What's Fantasy Cycling?
It's easy! just pick a team of riders, and if they do well you'll get points. The player with the most points at the end is the winner!
Okay, it's not quite that straightforward. There's a bunch of different things you can get points for, it's not just about who's first over the line. And you can make transfers between stages to optimise your team for the terrain. There's plenty to think about. But the basics are easy to master. Why not have a go?
