    I'm still not fully happy with my team, but I'm also at the point of just giving up and going with what I've got. As long as they all make it to Paris in one piece I'll be happy. Yes, I'm sure you all know whom one of the riders on my team is. LOL

    Looks like the game just got taken down

    Due to a recent legal claim from an official organisation, entries into the current Fantasy Grand Tour game are currently suspended until further notice.

    It is fair to say I am absolutely gutted about this turn of events, but do not want to comment further until the situation progresses.

    At present it is looking unlikely that the current Fantasy Grand Tour game will go ahead as planned.

    Many apologies for this news, but it is for the best for my family and finances.

    Yours in fantasy cycling, George

    This is ridiculous. Guess the ASO doesn't want fantasy games for the Tour for some reason.

    I'm running for a plane and don't have time to look into it now, but there's another fantasy league just opened up on Velon. Maybe someone could take a look? I think it's at www.velon.cc or something like that. I glanced briefly and it's kind of slick looking.

    It looks to be officially branded - given the ASO blessing? Seems it started on July 3rd, and might be behind, at least in part, the closing of Velogames. It's a guess...

    I can’t get on, I couldn’t get past the picture requirement? I tried all kinds of pics. The pop up is in French... Any suggestions?

    the velon.cc site cross-populates with https://fantasy.letour.fr

    Pretty sure we got ourselves a reason

    Well, I’m in... I messed up all kinds of ways, I played with my roster like on Velogames and I killed all my trades. In doing so I also wound up with a team a little off from what I wanted to do... It all kind of stinks...

    That said, I hope some more of y’all join!

    Ditto. Surprised most aren't doing this. Not even remotely judgy, just legitimately surprised seeing that many of us are curmudgeonly over less.

    For the record, I will NEVER play the official Velon (or any officially authorized) game. Talk about taking yourself too seriously. This freaking ridiculous. I am kind of starting to hate pro cycling at the moment. What a mess.
    Every climb has its end, for verily with difficulty there is relief...

    Having poked around the site a bit now, it seems like Velogames light. It's clearly modeled after Velogames, but lacking some of the features. On my mobile, it's been frustrating to navigate - maybe better from a laptop.

    I agree, it appears to have been hastily put together and released at the last minute. Graphics look great and it has a polished look, but it's crude in comparison. I do like the features allowing you to double points on a key guy, as well as substituting one guy in/out on the rest days.

    They should have just made Velogames the official fantasy league for Velon and slid him funds for additional development. No need to shut down a guy that's been driving fan support and interest.

    Very disappointing. I dislike losing every fantasy tour but at least it added something to the enjoyment of watching the racing. For the record, I had Gaviria so I win 😁

    I'm in. Missed a couple of stages but wouldn't have made a difference based on my track record. So, It appears you can swap players every stage?

    thanks for setting up the league

    My man! I'll have my riders get flats, drop gears, etc so you can catch up.
