Fantasy Cycling

Ok guys,

here are two options for the cycling leagues, one is
http://www.nrtoone.com/fantasy/cycling/index.php?page=home

we already know about this one, is the same as last years TdF and Vuelta, the one with BBC 5 Live league. The guy has set up a Justcycling league for us and he will let us know when to start dong our teams for the TdF and Vuelta.

The second option is http://www.depontieu.net/cobble/index.php?CBL=2

this one has more races, not just the 3 GT´s but also other Pro Tour and 1 and 2 races, you can create a team up to the 6th of june, but if you miss that deadline you can create or change your team about once a month depending on the races etc... there is a justcycling league too.

We should decide which one do we fancy the most, and join just one, IMO
HuwB

Just a suggestion from a newbie.
There are so many threads that overlap, it's becoming impossible to follow half the debate. It's a similar groan that's appearing on the new ES Yahoo site, which, I'm yet to join.

Maybe the problem lies in the subject header being way to small. If folks can't read the title to a response, it's easier to make your point by starting a new thread. If we had a decent, banner headline, it would save on the number of threads. The result might be debates that are more "evolved", as Bianchgirl might say.

But who am I to criticise, if that's the way folks like it. Embarassed
Slapshot

do not reply all at the same time.......
cardinal guzman

I'll just go with the flow.
bianchigirl

I'll be a podium girl - well, I don't tip and I'd be a lousy mechanic....Laughing
naspa

I think stick with the old fantasy cycling from the BBC. We are familar with it. Also, I don't have enough time to set up my team for every single race etc.
70kmph

The reality has proven even more fantastic, few predicted the Giro correctly. The 'experts' constantly backing riders who underperform as these favorites are drifting toward the bottom of the GC in the 3rd week. They are now counting on some deus ex machina (divine intervention) to save their asses LOL
Biosphere

Hi All

It's the old league for me.
Bartali

Old league I think.
bbnaz

Either is good. However when I try to register a team for the tour on the BBC site, it won't let me.

As for the Cobblestone site, you do not have to enter a team for each race, rather the races are "clumped" together with specific dates set aside for you to change up your teams to represent the upcoming races. I believe that the final date to change your team for the tour is just before it starts............

It is a good league and fun as it has many sub sections that you can earn points/improve your placements.

Anyway would appreciate knowing the secret for choosing a team for choice number 1.
Slapshot

I think you need to wait until they announce the teams for the TdF, not sure, I will let everyone know when it starts.

They have aslo created a Justcycling League for us. (This is all in option 1)
bbnaz

well i am registered and waiting.

already playing over at the cobblestone site as well.
Slapshot

there is justcycling league there too!!!! Smile
bbnaz

well I will make sure that I join it if possible. right now i am in the brunai beasts sub-league.
naspa

Is it possible for us to do both?
Slapshot

yes, of course!!!!
NRT

Sorry, there was a bug that locked team edits, didn't spot it for the Giro because it only was a problem in tours with a prologue. You should now be able to create a new team or select new riders for your existing team.

All riders are available to be picked for the teams entered, except Barloworld because I haven't yet added all their riders to the DB.

As the actual team rosters are announced, I will trim the available to be picked riders appropriately. Team managers can swap and change their picks at any time up until the morning of ther prologue. Any riders picked that DNS are automatically randomly exchanged for riders of similar value that are riding.
Slapshot

thanks for the info NRT, and welcome!!!!
VeloSaint

Definately sticking with NRT's league, will be donating some cash too when I come to do my TdF team. My Giro effort was pitiful....
CapeRoadie

Old.
Nolte

i don't mind either way
bbnaz

NRT I still cannot choose a team. I sent you an e-mail from your site, hopefully you can tell what I am doing to make it not let me choose a team.
NRT

I replied to that email asking for more details of the error message you recieved. Eitherway I hope to fix it later this weekend.

WARNING: You cannot create a team after 12 am on the morning of the First Stage.

that is the message I receive when I try to create a team. Also I didn't get your e-mail, would you please re-send?
NRT

OK, try it now and let me know if it works.
bbnaz

Yippee! It works, it finally works!

Thanks for your efforts and now I shall go muck up a team. Laughing

Vino is now available, I missed his team change when I updated the rider list so he was still down as a LSW rider.

go to your account details, there should be a drop down where you can pick the "justcycling" league. It will say you're added, but it when you re-visit your details it won't show. It took a day for my team to appear in the rankings for the league.
Bartali

Cheers Jack
J1A2P3A4

Some body had posted a link in one of the threads that shows the Start list for the tour for all the teams. I cannot find the link can you post it again please here. Thank you.

In addition, I don't know if this is possible but when we are selecting our fantasy team could it be organized differently?
Some suggestion would be by their actual team:
Discovery
Name of riders
Astana
Name of riders
And so on
Or alphabetically by last name rather than by first name.
Or by country of origin.
Or multiple selection depending of the preference of the fantasy team manager

Just a thought. Very Happy Question Very Happy Question Very Happy Question Very Happy
Jackov

I still haven't figure out how that list is sorted.
bbnaz

I am trying to figure out the "Joker" part.
Slapshot

bbnaz, in the joker part you choose the stage that you think that rider will win, so for example if you have millar and you think that he will win the prologue, you choose the P, but you can only choose one stage per rider
bbnaz

thanks for that!
J1A2P3A4

So bergaretxebe is my request possible?

How about that link.

I was particularly looking for the Portuguese rider Paulinho that rides for discovery and I believe he is ridding the tour but I did not find him in the list.
J1A2P3A4

Team Bruyneel
Levi Leipheimer (Usa)
Alberto Contador Velasco (Spa)
George Hincapie (Usa)
Egoi Martinez de Esteban (Spa)
Sérgio Paulinho (Por)
Yaroslav Popovych (Ukr)
+ possible:
Stijn Devolder (Bel)
Vladimir Gusev (Rus)
J1A2P3A4

I still can't find Sérgio Paulinho (Por) in the list. Is he ridding the tour or not?
NRT

Not sure if they will be riding yet but I have promoted Paulinho and Kashechkin to the possible riders list.

link 1 will take one day, I think, and for link 2 I have to do it myself
bbnaz

berg, how do I know if on link 1 that I am in the Just Cycling group? I don't see where it indicates the league.
Slapshot

go to your profile, where you can change your details, and you will find the option to join any league or group that is on the list.

It normally takes 1 day to update

hi, how do i join the fantasy tour league?
cardinal guzman

Hi donncc,

http://www.nrtoone.com/fantasy/cy...php?page=home&selected_race=T

Go here, register, pick a team and team name, then go to rankings and join the justcycling league from the drop-down menu. It takes about a day for your entry to appear Smile
shimouma

How do you join?

I've picked a team - not a final one yet mind you - but there's no join option when you do what you say above cardinal.

Does it happen as if by magic when you click the justcycling league?
cardinal guzman

shimouma wrote:

sorry shim, my mistake - it's on the 'change account details' page - league select. Embarassed Very Happy
NRT

Provisional riders are now set. There will be a few minor tweaks to team rosters in the next week I guess. As for other tours, DNS riders will be automatically exchanged for riders of similar value after the first stage.

There is unlikely to be any updates until Sunday evening as I will be in London for the prologue.

343 teams entered so far!

Again, anyone donating will be including in the prize league with half the donation money up for grabs. As long as donations are recieved before I mark the prize league teams, probably with a week to go. In the Giro, the prize winner "Jonno" ended up in 30th place overall.
