Fantasy Giro 2005 - don't miss out!

Brought to you by Wilier Triestina, this year's Fantasy Giro d'Italia game marks the third year of fantasy games at Cyclingnews. Wilier Triestina are offering a team Cofidis Le Roi bike for this year's grand prize. Campagnolo is also offering its record component group to the first runner-up.

More New Prizes

In addition to the main prizes above we have confirmed the following runners-up prizes. This year we have 3 Atmos Fassa Bortolo Team Issue helmets from Giro, Arione saddles including the team Lampre, Liquigas and Barloworld saddles from fi'zi:k, and specially engraved tools from Park Tool. In addition we have just confirmed the following new prizes: Upland Sports are providing three pairs of DMT shoes, a Coaching package from Ric Stern, and a whole suite of goodies from Bontrager (Race X Lite Aero wheels, Race X Lite OS handlebars, a Race XXX Lite OS Carbon stem and a Race X Lite Pro saddle). Go to the prizes section to find out more.

DMT's Kyoma shoe

As worn by Giro favourite Ivan Basso and his CSC team, the Kyoma offers the same overall characteristics as the Flash in a three-Velcro strap-closure system. The heel cup construction includes an external, anti-weakening stiffener for optimal support and stability, and the new SLHC (Super Light Hardened Carbon) sole combines superior energy transfer at minimal weight, available in a Look compatible, three-hole drilling. At a mere 209 grams, the Kyoma sets the bar in lightweight, performance-oriented, carbon road shoes.

New Features

In this year's game you will be able to see a full ranking list and the details of who picked which riders and for which stage. You can use the search feature to find your friends teams and see what they have entered. We have also changed the GC points system this year to be in accordance to the UCI's changes to last year's points system. Now only the top 15 GC riders score points. We hope this will even up the points distribution further.
