Update #12: Blues on top of the charts
A big classics week with a high-level Catalunya saw another wealth of points, and just like Tirenno-Adriatico, there was a Roglic/non-Roglic divide in the field (although with Catalunya a WT2 rather than WT1, it was just a little less pronounced). Let's see how things shook out!
This Week's Top Scorers
The top 5 all cracked 4 digit scores this week, with Blues in the bottle taking top spot by over 60 points. Of course, the main event was Roglic, who added another 473 points for his 57 owners, already at 79% of his1240 cost after two stage races. But much more surprisingly, BitB had a huge week from Ben Healy (4 teams), who scored 221 on the week and cost 167 overall. Other notable contributors were the now-in-profit Matteo Jorgenson (96 points, 5 teams), and Cian Uijtdebroeks (69 points, 67 teams). HoudiniCycling got second with Roglic and Jorgenson as well, and Almeida (164, 15), Woods (99, 6) and Groves (89, 7) also standing out. Sneekes ekes out third place with Roglic & Healy, but a bit less help than BitB.
This Week's High Movers
It is quite a rare event that the two weekly leaderboards are completely different, but here we go! I guess the other teams must have been pretty high on the chart already? Either way, Panda Claws takes this one, moving up 27 big spots on the leaderboard with a high-end combo of Roglic, MvdP (132 points, 15 teams) and Yves Lampaert (118, 10). scrooll07 (Roglic/Almeida) and Fivezzz (Roglic/Uijtdebroeks/Alexis Renard) split 2nd place.
Green Jersey Competition
And there's a new leader in this category too - one week after ceding the overall lead in the game, bminchow falls out of first in the Green Jersey as well, as BitB's 45 points on the week are enough to take over first. escartin is the only other team in the top 5 scoring this week, gaining 16 points to move into the top 5.
Top 10 Overall
Blues in the bottle completes the trifecta this week, leading the weekly, green jersey, and overall competitions! In fact, their placement to start the week (2nd overall) and their monster week means that they have a lead over 250 points to 2nd place. It's still fairly close aside from that, as 2nd-10th is within 200 points of each other. tobydawq, who finally unseated bminchow last week, has a less lengthy reign, falling off the podium. Riverside and HoudiniCycling move into the top 10 while adamski101 and bminchow fall 18 and 20 spots respectively, demonstrating the effects of not having Roglic in one of these weeks. The good news for teams like them is that Rogla is now off until the Giro (the bad news, of course, being that the Giro still gives lots of points).
This week is a bit more chill on the points front, with no major stage race and only 2 1.WT races... but the last one is a doozy, the Ronde. There are a few .PS and .1 races going on in France and Spain as well.
