The 2015 edition of Paris Nice starts in one week so it is time to start picking your vorb fantasy race teams.

Great Uncle Bulgaria has already replaced his Paris Nice 2014 gold medal with the Tour Down Under jersey but Farm and Buds are at risk of losing their avatar medals if they don't win this year. You get to wear the medals on your avatar for one year and then they get relegated to your profile page.

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 8 riders with a combined strength ranking of 8000 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

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. If you want to keep your stage winner selection for more than 1 day, you do not need to do anything, your existing choice will be used each day until you do change it. There is a text box at the bottom that gets posted along with your daily selection. Please fill that in with a reason why you think your choice will win, or just use it to talk smack.

The first stage is a short time trial prologue so choose accordingly

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

Start lists updated. I looks like all the teams now have 8 riders listed although only half the teams are listed as "confirmed"

Last call.
I'll leave the selections open until I get up in my morning but I shall look askance at any team selected after 1:30am (NZ-Time) which I think is when the prologue time trial starts
