Standings
Little stability in the table so far: leader Skidmark was 4th at the beginning of May, and Squire leaps from 16th to 3rd. That is the biggest jump, but Fauniera's 5 place move within the top ten is notable, and Cordi is also a new face, just, in the top ten.

Ludwigzgz (winner of the first edition of this game) makes a huge jump from 19th to top of the table. Karaev is in the shade, having jumped only 12 places to 2nd place. Comodoro and Nathanptz are both new in the top ten, and the collective wisdom team is still leading the way.

Year 1 Month 8/9 7th August to 30th September (2 months together; I was rather busy with the Vuelta game at the beginning of Sept: I think I had intended doing a mid Sept update, but that didn't happen)

There were much bigger races in this period, but some decent scores accumulated.

SOSA CUERVO Ivan Ramiro 226 points (Burgos GC win, with a stage win and 2nd, and 6th in l'Avenir) for 12 teams
VAN SCHIP Jan-Willem 211 (won Slam og Nord, 4th in Great War remembrance, 5th in Antwerp Port, 8th in Eurometropole etc) for Comodoro, Karaev, Nathanptz
PHILIPSEN Jasper 207 (4th in Eurometropole, 8th in GP Impanis, Stage win and 2nd in Utah, and more) 21 teams
BALLERINI Davide 185 ( won Memorial Pantani and Trofeo Matteotti) for Madrazo

Standings
The top three in this period had a bot of a margin over the rest, and are now the top three overall. Karaev was already 2nd, and now is top of the table, followed by Nathanptz on the back of a 6 place rise (best since the last update), and Comodoro up from 6th. Laarsland and Squire appear in the top ten.

Year 1 Month 10/11 1st October to 18th November (and therefore effectively to the end of the season) It didn't seem worth doing an end of October update if that left only a handful of November races to make a separate job out of.

JAKOBSEN Fabio 161 points (2 stage wins, 2 other podiums and the points win in Guangxi, 2nd in HammerHK) for 27 teams
MADOUAS Valentin 134 (Paris-Bourges win, 5th in Paris-Tours) 10 teams

Standings

The only member of the previous top ten to move upwards is Kryvo, but the two teams above him in this period, Hugo K and Scrool, move up by 5 and 4 places respectively, Hugo appearing in the top ten. Will the riders who have not yet lived up to expectation come through in the remaining two seasons, or is the basic shape of the table already established?

Year 1 End of year

Those two managers who sought early season glory through Gonzalo Najar get their 142 points of comeupance, with popular picks Narvaez and Ganna getting 1 and 14 points respectively in the reallocation of honours in the Vuelta a San Juan. Castrillo (6 teams) and Carretero (20 gain points from the disqualification of Igor Merino from his 8th place in the Spanish national ITT. Blues in the Bottle has all 4 of those riders who will now feel they have a more just points haul.

So the slightly revised end of year standings, 1/3 of the way through in terms of time, although rather less than that for points, are:
1 Karaev 4687
2 Nathanptz 4590
3 Comodoro 4504
4 Kryvo 4480
5 TheAsian 4425
6 Ludwigzgz 4345

DENZ Nico 262 0
MÄDER Gino 255 0

TOTAL

The Collective Ignorance Team (those we all missed out on, headed by Janssens, Aranburu, Nenz and Mader) would have 4946 points, and a healthy lead. The actual leader, Karaev, has 67.4% of the 6950 possible.

Appart from Najar, with his retracted points, 3 selected riders remain pointless (DAL-CIN Matteo, GAZZOLI Michele and PEÑA MOLANO Wilson Estiben), and among those picked ten or more times without really justifying the hype (yet: they still have 2 years to prove their worth) are ALBANESE Vincenzo, VANHOUCKE Harm, OWEN Logan and RIVERA SERRANO Kevin. At least Albanese has now reached the 200 career total, so his repeated popularity while underacheiving will not be repeated.

Hope this whets your appetite for the new edition, so long as you think you can hold concentration until the end of 2021: official launch should be before the end of the day/year.

Really excited about this game.... It is a shame that I missed the 2017-19 edition but I hope I will remain first on this one till the end! Already started to look for riders for the 2019-21 game!

Keep up the good work Armchair cyclist!

Chris Hamilton in 2018 did not finish in the top-18 of the best team of the year. But this year 2019 he started it on a motorcycle of 500 c.c .; until now he has scored 131 points. And it will go up many positions ... and I with him :D

Don't be surprised if the March update is slightly delayed: it will be the weekend of the first races in the Spring Classics game, so I might be a bit busy with that (watch our for news of it soon), but it should appear during that first week of March.

Here is the spreadsheet, but some columns are redundant or unupdated, because the first month each year requires slightly different calculation.
