Vfr: Tour Down Under 2015

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Sun 11/Jan/15 10:14am

The vorb fantasy races (VFR) are returning for another season of bench racing and wild speculations. We'll be including roadracing's 3 grand tours, the Monuments spring classics and a, somewhat random, selection of other stage races starting next weekend with the 2015 Tour Down Under.

Of course we'll also be running comps for the Downhill and Cross country Mountain Bike Worldcup races as well.

The Vorb monkey is also making a return and I'm afraid to say she has learned the names of the top 100 riders (according to procyclingstats). Her picks will be completely random but only include riders from the top 100 list. I expect quite a few vorbii director sportifs will get embarrassed by a dart throwing monkey!

One change for the roadraces this year is we'll be handing out jerseys for the winner only instead of medals for the whole podium

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 below the team rider list. Your team must have 7 riders with a combined strength ranking of 5000 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. As soon as the race starts, team selections will be closed and no further changes will be allowed

Scoring:
Points are awarded for the finish, bonus points are awarded for the sprints and king of the mountain competitions.
30 points are awarded to the first finisher down to 1 point for 30th place
Up to 10 riders at the Intermediate sprints will be awarded points. 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 10 riders for HC, 7 riders for Cat 1, 5 riders for Cat 2, 3 riders of Cat 3/4 and a single rider for Cat 5

Definitely keen for this. But I'll have to do some homework first....
The vorb monkey isnt the only one to use maths to weight her selections... :paranoid:

Start list has been updated. I think the only changes were UniSA-Australia finalizing their lineup.
