4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta - Virtual Teams: Stage 3 Results
 

A Spanish rider rocked the field in the actual Vuelta, and a Spanish player did the same in its Fantasy version. While Alejandro Valverde gave a further proof -as if it was needed- of his immense talent by crossing the line first at Soria, twenty FG contenders who picked him as their "A" rider enjoyed his (30) points and took all Top 20 places (Dean Della Pella took 21st and was the top-placed competitor with a different "A" rider).

And Spain's Vicente Pérez enjoyed many more points from riders doing well in the stage, from Menchov (16) to Freire (15). Add eight points from Valverde's Kelme, and you may easily realize with "Club Ciclista Usabiaga" got a well-earned success, with a stage score of 69, and a four-point margin over Holland's William R. Driessen, who had Valverde, Menchov and Freire too, and even four-point getter TerminAitor González, but lacked Trade Team points, and that's what prevented him from claiming stage victory.

The Kelme wonderboy and the classy Russian of Illes Balears were part also of Chris Reed's team, and the Brit had 15 points from Landis that perfectly made up for the lack of Oscar Freire; but one single, further point from Cadel Evans, compared to what the other got from either Kelme or Aitor, wasn't enough for Reed to take stage honors. But was enough for him to find a place in the Top 3 and get some bonus points, something another Spaniard, Galician Abraham Martínez González, got close to, but missed by just one point, as "los tibios" didn't get any help from outside the Valverde-Menchov-Freire trio.

Two players in the best four spots of Monday's ranking made for a great stage for Spanish contenders, but The Netherlands can't complain either: besides Driessen's second place finish, Dutch players can boast three more guys in the Top 10 spots: Martin de Vries, Peter Hoogervorst and Willem Punt. And the United States ? Leonard Trolio managed an excellent fifth place finish (with also two points from Damiano Cunego, who apparently lost his first "clash" with his Spanish counterpart Valverde, but this isn't much of surprise as the latter picked the Vuelta as one of his main season targets, while the former clearly said this race is mostly a tune-up race for his real objective, the Road World Champs in his home province of Verona), and Bill Strachan's VengaVenga -not to be confused with Chick Hudak's "Venga Venga"-, hit the Top 10 too, the latter even without Menchov in the line-up. But like it happened more than once in the past, Americans have to wait again before they can celebrate their first victory.

Valverde, Landis, Aitor and Cunego helped Lily Deora Trevisanut snatch 12th in the stage and continue the favorable tradition of the Trevisanuts in this game, especially that of their "young guns", as after Roman did well in Le Tour, also Lily is now doing better than both our "Site Goddess" Janna and Vaughn Trevisanut. Thomas Jensen and Kaspar Kristiansen helped Denmark continue its tradition of good results instead, with both players making their way to the Top 15 spots this time. Portugal -courtesy of Fantasy Game veteran José Pedro- and Australia -thank to Matthew Tognini- wrote their names in the Top 20 places too. Nine participants from six different countries didn't get any stage points Monday.
