Jul 27, 2022
by Pinkbike Staff  

We're heading into the sixth round of the Fantasy DH Presented by Specialized. So far over 22,000 Pinkbike readers have picked their dream World Cup DH team to be in the running to walk home with a Specialized Demo Race in the size of your choice!

Read on to see the prizes up for grabs, learn more about how the league works, and increase your chances of taking home a prize.

There are prizes for each round, so it's not too late to get a team on the line!

Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion will get a Specialized Demo Race worth $7,000 USD in any size of your choosing.

All-out speed has always been the Demo’s target, and with the Demo Race it’s no different. Introducing a new flexible wheel-size frame design that allows riders to take advantage of a 29-inch front wheel and a 27.5-inch rear wheel, it’s a special blend that’s long been tested by World Champ Loic Bruni looking for the perfect balance of traction and maneuverability, but only just green-lighted by the UCI this past year. Not that it stopped the Demo Race from racking up both the Downhill World Championship and overall World Cup titles in its very first season... Learn more about the Specialized Demo Race here.

Round 6 Prize
Snowshoe, West Virginia

Introducing our new Gravity Race Kits, built for inside the tape to make fast -- faster. This Race jersey wasn’t just designed to handle the intensity of Finn Iles. It was designed to handle the intensity of Finn Iles on race day It’s durable and flexible in all the right places so that Finn can shred in confidence. When Chris Grice is between the tape, he needs apparel that is optimized for comfort and durability. Designed with high abrasion- resistance patches at the knees and durable CORDURA® fabric, the Gravity Pant ensures that Grice can focus on the win and the win alone.

Winner will be able to select a jersey, bottoms, and socks of their choice from the Gravity Collection.

3-Day Blackout Period

In order to avoid players copying each other's teams, all rider selections will be hidden for 72 hours before each race. Start playing mind games with your friends that you know are shoulder-hopping your choices.

Unlimited Trades

You're allowed unlimited trades after each round. You can stick with what's working, or change your whole team out after every race.

Employees at Pivot, Muc-Off and more are battling it out behind closed doors in their Office Leagues.

Offices can set up private leagues in addition to playing the main public league. Let the trash talk begin!

 Oh awesome, another trendy hashtag that'll achieve absolutely nothing.

 @scott-townes: To be totally honest, I'm not really sure what a hashtag does. I think maybe it's Twitter?
I don't know. I was just so annoyed at losing the Warner commentary next season that I just blurted out a hashtag. I did the same thing when I was annoyed about not being able to the Snyder version of that film a while ago... but that turned out OK... apart from the pretentious idiot releasing it in 4:3 ratio. Anyway, I feel like I've gone on long enough. It's time for a cocoa and bed. Goodnight all.

 They seriously closing edits before practice and with zero starting rider information?
  • 4 0
 That was an error, team editing is back open now. We don't have a real start list yet for this round but we should have one from the UCI today.

 Could you please leave the Team Editing option open until the qualifying starts?

 At least until we have a start list would be good.

 They probably should have said "who " was providing this rounds prize. Not just "from our Gravity collection". You would get better advertising for your dollar that way.

 Wait, I can get the Butter kit if I win this week? SIGN ME UP

 When is the cut-off point for editing your team before the race?
  • 3 0
 Time of the deadline will depend on what country they are in for the race but it's always after practice/timed practice day, and before qualifying. The Pinkbike fantasy section should have a countdown timer closer to the deadline.

 @Paco77: They made a liar out of me! The countdown timer is up now and it looks like you have to make your team even before practice day... Which seems like a mistake.

 @garrett-g: Thanks for the heads-up!

 @garrett-g: I agree it does seem like a mistake...the cut off is always after time training is posted...I wonder why it isn't this round?!
  • 3 0
Yo, looks like the cut off is before timed training. Curious if we can get that fixed? Also who do we ping in the future for Fantasy issues like this?
