The absolute height of cycling geekery; fantasy cycling is taking off in a big way (at the last 'fantasy cycling appreciation society' meeting we had 15 attendees - a new record!) Fantasy Tour de France allows armchair racers to play at being 'Directeur Sportif' for the length of the tour, picking out a 'best in class' team of sprinters and climbers who they think will win stages and jerseys in the 2019 Tour de France. Or, most likely, just pick Sagan like everyone else!
If you're a pro cycling fan, you'll understand the rules of the game and can simply sign up on the link below. If you're new to cycling, or couldn't give a toffee about the pros, we'd still recommend playing along. You will learn more about how a race works, how the peloton operates and why cyclists do some of the weird things that they do! In all seriousness, watching pro cycling will make you a better cyclist, as you get to see the best riders display what riding a bike is actually supposed to look like. To start have a read of our 'Guide to the Tour de France' for some background.
