Fantasy Fives: Vuelta a Espana Stage 9 RESULTS

A low scoring day for Fantasy Fives players, especially the Froome and Chaves backers! Finally, the GC boys get into action…

Two joint stage winners, and two different team combinations. CyclingHill profited from the Chaves and Woods partnership as Formidable Five also rode to an equaling five points with their Froome and Kelderman partnership.

Such low scores see both teams rocket up the GC, affirming higher places within the top 10!

Another strong day for Diemens Demons see them remain at the top of the pecking order whilst also increasing their lead in the stages classification; a successful day all round for Fantasy Fives newcomer, @Bartdevries.

For the breakaway classification, it’s still the Tour de France reigning champions, Renegade Masters clinging onto the top spot. With several other teams also on five points however, will they be able to carry this lead through the second week? Especially with the experienced breakaway artists of Break the Wheel and Cycling Crazy breathing down their necks.

A strong day in the mountains for the Usual Suspects now see them ride straight into the KOM jersey, 11 points to the good.

The people’s choice champion has changed! Thanks to an incredible ride from Chris Froome, a wealth of teams score in this classification after yesterday’s stage. Survivor now lead this competition, but with only two points, it isn’t exactly a commanding lead…

Right, time to have a look at those results!
