Giving this thread a bump. This is my favorite cycling game. You pick a team of 7-9 riders (depending on the actual size of teams in the race) and you score off stage wins and gc. It's very fun and there's good competition. There's game managers for 100+ races throughout the year...more than enough to keep ya busy. :)

First races are San Luis and TdU.

Hey folks, multiple managers coming up! Vuelta Colombia for example, there aren't many previews available on this so you could really show ur knowledge here! One week to go and I'm only sure about one thing in my team :

Image

Simple rules really :

- choose your team of 9 riders
- the riders score points for places between no.1-30
(2x the scale for GC positions in stage races, own rules for Grand Tours)
- your riders have different roles inside your team, from captains to domestiques (the different roles gets calculated in how many points a rider get for a victory etc, the variables are shown where you select your team)
- So lets say your rider wins the GC, that's 200 points. See the points table below

Image

Lastly I must say that my favorite tool of all is "Follow the rider" -option. After you've followed the rider they will be marked on all result lists on the site and you can get your own, personal result feed. For example something like this

In addition to manager competitions for about 100 races each year, there are also games for the seasoned nerd (like LosBrolin and me):

Fantasy Grand Tours: one-off games for grand tours where 15-20 DSs compile nine-man squads through auction rounds with the participating riders. Tour Fantasy just finished http://firstcycling.com/fcfstart.php, Vuelta-fantasy coming up

Season Fantasy: the ultimate game, dynasty fantasy game where 15-20 DSs compile 20-30 riders squads through drafts and trades in two windows each season. Current teams here http://firstcycling.com/fcfseason.php, intake of new managers before 2018-season sets off in Januray

Sign up for this game all y’all. It’s the best game out there imo. You can see it explained above. First race is TdU.

Thanks Jspear. First four races of the season are opened, complete calendar can be found here http://firstcycling.com/manager.php?aar=2018&k=komplett#r2.

It has all WT-races, all HC-races (I think) and the best .1-categorized plus most important U23-races in addition to cult classics like Tro-Bro Leon. Something for nerds of all hues, like me.

Love,
Partykjeppen

You’re not forced into picking GC riders, sprinters, etc. you can pick any 9 riders you want. There’s no budget. Find your own ration of sprinters vs GC riders, pick who you think will be the best and go from there.
