4th Fabio's Fantasy Tour: Riders - Prologue Results

The 91st Tour de France -and the 4th Fabio's Fantasy Tour, started with a (relative) surprise, as young gun Fabian Cancellara (he's just 23) stormed to his first ever Grand Tour win, and yellow jersey, by beating super-favorite Lance Armstrong and the rest of the field. The man from Bern - who, just like Damiano Cunego, was Junior World Champion in 1999 (he won the ITT, Cunego captured the Road Race)-, scored no less than 38 points, while reigning Champion Armstrong earned 25, that is a good score, espically if compared to what his main GC rivals, from Ullrich to Hamilton to Iban Mayo, got (e.g.: zero, zilch, nada).

A good result also for Spain's José Iván Gutiérrez, another World Champion in 1999 (he won the ITT in the Under23 Class), who snatched third in Liege, whereas Prologue specialist Brad McGee didn't get higher than fourth this time. And a good result also for 5th place finisher and 10-point getter Thor Hushovd, while also Americans Julich and Hincapie scored some points. Thanks to their wünderboy Cancellara, the mighty Fassa Bortolo stormed to the lead in the Trade Teams Ranking, with the Posties following. And here are all the first scores ...
