DH Fantasy League: Prizes Announced for Round 3 - Leogang World Championships

Oct 7, 2020
by Pinkbike Staff  

We've had two rounds of Fantasy DH Trivia and now we're finally getting our first taste of live downhill racing. There have been some national-level races hosted around the world and hopefully you've been paying close attention to who is in form despite the late start to the season. Read on to see all the prizes up for grabs during the third round of Fantasy DH.

We hope you earned some points in the first rounds, but even if you didn't, it's worth playing since there are some great prizes on offer at each round. Also, you wouldn't believe how far back some of our overall winners have come from in the past years. Anything can happen over the course of a race season, even a short one, and every point is worthwhile if you want to win an all-new Project One Trek Slash with SRAM components.

Good luck!

The 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.

Amplified Alchemy is one of literally hundreds of combinations of custom paints the winner gets to choose from with Trek's Project One program.

Round 3 Prize
DH Fantasy Trivia

This round's biggest nerd comes away with a pair of Bontrager Avert Adventure Mountain Bike Shoes, a hikeable, clip-in compatible cycling shoe that will traverse any terrain and whatever comes after bikes are put away and a Bontrager Avert Mountain Bike Rain Jacket, a super light and packable waterproof shell that has you covered when precipitation pours.

The Fantasy Downhill League is Presented by Trek.

 Hey Pinkbike Staff, how about deleting everyone's points from the trivia thing and let's make this a fair fight?
  • 12 5
 Yeah, this! Didn't even know about the 2 trivia rounds, I'm 300 points back in our league already.
  • 10 7
 @GrandMasterOrge: People have come from further back to win the Grand Prize in previous years!
  • 5 7
 @sarahmoore: I have no points from the trivia. I have no chance. The RIGHT thing to do would be to remove the trivia points so it's fair for everyone. It's a one off race seems fitting that contest be as well.

 @TylerD119: you could have done the trivia if fantasy matters that much. Just sayn

 It’s fantasy DH, not fantasy crappy lockdown quiz night on zoom...

 Haha I saw that headline and immediately thought "round 3??!?! How TF did I miss 2 races?" Bummer we're at an immediate point deficit but glad to hear it was just trivia that was missed.

 @TylerD119: That’s like skipping a whole semester of class then coming in on the day of the final and asking the teacher to drop everyone else’s grades and only grade them based on the final. You snooze you lose

 @Altron5000: exactly. Fantasy sports is based on imaginary rosters not trivia. It's really not hard to figure out. This place is run by monkeys lol

 That means absolutely jack all in 2020 bud. Look at the entered teams I dropped below. Don't even think any of them are on the fantasy list of riders anyway. It's going to be a shitshow.

 @dazlad: Look at my comment below yours.
  • 6 0
 Add noga to the rider list please
  • 4 0
 Can you add Noga? She’s racing worlds
  • 3 1
 Noga, Mazie Hayden, etc. There are many on the list not racing - and many more not on the list that are racing.
  • 4 3
 Having riders who aren't competing on the list is what makes it interesting - people who do their research will do well in the Fantasy League! Don't want to make it too easy Wink We base the rider list and prices on previous year results so not everyone who is racing will be on it.
  • 2 1
Agreed. Research is key to a Fantasy win and what the game is all about. Beer

 Pierron will win, you are welcome
  • 2 0
 @pasteque51: which one?
  • 2 0
 @sarahmoore: I'm talking about the dozens of riders competing who aren't on the list and therefore can't be chosen.
  • 2 0
 @Dropthedebt: Agreed - There are riders I want to pick that are racing and can't because they aren't on the list.
  • 2 0
 @sarahmoore: For example these 10 women were selected for elite women DH worlds - and many are racing but none of them can be selected in DH fantasy - Pink bike has left them all off the list.

 Where can we find a list of the entered riders?
  • 3 0
 We'll post the final Start List on the site as soon as it's available, but you can see team selections here. For now you can look at rider's social media to see who is confirmed!
