With five stages to go at the 2016 Tour de France after the second rest day, including summit finishes at Finhaut-Emosson and Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc and a mountain time trial, it’s all still to play for.
Which means the race to be crowned RCUK Fantasy Tour de France 2016 champion is still very much alive with “JENKIN ROAD” leading the battle to win a Merlin Roc 2017 Road Bike worth £1,120.
And even if you are out of the running for the overall prizes, with the final weekly prize of a £10 gift voucher still to play for there’s plenty up for grabs – not least because the next four stages are all ‘category one’, and therefore worth 50 per cent more points.
So how can you turn your team from nearly-rans to champions? What do you need to do to bag the great prizes on offer from Merlin Cycles?
Here’s a round-up of how the Tour de France’s best have been racking up the points so far.
