Here are the guidelines
you have to follow in order to enter your team for the "4th Fabio's
Fantasy Tour" ("FantasTour 2004") Game:
How To Register
Once you have completed your line-up,
and after choosing your 3 favourite Trade Teams, all you have to do
is enter your Virtual Team.
How? Read these rules, and then click on the link below
Your name and surname (NO vulgarities, NICKNAMES, nonsense or
namesakes - I'd like to see Lance Armstrong, Jan Ullrich, Tony Blair
and Tiger Woods taking part in the game, but I think they have got
something else to do...). Your name is absolutely mandatory, NO
anonymous Virtual Teams will be accepted.
2) Team Name
Please avoid naming your virtual team after websites and existing
commercial products: as this is just a game, there's no place for
advertising or promoting your firm, enterprise, for political
statements, etc. So if you name your team with a domain name, I
won't accept it, sorry. And don't forget that the funniest and most
original name will win the "Best Team Name Award" contest (and get a
prize for that!).
Your E-mail is obligatory, but it won't be used for any commercial
purpose; neither will be made public. In order to avoid fake
entries, the Daily Peloton will email you back to check whether your
e-mail address is correct.
That's obligatory. And your HOMETOWN, if you want to, but this is
not obligatory. I could even make a kind of "country classification"
based on your Virtual Teams.
Select your riders from each one of the 4 drop down lists you can
find in the "Create Fantasy Team" section, by clicking on the names
of your favourite picks. You have to select the members of your
Virtual Team the following way:
1 Rider in the "A" Category;
2 Riders in the "B" Category;
3 Riders in the "C" Category;
3 Riders in the "D" Category.
6) Trade Teams
Click on the names of your 3 selected Trade Teams (one for the "A"
Category, two for the "B" Category) and your choice will be made.
7) Reserves (for Riders only)
Another fundamental topic: we post a list of
participating riders as soon as we get it. But that would hardly be
a definitive one. DON'T FORGET that last minute changes are very
likely to happen. We'll try to keep you updated and change names in
the riders list as soon as we know of any eventual replacements, but
in the meantime you better pick up a RESERVE FOR EACH CATEGORY that would replace any eventual non starter IN THE SAME CATEGORY.
Don't forget to include your rider
reserve selections, as NO follow-up changes to your line-up will be
Be Careful!!! No Late Changes
Be careful while entering your team, as your first line-up will be
the DEFINITIVE one. No follow-up changes (apart from the
replacements of eventual nonstarters WITH RESERVES YOU ALREADY
INCLUDED in your first line-up, or any other correction EXPLICITLY
REQUIRED by the Daily Peloton) will be admitted. In case any of your
team members don't take the startline, but you didn't include any
reserve, you would play with a lesser number of riders.
8) Roster Preview
After you have picked all of your riders and Trade Teams, and filled
all blank spaces in all mandatory fields, check over you personal
information and your virtual team choices in order to see if the
Riders/Trade Teams you picked are the right ones, and avoid any
mistakes. Then hit "Send" to submit your Virtual Team to the "Daily
Maximum Number of Virtual Teams
Only a maximum of 300 Virtual Teams will be accepted. In case this
number is achieved, no more teams will be accepted. So please enter
just ONE team per person and leave the chance to take part in the
game to the other ones too.
