Tour De France Velogames- Rules On The Fly

We now have 14 teams registered in the JBarCycling MiniLeague. As the result of the actions of a certain unscrupulous lawyer (Actually, he's a VERY scrupulous lawyer, none finer, but looking for an edge in Velogames), I am going to ask that participants limit themselves to 1 team in the JBarCycling League. The fine folks at CARVE have offered some swag, as has Spokes Bike Shop. I'm going to see if any of the other shops would like to participate, as well, so there is  a little more at stake than bragging rights.
Bob Fegtly won the prized JBarCycling coffee mug last year and Bob is back to try again!
If you want to field a number of teams, you can enter them in the open leagues on the site or even form a league of your own.

UPDATE:APPARENTLY VELOGAMES LIMITS PLAYERS TO ONE TEAM.
That keeps me from having to be a rules guy!

I'm just trying to be fair and keep the scoring as easy as possible. Besides, I can see a massive escalation if this is not nipped in the bud.

Log on to Velogames. Sign up. Pick your team. Join the JBarCycling League.
It adds another level of fun to Tour watching.

I perceive a conspiracy to change the rules in the middle of the game and thus deprive me of my rights. I encourage all of my fellow tea partiers to resist this unwarranted restriction on liberty and freedom.

Oh get over it.

Well said, anonymous2. At least I'm not trying to redefine the Constitution or determine that corporations are people. I'm just attempting to provide a safe, fair environment for a friendly competition in which I think my carefully selected team will kick ass.

Whoa! Their website is not working very well...I will wait until tomorrow to fill out my selections.
It doesn't ask for a league when you select your riders...this is filled in later on???

Rob, after you get your riders selected, you click the "Visit Team" button. At the bottem is a "League manager" tab that allows you to join leagues. This is also where you can make rider changes up until Saturday.
This year, opposing teams' riders are not visible until the start. I like that, so folks won't be jumping on my winning selections.
I've had no problems with the site this year, but have had reports of issues. We're up to 11 teams in the league so far.

I'm having problems with the league code. It doesn't recognize Jbarcycling.

David said...

Never mind. I found the league code in your previous post.

I'm in the pool!

My team is prepared to kick some serious ass! ;-)
