    Fantasy Tour Down Under 2012

    Here's what I've found so far.

    League ID: 75505
    This one is pretty simple. You pick 9 riders and it looks like you get 2 transfers per stage. I set up a BikeForums league for us.

    Not quite as user-friendly and it makes you pick a ton of riders.

    Not quite open yet but it looks promising.

    Based on predicting the podium for both the GC and individual stages.

    I don't really "get" this race, so I wouldn't even know where to start. It's supposed to be more of a climber's race this year, but it's been won in the past by every type of rider except for a pure climber, namely Australians. My best guess would be to just pick the entire GreenEdge team, which is Australian and has everything but pure climbers.

    Maybe I do get it.

    The main obstacle is Willunga Hill, which you may remember from when Thor Hushovd won the Worlds. It's not a mountain, but it may be difficult enough to keep the sprinters from winning the race. If Gilbert were racing it's the kind of finish he'd kill on. They are giving out time bonuses on the flat stages, though, so it should be interesting to see if the sprinters can hang on or if the hill climbers can gain enough time to take the GC.

    Your best bet may be a guy like Boasson Hagen who can sprint and climb.

    PlayVelo is live now. One of the 1-pointers is a steal.

    I don't like the ones where you have to change things every day. I don't have time for that!
