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

The first Wednesday of Le Tour is the day traditionally reserved for Trade Teams to steal the show both on the road and in the game. The very long (64.5 km,) Team Time Trial from Cambrai to Arras was dominated by the USPS squad, that also got Lance Armstrong back in yellow. Such that the American team added no less than 55 points to their tally (45 of which came from their stage victory, 5 from Armstrong's yellow jersey, and the rest from their leadership in the Trade Team Standings), and impressively increased their lead in the game's Trade Team Ranking.

A dozen more Trade Teams, from the runners-up at Phonak Hearing Systems to the 1-point getters at Domina Vacanze, got their first TdF points, while Cancellara's Fassa Bortolo and McEwen's Lotto-Domo didn't add anything new to their previous scores instead.

USPS' victory didn't have such an impact in the Riders Ranking anyway, as Lance Armstrong didn't get more than the 8 points usually reserved for the Maillot Jaune wearer, while Robbie McEwen, still leading the TdF Points Competition, earned half a dozen points, and took his tally to 92, thus extending his advantage to Cancellara (who lost both the White Jersey -to Germany's Matthias Kessler- and his top 3 spot overall, consequently getting no points this time) and Hushovd to 21. The Australian also took the lead in the Fantasy Game's "Points Ranking", while Paolo Bettini is the unchallenged "King of the Mountains" both in the real Tour and here.

First points for the aforementioned Kessler as well as Floyd Landis, now sitting in third place overall. One more rider is out of the race: France's Eddy Seigneur, who lost contact to his RAGT Semences teammates early in the TTT, and didn't make the time cut.
