by Pinkbike Staff  


We're heading into the FINAL round of the Fantasy Downhill Presented by Trek. Over 21,000 Pinkbike readers have picked their dream DH World Cup team to be in the running to walk home with a Trek Session 9.9 and other prizes!

@juanpedro94 won the last round in La Bresse with 935 points and walked away with a Line Pro Wheelset.

With one round to go, @luggz83 is leading the overall with 5268 points. The overall winner at the end of all 7 rounds of the 2018 UCI World Cup and the 2018 UCI World Championships will walk home with a Trek Session 9.9 with a limited edition exclusive paint job! More photos and detail on the spec here.

Read on to refresh your memory about how the league works and increase your chances of taking home a prize.

If you didn't participate in the first rounds, now's the time to enter a team! You may not be able to win the Grand Prize, but there are prizes for each round, so it's worth spending the time to create a team.







Prizes
Grand Prize

DH Fantasy League 2018 grand prize Trek Session 9.9

World Championships Prize
Lenzerheide, September 8

Pick the best team for this round and you can walk away with 4 Bontrager Tires & a 1300 Lumen Ion Pro Light.



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

To make evolving your strategy between rounds easier, we've allowed unlimited trades after each round. Instead of only 2 changes allowed per round, you can now stick with what's working, or change your whole team out after every race.

Injury Icon

We've added an injury icon to show high profile athletes who are injured. This is not foolproof or exhaustive, so you'll still need to do your own research into your picks. If you know of riders who are injured, mention them in the comments and we’ll keep this updated.

Office Leagues

Employees at Race Face, Norco, SRAM, Trek, Chromag, Jenson, Specialized, and more are battling it out behind closed doors in their Office Leagues.
Fantasy League trash talk

Offices can set up private leagues in addition to playing the main public league. Let the trash talk begin and show Dave in accounting who's boss (sorry Dave).



The Fantasy Downhill League is Presented by Trek.

 Umm, wouldn't World Champs be the 8th of 7 rounds in this contest? According to the contest description above and in previous articles, the bike should have been given away after WC round 7 in Lebresse. Not that I would win the bike either way, I just value integrity.

 It's just badly phrased.
"The overall winner at the end of all 7 rounds of the 2018 UCI World Cup and the 2018 UCI World Championships..."
Should be more like: The overall winner after all 7 rounds of the 2018 UCI World Cup and the 2018 UCI World Championships...

 It was announced from the very beginning that points will be given for all 7 world cup races plus world championships and the winner of overall will take the bike, so don't know why some people are complaining. Read more, complain less.
