In less than 2 weeks Rik may have to surrender the maillot jaune when we kick off the 2016 edition of the Tour de France Vorb Fantasy Race. Last year was hard fought and close, so the only change to this years rules is the 2000 point cap on rider cost. So we may see Valverde on a few teams this year. 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 (although it looks like only the final stage is classified as flat)
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

I chose the following riders for my team
Fabio Aru worth 1633 points
Daniel Martin worth 500 points
Thibaut Pinot worth 1566 points
Nairo Quintana worth 1701 points
Geraint Thomas worth 1181 points
Roman Kreuziger worth 500 points
Alberto Contador worth 1574 points
Ryder Hesjedal worth 493 points
Mark Renshaw worth 500 points

Total team strength = 9648

I picked Marcel Kittel to win the next stage

Quick swag to see how easy picking the team is this year. It was not easy, I had to cut a few of my first picks because they cost too much. I'll probably completely redo the squad when I have a chance to carefully consider my choices

Looking like a good year for the Kiwis with 4 riders set to make the Grand Depart - Henderson, Bauer, Bennett and Archbold! That's got to be close to a record for any one year.

Rider selections updated for the final time. All squads on the startlist are marked as finalised.
The only VFR team that needs changes is Kev. Apparently Ryder Hesjedal will not be starting
