Tour Champion Giro 2013

Long time lurker, very infrequent poster here...

TourChampion is back for 2013! Much beloved on the old BBC 606 Cycling forums (before any of us knew about VDS), the gist is that you pick a team for the Tour from the categories (1 leader, 2 super domestiques, 3 sprinters/TTers, 3 domestiques). Only one rider per trade team so you can't get the entire Colombia squad. Scoring works just like the team competitions in the actual Giro, first three riders over the line contribute to your time and there's also points and KoM competitions. Some riders are in weird categories and if you've missed agonising over that last spot in your VDS team then this is the game for you. You can spend hours swapping riders in and out. The site is in Dutch but I've found gs' helpful guide from a few years ago which will explain how to navigate your way round and also the rules and scoring system.

There should be a way of constructing a mini-league if I can work that out.
