4th Fabio's Fantasy Vuelta. Virtual Teams: Stage 14 Results
 

If Saturday's hilly stage on the roads of Andalucía was dominated by Spaniards, its Fantasy Vuelta version turned into an all-Norwegian festival. With ten virtual teams competing (and one unfortunately disqualifed) the Vuelta Fantástica contingent from the Scandinavian country was more consistent than in other Fabios Fantasy Games (a very pleasant surprise indeed). Hence came more good results: Georg Reidarsen was stage winner a couple days ago, then made the top 5 in stage 13, and just scored a hat-trick of excellent performances by taking second, with 67 points.

The only player able to do better on Saturday was a fellow Norse: Morten Hansen, whose funnily named (btw - the "Best Team Name Award" results will be online later this week) "Team I-Stole-This-Bike-Let-Me-Through" earned three more points, and the stage victory. Quite curiously the two teams had just one scorer in common: eight-point getter Carlos Sastre. As for the rest, Hansen's score was mainly a product of stage result-based points, from the 30 Santi Pérez, finally back to giving us a display of his huge talent, awarded him, to the points coming from Valverde's second place finish. Reidarsen's score was predomintantly based on the positions of his riders and the trade team in the overall and other classifications instead. And that explains the huge gap between the two guys in the Fantasy Vuelta GC, and the fact Reidarsen is an overall contender whereas Hansen (at the moment at least) isn't. Gratulerer to both, anyway!

There was some American flavour in the stage top 3, courtesy of Cheryl Coughlin, 61-points scorer thanks to Erik Zabel and a wild bunch of Spaniards, containing also the other "scoring Pérez", Luís. Mrs. Coughlin edged out Cyrille Pluijmen by a three-point margin, and prevented "No Chain" (who got points from the same Luis Pérez, Heras and his trade team, Erik Zabel and Leonardo "Flying Trullo" Piepoli, but neither Valverde nor Isidro Nozal) from getting back into the top 3 spots.

Canadian Scott Price made his way into a stage top 5: with Valverde and Santi Pérez he could have done even better, but the very small support from the rest of his "pirates", (just 4 points from Piepoli) kept Price from climbing the podium. One more outstanding result for Marianne Werz O'Brien; after winning a stage and being runners-up once, her "muchachos" hit the top 10 again. She got the same score (55) as "Fassa Pippolo" and Mark David Chapman's "Luz Ardiden", but got a better result than both the Austrian and the Englishman, obviously due to the tie-breaking rules: Marianne's stage top scorer Heras got more points than Pippo and Mark's Valverde. At his turn "Fassa Pippolo" had Mancebo (21) as second best top scorer, while Mark had "only" Luis Pérez (16).

Alisdair Cook staged another pleasant comeback to the top 10 spots, while Luis Pérez, Valverde, Sastre and Cárdenas where the "amazing technicolor cyclists" who (with the addition of Liberty Seguros's six points) took Andre Umali of the Philippines, a true veteran of our fantasy cycling contests, back into a stage top ten. Ryder Brooke's 12th place finish made Norway's triumph even more complete, while another FG veteran, Keld Haagensen, as well as the only contender from Panama, Lionel Herrera (top 3 finisher in a Fantasy Tour stage two months ago) had a good result too. Unfortunately the same thing can't be said of twenty virtual teams (some of them seen in the top spots overall earlier in the game) who didn't harvest any stage points at all.
