Fantasy Vuelta/Virtual Teams: Points Competition-Results
 

OTHER RANKINGS - POINTS (Otras Clasificaciones - Puntos): Big surprise in the final stage !!! Alessio's Angelo Furlan ranked 4th in the Vuelta's Overall Ranking, got 2 points and unexpectedly provided Andrea Grandi with exactly what he needed to "outsprint" the four other main contenders and claim victory in this competition. Actually a little better result by Heras and Sevilla (the latter - once more - didn't have luck on his side, as he got technical diffs during the stage) in the final ITT would have been enough for Furlan to get knocked out of the Top 5 Places and miss the two decisive points, and consequently for main favorite Jim Robson to take the title.

But things took a different turn on Sunday and Andrea Grandi eventually managed to add this new success to his already impressive palmares also featuring 2 stage wins and 6 podium places in this Vuelta, plus 2 more victories in "Le Fantasy Tour". Andrea's strategy of picking many of the peloton's fastest wheels really pays off.

After keeping the leadership for most of the race, more precisely since stage four, Britain's Robson had to give it up in the final day, and was only runner-up (ranked second thanks to the tie-breaking rules, as he posted his Virtual Team before the others) ahead of two Americans.

Gran sorpresa en la etapa final: trás mantener el liderazgo en esta clasificación por casi tres semanas (es decir desde la cuarta etapa), el Británico Jim Robson finalmente la perdió en favor del italiano Andrea Grandi, el gran beneficiado de los dos puntos que su compatriota Angelo Furlan (Alessio) logró al colocarse cuarto en la clasificación final por puntos de la Vuelta. Dos puntitos que permitieron al equipo "Speedy Gonzabel" de ponerse por delante de "Bears on motorBikes" (segundo), "Ugandan Gold Miners" (tercero) y "Greenbelt Grimpeurs" (cuarto) y hacerse con otra prestigiosa victoria, trás los dos triunfos de etapa que el italiano consiguió en esta porra de la Vuelta, a los que hay que añadir cuatro más etapas en las quesubió al podio, y dos victorias también en la precedente porra del Tour de Francia. Parece que su táctica de escoger los mejores esprinters del pelotón, aunque no sea suficiente para ser primero de la general, ofrezca muy buenos resultados .
