Meh, another mediocre week. Hopefully this week will finally be good again. Haven't good too much for the cobbles this season, but for Abu Dhabi my team will be pretty good. With 19 active riders this week I should get something, no?!

Superman Lopez 145
Coquard 48
Oomen 30
Nizzolo 20
Bettiol 15
Cavendish 15
Terpstra 5
Conci 5
Felline 5
Kangert 5
Senechal 5

Pretty disappointing week for me. Had hoped for a better result for Oomen in Algarve but apparently he has some knee issues. Hope this isn't going to develop into a chronic injury.
I had a long list of riders starting in Oman but so I had high hopes but it ended up being a dud. Felline is my most expensive pick and I had hoped for at least a top-10 here, but after a promising showing on stage 2 he completely faded away. Conci is my rarest pick (4 picks) and he was looking good until he crashed on stage 4. He lost a couple minutes on Green Mountain and then many more minutes on the final flat stage, causing him to slide down the rankings. Fabio Jakobsen was Quickstep's designated sprinter yet he was nowhere to be seen.

Positives: Terpstra showed decent form and Bettiol picked up some points despite being in the race with Van Avermaet. I hope he will get the chance to be more than a glorified domestique.

Should have picked Lopez. Pretty damn obvious by now, can't believe I didn't. Not sure what the hell I was thinking.

Disappointing week, but not unexpected. I was hoping to stay in the top 5 for a while. Putting it all on the line in Abu Dhabi with 13 riders. Something has to happen!! This is all I'm watching this week. Don't tell my boss.

Update #6: Winning is a Fine Art

**note: I'm looking for people to take on the posting of the updates for the following months: May, June, July. If you are interested, please let me know either here or by PM, thanks!**

I have very limited time this week, so this update will be a little lower level of detail than normal. But a big week, with 3 2.HC and a 2.1 race, and even more riders getting their seasons underway.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank Team Points this week
1 TheArt 661
2 PeterB 592
3 archieboy 555
4 zaka_fan 533
5 ruvu75 519

Big week this week for TheArt, being one of only 2 teams with Lutsenko, one of 24 with Geraint Thomas, and one of many with Lopez. That mix of rare to popular riders was a winner this week, breaking 600 points. PeterB has Kruijswijk and Fuglsang in place of Lutsenko, and with the other two riders it's enough for second. archieboy rounds out the podium.

This Week's High Movers


Rank Team Up/down
1 TheArt (+81)
2 PeterB (+52)
3 ruvu75 (+51)
4 zaka_fan (+50)
5 Object (+49)

Similar table here, with the incredibly notable jump of EIGHTY ONE spots by our weekly winner, nearly 2/3 of the table in one fell swoop. PeterB gets second here, and their jump is notable because it's into the top ten! Quite the move this week. ruvu75 is very close behind in third.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank Team Total
1 Jon_Ezeitza 90
2 ChrisDK 72
3 PeterB 57
4 Nathanptz 54
5 18-Valve. (pithy) 52

A weekly win of 45 points will no longer get you in the top 5 overall; this competition is starting to flesh out. PeterB and Nathanptz score to leap into the top 5, the others were already there last week.

Top 10 Overall

Rank Up/down Team Points
1 (+1) Nathanptz 1841
2 (+11) Popchu 1706
3 (+6) l'velo 1680
4 (-3) bminchow 1658
4 (+8) LosBrolin 1658
6 (+22) Squire 1649
7 (-4) abbulf 1646
8 (+52) PeterB 1599
9 (+13) DJ Sprtsch 1574
10 (-2) CQmanager 1552

Some big moves in the top 10 this week! bminchow slides down after a week on top, and last week's runner up Nathanptz takes over with a pretty decent lead over 2nd. Popchu leaps into the top 10 right up to second, and l'velo bounces back after sliding a bit and regains the podium. Popchu, LosBrolin, Squire, PeterB and DJ Sprtsch all jump into the top 10 overall this week.

Wow, I moved up a few spots and have a rider in green. (well actually 2, but one of those started with 0 points). That's awesome.

Very good news to the 1 team that dared to gamle with Juan Jose Lobato, with him now signing for Nippo. That is perhaps the best team of all for him to score high, and likely much better than one of the 3 smaller spansih pro-conti teams that very probably seen as the most likely destinations. When the fairly similar but a bit slower Canola could score 905 points with Nippo last year, Lobato could well match that and become a very good pick now if he gets back to his best form. I am glad he is only on 1 team, but nice pick by that team for sure.

Yeah, not on my team, but I'm glad he's found a team to sign with. I do happen to like him.

I should be really happy about the Abu Dhabi GC having 3 riders from the top 6 in my team, but the simple fact that Valverde is so freakin good starts to worry me. Before the game I thought picking him is foolish since anyone who picked him was just assuming he would make much more points than last year because of his injury. While that seems to make sense, simply assuming Valverde will replicate the best spring he's ever had, after that horrible injury, at this age seemed like a bet with very bad odds. But now he isn't only replicating his last spring, so far he is even better. He rode more stage races than last year, he won both of them, one of them is WT, and since his next race will probably be Catalunya again, there is also a long enough pause between these two races that riding more this year probably won't cause a worse result in Catalunya. Valverde has 550 points so far and the season has hardly started. If he keeps going like this, where is his ceiling? 4000 points? For sure clearly more than 3000.
