As mentioned earlier sadly there will be no Velogames for the TdF which starts this Saturday with two stages centred on Brussels in Belgium.

The Grand Depart kicks off at 11.00am UK time. Having tonight reviewed alternative fantasy games my view is that the best one for simplicity is the RoadCC competition. There is a RoadUK one, an Irish Times, a Cycling for Free comp and also possibly TdFs own official comp which wasn't very good last year - none of which have been launched yet. Road CC however is launched.

There are two games involved in Road CC TDF Fantasy

1. Standard game with transfers ( 45 over 21 stages). This involves daily review and looking at the type of stage shaping your team by moving riders in and out.

2. Purist game which is pick your team of 8 cyclists and stick with it throughout the Tour ( like Velogames) with no transfers allowed

Rules

Pick 8 cyclists within your given budget. Points are scored as follows

a top 20 finish on any stage 35, 30, 25, 20 and so on
Points for wearing one of the 4 shirts at the end of any stage.
Intermediate stage points

Go too www.fantasy.road.cc/login

Register with the site ( hit the sign up button) - you will need to be approved by the site's admin which takes about 2 hours to come through. Then away you go

Have set up two leagues depending on what game you want to do - either or both

FMTTM - Standard League Code 75735 ( transfers)

FMTTM - Purist League Code 75736 ( no transfers)

Hope that works and any problems please post.

Deadline 11.00am Saturday 6th July

I see that Cavendish will not be riding. Injuries and illness seem to have taken their toll. I was really hoping to see an in form Cavendish close in on Mercx' record.

I fear the days of Cav winning stages at the TdF are over.

Just to reiterate those interested please don’t leave until the last minute to register. It does take a few hours to get approval. Get on site and you can change your team at anytime up until Saturday morning at 11:00.

Already we have 7 entries in the Purist league.

That took some sorting out!
I'm still not too sure about the rules and it wasn't as straightforward as Velo.
Nevertheless, thanks for sorting it out! [^]

Looking forward to it.

Gutted Cav hasn't been selected by Dimension Data. Crazy decision imo. DD having a terrible year, one stage win will save their season. And they pick Lars Bak and Steve Cummings (one rider in even worse form than Cav) ahead of him.

I can only think that the first 10 days aren't particularly great for sprinters and they maybe think Cav won't go the full distance.

Cav can't compete with the in form sprinters.

I guess DD must see their only chance of a stage win being a breakaway win.

I always pick a team and then spend ages transferring in and out riders before the race starts, looking up rider stats on line, trying to remember who looked good in previous tours etc. And then after all that fine fettling, I usually finish last. [B)]

Lets do this.

*sigh* "Spaces are allowed" in the username when you sign up for the main site, but not in the username you use for the fantasy league.

Why I'm not a programmer, I have no idea. Probably because I would actually test the b100dy implementations.

If you phrase it as "Ned or Carlton" it becomes no decision at all.

Caleb Ewan comes good at last. Just surprised how many sprint stages it took as he has looked sharp.

Justkiwi's Eketahuna Eagles ploughs on in front. Dr Doof drops 4 b places too the advantage of GeoffV and myself.

It should be a sprint past Betty's, but cycling is increasingly not conforming to the unwritten rules 😁

The finish is different from the TdF finish in that in 2004 the race came straight down Ripon Road and up Parliament Street past Betty's. In the Worlds they have a sharp right hand into the bottom of Parliament Street.

Scores are in. Alaphilippe spectacular. Thomas excellent. Ouch for Van Aert and he’s gone. No change at the top of the purist although long time leader JK lead cut. Good stage for Hairington in the Standard consolidates his lead.

Anyone else suspect that Alaphilippe is taking something? I love the TdF, but so often when a rider puts in an 'unbelievable' performance.... it's because it is. Maybe I've been left a bit suspicious by what's happened in the past. (I suppose (to be objective) it was a time trial course that suited him).

I think Alaphillipe has had a very natural progression to this point. He's clearly the best rider in the world this year, but go back over the last 5 years and his palmares stack up:

He's won the KoM in the Tour, he's won Tour stages. He's finished Top 50 and Top 40 on GC.

He's won 7-10 day long stages races like Amgen California and Tour of Britain. And he's finished top 5 in Paris Nice and Top 6 in Tirreno.

Normally, any rider doing that would be talked up as potential GC I think. It's just that Alaphillpe is such a good one day rider that it's maybe been overlooked.

Ok so I am a cynical bugger but ask me if Allaphillipe is legit? I’d say questionable on evidence. He’s doing things he’s never done before. If it’s not blowing away the field in an ITT he’s going up Le Tourmalet with ease and then gifting Pinot a win. A la Lance Armstrong and Pantani.

That’s my opinion anyway and concerned for cycling.

Anyway new leader in the standard Comp. GeoffV takes over.

I can understand the cynicism, but I'd still say he's shown progression over 5 years.

It's not like Armstrong where he went from pure one day rider to king of the world almost overnight. And if we question Alaphillipe's ability to climb the Tourmalet, we have to question Thomas too, no?

Back up and running in the final week and Caleb Ewan proves he is the strongest sprinter in the Tour currently. New leader in the Standard Comp with Cardiffdaffs taking over from geoffv but it is so close between the top 4.

In the purist Justkiwi still leads although losing Fuglsang, who abandoned after a fall today, makes it an interesting finish.

Quintana wins from the break. Did we see a weakness in Pinot as well and does Bernal now look good. No change in the Standard - Justkiwis lead in the Purist is now down to just 3 points.

I haven't seen the end of today's stage yet - 69km to go on my screen - but just looking at the league progress up to yesterday and it does look like I picked a team for the third week, doesn't it?

Absolutely mental day's racing, as dramatic as it gets.

Course shortened for today due to the Poseidon Adventure on the slopes - now a 59km uphill sprint. BatXXXXXX.

So after that dramatic and curtailed stage yesterday we saw a new leader in the yellow jersey, a favourite abandoning and a new leader in the Purist comp. Long time leader Justkiwi succumbing to GeoffV. It does look like a two horse race between the two of them now. Dr Doof's challenge looks like fading with Pinot ending and Bernal's surge to the front. Marmers needs another big day for Simon Yates and Pinot yesterday also gave Steer's chances a blow.

In the Standard Hairingtons has moved back to joint second with Just kiwi and they are now furiously chasing Cardiffdaffs who has a small lead. GeoffV still can win too - the rest way back (including me in 5th)

It’s a Team Ineos 1-2. No podium for the French as Kruyjswyk (and Buchanan) overtaook Alaphilippe on the final climb. With one stage remaining Geoffv has a clear lead in the Purist from StuSmith who has come in to challenge late.

A late challenge but think I'm too far behind unless I get a Sagan / Groenewegen 1-2 tonight.

I'm pleased that I managed to picked the Yellow, Green and Polka Dot Jersey wearers.

Wiggins is having a blinder today on the back of the bike [:D]

Just accused Ineos of having shít Lidl champagne despite having the biggest budget.

It's worth suffering Carlton on Eurosport just to get the fleeting visits of Brad.

What do people think of Barguil's tour? Would it be considered a success? He finished 10th in the GC which I would guess is the first time hes managed to get in the top 10. But because hes never been far enough behind the yellow jersey he hasn't been allowed to get involved for stage wins but hes never been close enough to ever really mount a challenge for yellow Jersey either. In 2017 he got 2 stage wins and the polka dot Jersey as he lost time early. Surely a tour like that would be more desirable.

A top 10 is a hell of an achievement, but unless you're a genuine contender then it might possibly be wiser to focus on stages to be honest.

I'd imagine the pressure on French riders from a GC perspective is hard to resist, even if they don't think they've got a chance. Given the GC focus of teams like Ineos and Movistar and then the strength of Jumbo Visma and Mitchelton Scott then it does put a lot of pressure on the French riders and particularly the French teams.

Ps, how beautiful does Paris look as the peloton charges through the late evening sun towards the Arc?

Apologies for the delay in getting the final table and results up but just got back from a music festival and miss d today’s stage. Anyway here goes.

Caleb Ewan proves once again that he is finishing the Tour as best sprinter with his third stage win. Many congrats to Egan Bernal and to the Ineos team for their 1-2 on GC.

And to the final tables and congratulations to GeoffV who is our Purist League (quite comfortably in the end) winner from Stusmith and Marmers taking the other two Podium spots.

In the Standard League a win at last for who seems to have been the runners up King - Cardiffdaffs holding off the challenge of GeoffV and Justkiwi who are our joint runners up on the podium. GeoffV undoubtedly the strongest player in the TdF comp with a win and second.

Aaw, 6pts from 2nd spot. I couldn't fit Sagan in, but even Griepel instead of Viviania woulda bumped me up. Oh well.

Can’t help feeling short changed with such a lowly placing given I had the overall winner and third place. But then they didn’t really do much tangible and stepped up/fell upwards late on.

Thanks for running it!
