Vfr: Le Tour De France 2015

Postby vfr on Wed 24/Jun/15 10:28am

This year's Giro VFR comp was a close run race all the way to the finish. Let's hope the Tour de France comp is equally exciting. Those of you who have participated in earlier vorb fantasy races know what to do. For those of you who haven't, here is a run down of the rules...

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 9 riders with a combined strength ranking of 10000 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.

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

I think that is it, Bon Chance everyone

10000 points is a bit high (average > 1000 pts/rider), it allows you to stack your team and everyone will end up with similar teams.

How about a max of 7000 or 8000 to force peeps to pick some outsiders?

Ok, I've dropped it down to 9000. I wanted to make sure everyone could get their favorite riders. I think you'll still have to make some tough decisions to pick 9 riders for 9000

Isn't the idea that you have to work within a budget?

With 9000 pts you can still average 1000 per rider. If the total is too high then everyone will pick the same hitters which makes for a fairly boring comp.

Did everyone pick the same riders last year? Was it not a good comp last year? If u look at rider values there are a few around 2k. Also if u follow pro tour I would suggest there are about 12 riders who could win on any mountain stage..some teams are that loaded they have 2-3 who could win. It's not like it's just a ride off between contador..froome ..and quintana. Even if we did pick 3 hitters..then u take say Sagan and cav ss ur sprinters..ur still going to have to pick riders that at best might give you one result. I'm in favor of 10000 points. Also by picking top riders you reduce the chance of losing riders as we have dome in the past

Yes lets go with the majority. I just went through the teams and some haven't completed their team and already there are 28 riders with values above 1000. Tough call
