The last contestant has just completed the cycling leg of the triathlon. The 15 clues that follow are with respect to this point in the race. From the clues you must determine: the color of shorts each runner is wearing, the positions at the end of the cycling leg, and the final standings.

Contestants in the race: Alvin, Brian, Chuck, David, Ethan, Frank
Colors of their shorts: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet

1) Brian moved up two places, now just behind the runner in the red shorts.

3) Frank moved ahead of the runner who wore the blue shorts.
4) The runner in the orange shorts took over the lead.
5) Ethan and the runner in the green shorts switched places.
6) David moved ahead of Brian, who was not wearing the blue shorts.
7) Chuck stubbed his toe, lost one position, and was now just ahead of Alvin.
