  • RECRUITER’s CUP Stefano Mandressi Cobra Libre with 2 teams (although we have to praise also Giacome Salmoriaghi who invited his mother)

Beat the monkey

THe monkey keeps making history: a random team was able to win one of the most prestigious jerseys arriving last general classification

The Golden Monkey (random pick within the top 30 riders in terms of preferences) was as expected in mid-high classification in 19th , getting very close to win some stages

  • Beat the monkey – Pink Elena Mauro Elena’s team + 197 points
  • Beat the monkey – Mountains Loris Favarato American White + 15 points

Some stats

  • 46 teams (plus 2 monkeys)
  • 11 Rookies – new generations growing
  • 17 different teams won a stage (some won by multiple teams)
  • The suboptimal team would have scored 1437 points. the winner scored 1288. Quite a good pick
  • Gap between first and second team is only 0 points (with the winner flipping the game on the last stage as often happens). Third team at 8 points and 4th at 12 points
  • 19 teams scored at least 1 point in every single stage
  • 1 team scored points on only 13 stages (Rita Visonà barcollo ma non mollo) and surprisingly won a stage and was not the black Jersey (34th of 48)
  • 30 teams (inlcuding the monkey) won a stage in the mountains classification
  • 1 team (only) ended the giro with all 15 riders Remko Kampert De derailleurkes
