Congrats KK, even with StevenK not sure I would have won

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Saturday 21.Jul 00:07, 2018
I concur!

I would like to see a overall ranking over the 3 GTs fantasy of the year :)

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Thursday 5.Jul 21:31, 2018
Wildcard bitches! Im home :D

Not for everyone. Cleans up a lot of awards though. So not just me loves it.

ritlefant [Ritlefant] Thursday 5.Jul 19:43, 2018
Fullers, gave it less than 2 out of five stars, so for sure not amongst the top 1000 on my list

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 5.Jul 19:39, 2018
18th FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
We only need to make the final for football to come home. It will be a memorable weekend regardless what happens.

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Thursday 5.Jul 19:37, 2018
23th FC-manager last 6 weeks
We will only be out at the final whistle of the Final, but we will return as winners :D

Good to see you are drinking British. I'm only eating and drinking British until we are knocked out of the World Cup. My friendly supermarket today delivered two dozen bottles of Fullers London Pride. The beer I get people to try who say they don't like British beer. Delicious.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 5.Jul 19:23, 2018
Kids just put to bed, coffee on the boil and Bulmer's in the fridge.

Slightly demented nan-in law who lives in part of the house we're currently housesitting to pop by ten times during the draft to ask about her medication to break the spell of serenity though ;)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 5.Jul 19:06, 2018

Just time to heat and eat a ready meal. British classic, 'Mince and Dumplings'. :)

18th FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Kicks off 40ish mins from now. Right?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 5.Jul 15:50, 2018
MIA just like in the World Cup?

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Thursday 5.Jul 15:38, 2018
Probably won't be there tonight. Have fun

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 5.Jul 15:25, 2018
18th FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
You would have one too many Francisco. Eight man teams now, not nine. :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 5.Jul 12:45, 2018
Tonight's menu:
Round 1 19:40-19:55 AG2R, Team Sky, Wanty Groupe Gobstoppers
Round 2 20:05-20:20 Team Vino, Bahrain-Merida, Direct Energie
Round 3 20:30-20:45 BMC, Team Sunweb, Fortuneo-Some sick team
Round 4 20:55-21:10 UAE, FDJ, Cofidis not p/b Nacer Bouhanni (nor Rayanne)
Round 5 21:20-21:35 Lotto-Soudal, Michelton-Scott, Movistar
Round 6 21:45-22:00 Quick-Step, Dimension Data, Team EF Education First - Winning bicycle races far down the priority list
Round 7 22:10-22:25 Katusha, Lotto-Jumbo, Trek-Segafredo, Bora-Hansgrohe
Bonus round(s) After hours To fill up empty spaces on teams. No set deadline, any bid which stands for five minutes win the rider.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 5.Jul 12:23, 2018
Just in your wet dreams. Dupont was an important part of my season fantasy portfolio for a year, and the Planckaert family is also represented there. De Gendt however....

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 5.Jul 09:25, 2018
That would probably piss Andy off as much as when Thomas de Gendt clinched me the win in the 2016-Tour.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Thursday 5.Jul 00:50, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 8th FC-manager last 6 weeks
I'll try to repeat my winning strategy from the Giro. Noone inside top 15 GC, T. Dupont can take the role of Baptiste Planckaert, and then five $1 riders scoring close to zero points to fill up the roster.

Will be hard to beat my season fantasy line-up though, having 14 starters.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Wednesday 4.Jul 23:49, 2018
23th FC-manager overall - 19th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Probably i値l Start a bit later than you but no problem. I値l need two strong moves only to beat you all..

P.S Quite sure, i値l Have to eat all these words soon... :D

After watching Portugal vs. Uruguay, i知 in for a 7 working men plus 2 lethal weapon riders...:D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 4.Jul 20:22, 2018
Great, boris!

boris03 [Cycling lions] Wednesday 4.Jul 19:55, 2018
I'll try to play but I'm not sure will I be able to do it.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 4.Jul 17:34, 2018
Fjellda and RocketMan confirmed

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 4.Jul 16:32, 2018
Boycotting that after Kaggestad jr said Jungels can't climb

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 4.Jul 14:43, 2018
Whilst we're on this tangent, Timothy Dupont available as a domestique at the second lowest price in Tv2's Tourmanager is: http://www.skaip.org/holidayspirit-emoticon

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Wednesday 4.Jul 14:34, 2018

very well.
*postponed his retirement yet again.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 4.Jul 14:24, 2018
He's pushing it back rather than forward, isn't he?

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Wednesday 4.Jul 14:15, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 8th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Some dirty Eastern Europen country without Sirs. Brits don't dope just like Norwegians don't either. This summer we once more get the pleasure of listening to holy knight Kaggestad who pushed his retirement forward yet again.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 4.Jul 14:02, 2018
18th FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
So where am I getting mine from this year then?

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Wednesday 4.Jul 13:59, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 8th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Decent chance that I'll attempt the Giro/Tour double if no police at my door looking for drugs that I of course don't have

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 4.Jul 13:25, 2018
So I currently have:
Kjepp
Assassin
sylvain
Ritle (not 100%)
LSK Cycling/The original Remi
Andy
KristianK
JohnJackJoe (not 100%)
Aragonite
Tomas
PartyFinn
Nathan
Francisco

Which currently leaves us at 13, included two who are not certain to make it. Would be good to get some more for proper competition and the Grmays/Minaards of the world to possibly get drafted too.

I've texted Fjellda plus tweeted Tank and Fikerud. Are you going all diva and confirming your participation at the last minute again, EPO?

Loebas, Jspear, boris, sker up to participate again? Anyone else we should reach out to?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Sunday 1.Jul 18:58, 2018

I'm doing this one from a place far far away. Just crossing my fingers for a proper internet-connection.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 28.Jun 18:21, 2018
18th FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
I'm in.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 28.Jun 14:37, 2018
I wouldn't worry about there not being a slot available for you, triple-J.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Thursday 28.Jun 12:54, 2018
80% in, so if 20 other managers come in first I'd pass. Not sure if I have a commitment during the draft.

Yea i'll handle the purchase

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 27.Jun 23:45, 2018
Mate I'll chip in on a user dose of coke, but given it's your area I'll let you handle the purchase.

23th FC-manager last 6 weeks
I'm in but a Coca cola rather than bulmers thanks :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 27.Jun 19:36, 2018
First of all, let me break out the old saw and apologize for not being quite on top of things - I have yet to watch the last three stages of the Giro. So this is my official CONGRATULATORAH to EPO for winning what I think has to be closest top 3 in a fantasy GT ever.

Time for the rematch, I'm ready to put in a good performance on this site again after utter dross these last months apart from Paris-Roubaix Espoirs (suck it, Nate).

Step forward fantasy Tour de France! Time for Ritle to spend 80 on Seter Pagan and Troy to spend 82 on god-knows-who given Jan Polanc is off for his long-due taxidermy. And probably KristianK to nick it at the end without a single Gordon Bantzer.

Format is as follows:
Up to 20 managers can enter
Managers have 90 Gadrets to complete an 8 man squad from the competing riders
Riders are signed in auctions where the highest bid wins
A rider can only be signed by one team
Riders earn points for their teams per the First Cycling-formula for Grand Tours
Unused Gadrets give points too
The squad with the most points at the end of the race wins

More details here on rules and points here:

Team composition and results from last year's Fantasy Tour here - you too can have the chance of doing one of the most satisfying things of this site - unseating Andyman as champion: http://firstcycling.com/fcfstart.php?ritt=17&aar=2017

This auction for this year's Fantasy Tour will be held on Thursday 5th of July from 19:40 and will take about 2,5 hours to complete. I'll post times and composition for the auction rounds in advance.

You enter by posting here - I will be buying whoever wins a Bulmer's every night at WC19.
