Despite protests that the race may be 1 stage too long Richie_D hangs on to the overall victory and gets to keep the Red jersey until next year. Buds kept him honest and made sure Richie_D didn't start celebrating too soon. weetbicks claims 3rd spot but must be asking, "What if I had picked Degenkolb for the final stage"

Not so close for all of us! Although I was enjoying my duel with slidecontrol and NzidaR.

Thanks to all those who took part. I am pleased the final result was uncertain until the last stage.
We'll be back next year for the Tour Down Under. Hopefully by then I'll have a more reliable source for the bonus points and I think I'll impose a cap on the value of some riders. There is no way Valverde is worth almost twice as much as Aru or Quintana

The laughing bunch was fun, take that monkey! (Monkey might have done better if it had picked a new stage winner though.

Thanks again Kev for handling it all, and well done Richie for hanging on. Was good to be at the top for a good spell early on, but my team took a beating later on & the numbers told.

But at least we can all say "we spanked the (VFR) monkey" :o

Thanks Kev for organising another great event, I always enjoy them - even if I did crash on the final sprint!

Dang, that was hard work (made doubly hard by changing time zones mid-race).
Thanks all. See you for TDU

Thanks Kev, great job again :thumbsup:

Didn't see any video footage of the race this year but was another engaging Vuelta from a cyclingnews.com perspective, and of course the side order of VFR entertainment :D
Reasonably happy with my 11/15 position given I didn't do any stage picks, suspect I would have only ended up midpack even with them, and (due to my personality type) found it much less stressful playing 'silently' :rolleyes:

Wonder what a chart would look like of vorber against VFR finishing positions now there's been a fair few competitions, who would be the VFR champion..?
