Buckle up folks, it's time for the big one. The Tour de France kicks off in a little over a week and as usual it'll be the biggest fantasy cycling game of the year on road.cc. And you can win a set of dhb Aeron LAB kit if you end up top of the pile.
If you haven't played our Fantasy Cycling game before then it's simple: pick a team of riders you think will do well and you'll score points if they do. And if you get enough points, then you win! You can either play against the whole of the road.cc Fantasy Cycling community or you can create a mini league for your friends/family/work colleagues/cycling club/etc. There are bragging rights to be secured as well as prizes!
There are three different competitions for the Tour de France. The standard game gives you a limited number of transfers, so if riders get injured, or fall ill, or are just crap, you can transfer them out. With the Purist competition you get one go at picking your team: once the race starts, that's it. So make it count! As well as the normal purist competition there's one just featuring the French riders for a bit of extra fun.
The winner of the standard and purist Tour de France comps will each receive a jersey and shorts from the dhb Aeron LAB collection. There's a choice of Raceline and Ultralight kit, and it's available for men and women. There's a speedsuit if you're super keen, and we'll even lob some socks in. How about that? We can't guarantee your legs will look as good as those pins in the pic above though.
It's simple to get involved:
Play for free!
You can play up to eight competitions for free, every season. If you get the Fantasy Cycling bug then it's only a tenner to play as many as you want for a whole year. You can upgrade to premium at any time during the season.
