JOIN OUR FANTASY TOUR LEAGUE!
The Tour de France is upon us and that means it is time to root for your favorite riders in Contender’s Tour de France pool. This year we are taking on a fantasy league vibe. It is simple, fun and points will be on the line for every stage. Plus there are great prize packages for whoever accumulates the most points and finishes 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall! Enter by posting a comment with your picks on this blogpost. You must submit your picks before the Tour de France starts this coming Saturday, July 1. Here is how it works!
You pick your squad. Choose nine riders who you think will win stages and the jerseys at the Tour. It is up to you! Pick climbers, pick sprinters, a time trial ace, an escape artist or whomever you think could potentially win a stage or finish on the final podium. Fill your team with riders from any team that will give you the most total wins! Each stage win receives 2 points. If a rider on your team wins the Yellow Jersey or is 2nd or 3rd overall, you will receive 9, 6 and 3 points respectively. With one of your riders winning the Green Sprinter’s Jersey you’ll receive 4 points and for the Polka Dot Climber’s Jersey you’ll receive 6 points! New to this year’s fantasy league, pick your favorite team and receive 1 point for every stage won by that team. Additionally, if one of your riders drops out of the Tour, you will lose 5 points.
