You might not be getting that bike, but you could still win a road.cc tee...

You might be rueing your missed chances and botched transfers right now with the dream of walking off with first place and a shiny new bike in tatters. We know we are, not that we're allowed to win the bike of course but you know what we mean. Anyway, starting tomorrow you've got a chance to reclaim a bit of pride, as we're going to be handing out a spot prize on every stage from here to the Champs Elysées!

That's right, even if you're languishing in mid table you could stil walk off with the day's prize if you get a spot of luck. Today's top scorer was in the mid-300s in the big league and on Saturday it could be you, so get your thinking hat on and get your transfers sorted for the long, flat (ish) road to Revel.

Unless we say otherwise, the spot prize will be awarded for the highest scoring team on the stage, and the prize will be a freshly minted (so fresh they haven't actually arrived yet) road.cc tee, but we might think of some other ways to pick the winner too. If two or more teams are tied, then the following criteria will be used to determine the winner:

  • The highest scoring rider
  • The number of scoring riders
  • The team value (lowest wins)
  • The combined total scores of all the riders
  • The office random number generator

Okay? so get picking. First prize for biggest points haul on Stage 13 on Saturday. We'll announce the winner as soon as we've filled in the big score spreadsheet and fed it into the cogs that make the game work.
