Notice! It's not an option to write, "Any Other Rider". This will not count and the score of the prediction will be 0 points. Users must pick/predict three riders, name and nation, for each stage. Users are allowed to change their predictions for an upcoming stage after the provisional standing of the most recent stage has been published and before the start of next stage. Example: User A is allowed to change his/her Top 3 prediction for Stage 4 when the Provisional Standing of Day 3/Stage 3 has been published and before the start of Stage 4.

TB Rules

If two or more contestants have the same number of points at the end, Tie-Break rule will be applied to break the tie.

Number or perfect predictions throughout the contest will be compared for the involved contestants. If they are still tied, number of correct 1st Places will be compared, then number of 2nd Places and at the end number of 3rd places. If players are still tied, the number of correct predicted places in the Classification prediction will be taken into consideration.

 

Example

Contestant 1: 6x10, 12x4, 10x3, 7x2

Contestant 2: 6x10, 12x4, 8x3, 8x2

Contestant 1 will be placed ahead of Contestant 2.

 

Contestant with most points wins the competition.

 

The Ranking is determined by the Sum of Points the Contestant scores in all predicted Stages and Classification predictions.

 

You can enter the Contest whenever you want. The moment you post your predictions is the moment when you are entering the Contest and your points will be calculated for all the stages you predicted AND which haven't started.
