Fantasy Tour: Virtual Teams - Stage 14 RESULTS & GC
 

Important !!!! : First of all, three important things to say:

* The "Best Team Name Award": The Daily Peloton jury has finally chosen five Virtual Team names, the ones that got the biggest number of votes. The winner of the competition, to emerge in the next hours after a further vote, will be one of them. Just want to remind you that the winner will receive a special prize, a jersey of the Sampdoria Football (Soccer) team kindly offered by DP reader Francesco Grandi from Italy.

* The "Help the DP" Campaign: The Daily Peloton has launched a new campaign, named "Help the DP". We would be extremely grateful if you could have a look at the relaitve page, where you can find all the details , by clicking here or on the relative link located on the left side of the screen. There are no doubts about one thing: it's a matter of fact that this site WAS, IS and WILL ALWAYS BE a FREE-SITE, it's the passion for cycling that makes the DP adventure go ahead, and it will always do, but remember that you the readers can help the "Daily Peloton" to get even bigger and better, and provide the steadily-growing readership of the site with brand new services.

* The Fantasy TourWinners and Leaders List: And just as we were talking of brand new services ... here's one of them, once again related to the 2nd "Fabio's Fantasy Tour": a complete and detailed list of all Stage winners and Overall Leaders ("Virtual Yellow Jerseys") encompassing all stage held so far. The page will be regularly updated after the end of each "Fantasy Stage". To get access to the list, all you have to do is to click on the relative link at the bottom of this page, in the "Statistics and further Details" section.

Back to the Fantasy Game now.

2nd FABIO'S FANTASY TOUR ("FantaSTour 2002")

VIRTUAL TEAMS - STAGE 14 RESULTS: Canada 1 is Number One !!! A Canadian victory on Sunday's stage of the Fantasy Tour. Mo (Mauro) Brunetti and the "Canada 1" team got 79 points thanks to Lance & Richard (31 points each), Beloki (10) and Jalabert (6). But the "winning choice" was Ivan Gotti: the small point the Italian got due to his 10th placing at the top of the Ventoux (just head of Levi Leipheimer) proved decisive for the Fantasy Tour stage outcome.

Indeed "Canada 1" earned just one more point than both American Bill Swiontek (BS Cycling) and Troy Stabenow from Germany (Team Ventoux), who got a 78-points score thanks to the performances of Armstrong & Virenque, Beloki and ONCE-Eroski (6).

According to the tie-breaking rules, "BS Cycling" - which was posted before the other team - took second and "Team Ventoux" third. It was the second podium place in three days for the latter, but no victory yet for Stabenow. And with such a team name, a victory on Sunday's stage, finishing up to the top of the "Géant de Provence" would have been perfect. A pity it didn't happen, and for such a narrow margin !!!

So congratulations to Canadian (Italo-Canadian I guess) Brunetti, who gave Canada its first stage victory in this year's Fantasy Tour.

No team was unable to score points: the two worst-placed squads (both featuring Stuart O'Grady as "A" Category pick) got one.

As usual the tie-breaking rules were applied to the TOP 40 Virtual Teams only.

VIRTUAL TEAMS - OVERALL RANKING after STAGE 14: Did the Game find its "Lance Armstrong" at last ? So it seems !!! We have finally got a player who took the lead (in Saturday's stage) and could take it all the way to the finish. Actually Englishman Michael Barker from Lincolnshire had a further good performance on Sunday, as the man's "Don White Cyclists" earned him 66 more points (Armstrong 31, Basso 13, Beloki 10, Mancebo 6, USPS 6). And white such a strong line-up as the one you may see below, future looks bright for mr. Barker, who has now many chances to become the third European winner out of three Fabio's Fantasy Games in the 2002 season.

He is currently "chased" by a bunch of 5 American players, with the closest challenger now being the brand new runner-up: Geoff Pendry, whose "Pendry Racing" Virtual Team has never got a Top 3 place so far in any stage, and consequently hasn't been awarded any bonus point; nonetheless it managed to climb to second place as it often had execellent performances, just like on Sunday, when the Virtual Team got 59 precious points (coming from Armstrong, Beloki, Jaja, young Mancebo and Once-Eroski) that made it move up to second place.

But in spite of this, also Geoff Pendry lost further terrain (7 points) to current leader Mike Barker, so that it will be very very hard for him to have a better final placing than the Englishman.

Michael McQuillen ("Team Erie") kept his third place Overall, while former Overall Leader Joanna Hurley got 10 points only (Zabel 3, Gotti 1, ONCE 6) and dropped to fifth, now even behind Brannon Amtower.

Francesco Grandi was back into the TOP 10 places, while one of the main protagonists of the Fantasy Tour's first half, Australia's Mike Van Niekerk, is now out of them. Stage winner M. Brunetti ("Canada 1" Team) improved his ranking by moving up to 83rd place, but is no GC threat at all.

As to the "Lanterne Rouge", Reg Tubby remains at the bottom of the table, but now no less than 15 points down on the nearest player, Canadian (with an Armenian name) Andranik Aghazarian, while both Mark Vandenbergh and James Graham gained several points and moved up several places in Sunday stage.

That's all for the moment. Have a nice rest day and see you after Tuesday's Stage 15, which will be featuring another top mountain finish, this time at Les Deux Alpes.
