Vfr: Tour Down Under 2016

Postby vfr on Mon 11/Jan/16 6:29am

The vorb fantasy races (VFR) are back again for another year. We'll be including roadracing's 3 grand tours, the Monuments spring classics and we'll kick things off with the 2016 Tour Down Under.

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

The ocre jersey will be ripped off the back of the current holder and given to this years winner

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 Peoples Choice event starts, team selections will be closed and no further changes will be allowed. If you have a rider that crashes out in the peoples choice, and is unable to continue, you will start the event one rider down.
During the Grand Tours, you'll also be able to pick a daily stage winner to earn some valuable bonus points but we will NOT do that for the Tour Down Under.

Scoring:
Points will be given for stages 1-6, no points are awarded for the Peoples Choice event
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.
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
The Vorb monkey is also making a return. Her picks will be completely random but only include riders from the top 100 list.

How is Gerrans worth only 500 points for a race he's always prominent in and has won 3 times? :eh:

Bargain!!

Because we use procyclingstats for our rankings and they currently think Simon is ranked 247th in the world.
According to PCS he is worth 257 points but I just gave all riders outside the top 100 a score of 500 points to stop people creating a super team of the the top 4 riders in the world and 4 nobodies worth 2 points each. This year I have also capped the max score at 2000 points to so if you pick Valverde or Kristoff you won't blow your entire budget.

Now if only you had kept quiet about Gerrans track record at the TDU you might have had an advantage but I am expecting a sudden rush to make room for Gerrans on everyones squad.

Not so much haven't noticed, just more that I don't follow road riding and have *no clue* who any of these riders are :D
