Dr. Do Little shares his secrets
Fantasy Manager Dr. Do Little from Florida shares his tactics on his prize winning form this year. He won the Grand Prize of a Specialized S-Works Roubaix SL bicycle in Quick Step - Innergetic colors in the Spring Classics game, and won a pair of Tifozi glasses in the Giro d'Italia game Daily Stage competition. To win a Daily Stage prize you just need to get the most cumulative Stage points in the game for that particular stage. There are 21 winners in each Grande Tour game. You can do this without having to pay to play the game in the first 3 stages:
"My 'secret' is to select a team with riders who have scored well so far, and take into account what kind of stage the next stage is (sprint stage, climb stage, etc.). Stage 4 was a climbers' stage, so some who had already scored well were 'bumped' to make way for riders who climb well. I was lucky in my selection, as the riders I selected 'on the come' did well.
Daily selection like this helps to finalize your team(s), as you can experiment with different combinations and see how they change day to day. Of course, it also leads to more uncertainty about what to do!" Manager Dr. Do Little
If you play the 2007 le Tour game you could win a Cervelo Soloist Carbon bike. The full details of the specifications of this bike will be released shortly.
