by Pinkbike Staff  

Pick your dream XC World Cup team and you could be in the running to walk home with a Trek Top Fuel Carbon kitted out with Rockshox SID suspension and SRAM AXS components!

Get ready to show your skills for picking winners, at the 2 rounds in the Czech Republic for the UCI World Cup and the 2020 UCI World Championships in Leogang. With a fictional budget of $1.5 million you will choose your ultimate team of 6 riders (3 men, 3 women) and go to battle in the Fantasy XC 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 the 3-race series we crown the overall Fantasy XC Champion and present the Grand prize of a complete bike!

Sound good? Build your team today!




Prizes

Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy XC Champion will win a Trek Top Fuel with RockShox Sid Ultimate, a RockShox SIDLuxe Ultimate, a RockShox Reverb AXS, SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS, SRAM G2 Ultimate Brakes, Bontrager Wheels, and Bontrager Tires.



First Round Prize
October 1, 2020 // Czech Republic

The winner of the first round will walk away with a set of SRAM Level Ultimate Brakes. Power-to-weight ratio is a cut throat game. Superfluous grams: chopped. Extraneous hardware: chiseled to essentials. In SRAM's quest to pack the most braking power in the lightest-weight package, they created the next-gen Level. With carved levers, sculpted calipers and a superior heat management system, Level delivers distinct power with zero grams to lose.






IMPORTANT: To maximize your chances to win the Grand Prize Trek Top Fuel Carbon kitted out with Rockshox suspension and SRAM components, we recommend you have your team created by September 29, 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.

2020 Race Schedule:

01.10.2020 XC World Cup #1 - Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic
04.10.2020 XC World Cup #2 - Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic
05-11.10.2020 World Championships - Leogang, Austria

Good luck!


The Fantasy XC League is Presented by RockShox and SRAM.

 This is good news, with CoVid there have been fewer things to lose at, I've been starting to get a pretty high opinion of myself. I need to be knocked down peg.

 Can we get updated rider lists? Where's Keegan Swenson? I think Howard Grotts last raced a WC XC in 2018.

 Hey Pinkbike,

I wanted to add Lena Gerault in my team as she is in great shape this year (she beat pauline and neff) but she is not on the list, is this normal?

 They don't care, same list as last year, which was already outdated when it started. Patheti, considering they have sponsors and prizes for this.

 @bohemi IMPO, There are several riders, based on their 2019 results, that really need to come down in $$$.

 The list of riders in female is really out of date, Helen Grobert quite after the doping thing like 2 years ago. As a minimum it should have all the latest national champs in.
