We're heading into the fifth round of the Fantasy Downhill Presented by Trek. So far 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!

After 5 rounds, @luggz83 is leading the overall with 3785 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.

Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season, the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion will win a Trek Session 9.9 complete bike with Limited Edition exclusive paint scheme. You can see where you're currently sitting in the Global ranking here.

Round 6 Prize
Mont-Sainte-Anne, August 11

Pick the best team for this round and you can walk away with Line Elite Dropper Post and Line Pro Cockpit.

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.

 I would love this... Don't yet have a dropper, and my bars are narrow and my stem is comparatively long. Don't care much about my stem length but still... *crossed fingers*

 @endlessblockades: Lol ruthless is a pretty good description. I'm not trying to be needy and whiny, and stem length wasn't a sexual reference... Can't think of another reason. Just trying to balance @YouHadMeAtDrugs's snark, and express some appreciation for free stuff. Yes that was genuine, and I could actually use the prize. Lol, ho hum, gotta love the PB comments.

 Isn't this a DH contest? Why is the prizing geared towards to xc/Enduro nerd herd?

 Fair point, but... I've never ridden a bike over 130mm travel and have spent the last 5 years riding a 120mm hardtail yet DH is my absolute favorite bike racing and possibly favorite sport overall to watch. I'm probably not the only one
