Pretty much the same for me. Last couple of weeks have seen me move into the top ten, but the Tour will be damage limitation at best. Most of my big misses are riding (Thomas, Gaudu, Mollema, SK), and It'll need a fairly fortunate combination of circumstances for this team to gain even a few hundred pointsLast couple of weeks have been good for me, but I'm not expecting too much points in the TdF.

The highest I can think of would be the 3,235 of 2019 Roglic.Yeah, but the thing is he already has 1878 points in 2021. And he will get 600p for the win and 200p (10x20) for being the leader. And surely he will have two or three more top three finishes with a total of approx. 200p. That's 1000p to the 1878. So maybe not well over 3000 as I wrote, but pretty close.
Quick check of the last 10 years showed me that Sagan had 3307 in 2016. With the Vuelta on his calender it's not impossible for Pogacar to reach that.The highest I can think of would be the 3,235 of 2019 Roglic.
Valverde is another regular high scorer and his best was around 3,100.
So it will depend on what he does post tour.
Correct, the best end-of-season score belongs to Sagan. In fact the complete list of 3000 points season in the CQ database is (yes this is just a shameless way to shoehorn a reminder that Purito was really, really good):Quick check of the last 10 years showed me that Sagan had 3307 in 2016.

PCS has a different scoring system, but has applied it, presumably with some consistency, back into previous years. Points are in the same range as CQ.So I ran the numbers for Merckx in 1972 (his best year in my opinion) and I got a very conservative estimate (bunch of races where we don't have the full results ie potential placings lost, races that no longer exist that I ranked as .1 even though they were probably much more prestigous back then) of over 6400 points.
That's basically the two best seasons of the last 20 years stacked on top of each other and that doesn't even include a legendary hour record and all his other work on the track.
Sean Kelly 1984-1986 is pretty good too.PCS has a different scoring system, but has applied it, presumably with some consistency, back into previous years. Points are in the same range as CQ.
The highest end of year CQ score (Sagan 2016, 3307 CQ points) is 3315 PCS points
Roche '87 is 3681
Jalabert '95 is 4714
Hinault had 4223 in 1979
but in the 6 seasons 1970-75, the worst score Merckx had was 5411 (1971) and the best was 6263 (1972). Cavendish won't be equalling that...
Fondriest (3711 in 1993) also merits a mention.
