Fantasy Vuelta - Virtual Teams: Stage 15 Results & Rankings
 

"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - Stage Fifteen: AN ALL-AMERICAN PODIUM AT LAST !!!!: The best day for USPS on Spanish roads corresponded to the best day for US contenders in this "Fantasy Vuelta". It took more than two weeks, but finally Americans succeeded in occupying all podium places in a stage classification.

The three brave players that made it possible (obviously all of them with Roberto Heras in the roster) were Terence Sexton, Brannon Amtower and Ernesto Ramirez. Sexton, a veteran of the DP's Fantasy Games, got 94 points by having all three main protagonists of Sunday's leg (Heras, Beloki, Aitor González) along with Kelme as "A" category Trade Team. It's the first victory for "Team Avarice", that was runner-up 5 stages before anyway. Just another example of the "unwritten rule" stating that before winning a stage you have to pass through a second placing ... It happened to Herman van Iterson, it happened to Scott Owens, and it just happened to Sexton himself.

A more successful Trade Team (USPS - providing 15 stage points) wasn't enough for another Fantasy Game veteran, Brannon Amtower, who made his debut one year ago in the 2001 Fantasy Vuelta (and never missed a game since then). Casagrande and Simoni couldn't match Sexton's Basque riders, and "Agony Awaits" finished behind "Team Avarice" by 2 points only.

Third place getter was a Fantasy Game debutant: Ernesto Ramirez, who got 87 points. It was the same score as Javier (second excellent result in as many stages for the Basque player), but the tie-breaking rules - once more applied to the Top 60 squads - spoke in favor of the American: both had Roberto Heras as top-scorer, but "Cyclos" also features a Trade Team (US Postal Service of course) scoring points on Sunday.

More U.S. competitors had an excellent result; besides Javier, only the presence of Andy Bamber and Jan Dijkstra (both were back to a good stage scoring) avoided and all-American Top 10. Slovenia's Peter Trkman, stage winner in last year's Vuelta, finished just outside the Top 10 instead. With many of the biggest names in the peloton picking up several points on the Angliru, no wonder that plenty of teams got high scores in Sunday's "virtual stage". But two players didn't get any points at all.

Por primera vez en esta edición, los concursantes de EE.UU. ocuparon los tres primeros puestos en una etapa. Con Heras, Beloki y Aitor González, además del equipo Kelme, Terence Sexton obtuvo 94 puntos y ganó la etapa al lograr dos puntos más que otro "veterano" del los juegos del Daily Peloton, Brannon Amtower. Ernesto Ramirez ocupó la tercera plaza por delante de Javier. El norteamericano y el vasco consigiueron los mismos puntos (87), pero las reglas del desempate favorecieron al primero, que también se hizo con los cinco puntos de bono para la General. Sin embargo este fue otro buen resultado, el segundo consecutivo, para Javier. Otro participante de Euzkadi, es decir Josu, se quedó trigésimo-quinto en la etapa, dos puntos por delante de lo que fue su gran rival en la porra del Tour de Francia, el Portugues José Pedro. Sólo dos equipos se quedaron sin puntos de etapa. Como siempre las reglas del desempate se aplicaron a los primeros sesenta clasificados.

And now to the detailed Stage Results / Y ahora a los resultados de la etapa ...

"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - GC after Stage Fifteen: The first round of Saoia Arrizabalaga's final challenge to Johnny Nazario's leadership took place on Sunday. Thanks to Roberto Heras outstanding performance on the Angliru, and some more points from both Kelme and surprising Fabian Jeker, the player from Euzkadi (the Basque Country of Spain) was able to shorten part of the gap between her and the Puertorican.

But things weren't that bad for "BORICUA", which still keeps a comfortable lead (56 points) over "Ilbera". Indeed Oscar Sevilla got 5 points only, and couldn't be much of help to Saiola Arrizabalaga Juaristi, whereas Aitor González and, to a lesser extent, Gilberto Simoni had decent rides on La Gamonal an helped mr. Nazario to limit the point loss.

Britain's Jim Robson, playing with only 7 riders since the Fantasy Vuelta started, stayed on the podium as long as he could, but in the end he dropped out, as he lost two places in a single stage: the second place to Saioa Arrizabalaga, the third to Chris Boshart. Albeit he lost a few points to "Ilbera" the American contender and his "Weezer's Wheelers" finally succeeded in climbing the podium. With only Heras as GC contender, his chanches of winning the game are quite slim, but nonetheless he's currently leading fourth-ranked Robson by a good 28-point margin, and might realistically retain his podium place in stages to come.

Beatrice Meehan not only got back into the Top 10, but even moved up to 5th, four points ahead of fellow American Kerry Whitman. Martin Kessler too gained some places, whereas Italy's best player Andrea Grandi lost four, but managed to keep himself into the Top 10 Overall. Things didn't go better to David Holm, who dropped to 13th place, while it's now a proven fact that winning a stage takes you to the edge of the Top 10, but not inside. It happened on Saturday to Martin Kessler, it happened on Sunday to Terence Sexton.

If you look down in the ranking, you may notice that Michael Haywood remains the best Canadian, and Peter Budd the most highly placed Aussie. You may also find a tight competition between two Israeli players, with Ido Schnitzer slightly leading Ehud Tal, and two more "derby matches": the first one between Dutchmen Stefam Meijvogel and Jan Dijkstra (tied at 347 points) the second between Canadians Adriana Diaz and Juan Pablo Villate (another tie, now at 300 points). The tie-breaking rules ruled in favor of Meijvogel and Villate respectively.

Looking even more down, you'll see there is no U.S. contender in the last 5 places, while nobody seems able to steal the "Lanterne Rouge" to Anita van Crey, who - despite the presence of Gilberto Simoni in her line-up, even "strengthened" her last placing on Sunday.

Principalmente gracias a la gran actuación de Roberto Heras en La Gamonal, Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi ascendió al segundo puesto de la general, y ahora se encuentra un poco más cerca del líder Johnny Nazario. Si embargo el Puertoriqueño, cuyo equipo se defendió muy bien en la etapa del domingo gracias a Aitor González y Gilberto Simoni, sigue teniendo una amplia ventaja (56 puntos) sobre "Ilbera". El Británico Kim Robson perdió dos plazas y bajó del podio. Los beneficiados fueron Arrizabalaga y también Chris Boshart, ya que el estadounidense ahora está en el tercer lugar, nada menos que veintiseis puntos por arriba de "Bears on motorBikes". Buenas noticias para Beatrice Meehan y Kerry Whitman que ganaron unas plazas. El ganador de etapa Terence Sexton ocupa el undécimo lugar, mientras que Josué Nazario está vigésimoprimero. Gilberto Simoni no pudo: Anita Van Crey y sus "cloggeleros" continúan ocupando la última posición de la tabla.
