    froome seems free to ride on, i thought his case was up soon?

    as far as i can make it out, the extra salbutamol is itself no major performance enhancement

    but the 2xLimit suggests a possible blood bag infusion with an inherent miscalculation over the accumulation of salbutamol

    guess we'll never know

    @amir, you are free to pick him but all his titles including fantasy tour competitions will be stripped

    Froome cleared

    Can't see how ASO can stop him competing, but I don't think that will be the end of it. Can see the French public getting involved...

    so it was 19% over the limit, not 200% ?

    does this mean its ok to be 20% over permissable limits ?

    not a lot of clarity here

    7 extra puffs not 70? So maybe not a fresh bag of blood maybe asthma?

    Just trying a different record in my Froomey Disco

    Oh, here is my old record now - This is going to be Lance all over again.

    i triumphed in last years fantasy CCE grand tours with froome as my main man (1 and 2)

    but vc craiglockhart took the honours in the giro this year and he was entirely froomless

    so it can be done, we should reflect on this

    Just saw that velogames has been shut down. Legal issues apparently.

    Legal issues over stripping all points from Froomey backers?

    is eurosport fantasy cycling still on?

    You have to wonder what the story is.

    george says "Due to a recent legal claim, entries into the current Fantasy Grand Tour game are currently suspended until further notice"

    note that he only says "entries" are currently suspended

    i notice the leagues and teams and everything are still there, so he might update the points daily anyway

    the situation is becoming clearer

    there's now an "official" non-velogames fantasy league

    https://fantasy.letour.fr/

    they've copied velogames but apparently the points system is not so good

    "At each stage, you will have to select a Road Captain : his points will be doubled at each stage! Make the right choice every day!"

    ffs i don't live behind a keyboard every day, mate

    Earn the most points possible by selecting your team of cyclists (8 riders) to start the race. Then, you will have 1 change available at each rest day during the Tour de France 2018 to adjust your strategy.

    (and you choose your road captain daily, from your existing team, and his points total doubles on the day)

    well i've re-created my team at the official place

    there's a "Fantasy CCE" league created, with password H155U to enter your team

    what rubbish. how can they just steal someone else's system and then shut it down. have they shut down all the other 'unofficial' fantasy sites too? or are they big enough to pay them off (e.g. eurosport).

    agreed, its a mess for this to happen on the eve of the race

    there's more ongoing team strategy required at the official fantasy site but the points allocated are weird and some riders are not pickable

    I don't know if the legal issues have come from Le Tour but I'm protesting by not entering their "Official" fantasy.
