The Fantasy Giro has just finished, with 50 Hubbers testing the revised scoring format that is much simpler to understand and maintain. As usual, the first few posts will be reserved for the intro, rules, teams, riders, entrants and more.
 
The scoring for 2016 has been revised from last year, and improved upon from previous years. For the newbies, the previous editions can be viewed as follows:

How the tour competition works?

Basic Rules:

  • Pick a squad of 12 riders (9 active riders and 3 substitute riders):
    • On each stage, the 9 active riders picked will score points based on the scoring criteria for each stage;
    • There is no limit on the number of changes you can make, but these can only be done on the 2 rest days and is limited to your squad of 12 riders. Riders already substituted can be used again, without limit.
    • If a rider(s) withdraw(s) from the Tour due to injury, rules discretion, etc., your pool of riders will reduce accordingly.
  • Based on the performance of each active rider, you will score points in various categories.
  • Entries close at the time the first stage is due to start – 12:00 (SA Time) on 02 July 2016.
  • Entries can only be submitted using the submission form setup by Admin. The link to this form will be available closer to the start time.

A summary of how points can be scored is shown below:

Anyone do some actual betting online WRT to Grand tours?

 

Wonder if there are odds on Adam Hansen starting both TDF and Vuelta this year.
