RoadCyclingUK Fantasy Tour of Britain launches

The 2013 Tour of Britain’s star-studded start list includes Sir Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish and Alex Dowsett – but who will be in your RoadCyclingUK Fantasy Tour of Britain dream team?

Our third fantasy game of the year gives you the chance to hand-pick a six-rider squad for Britain’s premier race.

We’ve teamed up with dare2b to give you the chance to win a ride with 2006 Tour de France champion Oscar Pereiro, co-designer of the clothing manufacturer’s signature collection.

Win the chance to ride with a Tour de France champion

The top scoring directeur sportif after eight stages of racing will also win £300 of dare2b clothing, tickets to this month’s Cycle Show in Birmingham and a selection of Juice Lubes products.

The RoadCyclingUK reader who finishes second overall will also walk away with £300 of dare2b clothing, while the virtual directeur sportif of the team that finishes third will win £100 of the British firm’s clothing to add to the wardrobe.

All you have to do is head to and pick your star team.

How to play

Will Wiggins spearhead your line-up? Or is Movistar’s Nairo Quintana, who finished second behind Chris Froome at the Tour de France, the man for the job? Will the stage three individual time trial prove decisive in deciding the general classification?

You can make unlimited team changes until the start of the opening stage on Sunday September 15, and once the race is underway you can make up to three transfers to your team between stages and a maximum of ten in total.

Once you’ve picked your race-winning line-up, invite your friends and rivals to compete in your own private league.

Pick your six-rider dream team for Britain’s premier race

Points are awarded to the top 20 riders on each stage with bonus points on offer for being part of a stage-winning squad and for claiming or retaining the lead in an overall classification. The stages have been split into two categories with 50 per cent more points awarded for the most difficult and important days in the saddle.

Make sure you study the way riders score points to develop a winning strategy (you can read the full rules here).

Good luck!
