A Dominant Tour de France Performance

Yes, Sam Ledbetter with his Road Hogs team, under the direction of Lester Moran, ran away with the JBarCycling Minileague honors by amassing an impressive 7210 points. That also put the Road Hogs at 163rd out of 42,166 contestants worldwide. That's in the top .4%.

Our podium was rounded out by Alez' BB#1 with 6395 points, closely followed Moffeed's Derpola with 6369.
 Moffeed, aka Drew Moffitt, rose from the ashes of last year's Tour in which he bounced around DFL for quite some time.

On the whole, our league made a very respectable showing. Perhaps next year, I'll have more time and energy to devote to begging for prizes and promoting the league.  

Thanks to everyone who played. I have been approached by quite a few folks who just missed the cut-off for team registration but who, nonetheless, asked me to keep up the league. 
So....be watching for news of the Vuelta.

Oh, yeah, the OTHER winner....
Congratulations to Chris Froome on his third TdF win. There were even a couple of stages where he demonstrated some excited and determined racing, though the last week of the GC race was boringly predictable. Nobody could attack Sky, and the few weak efforts often resulted in the attacker losing time as Sky caught and passed them with their relentless team strength.
