    Velogames is gone!

    I saw masontís post... Our league, the whole game, gone. I documented my riders and values. Iíll post it Saturday. Why not. I donít know how to score the game but Iím still interested to see how my picks work out. If anyone is interested, feel free to join me.

    We can try something. Although I don't remember all the riders I had picked.

    Cyclingnews has a games section and they do a game using the CQ points.

    I won't be doing one on the Tours site after this.

    One of the stupidest things I have seen in this sport, right up there with the Cafe Roubaix cease and desist letter. Way to make us all like you less ASO....

    This sucks! Saves me unending embarrasment, but sucks any way.

    I don't remember my picks really - No Froome, of that I'm sure.
    Porte, Tommy D., Sagan and Nibali were there, but I can't recall the rest.

    I have also decided I am staying the course with Velogames and will just play the games they run. He has my support 100%. If others are interested, let me know and I will set the next one up (or someone else can and I will commit to playing). Kiss my hiney ASO.

    Other groups have copied the point system from the site and are tracking it themselves.

    ASO - After making a good call on Froome forcing the UCI to get the job done, lost a lot of goodwill with this move - so petty!

    Grudgingly - I've created a team on https://fantasy.letour.fr/ instead.

    Hi folks, Velogames is back up and we are going to try to get the next few games going again. Feel free to set it up yourself if you see the entry open before I do and I will join in on your thread. Looking forward to it and I hope we can get the band back together again.
