2nd FABIO'S FANTASY TOUR ("FantaSTour 2002") / Riders Results and Overall Ranking - PROLOGUE: Here are the Rider scores for Saturday's prologue, with Lance Armstrong (chosen by more of than 190 Fantasy Game players out of almost 260, so I guess LA's performances will hardly be the deciding factor in this game ...) immediately taking the lead thanks to his perhaps unexpected win.
Many points also for "Jaja" and Rumsas. The Once-Eroski duo from the Basque Country (Galdeano & Beloki) was a little disappointing, while other favorites of the Fantasy Tour participants (Moreau, Hamilton, Leipheimer) finished far from the TOP 30.
Today only the "Stage Result" and "Overall Ranking" related point were awarded. The "Points Classification", "KOM" and "Young Riders" points will be awarded starting from Sunday's first leg of the TdF.
As for the Virtual Team scores, the first 14 points (but 20 will be awarded daily starting from tomorrow) went to the mighty USPS, once again thanks to Armstrong.
