Fantasy Vuelta - Virtual Teams: Stage 12 Results & Rankings
 

"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - Stage Twelve: A GERMAN OUTSPRINTS AN ITALIAN!!! Well, in the Fantasy Vuelta at least. While in the actual race Erik Zabel has always found an Italian (bee him Cipo or Petacchi) faster than him, in the cyber-version things went differently.

Here the part of Zabel is paradoxically played by ... an Italian (Andrea Grandi), that started to link his virtual team to the German sprinter right when he chose its name ("speedy gonzabel" that is ...) and then kept following Zabel's steps even in his performances: many excellent placings, more than one time on the stage podium, but no victories yet.

Even more paradoxically, on Thursday Andrea Grandi was "outsprinted" by a German contender, Matthias Kessler, whose "Real Sociedad" squad got 77 points (with the decisive ones coming from Italian sprinters !!) and gave Germany - for the second time, after Matthias Juenemann's triumph some days before - the win they are still waiting for in the real competition. Congrats to Kessler, and best wishes to Andrea Grandi, maybe he (and Zabel) will take their coveted stage victory in the next days.

Behind Germany and Italy came the USA, as Kerry Withman ("Whitass Racers") preventied the steadily improving Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi from climbing to a stage podium for the second time in this contest. Jim Robson was finally back to a Top 10 place, while Johnny Nazario must not be complaining too much: the Puertorican was 17th, and put 49 points in store, certainly things to be glad of.

There was a curious draw between the two Meehans: both scored 65 points on Thursday, although tie-breaking rules spoke in favor of Michael T. as he posted his team a few seconds before Beatrice did. But this draw is nothing compared to the record set by 87 Virtual Teams, all of getting the same score (six points) !!! And this was an absolute, real draw, as the tie-breaking rules were applied to the Top 60 players in the stage ranking only. Those 87 contenders surely had a better results than 24 other players, unable to get points on Thursday's twelfth leg.

Segunda victoria Alemana en esta "Fantasy Vuelta", primera para Matthias Kessler y su equipo "Real Sociedad". Kessler "vengó" a Erik Zabel, segundo en la etapa de la Vuelta del Jueves, al derrotar por dos puntos (77-75) al italiano Andrea Grandi, Tercero fue el norteamericano Kerry Whitman, mientras que Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi se quedó afuera del podio por sólo tres puntos. Muy buen resultado para Johnny Nazario también: "Boricua" fue decimoséptimo en la etapa, y almacenó 49 puntos más. Su hermano Josué tampoco se puede quejar, ya que consiguió un positivo trigésimo-sexto puesto en el Jueves. "Espectacular" empate a seis puntos: 87 equipo obtuvieron el mismo puntuaje, ya que las reglas del desempate no fueron aplicadas a ellas, sino que sólo a los sesenta mejores equipos de la clasificación del día. Más de 20 concursantes se quedaron sin puntos de etapa.

"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - GC after Stage Twelve: Puerto Rican Johnny Nazario is more leader than ever: once again he had the stage winner (Alessandro Petacchi in this case) in his line-up, and once again he added a good many points to his Overall Score, which now amounts to 577. Not bad at all I would say.

Sixty-five points behind him there's the "new" runner-up, who actually is not new to the highest places in the Overall Standings: Jim Robson changed the negative trend which had marked his two previous stages and moved up one place. The Briton is now second Overall, with a 6-point margin on Remo Kaasenbrood.

Good news also for another protagonist of the Fantasy Vuelta's first half: Chris Edin moved up to fourth and is now closer to regain the podium. As a consequence another Chris (Boshart) lost one place and dropped to fifth. Among the day's biggest winners certainly there is Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi; after a further good performance her "Ilbera" team finally got into the Top 10.

The sprinters' good scores on Thursday helped David Holm and stage runner-up Andrea Grandi to move back into the Top Ten places, while winner Matthias Kessler ascended to the 40th spot in the GC. But in a better situation than him is Johannes Heuser, who gained one more place and is currently ranked ninth. As for the "match of the Meehans", Michael and Beatrice got the same score in the stage, such that the latter remained ahead of the former by the narrowest of margins. No news at the bottom of the ranking, with Daily Peloton's writer Anita van Crey still in the last place.

Cada día que pasa Johnny Nazario refuerza su candidatura a ser el ganador final de la porra: otra vez el Puertoriqueño tenía el ganador de etapa (en esta ocasión Alessandro Petacchi del Fassa Bortolo) en su equipo, y otra vez obtuvo una excelente cantidad de puntos (33 de Petacchi, 10 de Aitor González Jiménez y 6 de Simoni). "BORICUA" es más líder que nunca, ahora con una ventaja de 65 puntos sobre Jim Robson que reconquistó la segunda plaza, mientras Remo Kaasenbrood se queda tercero, y sólo ocho puntos por delante de Chris Edin. Un buen día también para Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi: "Ilbera" fue cuarto en la etapa, pero sobre todo consiguió ponerse entre los diez primeros equipos de la General. Josué Nazario, hermano de Johnny, ocupa un excelente vigésimo segundo lugar, mientras que el Filipino Raymond Tiangco, uno de los mayores protagonistas en la primera semana del juego, está ahora bastante lejos de la Top 10. Nada nuevo en la cola del pelotón, con la holandesa Anita van Crey y sus "cloggeleros" una vez más sin huir del último lugar.

OTHER RANKINGS - POINTS (Otras Clasificaciones - Puntos): With Zabel, Cipo and Petacchi in the roster, the leading quintet is simply unstoppable. On Thursday they even widened the gap on the 9 chasers lacking the Fassa Bortolo's stage winner. Halfway through the Vuelta, it seems very unlikely that anybody may steal the lead from Jim Robson, now the main favorite to take the final win (thanks to the tie-breaking rules).
