Posted by Editor on 03/25/09
 

A couple of riders were inadvertently left off the Quick Step rider list (which came from the Quick Step site): Sylvain Chavanel and Allan Davis. If you wish to enter a new team with either of these riders, there are only two and a half days left to enter our Spring Classics Fantasy Tour - Sponsored by Specialized.

Over $4300 in prizes will be awarded, with the Grand Prize a Specialized Tarmac Elite or Roubaix Elite bike worth $2,399!

Intermediate prizes will be awarded after the first four and first six races to the top three players in the Pool, and overall prizes at the end of the nine races that make up our Spring Classics. You can enter up until 5:00 pm EDT Friday, March 27th. Multiple entries are allowed.

  • The winner of the Canadian Cyclist Spring Classics Fantasy Tour is the participant who scores the most points.
  • In the event of a tie on points (but not the same riders and team, as above), the number of event wins, number of second places etc. will be the tie-breaker.
