    With the Tour just around the corner no one wants to get in on the fantasy game?

    I'm in. People likely don't want to make/disclose picks yet.

    You can sign up though, and then change rosters later before the start.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    You cannot see anyone's team until after the race starts.

    I'm in. I hope to improve on what was a very unpredictable Giro.

    Cycling News is running a fantasy game, too. It's a little more work but has some possibilities. Info below, and I've created a mini league there, too. If you only do one, do velogames, but why not do both?

    Go to the game at http://fantasy.cyclingnews.com and go to 'Register to Play', pick your team then use the ‘Mini-League Admin' option to join the mini-league.

    The details you need are:

    I've changed my entries 3 times already and I just entered yesterday. I haven't even watched the Tour de Suisse yet, I could change everything again.

    I gotta say tho, Froome and Porter were looking really dood in the Du Duaphine.

    Well I follow the cycling action I can catch on NBCsports, and one or two obscure sports stations, but I don't ever get a chance to catch the other races online, so I am using what little knowledge i know from watching what I can for the last 4 years to benchmark this first attempt. I am sure I will be right there with you, lol.

    If you don't mind bit torrent, cyclingtorrents.nl is pretty awesome. It's not the same as watching in real time, but its nice to watch the race with all the commercials removed...and it's nice to actually see the race rather than 58 minutes of hockey crap and 2 minutes of cycling before the dvr kicks off.

    Oh, the agony of choice. Sagan or Cavendish. Tough to do both unless you're going to abdicate on the GC side where all the big points are. Should be a heckuva contest.

    Honestly, the Vuelta last year was fireworks, and the Tour was kind of a joke. The exact opposite this year. So many good riders and unpredictable stages. I foresee much lamenting over missed opportunities, but general excitement over how great of a race this is going to be.

    One key is keeping an intact squad. What are the odds Rolland pops positive between now and the end of the tour?
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    ^ the way the Dauphine ended for him seems rather suspicuous.

    That is one of the things that I've been teeter-tottering on. Should I have him on and he gets it and I lose out? Argh, damn risks and I'm sick of being at the end..
