Promoted post with Zweeler Fantasy Sports Games
If you enjoy the ever popular fantasy sports games scene with various platforms available for several different sports, including cycling, then you will love putting your knowledge to the test on Zweeler Fantasy Cycling 2021
The time you take to pick out the perfect team for the next race could be the reason you top your league and potentially win a cash prize as well.
Most of the time with fantasy sports games you just get the accolade of coming out on top with the slimmest chance of winning anything, but with Zweeler you have a very good chance of taking something at the end of the season.

The 'Spring Classics' league is set to start up very soon with at least £6997 with first place taking £1749.48. Teams will cost £8.75.
You will be able to put 20 riders into your team with Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) and Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) being the most expensive at 50 and 48.2 million each.
The deadline for this league is Saturday February 27 at 11:45 CET and you can also sign up and create a friends/family league too.
There are two main game types on Zweeler, one is 'Season Budget' and the other is 'Season Groups' as well as individual race challenges:
The game will cost £4.39 per team and will start with a guaranteed amount of £657.76 in prizes. The first prize will be £104.67 (30 GC prizes).
Budget is where you have a capped amount of money, specifically 420 million Euros, and you pick out the 25 riders you think will perform best over the 55 races that are included in the Zweeler game. Each team costs £9.03 with a first prize of £1,354.57.
Groups is similar but you choose 35 riders from eight groups of which you think, or hope, will take the most points over the 55 races in the season. Once again it is £9.03 per team with the same first prize of £1,354.57 with a total of 161 'GC' prizes available. Fantasy Groups will start on Thursday February 11 2021 at 11:40 CET
There are a couple of other classifications within the games too with 'Classics' and 'Tour' where you can see who has the best team over the spring Classics or at the Tour de France and you could win £618.59.
The final classification is the 'sub-league' where you compete against family, friends, or colleagues with £203.19 being the first prize available.
Points are earned depending on where your riders come in the general classification and stage results with the races split down into categories of Cat One, Cat Two, and Cat Three.
A Cat One Tour can bring you 180 points as well as a potential 100 point bonus if that race is a Grand Tour with points going all the way down to 25th, Cat Two goes down to 20th with 100 points for first and Cat Three down to 15th with 50 points for first.
It's similar with stages but the points go down with points going to the first 15 in Cat One and 40 points for the winner, top 12 in Two with 25 points as the top prize, and 10 in Three with just 15 points available.
The points system for the Classics is the same as the Tour system but the top points scores go down as 120, 70, and 35 over the categories.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!
I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.
It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.
After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.
When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.
My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
