4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta Virtual Teams: GC after Stage 11
 

With stage winner Zabriskie, GC leader Landis and the mighty USPS providing him with plenty of points, that should be added to the 25 bonus points awarded due to his first win, Tim D. Hammer finally managed to move to the top spot.

His "Hammers" also opened a consistent gap (51 pts.) over Andreas Lindh, who got a devent stage score of 36 (thanks to Landis and USPS, Erik Zabel, and Aitor Pérez's first points) and maintained "his" second place overall for one more day, regardless of who's holding the "Virtual Gold Jersey". Although with plenty of uphill riding to come, and Mr. Roberto Heras as "A" rider, the Swede is well-entitled to aim for the Gold in the next stages. After two days in the lead David Schimpf (14 stage points from USPS, 8 from Landis) had to yield the jersey and dropped to third, with Melissa Budd, who found back many a good -and welcomed- points from her fast boys Petacchi, Freire and Zabel, just seven points away from regaining a top 3 spot.

The aforementioned sprinters delivered Mark "VdB" Vandenbergh 33 stage points, but the Belgian didn't gain any position, whereas David Arnold, 34-point getter on Tuesday, moved up one place into sixth. Chris Knox and ENT earned 23 points, but dropped two places, with also stage "bronze medallist" James Bass moving ahead of "ENT", and currently within striking distance of the top 5 spots on the GC. Louise Smith was pipped by Bass to the line in the sprint for third place in the stage ranking, but succeeded in getting into the top 10 overall. Richard Dodge and Dean Della Pella got 23 stage points and moved down two places (again) each.

Vicente Pérez didn't have a particularly outstanding score (11 points from Valverde, and 6 from his trade team, plus one "made in Freire" ones) and slipped five places into 17th. To the delight of Peter Hurley, not new to putting in some good performances in our Fantasy Games, and now up to spot number 13, with his latest points as a gift from Zabel, Aitor Pérez and US Postal. Hurley traded positions with another "young gun", Canada's Noah Summers, while Jim Klepper held onto his 14th place.

The remainder of the top 20 is mostly made of "usual suspects", although Anna Martisheuska and Leonard Trolio are now out, and were replaced by John D. Renz (his daily points were scored by Valverde, Zabel and USPS) and Mars Abantao, who made the most out of his excellent stage results and got back into the top places. Stage runner-up Carl Horton went from 45th 26th, but remains three ploaces and nine points down on Jody Horton (while Lily Trevisanut remains well ahead of both Janna and Vaughn Trevisanut). Sara Selle also made further gains.

After recent exploits by Bridge Hunter and Andy McDobbin shook things up at the bottom of the bunch, we had a more "stable" day in the battle for the last place prize, with none of the last 14 virtual teams gaining any points, and Australia's Chris Tunnock retaining the Red Lantern.
