Join Hans and I in our (HUGE WASTE of TIME) fantasy cycling league appropriately named 'Bicicleteiros' on http://versus.com
It's free to join, but you'll need a US address and phone number (Canada will probably do) since Versus is a US-based service. Hans entered last year and says you can win stuff!
The way it works is you get to pick 15 riders, of whom you can rotate in and out of the race for different stages. So, you are the coach, and just like hockey or NFL football you get to bench people (which is really helpful in the event of a crash or a doping positive). You also have a budget (salary cap).
Hans is ready to coach us and give advice as he learned a lot of the tricks of how to play the game last year through trial and error.
You can start adding riders from Monday, and of course the Tour itself begins on the 4th of July. I will be coaching team 'NFTOS' while Hans is in charge of Team Accentor (named after the alpine accentor, a bird species that lives in the high mountains).
Come race the Tour with us!
