How many stages will pass before we have a stage winner that somebody picked? Tomorrow's favourite, Philipsen, is also a candidate for the Collective Ignorance team.

Standings
Everyone with S Yates and Hindley has 57 points, making a 12 way tie for the lead.

Main Game
Riders' projected points can change downwards, so points can be lost as well as won Vingegaard moved up 3 on GC and 5 in the polka dots; S Yates dropped 1 place in GC and 4 in the sprints classification). I'll mention each day only the main changes (although some days it requires very little to be main) and only from among the riders chosen by at least one team.

Changes today
The top 5 are the 5 Vingegaard teams. They couldn't afford many other riders who would have gained significant points yesterday, so haven't lost many today.
By the same token, the Pogacar team scored even better than them.

Carapaz being a DNF only costs his teams 20 points on this table, but the real cost is of what he might have got.

Standings
All the teams near the top are there because of Yates (when I mention him here, assume I mean Simon, as Adam wasn't picked at all) and therefore end up in the red today, but Rufs loses considerably fewer, mainly because of Rodriguez and Teuns. Amis Velo is the highest placed who made profit today.

I should be able to post at a more reasonable hour tomorrow. On sprint stages, the stage points tend to dominate the changes in the main game (as well as obviously in the Green jersey classification).

If the unpicked Philipsen continues to dominate the sprint stages, then the idea of a balance between GC and stage points might not be an issue.

rest of the update when I get back from Mother-in-Law's (if I haven't committed geronticide while there)

Main CQ Points
I should start calling these 'yellow points', although it is more than just the GC points, because 'Main Game' in discussion hereabouts usually refers to the season long CQ game run by Skidmark.

Other than the sprinters' points and their rise in the green jersey, Hindley gets a deceptively impressive looking 30 point boost for lower aggregate finish position that Woods

A 1-2-4 on the day is very impressive.

Queen Stagiare was already fairly well placed in this through Bauhaus and Cavendish: today's dominance brings the lead.

I doubt there will be many days with bigger point swings than this, except when (if?) Vingegaard takes the top from Hindley.

I have no intention of going through all the old editions of the game to check (but if you want to, have at it and let us know), but I am fairly sure 1100 points plus as a daily swing in unprecedented. Nearly 300 over second on the day might not be, but is still pretty massive.

Standings
The top 5 today take the top 5 positions: only one was thereabouts this morning. ArchieBoy has Ciccone and Gall, and therefore moved up despite not having Hindley, and is the only non-Hindley team above any that do have him.

Stage 6
Own up, who thought it was all over yesterday.

Green points
More than half the players identified Johannessen as a cheaper pick who might do something, so plenty of medium ranked scorers between him and Hindley

Don't assume that a bad daily differential means that a rider is doing poorly: Hindley's score today looks horrendous, but he is still scoring a very worthwhile 509 points at the moment.

change on the day
Having got a probable record score yesterday, Queen Stagiare takes fairly catastrophic losses today. But still about 500 up over the Pyrennean stages, so that's not bad.

Standings
Four of the five Vingegaard teams were the top 4 'on the day' scores: the fifth one, the only one pairing him with Hindley, is top of the overall. Rote Laterne nearly got back to the top, very closely followed by Postman Hat: both of those teams are headed by the combination of Hindley, Yates and Rodriguez.

A few calmer days to follow. We have probably already seen on Monday and Tuesday the teams who are likely to thrive for the next little while.
 
Stage 7
Is that as close as he will get to history?

Green points
Girmay finally starts paying back the teams that have picked him. The teams with Jakobsen will be questioning their decision.

Limited change in green jersey, less in GC and none in Polka dots, but 20 more pts for the Vingegaard teams. So not the huge changes we have seen for the last couple of days.

Yellow points
All about falls today:

Cavendish keeps his stage points, but loses his (ironically, 35) projected green jersey points
Cras at the beginning of this stage had the highest projected return on investment of any rider in the race
S Yates and Landa drop some GC places.

But where one rider drops,another rises to replace him, so there are some positive scores

Before you claim "But if it weren't for my picks that have DNFed...", Postman Hat is one of 8 teams that has lost both Carapaz and Cavendish.

Puy de Dome after 35 years. Not quite Anquetil and Poulidor, but the battle is very much on.

Slightly better than yesterday, but whoever most of us picked for breakaways didn't do it today.

(I would have suspected that Johannessen should have lost 14 today, and the fact that he has dropped only 4 makes me conclude that I have been inaccurate in the points allocated in the polka dot classification for a few days. But that should be right now)

Even fewer positive scores than yesterday.

For once my policy of not including riders from the season game is paying off as I don't have Bernal, which has compensated for the loss of Carapaz. And Cavendish's exit is probably being offset by Jakobsen's anonymity so far. Assuming Hindley, Yates (!) and Rodriguez don't fall away, then my path to glory will probably be decided by Johannessen and Gall?
 
Sorry its late. It'll be hurried too.

A GC relevant break like that gaining a few positions makes a very big positive difference to a few riders' predicted points, and a considerable negative one to a few others.

I had expected to see a lot more negative scores there: I guess most of the losses were offset by O'Connor.

Standings
Huge jumps forward for two of the teams with Bilbao, while Samu at least moves from the gruppetto to be close to the back of the peloton.

Should be more timely today...
 
Stage 11

Bog standard formulaic sprint stage: standard result. Don't expect me to make up a headline if there is nothing to report...

Green points

With Cavendish gone, Jakobsen virtually absent, Philipsen and Groenewegen having been (presumably) deemed too expensive, and Girmay underperforming, sprint stages have become mainly about Bauhaus plus a few scraps.

Standings
Six of the seven teams with Bauhaus are in the top ten in this classification, but the leader hangs on despite missing him. Search has at least a 3rd place from 7 of his 8 riders to make up for it (and 4 of the 5 selected riders with the highest green points) .

Yellow points

So insignificant are the gains and losses, that if I leave any of them out there are scarcely enough to be worth listing.

Not surprisingly, the 7 Bauhaus teams followed by the 5 Vingegaard teams.

Standings
Where there are changes in position, it is probably simply indicating that the teams involved were already very close rather than an indication of momentum or major advantage gained.

Tomorrow looks likely to be a breakaway: will any of your riders be in it? Will it include anyone high enough in GC to make any significant points losses for those who stay in the peloton?
