Vfr: Giro D'italia

Postby vfr on Mon 5/May/14 2:37pm

The spring monument classics were fun. Now it is time for the Vorb Fantasy Races to continue with the first Grand Tour of the Year. The Giro d'Italia will run throughout the month of May. Rider selections must be made before the start of the first stage on May 9th and to keep things interesting, in addition to selecting a team, you are allowed to choose a new stage winner every day. 25 bonus points will be awarded if you select the winning rider. The rider does not need to be on your team. One final request, when selecting a daily winner, there is a text field at the bottom that gets posted along with your selection. Please fill that in with either, a reason why you think your choice will win, or use it to talk smack.

Team selection:
Click the "Pick your riders" button above and select the members of your vorb fantasy race team. Next to each riders name you will see the riders ranking. As you select riders you will see your total team size and strength updated at the bottom. Your team must have 8 riders with a combined strength ranking of 7000 points or less. The event start list (from procyclingstats) has not been finalised so we recommend you check back as close to the start date as possible to make sure your selections are still valid or if one of your favorite riders has been added to the startlist.

Scoring:
Points are awarded for the finish, bonus points are awarded for the intermediate sprints and king of the mountain competitions.
30 points are awarded to the first finisher down to 1 point for 30th place
The first 3 riders at the Intermediate sprints get 3, 2 and 1 points respectively. If the stage is classified as a sprint stage bonus points are awarded to the top 10 riders in the finish line sprint
Bonus points are similarly awarded for KoM climbs. They go to the first 7 riders for Cat 1, 5 riders for Cat 2, 3 riders of Cat 3/4 and a single rider for Cat 5

Please note however, no points will be awarded for the team rime trial. So, even though rider selections close on the 9th, no points will be awarded until Stage 2

I see that they're televising the Giro on Sky starting this Saturday 4:30am. First time they've shown it since I've had sky. Yahoo!

yeah, the cycling package has been awesome this year. Just about all the classics, and a bunch of stage races already too.

You can change your team riders up until the race starts. After the start the teams are locked for the race duration.

Your pick for the daily stage winner may be changed every day during the event and does not have to be one of the riders on your team. There is no requirement to pick a daily stage winner it is just a chance to pick up a few extra bonus points. There is no requirement to change your pick on a daily basis. I am planning to leave Kittel as my pick for the first couple of flat stages but switch to someone like Quintana when they hit the mountains.
