FirstCycling launches season-long budget fantasy manager

Hello fine purveyors of cycling,

Are you constantly frustrated on how Sir Dave gets it wrong in the cobbled classics?
How Movistar's three-trident attack at last year's Tour was five too few?
That putting together a fantasy squad for one race is fraught by chance, but true skill will prevail over the full season?

FirstCycling have put together a season-long fantasy game where you get the chance to prove your mettle by compiling a squad of 20 riders on a budget. The game will run from March 2nd – October 20th. The winner is the manager whose squad score the most FirstCycling-points.

Vital information:
-You are given 6 monthly transfers
-The transfer window is open every month between 20th -> month change
-Prices of riders will fluctuate monthly with performance
-Compete with friends – you can set up private leagues
-Prizes; there will be cycling jerseys to win. More info regarding prizes to come ;)

Sign up + full info:
Deadline: March 2nd at 10:00 CET – coinciding with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Good luck to all, and obviously our classic fantasy game spanning 140 races this season will run alongside our budget fantasy.
