It’s time for fantasy cycling to become part of the club 10 car park narratives for the next month as a number of games launch ahead of the Grand Depart.
I am an addict so play the Procyclingstats star allocation game (a la Het Nieuwsblad), I also play their stocks and shares trading game Procycling-game (despite being terrible at it).
For the Tour de France 2022 though I am putting my all into the Velogames competition (sorry official Tissot Le Tour one) and would love you to do the same.
This isn’t an endorsement of the game (officially) and I am getting no benefit from promoting it… just to make that clear.
Now I am sure that each and every one of you reading would have a different view of who to pick and where to spend the 100 EUR budget. Heck reading the news I might still substitute Wout Van Aert if his knee is broken.
But the whole idea is to add fun to the three weeks of the Tour and a bit of depth of interest when watching.
So please do pick a team (its free and if you have a social media account you don’t have to go through any registering process) and join in. I am sure you will have the skills to finish above me !
Whilst their remains a risk that a lot of upcoming races might be cancelled as a result of Covid 19, I am still busily predicting what I can to take my mind of global viral epidemics.
The last update I gave was about the riders I had picked the most over the life of the game (which is free to play by clicking here). However I have started the season in reasonable form based on my previous efforts.
So I am currently picking 1 in three winners and here are my picks for the opening Belgian Classics… wish me luck.
My logic being that G VA will be in fine form after the training races in Southern Europe and after the windy conditions of Saturday we might have a sprint on Sunday.
