4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta, Virtual Teams: Stage 10 Results
 

The green warriors of Comunitat Valenciana-Kelme "cycling institution" were back to their winning ways Monday, courtesy of Eladio Jiménez, who repeated victory in the same place (Xorret del Catí) that saw him raise his arms in triumph four years before. And so were Dutch players, who not just gave the Netherlands a well deserved success, courtesy of 71-point getter Willem Punt, after Martin de Vries claimed stage 5, but also got two men in the top 3 places for the second time.

Five days after William R. Driessen finished as runner-up to the above quoted de Vries, it was the turn of Herman van Iterson, a veteran of our Fantasy Games, a huge fan of Vicente Belda's boys not new to excellent results in our contests each time the Kelmes steal the show on the road, to get some bonus points. The "Green-Blue-White after 25 yrs the last Kelme-Fight" funny-named team snatched third, with his gap to the winner corresponding to Oscar Freire's daily score. Indeed whereas both Punt and van Iterson had Jiménez, 7-points scorer Valverde, and Kelme (actually the only team able to do better than USPS so far in any stage of the game) as Trade Team, the latter had not picked the only non-Kelme scorer, who proved the decisive factor in determining the stage outcome.

American Angelina Beers threaded her way in the all-Dutch fight, and got a well-deserved second place. Actually she was the only competitor with the top two riders in the stage ranking (Jiménez and O'Gardy) as part of her line-up, but unfortunately for "Bringing Up the Rear" no other rider/trade taems gave Angelina any more point, and this costed her stage victory.

With point from Stuey, Freire and Zabel, who got into the right breakwaway and surprisingly got better scores than many pure climbers in what was supposed to be a mountain stage, Dave Arnold got a likely unexpected score of 50, and came close to hit the top 3 again. In spot number five we could find another name often making the headlines recently, American Sara Selle, herself enjoying points from O'Grady and Zabel, and also seven from the latest King of the Mountains, José Miguel Elias, but with no Freire in her "Pedalling Pretty" team the U.S. girl couldn't make it into the top three places.

Vicente Pérez, stage winner as Valverde took line honors for Kelme exactly one week before, fared well again, with points from the same talented youngster and his trade team, as well as Oscar Freire. But Eladio Jiménez was not a member of the "Club ciclista Usabuaga", such that the top Spaniard in our contest had to be content with seventh place only: Pérez ended up eight points behind Bill Strachan (a top 10 finisher also a week before) and three points clear of Anita Derks, who maybe did better than she expected to in this stage, with points from O'Grady (25) and Saeco's Juan Fuentes (10), neither of whom was poised as top 10 finisher in Monday's leg.

But Willem Punt's stage win aside, the very big news of day was the top 10 result of both Andy McDobbin and Bridge Hunter. Yep, the two guys that battled it out for the last places throughout the early part of the Vuelta Fantástica, harvesting no more than 42 and 45 points respectively. And now, all of a sudden, they get 33 points each (!!!), all of them "courtesy" of Eladio Jiménez, whom curiously both the Londoner and the American picked. Whether those points were truly welcomed is a whole different matter, as even if they helped "Lanterne Rougians III" and "Puente" manage an excellent stage result, it could be a huge blow to their last-place prize winning ambitions. Fourty virtual teams had the stage score both Hunter and McDobbin were accustomed to (but didn't get this time).
