Fantasy Fives: Vuelta a Espana Stage 8 RESULTS

A massive day for the Fantasy Fives GC, Beefeater Bend finally toppled at the top! A duo of perfect scorers make this one of the most successful days so far in this race, there will surely be a lot of happy players after today’s results…

Alaphilippe and Polanc the perfect partnership for today’s stage, lucky for @bartdvries and @Cycling_CrazyDAD…

After leading the race for the majority of this first week, Beefeater Bend have finally been toppled at the top. A high score of 50 see them tumble down the GC, eventually coming to rest in 5th place, now 33 points off the red jersey.

Taking their place at the top of the standings is Diemen Demons, a Fantasy Fives newbie that has been consistently scoring throughout the entirety of this first week. A one two today also see them shoot up the stage classification, a jersey still held by Beefeater Bend…

With the Beefeaters off the podium, room has been made for a few newcomers, Paddy’s Pedallers and Tom Skujins side, Bazinga National Team, now rounding out the first three steps.

With Majka taking today’s Cat 1 climb, several teams have advanced in the KOM competition, Weird Buddhist Viking now leading this competition on a grand total of 10 points.

After victory in the Tour de France Fantasy Fives, @Ironsscally’s Renegade Masters will now have to settle for the lead in the combative classification. With many teams equal on points, can they hold onto this classification into the first rest day?

Right, time to have a look at those much anticipated results!
