    Following the Giro Fantasy league and the CC mini league which was set up, I thought I'd get in early with this one as I know a few people missed out last time cos they missed registering a team before the start.

    So, although the site is not operational with lists as yet, here's the link:

    After my miserable showing at the Giro, I'm confident of coming good in the big one. Or not.

    I will need to get the thinking cap on again for this one but after the effort in the Giro I don't have high hopes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I still haven't forgiven Soler.

    This one will be MUCH easier though, eh? ;)

    Hmm, I will have to have a long hard think about this, study all the teams and riders, the course, the weather forecasts and the competition on here. And hope I get really, really lucky again.

    I suppose my half-baked idea about keeping the same riders as in the Giro has been dumped?

    I'm up for that - second email address always comes in handy!

    But who do I swap Contador for?!?

    ah, sorry Will. Bad luck. We all reached a consensus that the giro league winner has no place in the tdf league, on the basis of "nobody likes a smartypants".

    Better luck next year!

    ;p

    Soler is off training at altitude in Colombia for the TdeF so make sure you pick him for your team he is going to be flying up those mountains.





    Sneaks off to look at other climber options.

    That's the provisional Noodley's No-hopers Le Tour team picked.

    You're all in trouble :becool::ohmy:

    Latest announcement:

    "Entries for the Velogames Fantasy Tour de France will go live on the evening of Tuesday 1st July. This enables the official rider list to be loaded into the game, as some teams still have not declared their final squads."

    And I have changed the No-hopers line up. Now you'd better be really afraid..

    Does the site work out my scores for my riders for me, or do I have to log on each evening to up-date my team (if I enter, which I might)?

    Scoring looks like it could be complicated and I do not really want to spend half of each evening updating scores, when I could will be watching highlights on ITV.

    Presumably I have to name the team, or is it called Team Speicher?
    I am new to all this but it looks like fun, and I have a few days to cogitate over who is in My Team.

    Is there anything else I need to know before I try to enter a team.
    Do I need a password. It is very complicated to enter?

    No. Once you've picked your team you just log on to see how badly you're doing. Well, I do anyway!

    Someone clever will set up a mini league for the CC ers and tell us the password, I hope:biggrin:

    I'll sort that, if there's no objections, as I need to do one for work anyway.
