Much disruption is around at the moment. We have lost Strade Bianche and next weeks first monument Milan - San Remo.

However Paris- Nice one week event goes ahead and starts on Sunday deadline 09:30. Velogames starts up again and League details remain the same as in opening post.

After a 5 month break we are almost back with a new competition called the Superclassico. It is basically a 6 man squad game with you choosing 6 riders for every 1 day race for the next few months starting August 1st with Strade Bianchi. 100 credits budget across the 6 riders.

https://www.velogames.com

League Code remains the same - as above for new entrants.

Thanks for this. Bit out of date with the racing to be honest but might give this a go. Must remember to record the race as well. Best race of the season outside Holy Week

You should have seen my initial pricing before some scenario testing - the top of the list was 4-6 credits higher than it is now :twisted: .

I'm hoping with the pricing (as it is now) and with points down to 30th place (a not-insignificant change), that there's valid tactic to go with either 2 big guns, or to spread out further to get 3-4 decent (ie top 10 in the betting) shots at the podium, while still maintaining the need to pick at least 1 or 2 wise choices from the lower values (which is basically a big philosophy/"USP" of Velogames right from the start).

I also needed to consider that some of the lesser races (or those which overlap a Grand Tour) could well have a much more relaxed budget where its difficult to use up all 100 credits even if you want to.

Anyway, thanks for still playing after all these years, I especially like the recording of historic results :D

Apologies as I prefer to watch rather than go Fantasy.... Could this suffer from the heat too?

(I'm not sure suffer is the right word for the race as opposed to cyclists.)

Awesome race and winner. SB must be less bad in Spring ie chalk stuff must be a lil damp...

How worried is Sagan? 😂

Missed Poland but put a team in for the Dauphine.
Also spotted that Birdsong had dropped out and swapped him out in time for the start

Was Fuglsang ever in the lists for the Dauphine? He was listed in the Gran Piemonte start list then taken out.

Result of the CdD and a win for Just a Kiwi from Slh1969. Sadly there is no Velogames for the Tour de France. The next Velogames is the Tirenno in September. We will run the Road CC still for the Tour and at least one other fantasy game.
