Team entered. Going with my yearly challenge of "pick a team that doesn't include Chris Froome".

Will pick later. Thank you Felicity.

Sad news on the Velogames tdf:

Due to a recent legal notice, entries into the current Fantasy Grand Tour game are currently suspended until further notice.

It is fair to say I am absolutely gutted about this turn of events, but do not want to comment further until the situation progresses.

At present it is looking unlikely that the current Fantasy Grand Tour game will go ahead as planned.

Yours in fantasy cycling, George

It comes as TDF launch their own fantasy league...

EndoplasmicReticulum Fri 06-Jul-18 16:07:59

Well that's shit. I won't do the official one, sod that.

FelicityLemon Fri 06-Jul-18 20:56:17

Nooo. How can anyone own a list of names? Which is effectively all any fantasy tournament is.

But, but, butbutbutbutbutbut WHAT?


On a better note, hello everyone, how nice to see you all again.

MrSlant Fri 06-Jul-18 20:58:50

Shall we just try and make a team and do our best on here? I'm not sure I'm bright enough without the helpful scroll down menus.

EndoplasmicReticulum Fri 06-Jul-18 22:28:36

Eurosport have a Fantasy cycling - I have put a team on there (seems a bit crap though as there is no points system which I think means you can just pick who you want).

12 hours left.

What's particularly irking about the whole thing is why did they leave it to just the day before to shut down the Velogames?

IStillMissBlockbuster Sat 07-Jul-18 07:21:02

It seems rather nefarious. Perhaps because it doesn't give Velogames time to just change the name very slightly and going ahead as per usual.

That's a shame. Bastards.

Well, what a stage 1. Drama crashes and the right winner! grin bike

Great winner, what a day first time at the TdF and straight into the yellow!

Froomey spent the first week of the Giro on the floor so I'm thinking it's a weird form of tactics?

EndoplasmicReticulum Sun 08-Jul-18 21:22:19

I keep thinking "what about my team?"

One of them was off the front for a long time today. Not that it matters.
(still cross about the velogames thing).

MrSlant Sun 08-Jul-18 21:42:01

I know it's weird but it takes quite a lot of the fun out of it! I think I'm a lot more competitive than I thought. Mind you I always seem to start well then tail off badly towards the end so it's not terrible wink

Although so far we've got Froome fell off, Cav had bad luck and Sagan won a stage so it's all panning out as you'd expect. Not at home so I don't have a TV but I'm doing my best with the Guardian live coverage.

DramaAlpaca Sun 08-Jul-18 23:09:18

I'm miffed about Velogames. Denied my chance of an MN peloton hat trick. Bah!

Never mind, I'll enjoy the coverage & the chat on here as always bike

IStillMissBlockbuster Mon 09-Jul-18 19:33:57

Yeah i'm missing velogames too

EndoplasmicReticulum Mon 09-Jul-18 20:24:36

Team time trials are boring. Sorry, but they are.

EndoplasmicReticulum Mon 09-Jul-18 20:38:02

Also what does this mean?

The link goes to the official site I think.

IStillMissBlockbuster Mon 09-Jul-18 22:03:37

Oh! Velogames TDF is back!

EndoplasmicReticulum Tue 10-Jul-18 21:11:53

I don't think so, sadly.

IStillMissBlockbuster Tue 10-Jul-18 21:40:58

Oh you're right
