Only days left to join
It's not too late to join in the fun at this year's Fantasy game. You can join until stage 6 begins (12th May) and there is no disadvantage in joining after the Giro has begun. The full prize list for this year's Fantasy Giro game here at Cyclingnews has been confirmed. Here's some top tips from team manager "Probert" from Nevada (USA) who won in last year's Giro with team "(OLN 4) Obnoxios Lance Network":
"The key was not to focus on the point value of the riders as my number 1 priority, but rather research how different riders where performing in the early season. My team was very well rounded between GC riders, sprinters, and KOM contenders. Cheers have fun. Probert".
