With only a week to go to the end of the Vuelta, are there any plans for the Fantasy Cycling to continue through the season?

Is the Tour of Britain covered, as I don't see it mentioned under the `What's On' tab?

Checking on TV coverage, I see ITV4 are only doing 1 hour highlights. You'd think they would try a little harder to promote a British event, but like the coverage of the London 2012 test, they may tuck it into one corner.

Not sure of SKY/Eurosport cycling coverage, but as SKY gather momentum buying up Pro cyclist, they may put on their own channel sometime

we're pretty much done after the vuelta, just the Montreal GP and the world champs. you'll have to fins something else to do with your time after that, but next year's Fantasy Cycling will be kicking off with the Tour Down Under in January...

what about a lanterne rouge competition next year?

Enter a team - must be a full one - and the team that gets the lowest score wins. I reckon it would actually be harder to play than you think....

Maybe you could get double bonus points if you select a rider who abandons?  3

With the overlap of the Vuelta & the Grand Prix, how do we pick teams?

Very quickly, I think the transfers will close at 11am for the Vuelta and open in the after noon again

I can see new game roster, but can't pick any transfers.

On your team's homepage, click on 'Pick team' to the left.

This will show your current team (greyed out).

Click on the X next to each rider's name to deselect them, then pick the riders you want in for Montreal.
