    Do futile attacks count the same as futile breakaways? If so there is this piece on Quintana from Cycling Weekly on the Tour de San Luis...

    The five-foot-six climber, winner of the 2014 Giro d’Italia and second to Sky’s Chris Froome in the 2013 Tour de France, lost 56 seconds to Diaz when the road climbed up the sun-drenched slopes. He held on for the initial accelerations, launched two of his own attacks and drifted behind in the final four. The classification sheet showed him fourth overall at 1-23 minutes.

    Two 'futile' attacks at 1000 points each I think! (Worth a try at any rate).
