4th Fabio's Fantasy Tour: Riders - Stage 15 Results
 

The "Tour de Lance" kicked off at last, on French roads as well as in the Game. Putting in one of the excellent performances he got us accustomed to each time the road (seriously) tilts upwards, Armstrong clinched his second stage win in the current Grande Boucle, and at the same time captured the yellow mantle. Add a second place behind "Polka Dot Jersey Serial Wearer" Virenque in the KOM competition, and you may easily realize why the man had a stage score of 41, the best one a rider has gotten thus far in the (2004) game.

But his stage victory was not that easy, as he could account for key rivals Ivan Basso, Jan Ullrich and Andreas Klöden only in the very last metres of the 180.5-km. journey into Villard-de-Lans ("Villard-de-Lance"). One more time he was given stiff opposition from the Varesino, that reamains the only real threat to Armstrong's quest for six: Another second place finish, plus the runner-spot overall he moved into, earned young a promising Ivan a good 25 points.

After his lousy performances over the Pyrenees, Jan Ullrich finally reacted like a champion, and after putting in a wicked attack that forced Lance's and Ivan's super-domestiques (some of which even gained a few stages points, kudos to Azevedo, Sastre and Voigt!) to chase hard in order to bring him back, And even after he was reeled in, "Ulle" managed to stay with Armstrong until the line, finally bringing home 16 points, which his fans and all those who picked him would definitely welcome. And so did fellow T-Mobile Team talent Andreas Klöden, that lost a few secs only in the final sprint, but moved into third overall and added 15 points to his tally.

Two Rabo-boys had a great stage and got their first points: Levi Leipheimer stayed with the "Fab Four" for most of the final climb, and eventuall snatched fifth (10 pts for him), while "serial escapee" Michael Rasmussen got into a break again, and this earned him a Top 3 spot in the Mountains competition, but also managed a Top 10 finish, such that all virtual teams featuring the former MTB star may now enjoy 7 more points.

Nothing new in Green Jersey territory, with McEwen, Zabel and Hushovd as "usual" daily scorers, while despite surrendering, as fully predictable, the GC lead to Armstrong, Thomas Voeckler kept the Best Young Rider White mantle, and five stage points for his fans. As for the Trade Teams, USPS got a record score of 14 and held onto the lead in the game, while Team CSC regained the top spot in the Tour de France Teams competition, thus earning six stage points here. And as for dropouts, the tour has got three riders less: while Domina Vacanze lost Paolo Valoti, CSC's Jakob Piil Storm didn't start the stage either. And the same occurred to Iban Mayo, a presumed big threat to Armstrong on paper, but then things took a completely different turn when on the road; and today the Basque decided to put a end to his Tour de France calvary.
