Im down to 7 fit riders after the Majka withdrawal. I was sitting pretty in 30th place at the start of yesterdays stage. Now I'm hoping Matthews and GVA produces some magic in the next 2 weeks.

Wow so I go to pull out the 4 rider who are no longer in the tour from the team and it tells me "Oops, it looks like you didnt pre-select any substitutes"

So basically its saying that the entire thing is screwed for me.

 

Would have been nice if there was something at the initial stages when the team was saved that mentioned substitutes must be pre-selected.

 

So yeah that definitely puts an end to my fantasy league.

In fairness there's a button that says "How It Works"

 

 

The Basics

 

The Fantasy Tour is all about picking your very own Tour de France dream team. You can choose any riders from any team to make up the ultimate virtual team.
 
Pick your squad of 12 riders: 9 active riders and 3 substitutes.
Team submissions close once the Tour begins: at 15h00 SAST on Saturday, 1 July 2017.
Substitutes: On the two rest days during the race you'll have the opportunity to substitute riders. You can drop the non-performers or bring in some fresh legs.
Once substituted, riders can be used again, however points are only allocated while a rider is active.... if they're on the bench you don't score points.

I wasnt too bothered with reading that considering I have done it since it first came out and I dont recall it working like that before.

My league was wrecked after day2 already so Im past the point of caring.

Just ran through the top 10.

 

9 of them have 3 or more scratched riders, so no brainer subs there.

the other guy has 2 scratched riders, so only got one fit guy to leave on the bench.

 

 

Just thinking for next year, maybe more than 3 guys on the bench would allow for more interaction later.

AND

 

I still maintain no subs, fantasy is meant for girls.....  :whistling:

Suggestion from me... study the rules (once available) and how to earn points.

 

The summary I saw a few weeks back is definitely not the same as last year. Not totally new, but missing a few area in which to score points.

It was definitely that way last year.

Substitutions have been in play since 2015, and always pre-picked before the Tour started.

 

This year and last year are very similar, with the exception of a few minor scoring opportunities (break, breakwin, top 10 in the various jersey positions - now only jersey holder).
