4th Fabio's Fantasy Tour: Riders - Stage 13 Results
 

The second Pyrenean stage had, more or less, the same protagonists as the first one. To begin with the "Three Kings" of this Tour, Lance Armstrong, Ivan Basso and ... Thomas Voeckler. After enjoying a fantastic leadout job by his überdomestiques Chechu and Azevedo (who got some stage poiints too, wow!!), and the other guys in his great squad, the American attacked on the way to Plateau de Beille, and only the CSC sensation could stay with him. Just like the day before, the two worked well together, and made it to the line. And if Basso crossed the line in front of Armstrong at La Mongie, this time it was the Texan that took the stage: 35 points for Lance, 22 for Ivan. And those who picked both of them on cloud nine.

But Armstrong will have to wait before grabbing "his" Yellow Jersey and flying towards his sixth straight TdF title. Indeed Voeckler, the other "hero" of this race, put in another gutsy performance and bravely fought to save his lead. He succeeded, by 22 seconds, to the delight of the French public. And not just them. Bravo Thomas! And a huge "Bravo!" also to the all those who chose him, and earned 13 more stage points from the small, big Alsatian, who's still unchallenged leader in the Best Young Rider competition too.

Unfortunately (for them) Saturday's stage had -more or less- the same protagonists on the negative side too. To start with Jan Ullrich: Ulle's goal was put a end to his streak of "silver medals". And it seem he's going to succeed. Only not the way he wanted to. The T-Mobile Team (former ?) leader got dropped once again and lost more than two minutes to the Basso-Armstrong duo. He finally managed a top 10 finish and scored his first points, but this would hardly be of any solace to him and his fans, especially those who picked Jan as their "A" rider.

Things got even worse for Tyler Hamilton: after hitting the deck a few stages ago, the American had his shoulder injured, then couldn't follow the best ones on Friday, and then packed his back and went home Saturday, with a resounding "zero" as Fantasy Game score. Iban Mayo got two points on Friday at least, but his performance on Saturday was an absolute no-show, with the Basque finishing close to 38' down on the top 2 riders, and even behind some sprinters, in what was supposed to be his own territory. He was about to pull out of the race Saturday, he might join Hamilton (and Haimar Zubeldia, another presumed "big name" that didn't live up to expectations) in the realm of DNFs in stages to come. The "top of the flops" continues with Roberto Heras, another "big gun" that didn't have a good day (and is not having a good Tour either), and lost more than 20' to Lance and Ivan. He's still waiting for his first points.

Back to the "good" ones with Andreas Klöden, Francisco Mancebo and Christophe Moreau (who's now second to Virenque in the KOM zone) who did well again, and got some precious points. Gibo Simoni, still far from the condition he was enjoying when he dominated the 2001 and 2003 Giros, was not partciularly good, although he managed a top 10 finish, and gave his fans a small small small point, while fellow countryman Caucchioli snatched two. Robbie held onto the green jersey both in the race and game, while USPS fought off the first attack from Team CSC, but Ivan Basso's powerhouse is likely to take the lead in the game too in the coming stages.
