Hi all

FirstCycling.com just went online in an english version. So now all of you have the possibility to enter our own managergame to compete amongst the best of us.

Its easy to choose your team of riders amongst does lining up at the start. Screenshots from the managergame added.

Throughout the cycling season we run managergames on 100 different races. I'm pretty sure that makes us the one site in the world where you can make the most entries with your "manager team".

http://www.firstcycling.com/

The site is non-commercial and build by the fans for the fans. Originally from Norway. Along with the managergame the site contains results, stageprofiles, race-, team- and riderprofiles and much much more. Pay us a visit :)

Still time to sign up for the Vuelta a Colombia as the TTT doesn't count in the manager game.
None of you can beat me anyway, but you're welcome to try.

World Championships

Just wanted to let you know that we're running an own World Championship competition, where a champion is crowned from the results of all our WC-managers. With both the road race and the time trial from Jr, U23 and Senior and the Team Time Trial that should make it a total of 7 competitions for the action in Ponferrada this year :)

And we just introduced monthly rankings, so that everyone can compete in the standings no matter when they joined in.

We've entered 2015 and it's possible to sign up for the Tour Down Under manager. The San Luis manager will soon be opened as well. This season, just like last season, there will be 100 manager games to participate in. All of these games make up the season competition, so if you join now you can try to beat me.

New of this season is the team competition. Join up with four other players and try to beat the other teams.

The manager season starts in just three days with the Tour de San Luis on monday. Then the day after, January 20th, the Tour Down Under kicks off. Sign up now so you can compete at 100 % in the season competition, it is more fun that way.

2 hours left to sign up for San Luis and 9 hours until the Tour Down Under manager game closes. My teams should be well researched and I of course see myself as the favorite here :)

Enjoyed the Tour Down Under...I know riders get points for being in the top 30 of each stage...I'm wondering how the final GC works as far as points go? Thanks!

It's the same, just double the stage points. Wippert got 100 points for winning the final stage, Dennis got 200 for winning the GC.

It's different for grand tours though. Then it's 400 points for the GC winner, given that you had the rider in the same position the entire race. You are able to make substitutions on rest days.

Ahh ok. I hoping I'll have my strategy down as to how I pick teams by the time the GT's are here. :) It's definitely an enjoyable game!

Paris-Roubaix on sunday! I know who my captain will be, but other than that it's impossible to fit all the top candidates into the manager team of 8 riders. Might as well close my eyes and pick at random.

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.

Two hours until the manager for the Australian RR closes and you'll be running behind in the season competiton, TDU- and San Luis-competitions also open.
 
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 :



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



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
