<> Fantasy Cycling Teams - 2011 <>

* As has become our custom, Lisa & I will be adding to our interest in this year's professional cycling season by following the fortunes of our own fantasy cycling teams. We've been doing this since 1997. We select our teams on the basis of each rider "costing" his total UCI ranking points earned last season divided by ten and rounded to the nearest five, with a minimum cost of twenty points and a maximum of 200.  We allow each team 1000 points on this basis, with nine riders to be selected. No more than two riders in each team can be selected from the same real life trade team.  Throughout the season we score our riders performances in all the major races according to the points system adapted from one used by Roger Hughes in his Fantasy Cycling League. The tables below summarise the fortunes of our teams throughout the season.


* Although his Nightowlers came up short in last year's record-breaking season, Steve has retained all of his riders for this season's line-up. Lisa has also held on to all of her Ready Steady Riders.

For a blow-by-blow details of our riders' successes throughout the season, see the accompanying blog.

* See below for Ready Steady Riders' results.
