PROVE YOUR WORLDTOUR KNOWLEDGE – JOIN RBA’S GIRO D’ITALIA VELON FANTASY LEAGUE
Velon has been making pro cycling more accessible for fans with on-board camera footage, rider interviews and race recaps for the last few years. For 2021 Velon launched a Fantasy Cycling game with their own unique twist with prizes on tap for the best roster at the end of the season beginning with the Giro d’Italia this Saturday.
Players pick an 8-rider roster which includes a 2 team leaders, 2 climbers, 2 sprinters and 2 all-rounders. Riders are pre-selected into each specific category by Velon’s analysis of each riders strengths. For example Peter Sagan is in the Class A sprinter category while Vincenzo Nibali is listed in the team leader category.
Once 8 riders are selected and the race begins, players can trade up to 2 riders per day to better build the best team for each stage.
Points are calculated by riders overall standings and finish positions each day, for more specifics check out Velon’s scoring guide.
