Well you can manage your own team in the major cycle races of the year.
Some of my mates and I have been competing virtually at www.virtualbikerace.com creating our own league.
Described by it’s creators as:
Virtual Bike Race is the ultimate in Fantasy Cycling Websites. Pick your dream team from your favourite riders in the ProTour and challenge your friends and family. Take on the role as Directeur Sportif (Sporting Manager), making transfers throughout the race, but keeping within the team budget.
Competition for the Giro are already under way, but you have 3 days to select your team before the start of the Tour of California. You have 5 transfers available and 1 more each stage, so you can change your team according to rider form.
