4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta. Virtual Teams: Stage 12 Results
 

The conspicuoUs Norwegian contingent in the game finally got a first, well-earned stage success. Courtesy of one of the veterans of our Fantasy Cycling contests, Georg Reidarsen whose "Team Ture" soloed the victory in pure Roberto Heras style, with a 15-point lead over the stage runner-up. Roberto's record score of 51, as well as points from Mancebo (third place finisher at the Observatorio Meteorológico de Calar Alto, but second in the game's "virtual" stage), Zabel, Sastre and Liberty Seguros gave him the win over American Marianne Werz O'Brien, who came close to repeat the sensational performance she put in three stages before, in the other difficult mountain leg, won by Piepoli from Heras -and by Marianne herself from Philipp Paier-, and got a great score of 76, Unfortunately for her the points from Nozal (10) and Sastre (1) couldn't match Mancebo's and Zabel's contributions to Reidarsen's victory.

The Netherlands climbed a stage podium one more time, now with Cyrille Pluijmen, who got points from Heras and his blue-clad Trade Team, as well as Zabel, but also benefitted from Luis Pérez's first top 10 performance in this Tour of Spain. "No Chain" was pipped by Marianne's "muchachos" by a 3 points, but edged out Bob Kristin by four. A top ten finisher for the second straight day, the "Bobarians" team manager got his best result thus far in the game, with most of his based on points from Heras and Liberty Seguros; Stefano Garzelli's four points were certainly welcomed, but not enough for him to match the Pérez-Zabel combination.

Other players, whose names you can see in the complete stage results below, hardly in the limelight before, had some glory at last as they hit the other top 10 spots. All of them with Heras and Liberty Seguros as "A" rider and Trade team respectively, but very few points from the rest of their line-ups. Alonso Tejeda snatched 14th in the stage and was the best-placed contender with a different team than Heras' Liberty Seguros (actually Kelme). Marcelino Abantao had another good result, as he managed to make it into the top 15 despite no points from any of his Trade Teams. The best Heras-less finisher was Scotland's Alisdair Cook, a top 3 finisher as Piepoli beat Heras 3 stages before, and now able to place 19th, with points from Heras' chief rivals Mancebo and Valverde, but also Roberto's own trade team.

More than 40 Fantasy Vuelta contenders, and among them James Bass, didn't get any stage points. After dominating the previous "virtual stage" Tim D. Hammer earned just 2 points (from Erik Zabel), while Carlos Sastre's mere point prevented another top player, David Schimpf, from having "zero" as stage score.
