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 Downhill League. Each round you can make changes to your team and you can be apart of 2 mini-leagues and compete against your friends.

Prizes

Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion will get to design a custom Trek Project One Slash Carbon to bring home kitted out with a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate, RockShox Deluxe RE:aktiv, a Bontrager Line Elite Dropper, Bontrager Line Carbon 30 Wheels, a SRAM X01 Eagle Drivetrain and SRAM Code RSC brakes.




First round prizing to be announced. Round Prizing from the following brands: Trek, RockShox, SRAM, Bontrager, 100%

IMPORTANT: To maximize your chances to win the Grand Prize Custom Project One Trek Slash Carbon with SRAM and Rockshox components, we recommend you have your team created by March 20th 2020. 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.

Good luck!


The Fantasy Downhill League is Presented by Trek.

 Why's it matter? Pinkbike staff is going to get it anyways.

 Most of us are all about watching that downhill, then casually ride XC trails on Enduro bikes.

 @fruitsd79: also, is it electric? It looks electric. I would love to have a DH bike that’s electric (not that the slash Is a DH bike). I could cruise up trails, with little effort, and then go down them very fast. You could practically turn an enduro, XC, or even a DH trail into a DH park. But what do I know, as I’ve never ridden an E-Bike

 @JacobyDH: not electric.

 Actually I read online that it is sour power bar powered. Also, since this is a DH contest, what about a session?

 Because although it's a DH league, I'm sure that most of the people (me included) competing would get more use out of a trail bike than a DH bike. Quite nice of them to do it this way really!

 I love playing Fantasy DH. Thanks for bringing it back for another year.

 I'm a real fan and one lucky winner from last year! BUT.... I still haven't received my price from last years Fort William round ... And I'm getting no response on my requests!

 Weird I get my custom Session pretty quick and broke it pretty quick too ;( ;p

 I’m so crap at this game. It would take me less time just to go to work, earn money and buy the damn Slash. But that would be way less fun!!! Bottom 25% represented.

 blimey, that downtube is so fat i thought it was hiding a battery.

 It's a trick to make e-bikes aesthetic more acceptable- make non e-bikes more e-bike looking. We are all pawns in a marketting game of chess.
  • 5 0
 I find the trickiest part with lower ranked but potentially point scoring riders is whether or not they will ride all the rounds. For some without the full team support making it to all the distant locations can be tough.

 I use Instagram in the days leading up to the event. Good way to check if your roughies are on location for the race not before the Fantasy DH deadline.

 In previous years you could edit your team as much as you like for each round. I wish there were more restrictions on it though

 Here come the oil slick haters...
  • 2 0
 Before they start hating, make sure you throw on a rainbow cassette and chain and swap out all the hardware with oil slick Ti
  • 4 0
 Oil slick? Nah, that's a deep south Bass Boat finish if there ever was one. It might have a SRAM drivetrain, but I hope they throw in a Shimano fishing reel to complete the look!
  • 2 0
 @g123: It definitely is not oil slick, but is reminiscent of it. I was just poking some fun.
  • 8 0
 It's actually Prismatic Pearl Wink But if that isn't your cup of tea, you can choose any Project One paint job for the Slash (assuming you win!) projectone.trekbikes.com/ca/en#model/slash99x01

 Come on Pinkbike ..... we can only choose 2 x lady riders .... the ladies have some good competition this year and it would have been great if it was more balanced
  • 3 0
 2 lady riders makes total sense. Its not based on the level of competition but obviously on the total number of male vs. female entries. It would be MUCH easier to score high with and entail a lot of shared places with the same number of points if one could choose three female riders.

  • 5 2
 Didn't expect them to make Vali Höll that expensive
  • 2 1
 @SickEdit: I didn't expect them to put in injured riders, but they have.
  • 1 0
 @djm35: Injured riders have been included for awhile. A bit surprised to not see a medical symbol beside Brook however.
  • 4 0
 @SickEdit: Vali should probably be more expensive. She's got her head in the game and has put up numbers that are faster than most of the women's pack. She's a steal at that price
  • 4 0
 She’s 450k because she’s the fastest female that isn’t injured.....
  • 1 0
 @Bmontgomery87: I thought the ranking was based primarily on prior season performance, no?

PB did cover this some time ago but I can't find the article using search.

 @robwhynot: Can't be. Finn (16th + 300k) versus Zabjek (17th + 100k). Plenty of other discrepancies. High prices for guitarists and singers, not drummers.
  • 1 0
 @SickEdit: Just watch out which rounds she's in this year, she said she will probably miss a few for school

 the choice for women is a joke. You have to pay the same price for a female racer with 2 top 5 as for a male racer that has 3 top 3. The cheap choice are women that were not going to the races last year. What is the logic behind the pricing ?

 Kitted out with rockshox… give me a break. Not sayin its bad but come the phuck on.
