Tour de France fantasy league
I know you’re all dying to know how our Tour de France Fantasy League is shaping up. Here’s the situation after nine exciting stages on the eve of the first rest day:
First of all, Richie Porte crashed out, once again making the game tip “Richie Porte will never win a grand tour” seem pretty sage. Greg Van Avermaet was a good pick, as was Peter Sagan (no surprise there), and those of you who picked Fernando Gaviria instead of Sagan for your team didn’t do too badly either. Jaime, Mike, and Ferris the cat all picked different sprinters than those two, so their teams aren’t doing so well.
Simon’s Skymon team is in the lead thanks to massive points collected in the team time trial stage, but Kiel and Sebby’s teams are really close in second and third place. Patrick’s Kelly Benefits team moved up to 4th following the cobblestone stage, and Keith’s team is still in 5th place.
The standings at the first rest day:
Kid Sebefredo: 425
Kelly Benefits: 420
Jittery Joe: 348
Dimension Dave: 302
Lotto Nakata: 301
Team SunGlenn: 291
Lantern Mike: 226
