Fantasy TDF

Got bored during my funemployment. If anyone wants to join a league it makes each stage a bit more fun to watch. Maybe @AaronWebstey could throw some pot brownies in as a prize.

    One TriRoost.com t-shirt to the winner! So this contest serves a dual purpose, as I now have to get off my ass and finalize the t-shirt design. Thanks for this @College_Tri !

    Do we have to create an account first to get into the League you created?

    If someone happens to see a league called Triroost but has my name on it disregard it. I was trying to log in the league College Tri created but somehow created my own league?

    My plan is to pick whomever Uli hates the most these days, and assume they have the best motors and drugs.

    What's the best way to watch TdF if you've cut your cable (from US)? I've watched a few races via cyclingfans.com but that will get very old after a few days. Should I go with a VPN blocker? Is Tunnelbear still one to try or something else? Or should I suck it up and buy the NBCSports package? Curious what other people are doing.

    I think NBC Sports sells a TDF bundle that lets you watch video online and on their app.

    Since this is posted publicly, get the NBCSports package. It's the best coverage option here, allowing you to replay stages and such. Plus, the cycling pass is $40 for the year. If you only want the TDF, getting a month of Fubo, sling, pstv or the like might be an okay option. Or check out the Reddit cycling page: https://www.reddit.com/r/peloton/

    How is Nairo Quintana not in the "all rounder" category??

    Thanks. I didn't realize the $40 package was for a year of coverage. I thought it was just TdF. I went ahead and purchased. Easiest path. Is it any wonder I just finally cut my cable 6 months ago? heh. If nothing else, it will be fun to hear Paul correct Phil again this year. Last year's coverage was pretty comical with all the corrections and Paul's exasperation on the really long stages. I liked Christian VDV's stage previews too.

    If you can live without Phil, or can speak French, the French TV coverage is pretty good. It might help if your computer is in France, or at least looks like it is (VPN).

    He's lost more than one grand tour based on his inability to time trial.

    4 of top 8 after the TT are Team SKY, what a joke. #marginalgains

    Minus Froome today (i'll leave my thoughts to myself on that one although i know he's a great time trialist), Quintana was right in the pack with the remaining GC contenders. he's a GC contender for sure regardless and was announced as Movistar's GC guy even before Valverde went down.

    I don't think he can last for 3 weeks. Seems every year he's got nothing in the tank to attack when he needs to.

    i agree he won't win. i just thought it was odd he wasn't listed as a GCer in the fantasy league. i went with Porte. That was dumb.

    Probably more to do with fantasy scoring than anything in that regard

    @Evan , Porte doesn't seem a dumb pick..... I'm sure hoping he does well.
    Evan

  • Options
    I also went with Porte. Froome was an obvious pick but with what he cost you'd really have to nail some "cheaper" guys. That's mostly an assumption because I didn't look at scoring at all but assumed picking 4 top 10 guys would outscore a winner.
