Green point scorers (stage points only)

The reason GC guys normally win the points classification at the Vuelta (but not the Giro or the Tour) is that there are the same points available regardless of the profile of the stage. That is true of course of CQ points as well, but the gradient of the points scale is much steeper on CQ, rewarding wins and seconds much more than lower places, so the outcome is quite different.

Four Seasons Challenge
20 managers entered the Spring Classics game and all three of the GTs, but given his huge winning margin in the classics, almost all Tobydawq needed to do was turn up for the three week races.

Spring Classics + Giro + Tour + Vuelta = Total (position change in Vuelta)
1 Tobydawq 3211 + 1973 + 1567 + 606 = 7357 (0)
2 AmisVelo 2183 + 1502 + 1947 + 1396 = 7028 (0)

Collective_Wisdom 1660 + 1637 + 1961 + 1062 = 6320



The spreadsheet that did all the work.

Thanks to the managers, the riders, and the guys at CQ.
 
Funny enough Valverde finished 4th in green points both in the way la Vuelta does them and the way our game does them.

Nice seeing three of my picks (and two being unique picks) on the best return on investment list. That's a nice bonus.

Thank you running these games.
