And now to the Virtual Team (better: Tandem) Results for the Elite Women's ITT


2nd "Fabio's Fantasy World Championships" (October 9th,13th 2002) - EWITT: RESULTS The pair worked well together. Words that could perfectly represent the performance of both American Michael Tierney and Britain's Jim Robson. The former got 112 points (Zabirova 50, Brandli 40, Arndt 12, Zijlaard - Van Moorsel 10), the latter earned 113 (picked up here and there: Brandli 40, Somarriba 27, R. Polikeviciute 15, Arndt 12, Ruano 8, Neben 1, Switzerland 10) and the duo won the opening leg of the Fantasy Worlds with a record score of 225 points (plus 30 bonus points to add in the GC). Jim Robson is not new to a flying start: in the Fantasy Vuelta's first week the Brit won two stages in a row, and retained the Overall leadership for as many days (not to mention the lead in the Points competition, which he kept for several stages and lost to Andrea Grandi only in the ultimate day). On MotorBikes, or on vacation, Jim's Bears always rock !! Especially with the help of such a good teammate

Another contender that really rocked in Wednesday's part of this game was Jakob Duma. The Danish contestant was the individual Top Scorer with no less than 147 points, courtesy of ALL THREE riders who got onto the Zolder podium, namely Zoubirova (50 Points) Brandli (40) and Thürig (32), plus Arndt (12), van Moorsel (10) GJ (2) and Amber Neben (1). Also thanks to a more than decent support from teammate (65 points), the Danish-German pair ranked second in the leg. Both players are accomplished Fantasy Game contenders, and could be serious candidates to the final win.

Defending champions Joe Coughlin and Mike Norris (the latter with a stunning score of 136 points)were off to a great start too. Unlike last year, when they ranked last in the opening leg, before beginning their climb to the top of the ranking, this time they immediately climbed onto the podium by taking the "virtual bronze medal" in the EWITT. In 2001 they stormed to victory after a very poor start. So how far can they go now, after having such an excellent opening leg ???

Just outside the podium places is the unusual Asian-American duo made up of Singapore's Rajvinder Singh and USA's Tommie Brock (stage winner in the recent Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta). The Daily Peloton's Belgian correspondent Céline Tytgadt (in these days she will be at Zolder to watch the event live on the spot) found a funny name for her team: "Appologies in advance to my teammate". But with such a good score as Wednesday's (103 points) she should be happy of her result rather than apologizing.

Chad Gagnier and Charles Henry are the first "red lanterns" of this game with just 23 points in store. But nothing is lost: one year ago their place after the opening EWITT was occupied by Norris and Coughlin, and you know how it all ended. There are so many points at stake in the coming races, and there's room for the two Americans to follow the steps of their fellow countrymen.

Hopefully a detailed list of all teams and line-ups (for all races but Sunday's EMRR) will be online tomorrow. As for the game's final leg, two players have not yet posted their line up for the race, while another sent an incomplete roster. They can post their full teams for Sunday's race before Saturday's deadline (see the GAME RULES page for details)
