|3rd FABIO'S FANTASY TOUR
Here are the guidelines you have to follow to enter your
team for the "3rd Fabio's Fantasy Tour" Game ("FantaSTour2003"):
How To Register - Registration is now
Once you have completed your line-up, and after choosing
your 2 favourite Trade Teams, all you have to do is register.
How? Just by going to the Create Fantasy Team link below
and entering the following:
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
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, political statement, etc. So if you name
your team with a domain name, I'm afraid 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 probably get a prize for that) .
Your E-mail is obligatory, but it won't be used for any commercial
purpose; neither will it be made public. In order to avoid fake entries, the
Daily Peloton will email you back to check whether your e-mail address is
Obligatory. And YOUR HOMETOWN, if you want, but this is not obligatory.
I could even make a kind of "country classification" based on your Virtual
5) Riders Choices
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
1 Rider in the "A" Category;
3 Riders in the "B" Category;
3 Riders in the "C" Category;
2 Riders in the "D" Category.
6) Trade Teams Choices
When on the the "Create Fantasy Team" page, just click on the names of
your 2 selected Trade Teams (one for each category) and your choice will be
7) Reserves (for Riders only)
Another fundamental topic: We'll 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
informed and change names in the list as soon as we get to know of riders
replacements, but in the meantime you'd better pick up to 2 RESERVES FOR
EACH CATEGORY, that would replace any eventual non starter IN THE SAME
The ORDER in which you list your reserves is important for
eventual substitutions. Just click on the names of the substitutes in the
drop down list. Don't forget to include rider replacements, as NO follow-up
changes to your line-up will be accepted.
Important!!! No Late Changes Permitted
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 shouldn'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 chosen all of your riders and Trade teams, and fill all
blank spaces in all mandatory fields, just click on "Preview" and you'll get
access to a new page, where you'll have the chance to check your team
rosters once again, in order to see if the riders/Trade Teams you picked are
the right ones, and avoid any mistakes. Then a further click would send your
team to the "Daily Peloton".
Please be careful to click on the right names when entering
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 others the chance to take part in the game.

Don't forget to check back to the Daily Peloton after registering your
team. We'll let you know if there's something wrong in your selection, so
that you may make any needed correction in time. We may post messages
mentioning all corrections needed either in the Fantasy Game
Message Board or (more likely) the
Daily Peloton's Main Page
(perhaps in the "Just In" section). Just have a look at both of them!!
You also have the chance to win a prize in this edition of the Fantasy Game!
The overall winner will receive a DVD of Jamie Paolinetti's cycling
Hard Road. The second and third place podium places, and the Best
Team Name, will receive a Daily Peloton T-Shirt.
