Win a £600 KHS road bike + £400 runner up prizes too!

It's Tour de France time again. The one race that transcends all cycling boundaries is rolling into Rotterdam for the Grand Départ on July 3 and you can be a part of it… well, virtually. Thanks to road.cc and www.cyclesurgery.com you can have a go at being a Directeur Sportif in the 2010 Tour, and what's more you could walk away with a road bike worth £600!

So, who'll be in your team? All eyes on this side of the Channel will be focused on Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish: will we have a British jersey winner this year? And if it was your team, would you pick them? Maybe you'd rather have a Contador or maybe a Schleck or two… and let's not forget Lance. Pick your team and enjoy all the drama, anxiety and excitement of the world's greatest bike race, minus the sweat.

The road.cc Fantasy Tour de France game is very simple: pick your nine riders from the starting roster and they'll be awarded points based on their performance in the race. And it's not just about the big jerseys: riders will score for running loose in breakaways, helping a team mate to a stage win, showing a bit of fight – and even rolling in last! After each stage you'll be able to make two substitutions so you can keep on top of the riders' highs and lows, and the player with the most points after the Champs-Elysées showdown will be crowned king of the road. Do you have what it takes to put together a top team? Now's your chance to find out!

Top bike retailer CycleSurgery have 20 stores nationwide and a great new online presence at www.cyclesurgery.com, and they've come up with a fantastic prize pot for the game worth £1000. The outright winner will receive a brand new KHS Flite 300 road bike – exclusive to CycleSurgery – worth £600, and ten runners up will get a high quality CycleSurgery jersey made by Endura, worth £40. There's everything to play for, so head over to the Fantasy Tour page and get picking! The game is open now.

Glad you asked that gandberg, in the event of a draw we will take the total points of your final team, and then we'll go back through the stages until somebody wins.

Can you set up a mini-league? Always more fun if you can automatically lump your team together with workmates etc.

mini league would be good. Its also a shame that David Millar is 12 points, I thought 6 points would be much fairer....  3
