Personally I think doping is rightly punished in real cycling, and its appropriate that it should be so in the game too.

You could even take it further and introduce festina rules where the whole team gets docked after too many positives.

... so, if I choose a guy that is doping, I should "pay" (loosing the game) since he's an idiot?

a couple of years ago I was involved in an other game like this one (more or less) and to avoid to get issue with the doping, I took a guy that IMO was really far by the doping.....



























I lost that game

the UCI didnt respond to my email asking to see the blood profiles of all the riders I was considering.

I was very surprised last year when ingsve didnt withdraw his team following Alex Rasmussens whereabouts violations.

The reality is its part of cycling so its part of the game, and is dealt with sensibly by Hugo's rules.

Well, despite being 102nd on the week, I am still clinging to a spot in the top ten.

Looking at the numbers over the last several weeks, I noticed an ominous trend. Here are the rankings of last year's winner, ingsve, since week 8:

8: 65th
9: 54th
10: 50th
11: 36th
12: 39th
13: 38th
14: 35th
15: 32nd

Slowly and steadily, he is climbing up the board.

Well, people shouldn't be too worried. I have several riders that are underperforming this year so right now my hopes are not too high.

About doped riders getting caught - it's part of the game. It's also part of the game is a rider falls and breaks his collarbone - things happen and the CQ points reflect that.
