I'm pretty sure i've won stage 9 of the TDF. I've waited a few days to see if I recieve an email, but haven't heard anything yet. Having never won before I'm not really sure how it works, do we hear when the tour has finished?

Just saw Dave's note here about TDF prizewinners notification to be sent out early August. I finished 3rd in the TDF and understand first place wins a bike, and "runners up" win a Lazer helmet and eyewear. Since I finished third, and website says "runners up" (plural), I understand I won a Lazer helmet and eyewear. Have not received an email yet.

Thanks, Dave.

Actually, I think this is my bad. rcorbin just forwarded me the email you sent on July 31 to he and I re the TDF runners up prizes. It must either have gone to my spam box or I accidentally deleted it.

So, I am all set and will get back to you shortly with colors and sizing.

I appreciate all the hard work you guys put in. This is a very entertaining and addictive game and extremely well run.

Thanks again.

Hi Dave, I have won three stages this year, but I don't know if there were prizes for those races. I never got any happy emails. Crying The stages were Algarve stages 3 and 4 (tied with TERatcliff on stg 3), and stage 4 of Trentino.
Love the game, prizes or not, but wooeee prizes are nice!

Have loved playing the game, it's been an amazing ride thank you, but could do with something to show for my considerable hours of effort before my husband threatens to divorce me. Will there be any prizes for regional league winners? Have won nothing yet, but still hanging in there hopefully for Scotland/Glasgow & West league ...
