    We kicked off in 2012, and we grew every year since. Let me start the 2018 recruiting early!

    We're coming back stronger than ever. A community of 20 fantastic personalities, and always looking for more cycling die-hards to join us on the dark side, participating in one or more of our fantasy leagues. On the menu in 2018:

    - UCI WorldTour aka the main league: big teams, long contracts, neo-pro draft, 500 auctions every November.

    - Rainbow Cup: straight up snake draft of all cyclists, but their price is fixed based on past results.

    - Country Roads: not one, but nine drafts, as all riders get divided into separate pools: sprinters, puncheurs, GC men etc.

    - Quick Fix: a series of 5 mini-leagues (cobbles, Ardennes, 3x GT) where you have to guess the next dominant force some weeks before the proceedings.

    - Fine Young Cannibals: 2nd year league, focusing on finding fresh talent, a combination of auctions and extensions.

    - Wall Street Cycling: my personal favourite, and the most dynamic out there - the only league where you can make big changes overnight. You auction riders very shortly before every big race, and get rewarded/penalized instantly based on the investment/result ratio.

    We use a free ProFSL forum for auctions and discussions, and a Google Spreadsheet for the results.

    If interested, please make the leap of faith: create a ProFSL account and PM me there. Cheers!

    If you are a bike athletics fan—or a motorbike racer yourself—there’s a decent likelihood you’ve participated during a fantasy athletics league, or a minimum of overheard some ultra-nerdy fantasy athletics speak.

    If you’ve vied, you’ve the possible return to understand the idea.

    You’ve seen your amateur athletics team’s cluster message thread extend within the waning stages of a tour draw as 2 fantasy players contend for the win in their mini-league.

    Or you’ve cursed your luck as your team’s star riders suffer mishaps within the gap week and fall fully out of competition.

    Similar to in-real-life bike athletics, this is often the wonder and also the agony of fantasy athletics.

    For the 2018 Giro d’Italia, FloBikes has created its own fantasy athletics mini-league
