FANTASY SPRING: Amstel Gold race: Virtual Teams Results and GC

1st FABIO'S FANTASY SPRING: Race #5 -
"AMSTEL GOLD RACE"
- FINAL RESULTS

Finally it was an American domination !!! After 4 races marked by the stiff opposition by European (and Asian) contenders to the numerically overwhelming U.S. contingent, the "Virtual Amstel Gold Race" had an all-American TOP 5, and even TOP 9 if you regard Puertorican Josué Nazario (sixth place getter) as another American too.

The "Fantasy Amstel Gold Race" ended up in a "tight sprint" between two contenders: Chad Gagnier and David Rose. Both got the same number of points (146) thanks to the same riders: Bartoli (60), Boogerd (38), Van Petegem (24) and Bettini (18), plus the Rabobank trade team (6). But as we can't have two winners (and any tie in general), tie-break rules clearly state that, in case two or more players have the same number of points, coming from the same riders and Trade Teams, what really matters is WHEN you posted your "virtual team": the earlier, the better.

And as Mr. Gagnier chose his "Mr. Mom's Rough Riders" on Friday (while David Rose selected the "Rosie's riders" on Saturday), Chad Gagnier from the U.S.A. is the Winner of the "Fantasy Amstel Gold Race". Mr. Rose from NYC takes second, while the third podium spot goes to Terence Sexton ("Instant Fish") with 137 points (Bartoli, Boogerd, Van Petegem and Rabobank, but Sweden's Marcus Ljungqvist instead of Bettini).

Apart from Josué Nazario, the best non-American was a "newbie" of the game, Gus Windsock from the U.K. (whose team name was modified though, as rules forbid any kind of product advertising, direct or not ...) who got 114 points. But the best-placed among participants non-competing for the overall win was another American, Larry Parker, whose "Norwoogians" team earned 132 points, despite being among the few whose "A" rider (Museeuw) didn't score any point. But Mr. Parker also was the only one who selected the Fassa-Bortolo superteam, and got 30 points thanks to the combined effort of the boys in white in blue (plus 60 from Bartoli himself, while NOBODY had AGR runner-up Ivanov in his/her line-up).

As for personal, national or even continental "derby matches", Puertorican Josué Nazario beat Johnny Nazario, while Janna Trevisanut won (for the second time ina row) the clash against Vaughn Trevisanut by a 99-4 score, and John Driscoll had a better result than "bikemom" Judie. David Shylko was the best Canadian, while Andre Umali lost for the third consecutive time to Rajvinder Singh in the "all-Asian match". As for the German "krieg", just like in the "Best Team Name Award" (link at the bottom of the page) it was Friederich who did better than Moritz Mehlem.

According to the above scores, SEEMS that the OVERALL WINNER of the 1ST FABIO'S FANTASY SPRING is David Holm from Denmark, whose Team GIORGINO would beat Remo Kaasenbrood's "San Remo" - from the Netherlands - by an extremely narrow margin (4 points only), while today's runner-up David Rose would give the U.S. at least a podium spot in the Final Ranking, at the expense of Turkey's Rabun Kosar. But all these scores a results need to be checked once again.

No news yet about who's going to be the "unofficial Champion" of the "unofficial" ranking, that is the classification reserved to players not competing for the Fabio's Fantasy Spring Overall Ranking, and led by Britain's Alex Ball after LBL (but unfortunately he was the only one not to get any point in Amstel Gold Race, so it would hardly keep the lead until the end).

SEE YOU LATER with the FINAL OVERALL CLASSIFICATION of the 1st EDITION of "Fabio's Fantasy Spring".
