Hello from Boston
Well, I am not actually a rider (too old, and not enough in shape), primarily a fan. I grew up in France, but moved to Boston back in 1978. I have followed the sport since the early 1970s, primarily the TDF (which I watched religiously every day growing up), as well as the other major tours and one-day classics. Favorite riders include Merckx, Thevenet, Hinault and I now enjoy watching Andy Schleck and (when he is ready to attack in the mountain) Cunego. One of my hobbies has always been fantasy games, and I am hoping to find others in this forum who enjoy friendly virtual competition. To this effect I have created a fantasy Tour de France game, in which you can pick a team of nine riders for every stage of the Tour, and compete for stage wins and overall leader jerseys. The game is located at www.fanletour.net
, it is free, and will remain so as I am just doing this for fun.
I am looking forward to the online discussions on this year's TDF, and I hope some of you will want to join in the virtual fun at the website above.
