    The Tour will start this weekend, and I was wondering if there is interest in doing the game we've done in the past couple of years. Basicly, as it is so late, it would be the same model we worked out 2 years ago. However, this year, I don't think I can organise the entire game as I did in previous years. So, I could work out on a proposal for the riders stats (their price in Touros) from the startlist at cycling4all.com, and then if some enthusiastic soul could step forward to do the maintainence during the Tour (classification updates and such) it would be really nice.
    What say you?

    The rules are as follows:

    - Everyone, even if they don't know what the hell we're talking about is more than welcome to take part in it.

    - From the list of riders in the post above, choose 9 (no more, no less, 9 riders it shall be) and take notice that each rider has their price in Touros in front. Prices go from 5 to 105 and you can only spend a maximum of 200 touros in total in building your team. Aside from the budget you have to buy the cyclers there are no other limitations in building your fantasy team, you can pick as many from one team as you want.

    - Pick also one of the teams in the list below as your bet to win the Teams Time Trial. This one costs nothing.

    - The pointing system is as follows:

    5 points for each stage winners (that means that if you have a rider in your team that wins a stage you'll score 5 points), 3 an 1 point for 2nd and 3rd each stage respectively

    5 points for the team that wins the Teams Time Trial, 3 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd as above

    3 points for a day with the yellow jersey

    2 points for a day with the green and polka dot jersey

    1 point for a day with the white jersey

    8 points for who wins the green jersey and polka dot (mountains) jersey in Paris

    3 points for the final white jersey

    2 points for the most comabative rider in the end

    Points from 1st to 10th in the General Classification in the end in the following pattern: 20-15-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1

    If a rider that is in this list and it turns out that he won't ride the Tour, you can switch him if you have chosen him, but only before the Tour starts. If a rider abandons during the race, you can't replace him, but you will keep the points he won you.

    NOTE: You must submit a team before the Tour starts, ie, before saturday early afternoon (GMT)!

    I will join for sure and I might be able to help with keeping track of the scores but it would be nice to have an additional guy for that as I might be busy occasionally.

    Ok, my situation would be similar. Maybe we could join forces, as we're members of both sites we'll be running this? :)

    of course I will make a team, but I go on vacation next week so I can't help keeping the score, sorry.

    It's easy to see that you're a recently married man. :p In a few years you're gonna spend your vacations at home drinking beer, watching the Tour and saying yeah, yeah to the wife's complaining. ;)

    :lol: :lol: you're right.


    that would be the thing I would actually love to do and did in the past (well, not exactly my vacation, but you get the picture ;) )

    Instead we go to Serbia where my wife stems from, visiting relatives ... :cry: (well, it is quite a nice place in the summer and cheap for us, so I shouldn't be so mad)
