Cyclocross Magazine’s Fantasy Cyclocross League Match fixing? Points shaving? This century’s Black Sox Scandal? You guessed it, looks like the creator and moderator of the CX Magazine UCI Fantasy Cyclocross league has assumed first place and all the wildly attractive accolades that come with it.

Anyway, all gloating aside, I’M IN FIRST PLACE BABY! That aughta make up for my lackluster performance this weekend in real life. So, as it stands, the leaderboard looks something like this: Bergen FK made the jump from fourth to first, leading the way with 1377 points. Picking up big points from Niels Albert (2nd, World Cup), Sven Nys (3rd, World Cup), Hanka Kupfernagel (1st, World Cup) and Tim Johnson (1st, 2nd, Toronto International, Bergen FK has opened up a 32 point lead over second place Team Lukas (Joseph Bruce, USA). A further 6 points adrift is My Wife Inc. (Mike Heenan, USA) who moved up from 7th to third. Last week’s leader, Java (Christian Skinner, USA), dropped into 6th place, 52 points behind.

The week’s big winner was French Death Pimps Dressed all in White (Chris Bagg, USA), who totaled a whopping 396 points for the week. FDPDW had Nys, Albert, Sven Vanthourenhout (5th, World Cup), Klaas Vantornout (9th, World Cup), Both Tim Johnson and Jeremy Powers (1st, 2nd, Toronto International), Kupfernagel, Katie Compton (2nd, World Cup), and Rebecca Wellons (3rd, 7th, Toronto International). Interestingly, two of the riders, Reza Hormes-Ravenstijn and Marianne Vos failed to score! Who knows what the total might have been had they been firing on all cylinders. Behind, FGC scored 359 points, followed by What’s This??? with 350 points.

Ah, the view from the top is mighty awesome.
