Build Your Dream Enduro Team Today with the 2019 Fantasy Enduro League

Mar 17, 2019
by Pinkbike Staff  

We are excited to announce the launch of Fantasy Enduro Presented by Shimano. Pick your dream Enduro World Series World Cup team and you could be in the running to walk home with a Pivot Firebird 29er carbon frame kitted out with Shimano XTR!

Get ready to show your skills for picking winners, at all 8 rounds of the 2019 Enduro World Series. With a fictional budget of $1.5 million you will choose your ultimate team of 6 riders (4 men, 2 women) and go to battle in the Fantasy Enduro League. Each round you can make changes to your team and you can be apart of 2 mini-leagues and compete against your friends. Each race round will have feature prizing for the overall Top Team of the round and then at the end of all 8 races we crown the overall Fantasy Enduro Champion and present the Grand prize of a complete bike!

Sound good? Build your team today!


Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy Enduro Champion will win an Enduro World Series ready, Pivot Firebird 29 outfitted with XTR M9100, Fox Suspension, PRO Components including the new 170mm Koryak dropper post and same Stan’s Flow EX rims that have landed on top of more than one EWS podium! Whether your goal is to conquer the EWS race series or just shred your local trails this bike is up to whatever challenge you give it, so get in the game for your chance to win this epic ride!

First round prizing to be announced.

IMPORTANT: To maximize your chances to win the Grand Prize Pivot Firebird 29er with Shimano XTR, we recommend you have your team created by March 20, 2019. You will want to maximize your points score and have your team present for all races. Teams created at a time after races have previously occurred earlier will not be eligible to backlog points that riders would have accrued from previous races. See who is racing in Round 1 here.

Good luck!

 How can we really know, don’t know if Martin Mayes will be at all the World Cups. Will he be sticking to Enduro or switching to DH?

 There was an article about him not long ago. He is doing the first 2 of the DH and Enduro events then deciding after that.
  • 3 1
 Sounds like a Fantasy, being able to pick winners when we can’t say for sure who is all competing.
  • 8 0
 Last year with the DH, you changed your racers for every race. Pick him if he's racing. Leave him off your team if he's not racing that weekend.
  • 1 0
 Just like every other year, you have to pay attention and adjust your roster based on who's actually racing that weekend. Nobody sticks with the same team all season.
  • 1 0
 cool, I missed that. Last year I quickly read that the deadline to pick your team at the start of the season had reached. Guess I misunderstood and it was the dealine for that weekend. I’ll play this year, thanks

 @thinkbike: I saw Aaron Chase ride a Cannandale recumbent during the 2003 24 Hours of Adrenaline. I was behind him going down the last downhill. Bounce Bounce.

 It'd be super awesome if, instead of, or ideally in addition to, choosing racers for a fantasy team, you could choose component brands! That way you could "enter" your fantasy bike build (component brands or maybe even models?) to see how well those components perform throughout the season.

 Hot Tip First round in Rotorua take the locals. Look at the results every year.

 How does the "cash" that you have per round work? I'm at a limit of 1.5k and the winning teams are well over 2k budgets. Is there a way to get more money for your team for a given race?

 XTR... It will never happen...

 @n8dawg82 It will happen! My concern is SRAM coming out with a new axle standard to bump it straight to 15!
