IMPORTANT: The results of the "Best Team Name Award" contest and more details on the prize reserved to the winners will be online in the next hours - stay tuned !!!

IMPORTANTE: Los resultados del concurso "Best Team Name Award", premio al equipo con el nombre más divertido y original, serán publicados dentro de unas horas, así como los detalles acerca de los premios para los ganadores de este concurso y de la "Fantasy Vuelta".


"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - Stage Nineteen: First of all, let me thank Dan Steinbach for his kind words about this Game and the DP's Fantasy contests in general. Of course many other players said the same things, and we are thankful to them all, but mr. Steinbach deserves a particular mention as he wrote them ... in occasion of his first stage win (which he probably was still unaware of though ...).

So besides thanking him, the "Daily Peloton" also congratulates Dan Steinbach and his "Arriva Arriva Andale!" team, named after the words cartoon chraracter Speedy Gonzalez is used to say. As Steinbach himself correctly pointed out, with such a team name he should have also some guy named "González" in the roster, for instance a certain Aitor González. And no doubts that a Virtual team featuring also the Kelme rider along with the likes of Heras, Sevilla and most recent stage winners Santi Blanco and "Chente" García Acosta would be a serious GC threat. Unfortunately for him, Steinbach's "B Category" picks were disappointing Escartín and Tonkov, who didn't live up to expectations, such that "Arriva Arriva Andale!" will not be going for the Overall win.

But nonetheless the American can now enjoy a great stage victory, a "solo win", with 79 points and quite a wide margin over the rest of Friday's All-American podium (the second one in this Fantasy Vuelta): James K. ("Senior Surly's Spinners") and Terence Sexton ("Team Avarice"), both tied at 70 points, but with the former edging out the latter due to tie-breaking rules. Indeed James' top scorer of the day, García Acosta, got one more stage point than Sexton's Roberto Heras (30-29 is the score).

A small point that could have big impact on Sexton's overall result: being "Team Avarice" a serious GC contender in a hotly-disputed competition marked by very narrow margins among all top players, even 10 seemingly small bonus points could provide enormous help, and that was exactly the amount that missing the second place in the stage costed mr.Sexton. Perhaps those ten missing points will prove decisive factor in the final overall ranking, perhaps not. Time will tell. For the moment all we can do is congratulating this veteran of the DP's Fantasy Games on his series of good results that took him three time on a stage podium (once as winner, once as runner-up, now as third-placed). And of course congrats also to James K. on his first podium placing.

Britain's Andy Bamber, "main star" of the very early part of this game, missed his comeback on the podium by just one point. Good stage scores also for Todd Duso, Fantasy Tour protagonist Joanna Hurley, Chuck Taylor and more other (mainly American, although Poland's Janusz Soszynski was into the Top 15 too) players. US participants had a poor start, but seems they are now making up for lost time. An American overall win is not that easy anyway, especially due to the presence of Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi and "Ilbera": the strong Basque team got an excellent 19th place in Friday's "fantasy stage" and will easily keep the Overall lead, this time at least.

Nine players didn't get any stage points, while the tie-breaking rules, that may prove decisive in the game's final outcome, were applied to the Top 60 Virtual Teams as usual.

Gran victoria de etapa para el estadounidense Dan Steinbach, que el viernes obtuvo 79 puntos, nueve más que sus compatriotas James K. y Terence Sexton. El equipo de Steinbach (con Chente García Acosta, Sevilla y Roberto Heras, además del precedente ganador de etapa Santi Blanco) se llama "Arriva Arriva Andale!", nombre que se refiere a las famosas palabras del... dibujo animado Speedy González.

Con ese nombre sería natural tener en su equipo al "Speedy" González" del actual pelotón, es decir Aitor González Jiménez. Pero desgraciadamente para el, los ciclistas de Categoría "B" elijidos por Steinbach fueron otros: los decepcionantes Tonkov y Escartín, que no ofrecieron muchos puntos a su equipo. Fue una lástima para Steinbach, que con Aitor "Speedy" González hubiera podido ser uno del los mayores candidatos a quedarse con la victoria final. Por lo menos Steinbach consiguió un gran éxito en la etapa del Viernes.

Por lo que se refiere a ser el triunfador el próximo Domingo, hay otros candidatos norteamericanos, como el mismo Terence Sexton, que logró subir al podio por tercera vez (así ocupando las tres posiciones en diferentes etapas ...), y sacó cinco ulteriores puntos de bono. Que hubieran podido ser quince, ya que su "Team Avarice" empató en puntos (70) con "Senior Surly's Spinners", pero las normas específicas para el desempate dieron el segundo lugar en la etapa (y puntos de bono más que Sexton) a James K. ¿ Serán estos 10 puntos decisivos para la clasificación final de Sexton ? Ya veremos. Ahora mismo sólo hay que felicitar a Sexton. Y a Steinbach y James por supuesto, Y a Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi, que se colocó en un excelente décimo novena plaza en la etapa, y mantiene el liderazgo en la general.

Nueve participantes no sacaron ningún punto de etapa. Las reglas del desempate se aplicaron como de costumbre a los sesenta mejores equipos virtuales del día.

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

"2nd Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta" - GC after Stage Nineteen: After almost three weeks of competition, and with just two stages to go, nothing is yet decided. In what definitely is the most uncertain and hardly-fought DP's Fantasy Game ever, there are at least FIVE players still able to claim victory after the coming Sunday.

Overall leader Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi remains the favorite: the Basque got 57 more points (Heras 29, Sevilla 20, Petacchi 3, Kelme 5) on Friday and extended her lead to 19 points over the new runner-up, Kerry Whitman from the US, whose "Whitass racers" did slightly worse than "Ilbera (52 points, courtesy of Erik and Roberto, Petacchi and iBanesto) but better than Chris Boshart, who dropped to fourth, and Johnny Nazario, that retained third place.

But the margin separating "Whitass racers", from "BORICUA", and the Puerto Rican team from "Weezer's Wheelers" is just a small point, such that the outcome of Saturday's stage - the last one devoted to sprinters - could turn the GC upside down, and even take Whitman ("manager" of team featuring both Zabel and Petacchi) to the top spot. Sure you'd better not forget about Terence Sexton, the only top player with Beloki, Heras, and Aitor González, that partially bridged the gap on Friday thanks to his third placing (which I broadly talked about in the "stage report" above). With no great sprinters in the roster, he might not be that happy at Saturday's flat stage, but especially in case neither Zabel nor Petacchi should win the next leg, then Sunday could be the day for "Team Avarice".

Just outside the "fab five", both M. Kessler and B. Meehan lost one place, while David Cavalier remained eighth overall, and also Scott Bray kept his tenth place. Stage runner-up James K. (ranked 25th on Thursday) got into the Top 10 at the expense of Andrea Grandi. Chuck Taylor and Todd Duso gained a few places, while Herman van Iterson is back as Top Dutch contender. Friday's stage victory took Dan Steinbach from 73rd to 29th spot, right behind David Holm (who remains the best-placed Danish competitor) and ahead of the previous stage winner, Ernesto Ramirez.

A Top 10 player in the first week, Raymond Tiangco is no longer the best Filipino, with Andre Umali currently leading him by 5 points (the best-placed Asian is Lee Chyn Hwa, 60th overall with 581 points). Interesting "derby match" also between Galicia and nearby Portugal, with Abraham Martínez González ahead of Emanuel Correia by 2 points. The other Lusitan player, José Pedro, is further behind. The "Lanterne Rouge" ("Red lantern", or "Lanterna Rossa" in correct Italian) after Friday's leg couldn't be anyone else but Anita van Crey. The Dutch player, a Daily Peloton's writer too, got one more point, courtesy of iBanesto's Juan Antonio Flecha (currently third ranked in the actual Vuelta' s KOM Standings), but is still trailing far behind Slovenia's Primož F.

There are few doubts about who will be the last-placed in the final GC. But there's absolute uncertainty concerning the winner. According to my own humble predictions (just speculations anyway) Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi remains the number one favorite, with 30% of chances to grab final victory, followed by Terence Sexton (25 %), Johnny Nazario (20 %), Kerry Whitman (15 %), and Chris Boshart (10 %). The road will tell.

Saioa Arrizabalaga Juaristi aumentó su ventaja: la concursante de País Vasco logró 57 puntos en la etapa del viernes (Heras 29, Sevilla 20, Petacchi 3, Kelme 5), cinco más que "Whitass Racers" de Kerry Whitman, que actualmente ocupa el segundo lugar, 19 puntos por detrás de "Ilbera", y uno por delante de "BORICUA". Christopher Boshart y sus "Weezer's Wheelers" consiguieron 40 puntos, y bajaron del segundo al cuarto puesto, aunque están un sólo punto por detrás del Puertoriqueño Nazario, y a dos de Kerry Whitman. Terence Sexton, de cuyo tercer puesto en la etapa ya hemos hablado ampliamente antes, ascendió hasta la quinta posición, y ahora está mucho más cerca de los primeros. Si no va a perder mucho en la etapa del Sábado (apta para esprinters en las rutas de España, y para Kerry Whitman y Chris Boshart en este juego), con Roberto, Aitor y Beloki en su alineación "Team Avarice" pudiera hacer cosas muy muy buenas el Domingo.

Pocas novedades en el resto de la Top 10, con James K., segundo en la etapa, que substituyó al italiano Andrea Grandi en el noveno lugar. El ganador del viernes Dan Steinbach (EE.UU.) se colocó vigésimo-noveno, por delante de Ernesto Ramirez y del otro Puertoriqueño, Josué Nazario. El mejor Filipino ahora es Andre Umali, que se encuentra 5 puntos por delante de Raymond Tiangco, mientras más abajo hay un interesante "derbi" ibérico entre Galicia (Abraham Martínez González) y Portugal (Emanuel Correia). La holandesa Anita van Crey tiene siempre más posibilidades de llevarse el último puesto hasta el final.

OTHER RANKINGS - KOM (Otras Clasificaciones - Montaña): No problems for Keld Haagensen. After tomorrow's penultimate stage the Danish contender will get (mainly thanks to Roberto Heras' climbing skills) his third excellent result in as many participations in Fabio's Fantasy Games, following a second place overall in the Fantasy Giro and a "bronze medal" in Le Tour. Thanks to points from Simoni and Flecha, Anita van Crey is doing better here than in the Overall Standings.
