    2019 TDF Fantasy Game (with Spoiler Alerts)

    2 weeks to the Grand Depart.

    I thought the Tour's game was pretty fun last year with the option to switch riders and name a captain for each stage. It doesn't look like Velogames is doing a TDF this year so this is probably our only option. I expect the Tour's game to be active shortly when the entries are made official and I'll set up our group.

    edit: Group Info:

    https://fantasy.letour.fr/

    League Name: TGR Maggots
    PW: GAX

    $10 per team?

    Allez!!!!

    So I guess I jumped the gun on this a little...

    Still waiting for the Le Tour game to open, I'm assuming it will once the start lists are finalized, whenever that's supposed to be.

    Almost all teams have been confirmed. The only exception is EF, they have listed some riders but not the full roster yet.
    I really hope they get this site up and going. It would be a shame if Le Tour bullied out the Velogames guys and give up after the first year.

    Iím in

    Note the riders list is way wrong. Examples - they list Degenkolb and Cavendish as starting, when neither are on their team squads.

    There's a warning at the top of the main page that says this is the case. I had initially selected Pierre LaTour but while doing some research found out he's been left off the start list this year.

    Definitely need to review your selections before Saturday morning

    Bump for one last reminder that the entry deadline is 12:00 on 7/6. Not sure what time zone that is so if you're interested now's better than later.

    TEAM EC
    TBS - TBS
    FUCK THE ASO. LONG LIVE VELOGAMES
    KAT5

    A recommendation to read the rules and scoring methods. I do not recall being able to swap out riders last year.

    You can change the time zone to your local time zone in your personal profile settings. That way you will have an accurate cut off time for your changes and Road Captain assignment.
    Deadline is 04:00 Mountain Time on 7/6.

    You could but only on the 2 rest days. If you recall I was a little pissed because you could add a rider mid-race and if you did you got all his bonus points at end, not just the ones that he earned while on your team. For example, if you had GT for the whole tour and I picked him up on a rest day we both got the same bonus points for having him at the end and I don't think that's changed.

    Looks like they've the changed the replacement system this year, apparently you can use "credits' to get new riders although not exactly sure how to get the credits. If anybody figures it out let me know.
