4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta - Virtual Teams: GC after Stage 5
 

In spite of her low daily score (just three points, two coming from Erik, Zabel the other one from Petacchi), Australia's Melissa Budd managed to save her overall leadership. Her past results were good enough for her to have a good margin over the rest of the field, and Andreas Lindh didn't have an extremely excellent score (just 26: Landis 12, USPS 12, Zabel 2) either, thus bringing the gap down to five points only, but not being able to nullify it. And even if most of them did fine also two days before, the "main stars" of stage 5 actually lacked regularity in these early legs, so their performances in the other three stages kept them from moving into the top 5.

Such that the only big news at the top of the GC is Tim D. Hammer's regaining spot number three. The American didn't have a great stage score either (in fact the same as Lindh's), but it was enough for him to kick another 3-point getter, Mark Vandenbergh, out of the provisional podium. One more thing worthy of mention is Noah Summer back to gaining some positions, as after going down and down and down in the last days the Fantasy Vuelta's first "Virtual Gold Jerseey" finally moved up three places into fifth.

Dean Della Pella made his way into the top 10. And so did Vicente Pérez, with the help of the (30) bonus points his top two top 3 finishes awarded the man, lifting him to place #7. With stage points from Aitor González, Landis, Sastre and USPS also Richard Dodge could get into the coveted top 10; Danny Pate, Todd Elenz and Leonard Trolio got out of it. Louise Smith and Mads Paulsen took different ways (the former slipped three places into ninth, the latter -with points from Valverde, Landis and Sastre- moved up into eighth overall) but both remained inside the top 10.

William Driessen, Chris Reed and stage winner Martin de Vries found a place in the top 20, although they are still far from the top. Harm Hanemaayer's good stage result made him gain close to 90 positions, but "The Visitors" didn't fare well in previous stages, such that the man is just 78th on GC. Nothing new in the "Red Lantern Zone", with neither Bridge Hunter nor Andy McDobbin gaining any points Wednesday.

Note - Please read : The exclusion of all players, among those who have been asked to (Caipirinha, Marlis1955, Werner1951, Sabrina1982, Pädäricco (Patrick), Rufs, Robert, Galen and JWMSales) who didn't provid the additional infos we requested, has been postopned by one day, as in one or two cases the situation is a bit unclear. But nonetheless all players who didn't provide their full names and surnames when repeatedly requested to, will be out of the game since Thursday's stage 6..
