Talossan Cycling Association Tour

The Talossan Cycling Association Tour (TCAT) is a fantasy sports league held between Talossan managers, played on the Velogames platform.

Managers may assemble a team of nine riders by picking two all-rounders (typically general classification riders), two sprinters, two climbers, two unclassed riders and one free pick, spending a total of 100 credits. Unlike previous fantasy sports leagues which have been played among Talossans, such as the Talossan Football League, Velogames does not allow for autopicks/autodrafts, riders may be shared between teams, no alterations to the team can be made midway through, and all picks are hidden until the competition starts.

TCAT editions tentatively mirror UCI Grand Tours stage races: Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España. So far, three editions have taken place.

Season 1 Leg 1: Tour de France 2022

The first leg of TCAT Season 1 followed the 2022 Tour de France, held between 1 and 24 July 2022/XLIII.

The leg saw four teams taking part, with Naziun Cjovani winning out. CJO also managed to be the only team to pick Jonas Vingegaard, the ultimate general classification winner, as well as Tadej Pogačar, the early favourite and a strong contender throughout the event, who ultimately finished second and won the young riders's classification. CJO was also the lone team to pick Magnus Cort, arguably one of the stars of the first week.

BDC was the team with the most daily stage point leads (10), followed by CJO (8), KIN (2) and GHS (1).

CJO and BDC riders took six stage wins; 3 each through Pogačar, 3 for van Aert for BDC, 2 for Vingegaard and 1 for Cort for CJO. KIN took four through van Aert and a lone stage win for Pidcock. No GHS riders took stage wins, Quintana scoring a single 2nd place.
