Chaves, Lopez, Formolo, Brambilla...well...ouch

I also have all of them, along with other such underperforming riders as Pantano, Gesink, Reichenbach, and Sbaragli. This Giro is pretty much a three-week display of the failure of my game strategy this year. At least Formolo looks to be riding well, despite his loss of time on Etna.

And I have Carapaz and Betancur to compensate a bit.



Add me to the list of a nice failure when it comes to riders for the Giro.

Brambilla, Betancur (who would have expected), apparently Schachmann, and Formolo

A bit hard on Schachmann, it's his first GT and he's already shown this year his talent for the future.

Thanks for the update as well! Although I've fallen downhill this year and am not expecting much from the Giro.


Actually no not hard on him, hence the reason I put apparently because he's one of my top preferming GC riders. Who knew that was going to be the case. I'm more surprised he's doing that well. I didn't know he was riding for GC.


Oh sorry, makes sense. I'm very happy to see him go this well after picking him last year too. Hopefully he can do a good ride in the ITT too.

So on my first try for the team I had Bernal and Benoot in the first few spots. Decided against Bernal as I feared he would't get a chance at Sky to lead races. Decided against Benoot as he stagnated points-wise the last few years.
Picked Moscon and Theuns instead.
On the plus side: my unique pick Aranburu is in profit after Norway, Leknesund also scored his first points. Oomen is pretty good in the Giro and McNulty already was a very good pick.

Sorry guys, just for no apparent reason completely forgot I had to do the update yesterday :o

Update: Eric10 at it again and noBing lasts forever (not even LightBing)
This week saw a fair number of points, with the Giro going on, with California coming in and also some smaller races like Tour de l'Ain. This weeks are also, as can be expected, significantly higher than last two weeks. This week is rather eventful with Eric10 winning another update and the reign of Lightbing finally being overthrown.


This week's top scorers:
1.Eric10 755
2.Guybrush 609
3.AlyKaptan 604
4.Guilherme Ribero 571
5.ChrisDK 520

Eric10 winning back to back updates. With Gaviria, Van Poppel, De Plus, Mcnulty - and oh did I mention Simon Yates? - all being not super common and earning significant points, he is the clear victor of the week. Guybrush's South American oriented approach also reaps a high score, with Gaviria, Bernal and Martinez being his most important point scorers. AlyKaptan relies mostly on Yates power, having both brothers in his team. Guilherme Ribero also sports Bernal and has rare picks Ravasi and Nuno Miguel Alves Matos Bicos as rare picks scoring some significant points. ChrisDK earns his 5th place mostly with Bernal, Ewan and De Plus.

This Week's High Movers
1 Eric10 (+35)
2 zlev11 (+15)
3 archieboy (+13)
4 AlyKaptan (+12)
4 Guybrush (+12)
6 torcia_86 (+10)

Eric10 unsurprisingly winning this competition as well. Besides the players already mentioned in the above section about this weeks highest scorers, we find zlev11, archieboy and torcia_86. Zlev11 is relying again on Yates. Archieboy has no huge scorers, but with Martinez, Mohoric, McNulty and Durasek earning rare points he still moves up 13 places. Torcia_86 has Martinez as well and also Van Poppel.

Green Jersey Competition
1 Eric10 162
2 LightBing 150
3 ChrisDK 120
4 Squire 117
5 Kryvo 112

For the first time since I started doing updates we see a change at the top! Eric10's charge, winning back-to-back updates sees him overtake LightBing. Meanwhile ChrisDK entered the top 5 forcing Wallenquist down to 6th.

Top 10 Overall
1 Eyeballs Out 6573
2 LightBing 6511
3 ruvu75 6483
4 trackstand 6429
5 Wallenquist 6407
6 TheArt 6324
7 Squire 6304
8 Kryvo 6284
9 GP Blanco 6259
10 MADRAZO 6192

Not only has LightBing been chucked out of the hot seat in the green jersey competition, he's also overtaken by Eyeballs_Out in the overall. What a terrible week for LightBing! Has any man faced such travail since the dawn of the cq game?! Besides this shock, there are some minor movements. MADRAZO enters the top 10, while scrooll07 leaves it.

But what does it all mean, with the Giro and its abundantly pointed GC casting its ominous glare forward in our direction? Tune in next week to find out!

Provided nothing out of the ordinary happens tomorrow, I'll have 3 riders in the top-10 of the Giro. Lopez, Oomen and Formolo :) Brambilla did well enough with a 19th spot, worth 70 points. Pantano is a bit of a let-down.

Yep, this week might probably be my highlight of the year. Just counting today, the Giro delivered 1300+ points for me. Carapaz and Bennett as the relatively rare picks on top of Lopez, Oomen, Formolo, Brambilla, Ciccone, Chavez, Gesink...

I said it earlier, but it seems I picked my team based on "who could do well in the Giro..."

I think my team, which has been quite mediocre all year, will finally have a good week.

update: ruvu75 more like ruvu1

Huge points coming in with the Giro GC points with many people scoring 1000+ points this update, so let's dive right in:

this week's top scorers
1 HelgeBlendet 1778
2 zlev11 1421
3 shalgo 1375
4 torcia_86 1372
5 kabete 1208

HelgeBlendet wins the week with a whopping 1778 points! Lopez, Oomen, Bennett, Carapaz, Gesink, Ciccone, Coquard, Lambrecht, Formolo and Brambilla all score more than 80 points and many of them quite a bit more than that. In second place we have zlev11 who's busy with a very good week; he earns his points Yates, Lopez, Oomen, Formolo with 100+ points and various riders not much below 100. Shalgo and Torcia both have some of the more common high earning picks and also Carapaz. Kabete doesn't have Carapaz, but he has some rare points with Schachmann and Dion Smith, while also having a ton of smaller earners which add up to some significant points. (Honorable mention to the 6th placed player of the week, with Oomen, Bennett and Ciccone as some of his rarer picks who did well this week.)

This Week's High Movers
1 HelgeBlendet (+46)
2 zlev11 (+34)
3 shalgo (+31)
4 laarsland (+21)
5 derrudi (+20)

With the monstrous score HelgeBlendet is also the highest mover by some distance. Zlev and Shalgo up there as well as is to be expected. Laarsland is fourth, but overall, having picked Aru, I imagine he can't be too happy with this Giro. He has a rare pick in Schachmann who has done very well though. Derrudi has some fairly rare points as well with Oomen, Andersen and Gesink.

Green Jersey
1 Eric10 162
2 LightBing 150
3 Squire 127
4 ChrisDK 120
5 Kryvo 112

Not too much change here. Squire is the only on in the top 5 who earns some points which is enough for him to pass ChrisDK.

Overall Ranking
1 ruvu75 7566
2 Eyeballs Out 7506
3 Squire 7445
4 TheArt 7413
5 LightBing 7388
6 Wallenquist 7387
7 GP Blanco 7348
8 trackstand 7315
9 MADRAZO 7176
10 scrooll07 7151

Now that LightBing's reign has come to an end, it looks like we are now in a less stable period, with the lead changing again. Ruvu75 edges out Eyeballs Out by 80 points to take the lead. Behind them Squire, who's had another good week, joins them on the podium. LightBing keeps dropping and tracksand lost four places. Further below scrooll07 gets back into the top 10, while Kryvo drops out.

Thanks for the update!

That's probably as good as it gets for my team for a while. Shooting up 46 places this far into the season sure is fun. Now let me find a parachute while my riders are all resting...

I'll be doing the June updates. I can maybe do July too, but if someone else can step up, that'll be great.


This week is gonna be crumbs compared to the Giro GC points.

Skoda-Tour de Luxembourg (2.HC)
DE BIE Sean

Probably too hard for him.

Boucles de la Mayenne (2.1)
JONES Brenton

Jones has been more or less a disaster in Europe so far. He can still score some handy points by being 8th or so in 1.1 and 1.HC races, but for stage races like this one I have no hopes.

Hammer Sportzone Limburg (2.1)
MAS Enric
VAN POPPEL Danny
OOMEN Sam
ENGER Sondre Holst

A lottery, and not a lot of points on offer anyway.

Market Heistse Pijl (1.1)
BOL Cees

Seems like I need to put my faith in my unique pick for this week.

There's also the Dauphiné prologue. Maybe Thomas or Alaphilippe can score a point or two there, but the big Dauphiné points are reserved for next week.

Not at all surprising I dropped a bunch of places this week. However, I am happy that I now have two more riders in positive points. Brambilla is now into positive points as is Betancur. That is at least something. Plus Lluis Mas is only a handful of points away from positive points.

Also feeling good about my Duaphine team which will have:
Marc Soler
Jaime Roson
Jaime Castrillo
Jasha Sutterlin
Niki Terpstra
Steve Cummings
Lawson Craddock
Neilson Powless

My team for the Dauphine is not as bad as I feared

Boswell
Restrepo
Coquard
Latour
Bohli
Brambilla
Haussler
Kennaugh

It's still a collection of guys I thought/hoped would do much better than they did so far.
