    Final Result
    Witton 9028
    PeteS 7524
    Llani 5389

    Using a big chunk of my 100 points on Pogacar paid off. His total score was 3719, way ahead of 2nd place Danny Martinez on 2378.
    Having said that, Pete had the 2nd, 3rd and 6th best overall points scorers and suffered from the loss of Woods and losing Kooij also cost him perhaps 300-400 points so a good showing under the circumstances.
    The low scores of De Marchi and Theuns also didn't help.
    The lower value picks can be a bit of a lottery.

    Losing Dunbar early cost Llani and Caleb Ewan never really got a blow in during the sprints. After his HM performance I doubt he cares though

    Just a heads up, I think the Dauphine will be open later this week.

    I'll keep an eye on it and alert on here ASAP.

    Hopefully we can get one or two more giving it a go.

    Thanks for doing the groundwork WP.

    I'll study the form more closely for the next one!

    There's a lot of luck involved Llani. Had Pog fallen ill or crashed I'd have been stuffed, and I was also helped by my worst points scorer being Chaves.
    My 6 and 8 pointers came up trumps, but that's rare and a lottery, rather than form selection

    Thanks WP - hopefully we can get a few more involved for the tour.
    I knew Pog was going to score highly but I doubt any of us foresaw how dominant he was going to be.
    Pleased with final results though considering I lost 2 who should have been good for a few points. Strangely I toyed with Julian Alaphilippe in place of Woods but decided he was past his best and wouldn't win a stage or feature highly on any others....

    Just me and you then Llani

    Still, it's the quality not the quantity

    The others are probably keeping their powder dry for the Tour, especially Graham

    I was away and missed the deadline. Will definitely be up for Le Tour though.

    Nearly caught you WP. Only 19 points in it at the finish.

    I'm starting to get the hang of this.

    See you on The Tour!
