Tour de France Online Game

Tour de France Online Game
Deadline for signing up:  6pm U.S. Eastern TODAY (12 midnight CEST (Paris time))

Once you sign up (free), you become director for your team and the duration of the game is 3 weeks, just like in the real Tour.  Your team will compete in simulated stages, the same stages in the real 2009 Tour de France starting with the Monaco Time Trial through the stage to Mont Ventoux and into Paris.

Signing up today means you compete in the simulated Stage 1 Monaco Time Trial tomorrow, Monday.  Note:  You set up your team strategy, etc. ahead of time, before each stage.  You do NOT need to be at your computer when the simulation for each stage is run; you can check back anytime for stage results and to prepare your riders for the next day's stage.

Each day, you build your riders' skills, set the tactics for the next stage (for example, which riders to send into breakaways and when), make sure your riders get massages, etc.

You may sign up for multiple game plays (you direct multiple teams) but each registration requires a different email address.

The game can be played until August 20.  Cash prizes will be determined after that date.
