Has anyone had a bet on this yet?

I prefer gambling on stage winners, but I took some 11/4 about Froome as soon as he was confirmed to be riding. There’s a few I like in the each way race but I’m still scarred by the Aru meltdown last year!

Stage wins definitely the right way to go from a betting prospective.

So basically velogames TdF isn’t happening. Seems like a copyright thing or whatever as he’s not even been able to name the event in his statement.
Hope this doesn’t mean people jump to the “official” game that has caused this to happen

I've gone for Roglic EW (4 places) and G.Martin for top 10.

Gutted about Velogames if they can't put it on.

Given the Velogames Giro Rosa is still available it is all about the TdF and not velogames generally.

I wonder on what basis they can stop it though as lots of people do Fantasy Football teams, its not just limited to the PL site.

i have signed up to the point of taking a look.

The have basically ripped off Velogames with 100 credits (although for 8 riders and different values) You can make a change on each of the rest days, points doubled for your road captain and no change in the points for the TTT so i guess your rider has to be in the top 25 times to count.

Not as well thought through but its presentation and interface is a lot better.

Gutted too.
The TDF people have well and truly ripped off Velogames.
I blame Sky.

#Free Velogames is alive on twitter.

I signed on to the AOS game to have a look and they do have a contact button.

This is the reply I received.

'Thanks for your message.

We are really sorry and saddened by this situation. We are in the middle of the battle, and we truly hope that Velogames and ASO will find an agreement.

As you can imagine, ASO is defending his trademark (and we can understand it).

We hope the situation will be improved very soon, but we are of course out of all the discussions.

We'd like to keep you onboard and hope you'd enjoy our game!

Best regards,
Fantasy Tour de France's Team'

AOS also administer the vuelta.

A couple of bets I’ve been eyeing.

Jungels top 10 - 2/1

Fuglsang top 5.

I feel like the second could be an awful move!

I've gone Pierre Latour top 10 after facing the regret of not putting on Uran and Barguil last year.Will be touch and go though and more likely top 15.

The Velogames situation is depressing.

I went down the Skybet route of chucking loads of little variations together to get 4 bets made up!

Froome to win the TDF, Sagan green jersey, Bernal white jersey and Barguil to finish top 3 in KOM - 14/1

Quintana top 3, Roglic, Yates and Fuglsang top 10. Barguil, Gaviria and Sagan to win a stage - 40/1

Froome, Sagan, Bardet, Gaviria, De Gendt to win a stage and Quintana to finish highest of the Movistar team - 40/1

Quintana to finish top 3, Fuglsang to finish top 5, Jungels top 10, Bardet to win a stage, Gaviria to win 3 stages - 100/1

I know this part of France very well. With loads of friends we used to rent a house at La Faute-sur-Mer which is right next to Aiguillon-sur-Mer. We must have gone there at least 12 times between about 1990 and 2010. Three of us had our bikes and we used to meet up with cyclists from a club at La Tranche-sur-Mer who welcomed holidaymakers for a parcours three times a week starting at around 100km up to some longer ones (I think I did 190km one day!). I know the roads from as north as Saint-Jean-de-Monts down to the finish. The coastal roads are lovely to ride on though admittedly there was often a lot of traffic when we were riding them. Our peloton was often 50+ strong so we didn't always make a lot of friends on the road. The peloton will have nothing to worry about today except if there is a bit of wind blowing.
I'm looking forward to going back to the Vendée region since madame kabbott's brother's in-laws have a place at Brem-sur-Mer. I little invite there would gladly be accepted!

Bon Tour everybody!

From a Velogames point of view, it might still be interesting if everyone posted their team so that we could still share a bit of banter about the results!

First time I've joined and maybe the last? I imagine the Vuelta and Giro may well follow down the corporate control road.

FWIW Pippa Yorke's Allstars Sky-heavy fledgling team was as follows

G Thomas
W Poels
M Landa
R Majka
M Kittle
G Moscon
G Van Avermaet
