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 3 Prize
Leogang, Austria

The world’s fastest riders are always hungry for more traction. So, we teamed up with Loïc Bruni, Finn Iles and Chris Grice from the Specialized Gravity team to develop a mountain bike tire to tame World Cup Downhill Tracks. Together we cooked up something that will satisfy even the most aggressive appetites. The Cannibal Tire LTD tread pattern has been completely redeveloped, integrating our super sticky GRIPTON T9 compound with a high volume casing that brings superior control to any terrain. MSRP $80 USD. Learn more at specialized.com

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.

Office Leagues

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!

March 26-27: Lourdes, France
