The final grand tour of 2014 is starting very soon. On Saturday 23 of August 19.04 hours CET, the Vuelta a España starts with a team time trial stage around Jerez de la Frontera. Tour de France winner Vincenzo Nibali will not start in this Vuelta, but nevertheless, the competition will be fierce this year. The following riders will compete for a podium spot: Joaquím Rodriguez, Alejandro Valverde, Chris Horner, Nairo Quintana, Alberto Contador, Chris Froome and Rigoberto Urán. Considering the course, it will certainly not be a boring Vuelta. No less than eight mountain stages are scheduled and in addition, there are the arrivals on the typically Spanish hills.

Joining the competition
In order to make the Spanish stage race even more exciting, you can take part in the Zweeler ___Escaped_link_638d83d1b53cf___. In order to play this game, a team consisting of 20 riders needs to be created, 15 base riders and 5 reserves. The riders only score points by means of the stage results. The top 20 of every stage therefore scores points, excluding the team time trial. The winner of the team time trial, however, needs to be predicted in order to score bonus points, which is also the case for the winners of the four other classifications.

Although taking part in the Fantasy Vuelta a España costs 7 Euros per team, magnificent cash prizes can be won. At the moment, the total prize pool is filled with 14,000 Euros. The winner can look forward to 1,000 Euros whereas the second and third still win 750 and 500 Euros. In total, there are 62 prizes for the general classification. During each stage prizes can be won (205 euro per stage) and in addition we also have the subleague classification and the zero points jackpot which is filled with 2,250 Euros. 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 after the finish in Compostela. Each participant can compose as many teams as he/she wants to, as long as each team has at least three riders, which have not been included in any of the other teams.

Fantasy Vuelta a Espana (budget) and day game
Following the success of the Tour de France, Zweeler is also introducing a Fantasy budget game for the Vuelta. A team of 20 riders has to be composed within a fixed budget. Both the top 20 of each stage as well as the top 20 of the end classification will receive points. Taking part costs 15 Euros per team and the prize pool will be filled with 3.000 Euros to start with, which means that the winner is sure to receive 500 Euros. The Fantasy Vuelta a Espana (budget) prize pool will be distributed among the general classification and the subleague classification. There are no prizes per stage.

Finally, Zweeler is also organizing day games for each stage. These games require a low stake of only 1 or 2 Euros. Each day, you can compete for a minimal amount, which could possibly result in a money prize as a reward at the end of the stage. The last major cycling tour of 2014 will therefore be even more exciting.
