Needless to say, the most popular rider among Fantasy Tour participants is Lance Armstrong. This Texan got about 75% of the votes in the "A" category, and didn't need any hand recount to win the "DP Elections". Lance for President, and Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano for VicePresident.

The third most popular choice was Tom Steels. And the worst one too, as the Belgian just pulled out of competition on Stage 5, after doing close to nothing in the previous days of racing. Many votes for Leipheimer and Hamilton, while nobody chose Rubens Bertogliati. As for Trade Teams, in this "competition" USPS easily beat ONCE, and iBanesto.com got plenty of "votes" too, while seems that many forgot how strong CSC-Tiscali is (only 9 competitors opted for Jaja and Hamilton's squad) .

So the "people's team", made up of the most popular/unoriginal picks, is as follows :

Lance Armstrong;
Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano - Tom Steels - Levi Leipheimer;
Brad McGee - Damien Nazon - Jan Svorada;
David Moncoutie;
Addy Engels;
USPS;
iBanesto.com
