    Fantasy Tour - BF version

    Now that the rosters are set we can start this. Just respond to this thread with your picks and get them in before the Prologue starts this Saturday. I will tally the points at the end. Winner gets respect and admiration of the BF community.

    Point categories and descriptions of how the points are awarded:
    1. GC: Points for overall position at Tour completion. Pick one rider.
    1st – 10pts, 2nd – 5pts, 3rd – 3pts
    2. Days in yellow: 2 points per day for every day rider in yellow jersey. Pick three riders.
    3. KOM (polka dot): 5pts, 1pt per day in PD. Pick one rider.
    4. Points (green jersey): 5pts for overall, 1pt per day in green. Pick one rider.
    5. Best young rider (white jersey): 5pts for overall, 1pt per day in white. Pick one rider
    6. Overall team: 5pts, pick one team.
    7. Stages 1-3 and 5-21: Pick 5 riders, if rider wins more than one stage, you get the extra points. 3 pts awarded for each stage win.
    8. Stage 4 TTT: 5pts. Pick 1 team
    9. Tie breaker: Guess the number of seconds the GC winner won by, closest breaks the tie.

    Here are mine.
    1. Contador
    2. Contador, Evans, Andy Schleck
    3. Simon Gerrans
    4. Thor Hushovd
    5. Nibali

    dagna pointed out that Gerrans wasn't chosen. I can't believe it, I thought I was clever picking him. I changed Gerrans to Sastre.

    AG2R have confirmed their full team:

    Jose-Luis Arrieta
    Cyril Dessel
    Hubert Dupont
    Vladimir Efimkin
    Stéphane Goubert
    Lloyd Mondory
    Rinaldo Nocentini
    Christophe Riblon
    Nicolas Roche

    I believe all teams are now confirmed. The only exception being confirmation from Quickstep that Boonen is not riding and Davis is.

    He wants to focus on the Vuelta. Yeah, I was surprised too considering how well he did last year.

    I will post updated scores after tomorrows TTT. No time today. Everything has been pretty predictable so far so I am assuming we will all be pretty close.

    Well you would be pretty far down of the leaders and I'm not sure it would fair at this point. I guess, but you could also wait for the Vuelta version.
