Rouleur Derby Report No. 60

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

In this Rouleur Derby Report:

1. Giro wrap-up

2. Up next



Oh, Canada! Ryder Hesjedal came through in a big way for North America and in an even bigger way for MonkeyMatt, who put 100 points on Hesjedal as a 30-1 shot. That 3,000 point pay day propelled MonkeyMatt to a ridiculous 677 percent return on investment in the Giro, and combined with a 25 percent Grand Tour bonus put him in 4th place overall. Congratulations, MonkeyMatt. I'll be contacting you separately to give you your $50 prize.

In other Giro propositions, there were no doping dismissals and no Italians on the podium. What a world!

To see how the Giro and this weekend's other races affected your score relative to other players, be sure to check out this chart: http://rouleurderby.com/rd/scores/


I expect there will be propositions for Sunday's Philadelphia International Cycling Classic and for the Critérium du Dauphiné, which starts the same day, but otherwise June will be quiet. Use this time to rest up and taper for July's Tour de France. Also consider recruiting your friends. We're currently at 230 active players -- my goal was to hit 300 by Paris. Can we get there?

Have fun, play well, tell a friend,
