Fantasy Tour - Virtual Teams : Stage 17 Results & GC
 
Fabio's note - BEST TEAM NAME AWARD : The "Daily Peloton" Jury has finally made a decision and chosen the fuunniest and/or most original Virtual Team name for the Fantasy Tour. The winner, whose identity will be unveiled tomorrow, wins a jersey of the Sampdoria football team, offered by DP reader (and Fantasy Game player) Francesco Grandi from Italy. So keep your fingers crossed until tomorrow.

Back to the "Fantasy Tour action" now.

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

VIRTUAL TEAMS - STAGE 17 RESULTS: In the Fantasy Tour there's glory for almost all English-speaking country. In the last week in particular as, after England, Canada, Australia and the U.S., Thursday was time for New Zealand to become the fifth winning country out of 5 days.

Indeed Buds Fuller is the second Kiwi stage winner in this Fantasy Tour, after John Lee claimed leg 2 of the contest. "Team Buds" got 59 points (Frigo 30, Moncoutié13, Armstrong 10, ONCE-Eroski 6), one more than Connecticut's Phil Siena (Frigo 30, Moncoutie 13, ONCE-Eroski 6, Basso 5, Zabel 3, Sastre 1) and five more than Stage 10 winner Merlin Morris (Frigo 30, Armstrong 10, Tacconi Sport 8, ONCE 6).

Janna Trevisanut had another good result (she finished in the stage TOP 5 for the third time) but once more missed a stage victory. Good performance also for "Tour-mania", the squad of the only Romanian player, Dan Suciu, that was eighth in the stage classification and will probably improve his poor Overall Ranking. A decent score also for "lanterne rouge" Reg Tubby. 2001 Fantasy Vuelta winner (will he keep the tiel this year ?) Jonathan Podmore ranked eleventh. As for the main overall contenders, both Mike Barker and Geoff Pendry got 29 points. No team was unable to score points.

This Time the tie-breaking rules were applied to the TOP 50 Virtual Teams.

VIRTUAL TEAMS - OVERALL RANKING after STAGE 17: The day that didn't change anything !!!: After so many emotions and changes in the Overall Ranking during the past days, finally a "quiet" stage, so quiet that ALL TOP 8 Teams kept their position in the ranking. And, even more important, that the 2-point gap between "Don White Cyclists" and "Pendry Racing" remained unchanged: indeed both Mike Barker and Geoff Pendry added 29 points (although some of them came from different riders) to their overall score, and put 5 on third-placed Brannon Amtower. Also Tim Kenington gained 29 points on Thursday, and is now just 4 points down to "All American Value Meal".

As a consequence, the greatest news of the day seems to be Janna Trevisanut's presence in the TOP 10. The "Site_Goddess" of the Daily Peloton is still lacking a stage victory but, one placing after another, she has finally found a spot in the Top 10 Overall, at the expense of Phil Miano, that dropped to eleventh place. Stage winner Buds Fuller moved up to 34th, while Phil Siena is currently 29th and Merlin Morris is 17th.

Besides the battles for the final win and the podium places, there are other interesting clashes down in the ranking. Just like the "all-Hiberian" challenge between Josu and Pedro Martins, with the Basque finally leading the Portuguese by 5 points. Or the battle for the best-placed "kiwi", with Paul Peacock that, despite not being able to win a stage yet, is leading by six points over Buds Fuller.

Or, deep down in the ranking, the clash among 4 Germans (Thomas, Holger Nuernberg, Friedrich and Moritz Mehlem) guys, all of them part of the bunch of firends of the "Cycling4Fans" website, and all of them now in a 18-point gap.

And don't forget the battle for (not being) the "Lanterne rouge", with Reg Tubby still at the bottom of the table, but now "only" 15 points behind American Chris Kumnick. So there's a UK vs. US clash both at the top and the bottom of the GC.

That's all for the moment, see you for the Stage 18 results, hoping that Friday's leg might have a broader impact on the Overall Ranking than Thursday's.
