4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta - Virtual Teams: GC after Stage 2
 

If the 4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta ended after just two stages, two of the prizes (actually the biggest ones) would take the road to Sweden, because as many players from the Scandinavian country can be found at the top and the bottom of the field. Andreas Lindh is the new GC leader after Sunday's stage, while Tord Eriksson is in the last place, and since this game also claiming the Red Lantern spot overall at the end of the game earns the "winner" a prize.

Mr. Lindh snatched 13th in the stage, with a daily score of 54, courtesy of Zabel (25), Landis (17), and USPS (12 points of course). Much less than "LAbbås" gained in Saturday's opener, but enough for him to move to the top spot. Also because the first stage winner, Noah Summers, got just 29 stage points (Landis 17, US Postal 12). The very young (just 11!) gun from Canada retained a top 3 spot anyway, with a six-point lead over the other stage winner thus far in da game, Melissa Budd. Also due to the 25 bonus points Sunday's victory earned her, the Australian moved from 198th to third on GC. Same score as American Tim D. Hammer, but as "Mel's Boys" top scorer Petacchi has a better score than Hammer's Hammers top scorer Landis, the tie-breaking rules awarded the provisional podium spot to Budd.

Another protagonist of Sunday's stage, top 3 finisher Mark Vandenbergh, made his way into the top 10 overall. Better, top 6, as the bunch of sprinters our game's "VdB" picked lifted him up to spot number six, with a great score of 134. And six points behind Louise (Fink) Smith, who had solid performances in both opening stages, such as she's currently sitting in spot number five. Landis, Van Heeswijk, Zabriskie, Cruz and their Team USPS, as well as CSC and Saeco's, were Louise's scorers.

David Schimpf got 31 stage points (Landis 17 and USPS 12, plus one each from Isasi and Beltrán) and couldn't help but slipping down to seventh, with the same score as Vandenbergh, but not Petacchi as his team's top scorer. Three more Americans, all of whom with Floyd Landis, USPS and Team CSC in the roster, completed the top 10 places. Canada's Michael Cairns and Marcelino Abanto of the Philippines got out of the top 10, while stage runer-up Danny Pate made significant gains, moving up 226 places in just one day, but didn't suceeded in getting into the top 20 overall.

As for the Red Lantern, we already mentioned Tord Eriksson, whose only point came Saturday from the Cafés Baque Trade Team. But if "passa bollo" is going for the last-placed price, the Swede might find stiff opposition, with Andy McDobbin as main threat in this sense: after just two stages, "Lanterne Rougians III", aiming to repeat the result the Londoner got in the 2003 Vuelta, has only three teams behind. Whereas the 2002 Red Lantern "winner", Anita van Crey, off to a zero-point start Saturday, finally opened her account, with 25 points coming all the way from her compatriot van Heeswijk (8) plus Rabo-boy Oscar Freire (16) and Basque rider Iñaki Isasi (1).

Note - again: Caipirinha, Marlis1955, Werner1951, Sabrina1982, Pädäricco (Patrick), Rufs, Robert, Galen, JWMSales has to provide their full names and surnames by Wednesday night, or they'll be excluded from the game. So please mail us asap, thank you.
