In my fantasies I'm in charge of a richer team, but my lot seem like a nice bunch to shout at from the sofa  :)

Hastily assembled Team Thunder has joined the league.
It was a day like any other in Ireland, only it wasn't raining

I'm in. My enthusiasm may last longer than  England did in the World Cup.
There should be an opportunity to rejig the team members everytime there is a rest day.

And not as frequently as the Skoda TdF fantasy league where you get 50 transfers over the 3 weeks.

I'm in  ;D

I like the simplicity of the Velogames version. Pick 9 riders. Sit back. Watch and wait. And get on with other things, like cycling  :thumbsup:

If I had to contend with transfers and associated time-consuming faff, I doubt I'd bother.

Cityoyen, I hope you didn't select your avatar in your team.

As my name was already in use ,I am carrottop, as befits a ginja ninja.
I expect my French riders to perform better on home ground.

My team is currently 1st and 2nd in GC, 1st and 3rd in points, 1st and 2nd in young riders, and has 2 stage wins (but nothing in the mountains).  But the thing I'm most pleased about is that after a lot of deliberation followed by the toss of a coin, I didn't select Mark Cavendish.  It sounds cruel, but 'That's fantasy cycling'.

No, I didn't. Thought about it but he was too expensive. Gutted for him crashing out like that.

A mixed day for nuncteam despite His Nibs' win. Here's hoping that Romain Bardet can step up to fill the Contador gap, and Kittel can make it over the mountains.
