2021 GIRO FANTASY COMPETITION
If you like Fantasy Competitions but find them too complicated or too time intensive, this is the one for you. This is the simplest and most engaging competition out there.
HOW IT WORKS
1. You choose a rider per stage. You get that rider’s time for the stage as well as KOM and Sprint points (note: time bonuses do apply).
2. Each rider you choose has his time and points go towards your overall total. The person with the lowest time at the end of the competition wins, just like the real race.
3. You can only choose a rider once throughout the race.
There are also daily prizes for who picks the correct winner (ties will be randomly drawn), an overall KOM and Sprint prizes, and a Lantern Rouge prize as well. What happens if you accidentally miss a stage? No problem, you’re not out of the game. You can read the full rules here.
You can also create mini-leagues to compete with your friends, colleagues or family and compete for bragging rights or offer prizes of your own!
NOTE: Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, August 2, 2020 (stage 5). Late entries will receive the default picks (see rules) for stages missed.
The CyclingTips Fantasy Competition will be open from August 27 until September 20, 2020. Each day we’ll be sending registered entrants stage previews, the Secret Pro’s inside tips, results, and latest news from the race.
