    Hey all!

    Giro time is here again. The first of the Grand Tours and almost always the best parcours and racing.

    Not been following cycling as closely as other years but know there's a bumper field for this edition despite no Porte!

    Loads of Colombians up against 'our' Cadel as well as Purito and a host of other challengers.

    Those that played before know the drill.

    For those that don't, it's a set and forget game. Just choose a team within budget before the race and watch it score points throughout the race.

    Any questions don't hesitate to ask!

    My give a little preview once I look over the lists and have enough time.

    For now, good sites for information and news:

    Thanks again P_L for setting this up. I've joined in to get towed along at the back of the peloton!

    I would almost have been better off not entering a team, I threw one together in 3 minutes and was to come back to it, but missed the cut-off...

    Hear hear, the Friday start almost got me as well. It did safe me from a few more team iterations though.

    Kittel abandons and a stage neutralised - it's never dull at the Giro. Have had a quick look at the teams and a lot of different strategies. Much too early to forecast how it will pan out, but happy with Uran, Purito and Quintana with a selection of cut price other riders.

    wow what a result in our comp! Final scores: <p class='tablesorter-header-inner]Nick[span class='Apple-tab-span' style='white-space: pre;] 6467 <p class='tablesorter-header-inner]Cameron[span class='Apple-tab-span' style='white-space: pre;] 6457 <p class='tablesorter-header-inner]Jodie[span class='Apple-tab-span' style='white-space: pre;] 6439 <p class='tablesorter-header-inner] <p class='tablesorter-header-inner]well done - I see that another game is planned to run on the Dauphine. That should be an excellent prelude to planning for the TdeF. Is anybody up for that?

    Yeah wow, that was a close one! Surprised because with JRod I had a great big hole in my team. Bridesmaid once again but not to Jodie this time! Congrats Nick. Tour only 3 weeks away, getting close! (but we may all be distracted too)

    I have still got the bug and relish another chance to test a strategy before the big one - thanks Cam for setting this up. Hopefully velogames will have emailed everyone that the game is on.
