Fantasy Fives: Vuelta a Espana Stage 13 RESULTS

A great day of Fantasy Fives for those teams still crammed with a wealth of sprinters, bad news for those lacking a fast man in their roster…

A winning combination of Trentin and Nibali make SAP La Mondiale stage 13 winners!

Very few teams managed to score in the single digits yesterday, many actually scoring way above fifty as they saw their place in the GC tumble. One of the biggest losers of the day was Toms Skuijns’ Bazinga National Team, dropping from 4th to 9th place in just one day.

Azkonarra Tomatea continue their strong run of form and close in on the podium positions. Another win for Trentin now gives them a commanding lead in the stage classification on 34 points. Only SAP La Mondiale are anywhere close on 33; but with Nibali expected to do well on today’s stage, can Azkonarra further their lead in green tonight?

Two main players in the GC continue to wage war over the KOM classification. Both are on 15 points but with Paddy’s Pedallers wearing the coveted leader’s jersey, the honour of spots will befall the Bazinga National Team on today’s stage.

After a disastorous start to this Vuelta, which their team DS assures ‘was the plan all along…’, Feeling Fraile now take leadership of the break classification, 9 points to the good! With Villella, De Gendt, Dunne and Sanchez in their side, they’re bound to add more points to their tally today…

BREAKING NEWS: Analysis of the team selections have uncovered a few rule violations from a number of teams, these will be highlighted on Twitter later tonight and a doping sanction will be served…

Right, time to have a look at those results!
