Velogames Fantasy Cycling

Scoring Points

The Velogames Fantasy Vuelta a Espana 2017 runs a detailed scoring system, designed to accurately rate each rider's achievements during each stage and in the final standings.

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

Daily Stage Scores for Team Time Trial (Stage One)

Stage 1 is a Team Time Trial and its unique nature means that it follows a reduced scoring plan compared to subsequent stages. No other points, except the Stage Result and Race Leader points shown in the two tables below, are awarded after Stage One.

Stage Result - Team Time Trial

Points are awarded to all team members in the Top 8 teams classified by finishing position in the team time trial, based on the following table. Riders do not have to finish alongside their leading team members to receive points. However, they do have to finish the stage as a classified finisher.
