I usually put up the whole scroll of shame, rather than just the top ten, on rest days so that most of us can see just how badly we are doing., but this is one stage later.

Red points

The Time Trial is usually good for a bit of a shake up, but not at the top this time.

It wasn't a bad ride at all by Mas compared to expectations, but these points can be cruel. The rest day testing withdrawals take a bite out of many teams.

Standings
Mas and Bennett were mainly why DJW had been top: they are also the reason why he takes the biggest losses on the stage.
Although the support from Almeida is rather less than the 11 managers that picked him might have hoped for, that is all the meaningful support that Evenepoel has in bringing Evans is the Best to the top of the table.

Evenepoel can only lose points in the GC projections, and is unlikely to gain the 30 possible extras he would get by overtaking Pedersen in the green jersey, but he might have another 180 red jersey bonuses to come, plus whatever stage points and improvement in the KoM ranking might come his way. So who has the riders who can combine their earnings in weeks 2 and 3 to stop this being a one-rider victory?

At least the interforum challenge is close: VR regain the lead 730-714
 
Reactions: Blues in the bottle
Two riders DNS today, each of whom performed well yesterday and might have given their respective managers some hope for extra points to follow. But no-one suffers the double whammy of having both, and the highest placed to be staring wistfully at a gap in the GC points column is Vladimir in 7th.

And although it is not quite a zero sum game, it is (if we exclude any weighting as to how many times, if at all, a rider is selected) only a -15 point per rider sum game, then others gain from their riders moving into vacated GC spots. Del 1962 crosses the start line today 103 points better off than he crossed the finish line yesterday.

A lot of the points that were gained as riders moved up yesterday to fill the places of Yates and Sivakov are reversed today, with Kelderman and Polanc overtaking so many in GC.

I'm saying nothing.

Maybe there is something to be said for a more balanced team rather than expecting one rider to get all your points.

Northerner and Bminchow share their top scoring 4 riders, so I had to go to the 5th one for the tiebreaker.

All three teams that overtake EitB today have Mas, Lopez and Carapaz; DJW and Bonimenier both also have Kelderman as their second best scorer, while Mellow Velo's second highest rider is officially the second best sprinter in the Vuelta: Marc Soler.

Something more impactful in the game than this will happen tomorrow, whether by misfortune or outstanding performance. But to whose benefit?
 
Stage 14 first of the Sierra double, and signs of vulnerability

Green points
lots of them

I'll show a bit farther down than usual, because it sems churlish to deny someone who has 1st and 2nd a mention.
The top 4 all have Carapaz, Lopez and Almeida: Salvarani additionally has Mas.

Tomorrow could be major...
 
Stage 15 Sierra Nevada, but not much snow at these temperatures.

Green points
Another day when plenty of points are scored, with all bar one of the top ten selected.

Hopefully I will get a chance to do some rider data tomorrow.

In the meantime, VeloRooms lead 951 to 927, it looks increasingly like the 4 seasons challenge lead will have changed hands during the final event, and the spreadsheet is here.

Rest day 2

Rider scores, and which of our higher placed teams have which good scorers.

Green points
Those with a second place or higher, or accumulated stage points to that effect.

Sorry for the delay: I hadn't bothered watching a featureless uneventful sprint stage until late, and when I did it seemed much more interesting to read about it and watch recaps than to do the update.

Stage 16
As far as the scores in the game on the day are concerned, just the sleepy post-restday sprint that was predicted.

Green points
We have not excelled at picking sprinters in this race.

Post-Roglic
But this morning told us something very different about projected scores for many riders.
I haven't tried to account for Taaramae, Conca or Coquard, but when we consider the shifts after Roglic's withdrawal:

7 teams, including the top 5 overall, gain 100 or more points from this, while DJSprtsch and Yellow Knight suffer heavily from their big spends on the no longer defending champion.

More later...
 
Stage 17
As above, the main action for the stage happened a few hours before they started, but an interesting enough finish for a breakaway.

The next stage of DJW's relentless march to world domination tomorrow.
 
Sorry: family issues last evening (no, not that family)

Stage 18 breakaway broken at the last

Only a couple of km left in today's stage: I'll be back soon.
 
Stage 19
Riders went round in circles, not a lot happened.

Green points
A 2 point bonus for the majority of teams that they wouldn't have been expecting today.

Red points
When the biggest news in the classifications is Okamika rising to 8th in the points competition, you know that there will not be big point swings.

Red points
Rodriguez lost a couple of places after his fall a couple of stages ago: that doesn't hurt any of our teams, but gives a late bonus to those with Almeida or Arensman.

Given how poor our scores have been on sprint stages since Bennett left the race, it's hard to see much changing tomorrow. Its an evening stage, but I'll confirm the outcomes (as though there were much doubt) asap.
 
Reactions: Blues in the bottle
While we are waiting, and in the assumption that there will be no more non-finishers

How badly hurt have teams been by DNFs?

4 non-finishers: BluesInTheBottle, Zigzag_Wanderer
3: Comodoro, DJSprtsch, Laarsland, Mellow_Velo, Search, Vladimir
2: 18_Valve, ArchieBoy, BicycleBoy, Bminchow, BR2, JumboVismaFan, Leadbelly, Otoxiep87, RedheadDane, Rufs, Titan31, Triley36
1: AmisVelo, Armchair_Cyclist, DJW, Evans_is_the_Best, Madrazo, Northerner, Pman, Salvarani, Yellow_Knight
All 8 completing the race: Bonimenier, Del1962, LosBrolin, Rote_Laterne, Scrooll07

But some DNFs hurt more than others
Roglic Cost 2496 (gained 198) DJ Sprtsch and Yellow Knight
Hayter 1264 (15) Bicycle Boy
Alaphilippe 1231 (6) Redhead Dane
Yates 899 (12) 18-Valve, Blues in the Bottle, Madrazo, Rufs, Search, TRiley36, Vladimir
Sivakov 587 (37) Archie Boy, Armchair Cyclist, Bminchow, Titan31

Results seem to be up, so final update (with very little to show for it) coming shortly...

Red points
No positional change in the top 50 on GC, and no hills, but some shifting in the Green jersey competition. Also, although Evenepoel does not get 18 red jersey points for today, I forgot to include them yesterday, so I will today (which will please EitB).

A bit of number crunching and the 4 Seasons result tomorrow.
Thanks to all entrants, and to the riders and, as ever, to CQRanking, and congratulations on his overwhelming double to DJW.

Red points
No positional change in the top 50 on GC, and no hills, but some shifting in the Green jersey competition. Also, although Evenepoel does not get 18 red jersey points for today, I forgot to include them yesterday, so I will today (which will please EitB).
