4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta - Virtual Teams: GC after Stage 6
 

Australians were at the top of almost everything Thursday. Dave Arnold claimed the stage and took one or more points out of all of his rivals in the Regularidad competition. And Melissa Budd held onto the lead in the Fantasy Vuelta's Overall Standings: with 53 points as daily gift from Oscar Freire and Erik Zabel, the "Mel's Boys" Virtual Team made it to the stage top 10 again, and extended the gap to runner-up Andreas Lindh (39-point getter this time- thanks to Zabel, Landis and USPS- in Thursday's leg) to a good 19 points.

The 25-point bonus awarded to Dave Arnold after his stage win made him gain 20 positions and took "muddle headed ones" all the way into spot number three on the GC, with a nine-point lead over Tim D. Hammer, who despite enjoying Rabobank's eight points (and those from Zabel, Landis and USPS) moved down one place, albeit "Hammer's Hammers" remains the top-placed US team, and the best-placed competitor thus far without points from its "A" rider.

Mark Vandenbergh follows a further point behind; with a help from Freire, Valverde and Menchov, Vicente Pérez ("Club Ciclista Usabiaga") of Spain moved up into sixth, while Noah Summers (whose stage score was just 17) got out of the Top 10. And so did Mads Paulsen, Louise Smith and Richard Dodge. Dean Della Pella slipped a few positions, but remained in the top 10 overall. On the "good news" side of the matter, Danny Pate went from 14th to 7th, and also 47-point getter Leonard Trolio (Freire 31, Valverde 4, USPS 12) got back into the top 10 spots. John D.Renz, William R. Driessen and especially Anna Martsisheuska, whose team is named after one of the main stars of the recent Olympics, made some significant gains. So did stage runner-up Jim Klepper, going from 39th to 14th, and third-place finisher Rick Beuttel, from 45th to 19th.

Also Holland's Anita van Crey, who started as "Lanterne Rouge" but is now in the Top 100, and her Belgian neighbour Céline Tytgadt improved their positions. Another writer of our site, Andy McDobbin, is still involved in the battle for the last-place prize: both "Lanterne Rougians III" and chief rival "Puente" didn't get any points this time either, such that Bridge Hunter held onto the last place, with a five-point "lead" on the Brit.

Note - Please read : Six of the players who were repeatedly asked to follow the game rules and provide their full names and surnames (Caipirinha, Marlis1955, Werner1951, Sabrina1982, Pädäricco (Patrick), and Rufs), unfortunately didn't, and were consequently excluded from the game. As for Galen and JWMSales, their situation is a bit unclear, such that at the moment they are still in the game, but one of them at least might be excluded soon too. Romania's Robert Dinca gave us all the additional infos he was asked to instead, and will continue playing.
