Fancy yourself as the next Eusebio Unzue, team manager of Caisse d’Epargne? Why not have a go at La Vuelta Online, the cycling manager fantasy game that we’re promoting this month.
You can register for the game for free at www.lavuelta-game.com. Set up your team of nine riders, pick a strategy for each stage and see how you fare. And if you’re more serious, you can spend real money on improving your riders’ equipment and skills as the race progresses.
Each stage of the Vuelta will be simulated by the game, taking into account all the participating teams’ data. Once the ‘stage’ has finished, you’ll be notified that the results are available and you can see how your team has done.
There are prizes for the top 25 scorers in the form of Focus games. First place will receive five Focus games of their choice; second to fifth will win three games; and sixth to twenty-fifth will win one each. For more information on the game, go to www.lavuelta-game.com.
