POINT BONUS FOR VIRTUAL TEAMS

Besides earning points from the daily results of their selected Riders and Trade Teams, Fantasy Game players will be awarded more points thanks to their placing in each "Virtual Stage". Just like actual riders are often awarded time bonuses when they get into the stage Top 3 places, so Virtual Teams will earn additional "Bonus Points" in case they manage a Top 3 finish in any "Virtual leg", Team Time Trial included.

- 2nd: The runner-up (second place finisher) in every stage is awarded 10 further Points.

Very Important!

Any rider who should fail an anti-doping test (or being excluded from the TdF because of doping-related reasons, just like it happened in the 2002 Giro d'Italia) DURING the race will immediately LOSE ALL of his POINTS in the Riders Ranking. (His TRADE Team will not be punished in the Trade Teams' Classification though). This sanction wouldn't apply to riders disqualified due to disciplinary reasons, like Francesco Casagrande in the same 2002 Tour of Italy.
