Fantasy Tour - Virtual Teams - Prologue Results
 

2nd Fabio's Fantasy Tour ("FantaSTour 2002")

VIRTUAL TEAMS - PROLOGUE RESULTS: Here are he (provisional, as I'll check them one more time) results of the "Fantasy Prologue", with a surprising Australian win, as mr. Tim Kenington from OZ "soloed to victory" ahead of a bunch of 11 Americans.

His "ALLEZLANCE" Team (curiously 3 virtual teams in the stage TOP 4 has got the word "Lance" in their name - is there a better way to celeberate LA's victory in prologue ?) got 98 points, courtesy not just of Armstrong (40) and USPS (14), but also Jalabert (29) Botero (13) and ONCE's Beloki(2).

Behind mr. Kenington, there was a draw at 87 points between Amber McFarlane and Texan Karen Sholtz. In this case the tie-breaking rules decided that the "Austin Loves Lance :-)" squad took second and "JAM" was third place getter (indeed both got 40 points from LA, 29 from Jaja, 14 from USPS and 4 from IGG, but the squad from LA's state was posted before "JAM", and that proved to be the deciding factor, which will earn 20 additional points to Karen Sholtz in the GC, while Amber Mc Farlane will get 10 more points only).

A good start also for Fantasy Giro winner, Irishman John Graham ("Team Layna" got an excellent 14th place with 72 points) as well as Giro runner-up Keld Haagensen (one more points and a better placing than mr. Graham) from Denmark, while the Fantasy Tour reigning champion (last year's winner, Jan Dijkstra from the Netherlands) started his "title defense" in 58th place.

Only 14 teams (including "Barbarossa" a long-time leader during the Fantasy Giro) out of 256 were unable to get any point. This time the Tie-breaking Rules have been applied to the TOP 100 Virtual Teams only.
