Half way through the peleton has splintered into four groups. The podium finishers are all but decided. But will it be Wolfmann1, great uncle bulgaria or Claude whos gets to keep the Jersey. Rik leads the 4th to 7th place group and Jo leads 8th to 11th. weetbicks is at the front of the last group on the road and Ryda has taken a 20point lead (deficit?) in the wooden spoon race.

Only one stage remaining and there is a scant 2 points separating first place and the first loser. As a reminder, no medals will be awared for 2nd place. After leading since stage 2, can wolffman1 hang on fro 1 more day?

Another great stage, Dennis did really well limiting his losses to Porte.

A good stage today, the first one I've been able to see since the People's Classic. It looks like it's coming down to the wire - will be a sprint finish, can the man with the hair do win a stage ( to go with his Classic's win)?

Is there anyone capable of beating Kittel mano a mano in the sprint?

Today's finish is on an uphill slope but it's not much of a slope. They won't be able to drop him anywhere on this course like they did on Friday.
I'm guessing they dropped him coming out of echunga. I rode the course on Friday with thousands of others, and it was a little steeper than I remembered, especially after 170km.

As I was coming down the finish straight they were still setting up the barricades which were from the 1km banner. There was a bus still coming down the road towards me. This young kid freaked out and drifted right into the handlebars of a woman over taking him. Crash down she went within sight of the finish line.
I helped her up and tried to get her bike straightened out but her front mech had somehow been twisted sideways so she ended up having to limp to the finish. Looking at the replay from Friday it was almost exactly the same spot the guys crashed, but they were probably doing 70 instead of 25km

A poor performance by team wolffman1 on the final stage drops them down to 3rd place. great uncle bulgaria and Claude move up the podium. They scored equal points today so their relative positions are unchanged and that means great uncle bulgaria gets to keep the ochre jersey. The only other rider to outperform a dart throwing monkey was Rik. Thank you for playing, the next scheduled vorb fantasy roadrace event will be Monuments spring classics but if anyone wants to play a fantasy tour of qatar/dubai, let me know

thanks again kev and everyone else. a nice low key start to the season, adds some interest to the race. I can't wait for the Monuments (I might even remember when they start and get a decent team in for MSR this year) but could be tempted by dubai etc if others were . . . . . .

Congratulation Great Uncle Bulgaria, you become the first person to hold a VFR jersey. The Ochre jersey is yours to add to your already impressive medal collection.
Claude gets the Silver and Wolffman1 the bronze medal to start their own collection.

With the medals handed out, I have to step off the podium now and skulk off, enviously looking up at you from my 4th place, well done guys.

I think the VFR monkey deserves an honorable mention for his efforts, and this raises the disturbing possibility for the future, should the monkey be allowed on the podium?

are you running this rik?I thought kev was? If i have thanked the wrong person my apologies - thanks rik.
I reckon the monkey should be allowed on the podium. the group shame of being beaten by the monkey on the podium should force us into getting our shit together :D

Think of it as a team effort. I do all the work and Rik hands out the medals to the winners. I'm not complaining, I enjoy being able to subtract a few points from Team Rik, before posting the results, so they get tantalizingly close to the podium but just fall short
