What does Volkler have to do to score points?

by rob2jim   July 6, 2011  

The points system for Fantasy Cycling seems a bit perverse. I'm looking for a listing of how points are allocated. Is it simply order of finish and at the sprints plus bonus points for jerseys? Guys in the breaks get zip(p) Sick

If you click on the stage link it explains all the points; breakaways get points through doing well at the intermediate sprint but Voeckler's break came late in the stage after that so got him nothing, in reality or fantasy, (except kudos).

I think by the way he is riding, the only way is to drop half an hour on a stage then be last in the GC, 10 points a day, then he might be allowed to go in break aways Devil

the break gets the intermediate sprint points, lika alan says, and intermediate climbs too. And someone'll get 10pts for the red number.

Voeckler was only off the front for about 10km; ballsy riding but ultimately not a great move...

Yes, he was at it again today I think. I think I'll transfer him out until he drops some more time. Pick him up again after the first mountains stages are over Thinking

Fortunately I kept him (Volkler) and brought in Sandy Casar when Wiggins went home - nice points for Sunday then Smile
