1st "Fabio's Fantasy Spring": Liége-Bastogne-Liége to come in the "Daily Peloton": A new leg of "Fabio's Fantasy Spring" game is going to take place in the next week-end. After Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix, it's time for the fourth and penultimate rendez-vous with the contest linked to the UCI World Cup races, which in its first three "stages" had more than 165 participants from several different countries.
Once again you the readers have the chance to send your "Virtual Teams" and compete for the (virtual as well) Overall Title if you registered for the first race of the series ("Fantasy Milan-San Remo"), or for the SINGLE RACE Victory if you missed the opening leg of the contest, but nonetheless still wanna test your skills as "Virtual Team Manager". Several "new entries" went for the stage victory only in the last two races, and Les Nadon of the U.S. got it in the "Fantasy Tour of Flanders".
But you'd better hurry, as ONLY the FIRST 50 NEW VIRTUAL TEAMS will be accepted. Should that number be achieved, no more new teams would be accepted, and since that moment just previously registered participants would be allowed to post their Virtual Squad for the fourth part of "Fabio's Fantasy Spring".
If you wanna know all the details and rules of the game, just click on the "Fantasy Games" link on the left side of the screen, then go tho the DIFFERENT SECTIONS (Rules, Points, Riders, Trade Teams, Registration Form etc.).
IMPORTANT: In the coming leg of the game, you are allowed to send ONE DEFINITIVE TEAM only. If you send two or more teams, only the First one will be accepted. If you send SUCESSIVE PICKS to replace your first choices, they WON'T BE ACCEPTED any longer !!! But never forget to include some RESERVES in your virtual team, so that they may replace eventual nonstarters in your line-up .
Entries for the new race will be open as soon as the new riders and trade teams lists, as well as the New "Registration Form" page, are available. That could be on Thursday evening or Friday. Entries sent BEFORE it, or AFTER the DEADLINE, won't be accepted, just like it happened in the past three times.
DEADLINE: You will be able to enter your Virtual Team for "Fantasy Liége-Bastogne-Liége" until:
Sunday, April the 21st at 10AM Italian Time, which is :
