Well, we hope everyone enjoyed the Tour Down under as a fascinating Fantasy Cycling season opener. Another overall for Simon Gerrans, and Andre Greipel up to 16 stage wins in the competition overall. Who's walked away with a fantastic prize from Wiggle at the first time of asking?
Top of the pile was Nodes, picking up 1050 points from six stages, an average of 175 points a stage. Impressive. Nodes is a newcomer to the rarified air of the prize places, with their previous best finish 86th equal in the 2013 Clasica San Sebastian. They did everything right this time though, and edged out shaunlinfield (1047 points) and palnure (1033 points) to take the crown. So Nodes wins A dhb kit prize bundle of new range dhb Road cycling Kit worth£500.00, shaunlinfield gets the £250 bundle and palnure gets A selection of Lifeline products worth £125.00.
All our stage winners are listed below, and each will receive A set of dhb triple lens sunglasses worth £29.99. In the tie for the first stage geraldes edged out tfrawley by having eight scoring rider to seven.
Just one other winner to announce, and that's the raffle: A dhb kit prize bundle worth £100.00 to one lucky chump just for playing, chosen at random from everyone who entered a team. And that chump, folks, is markmckirdy. Well done him.
We'll be contacting all winners this week to arrange the prizes. Next up is the Tour of Qatar which begins on 9 Feb; It'll be open this Friday, 31 January. See you then!
