I’m not really sure why I’m doing this, but one thing is clear; I must think I have a lot of free time on my hands! ‘Thanks’ to regular reader Roan, I am going to force a silly (but fun!) game onto all of you.
It’s ‘Fantasy Cycling’, and for those out there who are fanatic sports fans (NOT me until this morning, it appears) you’ll know what this is all about. The idea is to create your own ‘dream team’ by ‘buying’ riders from a list and keeping within your ‘budget’ (100 points in this case). Name your team, then watch how you do throughout the season (in this case, the Classics season, which starts tomorrow).
I just created my own team, but also a ‘mini league’ that anyone can join. Here’s how to go about doing it all, if you are sitting in front of the computer doing nothing (but probably should be working, if you’re like me…).
1. Go to Velogames and click on Enter Fantasy Classics Now.
2. Follow the directions and create your team.
3. If you’d like to join my ‘league’, go to your already-created team page and scroll down till you see the ‘join league’ thing – bottom right. Click on one of the links and enter 16092322, the code to my league – Languedoc.
Then, let the games begin!
