fjhoekie wins first free PCM15 copy
The first of three PCM15 Contests run by PCMDaily goes to fjhoekie, who took out the Tour's Round #1 "One of Four Betting" contest. As six members went for a tie in the original score, the winner was then found through a bonus round - which fjhoekie narrowly took ahead of Strydz. You still have the chance to join the second round.
In the third contest to win a free copy, we see 'DiLego Superstars' leading ahead of cio93's 'Team Puma - SAP'. Lord di Lego's team is Froome, Valverde, Rodriguez, Meintjes, Sagan, Gallopin, Elmiger, Haas, Degenkolb. Rorosaur's Riders (about 400pts off DiLego, currently sitting on 6th place) is the only other team in the Top-10, that has Froome in it.
Forum Post Ratings system added
The biggest news this week was certainly the addition of a rating system for individual posts in the forum. In case anyone has missed it, check the news section for the article. Please note, that "these ratings will be trialled on the site, to see how they go - but there's plenty of potential for the system to be expanded in future."
ZABELD! SO MUCH YES! - SSJ2Luigi
One big dislike to this system. - Avin Wargunnson
Additions to the download section
One of the site's biggest downloads has seen an update this week: Jacky Durands PCM Sponsorkits 2015 Version 2.0 is now available, fixing some known bugs from his previous version, as well as updating the Tour de France sponsorkit and other races' mountain/sprint signs.
The RSM forum (biggest German PCM community) came up with RSM-news DB 2015 Version 0.4, where you can choose from 103 teams (12 from the USA) and 308 races.
Games, games, games!
Non-cycling (forum) games used to go strong from time to time and so did this one in the past few years: the Fantasy NFL: Season 2015 has been launched by jseadog1 (who hasn't been posting in his Running journal this week though)! If you're interested in American Football and enjoy those Fantasy games, go check the thread and find all informations you need to join the PCMDaily community there. Previous winners of this game, that has been run since 2010: valverde321, DJP19, jseadog1, baseballover312 and defending champion madzdaman.
Still some spots open (15, to be precisive).
New PCM.daily Initiave underway
Do you remember... when Geraint Thomas became a world class climber?
With the last week's biggest news (site updates, Le Tour) becoming usual business for most of us, it's about time to announce a new initiative, that will be kicked off at some point this week: the news section will see a new addition, in which we will look back at some of our community's greatest, smallest, best, funniest (and so on) moments!
This Remember when... section will feature short articles on things such as PCM Stories, ManGame highlights, "forgotten" members, famous stagemakers and stuff like that. We won't not just present former PCMDaily Award winners (like me), but also less known things, that some of you might still remember.
Porte-Thomas-Froome and a certain thread comes alive. 2agan. Greipel makes it three. Nibali won't win. Schweinsteiger joins ManUtd.
The thing about Sky that gets me is mostly Brailsford - Movistar
That's Sir Brailsford to you! - Eden95
According to spectators it was Heineken and not urine - deek12345
Same difference - SlickMongoose
Thread of the Week
Easy choice: Sky Doping/Hate Thread. As soon as those Sky guys crushed the competition on the first summit finish, we would see this annual discussion heating up once again. An enjoyable place to visit.
