Title: Tour de France fantasy $20,000 major prize
Post by: tom_scully on July 01, 2010, 08:55:54 PM
Is your SC or DT season over? Sick of the "beautiful game"? Then time for the TDF fantasy comp to take over :

I've joined RaboDirect Fantasy The Tour de France competition at
http://sbs.com.au/tdf/fantasy (http://sbs.com.au/tdf/fantasy)

and I bet that my team, festina, will beat any team you can put together!

I challenge you to join my mini-league.  Go to http://sbs.com.au/tdf/fantasy (http://sbs.com.au/tdf/fantasy) and pick your team, then use the ‘mini-league admin' option to join my mini-league.

The details you need are:
League Name:fanfooty
League password:robbiem

It's not hard and it doesn't cost anything – plus there are some great prizes to win, so unless you're afraid of getting beaten I'm looking forward to seeing you in my league soon!

I've joined, shame it wasn't about 4 years back when I really followed the tour and knew all the riders. I'm quite out of touch now!

Team name is as usual ... The Brown Trousers. Though in hindsight should have been The Brown Lycra.

Same here,
But just loving all the sport at the moment - wimbledon, TDF, world cup, footy back in full swing. Awesome winter this year.
I will shout you all a beer when I win the 20K

Yeah.

Who is everyone backing for Stage 2??
Title: Re: Tour de France fantasy $20,000 major prize
Post by: Fletch74 on July 05, 2010, 11:15:27 AM
Sprinter's stage. It will be the usuals there again. Stage 3 will be the interesting one with the cobblestones
Title: Re: Tour de France fantasy $20,000 major prize
Post by: reesbr on July 05, 2010, 11:21:44 AM
yeah plenty of crashes.

The question is though, will the sprinters still be up there after the 5 hills before the sprint??
Title: Re: Tour de France fantasy $20,000 major prize
Post by: Fletch74 on July 05, 2010, 11:26:46 AM
They will. They're small mountains. No moves will be made amongst the GC riders tonight. A breakaway is more likely. Hopefully riders like Lloyd or Gerrans from AUS will be out front contending for the Polka Dot Guersey.

Not sure if anyone is still following this thread, but I am a keen follower of the TdF and my team in the TdF fantasy is currently in the overall top 20.
Shame that Ive only just joined FanFooty and I wasn't here to join in the fun in your league. You can check the top 20 teams on the homepage -
http://tdf.sbs.com.au/tdf2010/fantasy
Last time I checked I was coming 17th, after being as high as 6th.
Where are you guys coming in the overall comp?
Title: Re: Tour de France fantasy $20,000 major prize

Well done Bazinga, my team is Yoda's Padawans and i'm coming about 1000th odd. I have double points tonight so should move up a bit. Well done on your effort, lets hope you can go for the $20K
Title: Re: Tour de France fantasy $20,000 major prize
Post by: Bazinga on July 22, 2010, 05:35:31 PM
Thanks Fletch. Made the mistake of trading Hushovd out while he was still in green jersey. I'm about 90 points off first place - its gunna be hard to chase it down with only 4 stages left.
