How it works


The Fantasy Tour is all about picking your very own Tour de France dream team. You can choose any riders from any team to make up the ultimate virtual team.
  • Pick your squad of 10 riders: 8 active riders and 2 substitutes.
  • Team submissions close once the Tour begins: at 12h00 SAST on Saturday, 6 July 2019.
  • Substitutes: On the two rest days during the race you'll have the opportunity to substitute riders. You can drop the non-performers or bring in some fresh legs.
  • Once substituted, riders can be used again, however points are only allocated while a rider is active.... if they're on the bench you don't score points.

Locked and loaded, will look forward to the usual performance of being somewhere near the bottom after the fist week and progress to an average showing by Paris!!

No, they have not announced it yet. Traditionally they are one of the last teams to do so.

It's easy, first you pick your team. Then you watch how some total unkown rider wins the first stage and gets into yellow for the first 10 stages, while the members of your team get sick, withdraw, fall of their bikes or get kicked out of the tour. So no need to worry about the points for the first 10 stages because you ain't going to get any. Then the rest day arrives and you decide to substitute the riders you've lost only to find that they are no longer in the tour. Then you check out the leaders team to see who they picked and you work out a strategy for next year and now you can't remember what that was. :huh:

How true.. what year was it when a lot of us ended up with 3 riders left.

Oh yeah the year Cavendish tried to headbutt Sagan and bounced off him..that was a gemors.

I think it was 2017 and to be fair the total "unknown" would not be kind to Geraint Thomas but really who would have expected him to be in yellow so early and for that long. I think I only had Froome and Meintjies producing any points for the last 10 stages.
