no warning! fantasy tour of california is here!

it came so late (one day beforehand!) that i didn't think it was gonna be done this year.
tour of california is ready to go. a little mid-giro extra action for those so inclined. unlike the
grand tour games, there are no "categories" that you hafta choose from. if you wanna rock
9 sprinters or 9 climbers, have at it.

https://www.velogames.com/tour-of-california/2017/

league name: bike forums

league code: 13174757

deadline is tomorrow-sunday-at 11am pdt here in sunny california.

1,2,3,4,6 here. We'll see how this pencils out. I'm Sagan free, which is not wise.

I've only seen stage one, plan to watch stage two soon, but I was very impressed with Sagan (as usual), he was the only one that could stay with Kittel during the sprint. Sagan is simply an animal. We use to think of the Green Jersey as synonymous with Spinters, i.e. we called it the Sprinter's jersey...no longer...
