    ^^^There should be plenty of room-there’s only like four of us in there now, and I don’t think there’s a limit on competitors in a league

    Yes, unlimited amount of space.
    I don't think there is a password to sign up. If it asks you for password, post again and I'll figure it out. It's probably "TGR" or "Mags".

    Yup, the days when first week was all flat sprints and echelons seem long gone.

    Now it’s climbing from the jump, which favors sprinters like van Aert and Pedersen. Guys like Cav & Jakobsen will be questioning their career decisions.

    on paper that jumbo team is potentially capable of riding with UAE -- not sure how the season's injuries will be reflected if at all in their legs
    we'll soon see -- stage one looks to be crazy




    i think magnus sort just got me pregnant just seeing a pic with that stache

    Vingo said he’s not riding La Vuelta due to family stuff.

    Not following your comment about “Kuss dropped when he did”

    He was “ill” and not performing well. We’re told he pulled out to start his recovery for the tour instead of finishing. I’m suggesting perhaps vingo maybe got greenlighted from the medicos and that meant team prep shit to do

    Just speculation

    Kuss was performing poorly from the jump in Dauphine and DNS last stage. Said he had a virus. I did see him in a couple of VLB social media shots from altitude camp in Tignes.

    Will see but UAE looks unstoppable

    There is a password and neither of those works. Any others? I think it's listed somewhere...

    Also, it appears that the league works different than fantasy football where only one team gets "Tom Brady". Multiple teams can have Pog, right?

    I know Dee shared the basics above but still looking to understand it better (because I can't tell what is platform specific). Is this an accurate article for the "official" platform we're using? https://velo.outsideonline.com/news/...-fantasy-team/

    Edit: it looks like Dee covered it well, I guess I'm just surprised I can't find the rules/scoring of the league on the website? Maybe I'm just used to the infrastructure of Fantasy Football.

    Try searching (yeah, I know…) for the 2022 and 2023 TDF threads. PSW is likely in the first couple of posts

    And yes, many people can draft the same rider. But no, we don’t use the Velogames platform

    The rules for the Tissot platform are pretty well laid out on leTour website.

    Rules are at the very bottom right corner. Yes, everyone could pick the same riders. That article is a good lesson.

    I think all the Teams are pretty much decided, and the game has everybody loaded in there. Even if a team makes a last minute rider change, you can change your guys as much as you need to before the race starts. Remember you have to have a full team 8 to get points. You cant your whole budget on just 5 superstars and leave 3 spots blank. (someone did this last year on day one).
    Mrs DeeHubbs and I have a calendar meeting scheduled for Wednesday to discuss our picks.
    Who's in? I'll make a list with TGR names vs Fantasy names so we know who we are playing against.
    Shall we discuss the $ amount? I'm good with what ever we decide.
