Well that could have been much worse.

I had expected more from Soler and Roson out of the Duaphine.

On the other hand Valverde is about ready to get the second half of his season started.

I hope Brambilla is the leader because in that case this TTT would have been great for me too. I also hope that Ciccone will completely crush the opposition on the Giau

In Adriatica Ionica, I am hoping for an Atapuma, Pantano, Brambilla podium.

Update #23: Previous leader rejuvunated
(Very subtle pun this week)

Teams with Richie Porte usually have good Junes, and this year is no exception. Tour de Suisse was the arena for the big points this week, with a few x.1 races in France, Slovenia and Belgium added in.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank Team Points this week
1 Amis_Velo 831
2 zaka_fan 806
3 bminchow 738
4 Leadbelly 700
5 search 667

With Porte, Quintana and Mas going 1st, 3rd & 4th in the Tour de Suisse, Amis_Velo takes the win this week. Weekly runner-up zaka_fan actually had a Suisse 1-2 with Porte and Fuglsang, but with no Mas it was no más for zaka_fan. bminchow in 3rd has a slightly more 'conventional' team, with Oomen and Mas adding to the Porte points.

This Week's High Movers

Rank Team Up/down
1 search (+17)
2 bminchow (+16)
3 Nicosix (+14)
3 zaka_fan (+14)
5 Valv.Piti (+12)
5 skidmark (+12)
5 JSpear (+12)
5 Leadbelly (+12)

The ladder is crowded this week. search makes the biggest jump with race winners Porte and Valverde carrying them up 17 placings. bminchow makes it a double weekly podium, while Nicosix and zaka_fan shares 3rd place with a jump of 14 places.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank Team Total
1 Squire 162
1 Eric10 162
3 LightBing 150
4 archieboy 144
5 search 120
5 ChrisDK 120
5 Jon_Ezeitza 120

The good week for search helps them join the party in 5th place in the green jersey competition. Otherwise, no changes in the upper echelons. The lead is still shared between Squire and Eric10. 11 teams are still to score a point in this competition. One of them, Martin, was damned close this week, just 5 points off the weekly 15th place.

Top 10 Overall

Rank Up/down Team Points
1 (+1) ruvu75 8833
2 (-1) Squire 8705
3 (-) TheArt 8445
4 (-) Eyeballs Out 8415
5 (-) Wallenquist 8183
6 (-) Gigs_98 8086
7 (-) GP Blanco 8037
8 (-) trackstand 7936
9 (+1) MADRAZO 7933
10 (+4) scrooll07 7932

I'm spared further blushes as previous leader ruvu75 reclaims their lead after just one week. A very good weekly haul; 12th place with big points from Mas, Oomen and Kragh Andersen is more than enough for ruvu to overtake Team Squire by quite a considerable margin. Elsewhere, scrooll07 enters the top 10 at the expense of former leader LightBing who drops 5 places after a disappointing 124th on the week.

Yet another week to be very happy with having picked Hodeg and Maddous. Then I've got Fernandez who now just needs 7 points to get into the positive numbers and Carthy who's about 20 points from positive territory. Of course others who aren't doing nearly as well. Overall happy with my team. Of course Valverde had more nice points.

I have to assume that these guys were talking about why they suck so much this year on the way up Giau.

Just checking in for the first time in a couple of weeks... first, I wanna say congrats to Squire for landing first place last week! I know it's a belated congrats, but you've been so close a number of times that when I was scrolling through and reading chronologically through the thread, I almost fist-pumped. Nice work, and I'm sure there's a good chance you'll bounce back up there if the nationals and TdF go your way.

Second, I don't have anyone in particular who's offered to do the July updates; if anyone wants to do them, speak up and lemme know on this thread or by PM. Otherwise, I think I'm working remotely still until about July 10th, and will then be travelling. So I'll have fairly regular internet access, but updates might be a day or two after the CQ updates if I'm doing them. After July it should be smooth sailing.

Third, my team is in 36th place with some promising showings, but seems a little stuck. Boy, if only I had not dropped Formolo and De Bie from the final version of my team, yeesh. Ah well, I'm sure Lennard Kamna and Matvey Mamykin are gonna rip it up in the summer.

Update #24: greenedge doesn't just edge it

One small Belgian one-dayer, one small French one-dayer, one small Italian stage race and a ton of mostly obscure national championships. That was what was offered up this week. The most impactful pick was Ivan Sosa, who won the Adriatica-Ionica race. He's picked just 9 times, and this victory takes his points tally to 279 points. At a cost of 72, he's turning out to be a great pick. Belgian champion Yves Lampaert, picked twice, was the highest scoring pick this week, with 176 points.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank Team Points this week
1 greenedge 502
2 Kryvo 386
3 Leadbelly 383
4 Ferminal 380
5 Hakkie2 371

Dominating win for greenedge this week! 116 points ahead of 2nd place in a rather low-scoring week is very impressive! Sosa is a heavy hitter for the weekly winner, but what sets greenedge apart from the other Sosers are his abundant minor scorers. Vanmarcke, DVP, K.Hagen, D.Smith, A.Turgis and De Bie all contribute more than 30 points each to make it a resounding victory for the team.

Kryvo is the only one in the top 5 without Sosa. Instead, they're helped out by Valverde, I.Izagirre, Kudus, DVP and De Bie. The rather unique team of Leadbelly has another moment in the sun with consecutive top 5s. The main scorers Valverde & Sosa are rare but not that rare, however, unique picks Pierre Idjouadiene and Jakub Otruba both score more than 20 points.

This Week's High Movers

Rank Team Up/down
1 greenedge (+14)
2 Leadbelly (+9)
2 flashke (+9)
4 jsem94 (+8)
5 DJ Sprtsch (+7)

With greenedge absolutely smashing it this week, it's no bonus points for guessing who's the top mover. Another consecutive top 5 for Leadbelly here, who continues the upward trajectory. flashke equals Leadbelly's rise of 9 places.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank Team Total
1 Squire 162
1 Eric10 162
3 LightBing 150
4 Kryvo 147
5 archieboy 144

The lead is still split between Squire and Eric10, while Kryvo comes into the fray in 4th place.

Top 10 Overall

Rank Up/down Team Points
1 (-) ruvu75 9053
2 (-) Squire 9009
3 (-) TheArt 8702
4 (-) Eyeballs Out 8632
5 (-) Wallenquist 8365
6 (-) Gigs_98 8356
7 (-) GP Blanco 8326
8 (-) trackstand 8264
9 (+3) Total Package 8191
10 (-1) MADRAZO 8188

It's a very static situation in the upper echelons of the top 10 this week. Squire closes the distance to leader ruvu75 to just 44 points, while at the bottom end of the top 10, Total Package bumps out scrooll07.

Thanks! With Latour having a good national championship in both TT and RR, I think I might be back on top again next week. Then it's your responsibility to keep me there when you resume update duty! ;)

Thanks for the update.
Of course more nice points from Valverde definitely helps. Fernandez and Luis Mas have finally both hit positive numbers. Castrillo and Samitar both added a few points for the Spanish Championship weekend. Soler, Terpstra and Hodeg all added more points to their nice seasons.

Are other people getting a "SQL Server does not exist or access denied" message, or similar ones with various numerical codes, when they try to visit CQ? I have been since last night. Hope all is well there.

Thanks a lot for the update Squire. That was a ridiculously good week for me given how few races there were. 1st and 3rd at Ingooigem (Van Poppel and De Bie), 2nd at Adriatica for Ciccone and a nice bonus second place for Smith at Paris-Chauny. 8th on the week, but only moved up two places, so there must be some fairly sizeable gaps starting to appear in the table. Unfortunately, Smith is going to the Tour with Wanty so will probably knacker himself getting into pointless breaks for three weeks. Would have much preferred him to keep racking up the points in smaller races.

Van Poppels 2nd in the Dutch nationals, plus LaTours exploits will hopefully keep me ticking over.Considering half my team is Italian or Belgian, was a little disappointed to come away with nothing from those races, except De Plus's 4th in the TT. Will Moscon ever get going this year?

pretty good national championship week for me with significant points for van Baarle, van Poppel, Terpstra, Alaphillipe and Latour plus useful ones from unique pick Samoilau and near-unique Benoot.
