yellow Knight will gain that honour tomorrow.

The top two will both lose points tomorrow (as Dumoulin overtakes them), and Crevaison has 2 riders vulnerable to being overtaken by Dumoulin. Also in Fauniera's favour is that Pinot overhauling Nibali is neutral to Crevaison (who has both), but advantageous to Fauniera.
But there is a way in for Crevaison, if we were to end up with a Dumoulin-Nibali-Zakarin podium. I'm also assuming that Pozzovivo can hang on to his minute and a half over Mollema, but if that does not happen, that would be a 25 point swing to Crevaison which might bring it into stage points range to decide.

If you want to examine other permutations, here's the spreadsheet.

Stage 21 Pink points

More losses than gains to finish off, but your rivals might have lost points too.

DUMOULIN Tom 281 1 team
JUNGELS Bob 18 3 teams
KIRYIENKA Vasil 15 1 team
...
YATES Adam -15 9 teams
PINOT Thibaut -50 13 teams
NIBALI Vincenzo -60 26 teams
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander -125 1 team


As predicted (and eminently predictable), Yellow Knight crushes the daily competition.

Final positions

In the end, Fauniera only had one rider overtaken by Dumoulin and Crevaison had two, and so the winning margin more than doubled on the last day. AG, Hakkie2 and Leadbelly have some promotion within the top ten, and Squire replaces Hugo87 to get into the final top 10. Inevitably, Yellow Knight is the Dumoulin-powered top riser of the day, but for the only team with the race winner to end up 35th of 46 (and that with the advantage of 162 pink jersey wearer bonus points), and the only team with the rider 2nd in GC to be only 2 places better off, shows that this was an unusual edition of the game.

Congratulations to Fauniera and rest of the podium, and thanks to all for joining in.

1 place off top 1/3 of the field: better than my usual.

Yeah. :)

I was a bit worried as Crevaison came closer and closer at the end, but it was enough. Congrats to the other podium finishers.

Thanks for the game, Armchair cyclist!

Congrats to the people who did so well.
It was my first shot at the fantasy league game and thoroughly enjoyed throughout the 24 days.(Maybe not when I was at the bottom :) )
Thanks to Armchair Cyclist for conducting this game
