Éric wins Wilier Triestina Izoard bike
You can find out how to play the Fantasy game first-hand from Éric from Québec (Canada), one of the Grand Prize winners from this year's games.
"Since there were many sprint stages this year and few stages for escapees in the Giro, I picked 6 sprinters using the first stages as a clue to who could perform in the sprints. I tried to pick a few sprinters whom I thought would make it to the end, this makes a big difference in the stage points. Then I picked 9 riders for GC using stage 4 as a reference, but took a chance with Savoldelli which paid off in the end. I didn't bother taking a good climber which wasn't going for GC as many GC contenders/helpers were amongst the best climbers. And I won a great prize with a little luck! Thanks for a great game! Éric"
