Fantasy Vuelta - VIRTUAL TEAMS: Stage 1 Results
 

"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - Stage One: "FAST ANDY" IS THE FIRST WINNER. While usually winning a Fantasy Cycling Game is a matter of points and skills (you pick the right guys, they got plenty of points, you win ...), the victory in Saturday's opening stage became ... a matter of time.

Indeed, no less than 36 players made the best possible choices, by selecting both ONCE-Eroski and Cofidis, and got 32 points. As a consequence, in order to know who the first stage winner is I had to resort to the tie-breaking rules, and more precisely to the rule stating " ... the tie will be broken according to THE TIME OF ENTRY of your VIRTUAL team. (The earlier you sent it, the better ...)".

So this time, just like in real cycling race, it's the fastest that wins. And the fastest in picking ONCE and Cofidis was Britain's Andy Bamber ("Bamber's Bombers"), who posted his Virtual Team early on Thursday morning (UK time), about twelve minutes before New Zealand's John Lee.

The kiwi is not new to "fast starts" as he won a stage, and was Overall leader for one day, in the very early part of the Fantasy Tour in July. This time he came close to repeat his stage victory, while also Raymond Tiangco of The Philippines was near to get the win he was (and presumably still is ...) hoping for. The "My Legs Look Better Than Yours" (funny name, a serious contender for the "Best Team Name Award" whose winner will be decided in the next days) Virtual Team took third in the stage, as it was sent about 20 minutes after "Bamber's Bombers".

Great debut for the first Polish competitor in Fabio's Fantasy Games, as Tomasz Brodala took fourth, while the first Fantasy Game winner, Holland's Jan Dijkstra, is back to ancient glory with an excellent 5th placing. The best-placed American (US players once more weren't off to such a great start, as none of them was in the TOP 5 places) was Gregg Bray who chose ONCE-Eroski as his "A" Trade Team despite naming his Virtual squad "Posties4Ever". A positive start also for another debutant, Israel's Ido Schnitzer, that was eighth in the stage.

Fantasy Tour's winner Mike Barker got the highest possible number of points, but wasn't as fast as fellow countryman Andy Bamber, and took "only" eleventh. Not a bad start at all for him, anyway. Definitely better than Fantasy Vuelta's defending champion, Jonathan Podmore from California, who dominated last year's edition, but on Saturday got just 16 points and is currently ranking 216th.

But the Vuelta has just begun, and mr. Podmore will have all the time to make up for his relatively poor start. The same for the 4 unlucky contenders that weren't able to get a single point after the opening TTT. Among them no less than two "legendary" Daily Peloton writers: Holland's Anita Van Crey (who will also play with 8 riders only for choosing nonstarter Ratti without including a reserve ...) and Englishman Mick Knapton that, due to posting his team only right before the deadline, is the first "Virtual Lanterne rouge" (or it Spanish counterpart ...) of the Vuelta.

As for the GC, Andy Bamber went on a "solo breakaway" thanks to the 30 Bonus Points he got for his stage win. Runner-up John Lee got half of the that bonus, and is now 15 points behind the leader, while Raymond Tiangco gained 5 Bonus Points. But the "chasing peloton" is not so distant (there are several players with 32 points, even more with 27 points, and even more again with 25 points) such that Sunday's stage 2 and its likely final sprint could immediately reshape the Ranking.

Andy Bamber de Gran Bretaña fue el primer ganador de etapa de la porra. 36 Equipos Virtuales consiguieron el mismo número de puntos (32), todos ellos gracias a ONCE-Eroski y Cofidis. Ya que en situaciones similares las reglas del desempate dicen claramente que el ganador es el que envió su equipo antes de los demás, Mr. Bamber y sus "Bamber's Bombers" se hicieron con la victoria y los 30 puntos de Bono en la Clasificación General. Andy Bamber comunicó su alineación en la manaña del Jueves (hora inglesa), doce minutos antes de que lo hiciera John Lee, que obtuvo els egundo lugar de la etapa, mientras Raymond Tiangco de las Filipinas fue tercero. El ganador de la porra del Tour (Mike Barker) fue undécimo, y el campeón de la Vuelta del año pasado (Jonathan Podmore de EE.UU.) solo obtuvo 16 puntos en la etapa del Sábado. Pero cuatro equipos hicieron hasta peor ya que se quedaron sin ganar ni un solo puntito.

IMPORTANT: Two players (Johan Koedijker and "JDG") have been temporarily admitted in the game, but they will be disqualified unless they comply with the following BY NO LATER THAN THURSDAY:

:1: Johan Koedijker has to communicate to the Daily Peloton a new team name, as the previous one didn't meet the rules.

2) The "mysterious" player "JDG" from the Basque Country has to communicate his/her own name, as neither nicknames nor the name initials are admitted, sorry. Thanks.

IMPORTANTE: Dos concursantes, y entre ellos "JDG" de Euzkadi, fueron temporaneamente admitidos en el juego, pero JDG tiene que comunicar al "Daily Peloton" su proprio nombre (ya que ni sobrenombres ni tampoco las iniciales son acceptados) DENTRO del JUEVES o su equipo será descalificado.
