Scoring Points

The Velogames Fantasy Tour de Suisse runs with a detailed scoring system, designed to accurately rate each rider's achievements over the 8-stage event.

Points are scored at the end of each day and also for the final overall positions in the main rider classification at the end of the race.

Less points are awarded for final overall positions when compared to the Fantasy Grand Tours. This is because the race is only one week long, and the proportion of end-of-tour points would be too high compared with stage-by-stage points if the same end-of-tour points were awarded!

Daily Points for Stage One (Prologue)

Stage 1 is a short Prologue Individual Time Trial and its unique nature means that it follows a reduced scoring plan compared to subsequent stages. No points are awarded for leaderboard positions after the stage. The only points awarded are for the stage result itself.
