    Up on the Velogames website right now is the statement below. It seems as if George has reached an agreement with the "official" site.

    Dear all,

    I am pleased to report that the legal issue noted on Thursday 5th July has been swiftly and amicably resolved.

    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Hmmm, didn't save my Stage 4 team, so I'll first be in play on Stage 5 - I think I'll still catch and pass penn_rider aka Old Man!

    Edit: Whaaaaaat! Old Man is at the top of our league! What is wrong with you guys? Is the smell of BenGay forcing you all to the back?!

    I'm an absolute Moreon. I thought you changed riders every stage for some reason. My reading comprehension was off when I created my team. Now, I have a bunch of sprinters, no climbers or leaders. Going to see if I can delete team and start over. If not I may build a new one under different email. I will use riders posted earlier in thread that was my velogames team.

    Velogames has set up a go-fund-me page.
    I have donated and hope you all will do the same.

    Congrats to Proninja on his win.

    I came on strong towards the end but couldn't overcome missing the first five stages of the game, still it was fun.

    Next game - new chance to trip Old Man's walker!
