Pogacar did single handedly put a team into the top ten: had anyone selected van Aert that alone would have got them 8th in this table, without any other scorer.

costing 3979, scoring 2797, but only 57 in the popularity table.
 
First, the data I hadn't given at the end of the Tour, which I had decided a while ago I would put up today as a prompt for your Vuelta game entries.

Inter-Forum challenge
CN 1182
VR 1027
A resounding, if rare, victory for the team in purple.

4 seasons title
Points from the two GTs so far and the Spring Classics game, with the Vuelta to decide the honours. Leader BitB already has his team in for the Vuelta, but we shouldn't let him have a free run at it.

El Tramodolito update
But then we had yesterday's news about Quintana. I always regard whatever is the state of play at the end of the event according to CQ as the official record for the purposes of these games (to my own cost, blooming Roson). I don't apply the same reasoning outside of the games, it is just a matter of being able to put a game into history and move on.

So the changes noted below will not be in the the archived results or affect the 4 seasons challenge, but for interest only.

Quintana, who was on three teams, loses all 327 points. Those who benefited most are:

Leadbelly, with Bardet, Yates, Pinot and Thomas, would have seen the biggest boost to his score. The highest placed of the Quintana teams had been in 12th, so the major positions would not affected: DJSprtsch is the only manager in the top ten to gain a place when this is taken into account.
