League Name: Velorooms
League Code: 23845309

If you have been part of any of the races so far this year then there is no need to enter the code again, you will automatically join the league. The code is only for new entrants.

If you are interested in winning the season long league please keep your manager name the same throughout the year and ideally have it the same as your VR name or Twitter handle. If you change it, you run the risk of not getting the correct amount of points. Also please limit yourself to one entry or you risk disqualification from that event.

The game is following the lead of the race by having a reduced field at the moment of only 15 entrants. An opportunity maybe to score some easy/easier points.

Yeah, I posted that after he crashed :P seems he won't start tomorrow so that's basically a wasted pick :fp I definitely expected more from him in the crosswinds, shouldn't #deceuninck be the best team to guide him?

Phew. I just held on from a charging Russell.

A solid team effort with only Peters not contributing for me, but even so I was ~900 points behind the overall winner!

Thomas de Gendt finally becoming Thomas de Gendt saved your bacon there. ;)

I was happy with my score, given I had picked both Sam Bennett and Caleb Ewan. :fp

So, congratulations Leadbelly, on winning the Velorooms league, 2020. :lol
