Could you manage the winning team at the Vuelta?

Put your cycling knowledge to the test on the fantasy cycling game, which after a successful first outing at the Tour de France in July, returns for the Tour of Spain, which starts in Valencia tomorrow (Saturday).

The fantasy game allows online managers to pick their preferred line-up of one team leader, two climbers, one sprinter, and five domestiques. However, like any team manager in the real cycling world, managers on the game are constrained by having to work within a set budget.

Where you can have the edge on the likes of Manolo Saiz, Johan Bruyneel and Johnny Weltz is by having the chance to change the members of your team as many times as you want. On flat stages you can load your team with the pick of the sprinters and rouleurs, but then dump the flat stage specialists for the climbers when the race heads up to Sierra Nevada and the Pandera mountain finishes towards the end of the first week.

Next year, the team behind hope to run the game throughout the whole season, and the 2002 Vuelta gives Daily Peloton users the chance to check out the software and practise their tactics before the big prizes we intend to offer next season come up for grabs.

For more details on the game go to and put your nine riders to the test at the 2002 Vuelta!
