On Saturday, 29 June, the Island of Corsica will be the setting for the 100th edition of the Tour de France. A jubilee that will be celebrated with legendary climbs like the Mont Ventoux and the Alpe d'Huez. The fight for the 100th yellow jersey will probably be a duel between Chris Froome and the rest of the peloton. A year ago, the Kenyan-born Briton rode as a domestique for Bradley Wiggins and helped him secure the final victory. Now, he is the undisputed leader of Team Sky. Nevertheless, the competition is fierce: riders like Alberto Contador, Joaquin Rodriguez, Alejandro Valverde and Cadel Evans will also be present at the start.
At home you can also compete for the winnings of the 100th edition of the Tour de France. Zweeler is organizing the ___Escaped_link_638d47ca82ec8___
, which starts on Saturday, 19 June, at 12.15 am. You start by selecting 15 base riders and 5 back-up riders and you predict the winners in the various classifications. The base riders can score points in each stage by ending in the top 20 of the stage result. When a base rider drops out, a back-up rider will take his place in the next stage.
Taking part in the Zweeler games is not free of charge, but on the other hand, magnificent prizes can be won. Taking part costs 7 Euros per team
and each participant can compose as many teams as he/she wants to, as long as each team differs from the other ones by at least three riders. Zweeler guarantees a prize pool of at least 20,000 Euros
for the Fantasy Tour de France 2013
. The winner of the game will receive 1,500 Euros
with a total of 101 prizes for the general classification. In addition, money prizes will be issued for each stage. Nine prizes with 70 Euros in total for the stage winner and 300 Euros
in total. This way, participants can also opt to compose teams for stage prizes. It is e.g. possible to make a selection for a mass sprint with 15 base sprinters.
There is also a prize for the sub league classification, in which you can compete together with friends, family, colleagues etcetera in a prize sub league. These sub leagues consist of at least five and at most ten participants. The best sub league receives 100 Euros
and in total, there are eight prizes. Finally, there is the prestigious 0 pints Jackpot
. As a matter of fact, the name says it all: in order to win this jackpot, a team has to be composed that ends up with 0 points at the end of the last stage. A tricky task, but one that could enable you to win a jackpot of 750 Euros
