Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy XC Champion will win a Trek Top Fuel Carbon Frame with a RockShox Sid World Cup, a RockShox Deluxe RT3, a RockShox Reverb AXS, SRAM XX1 Eagle DUB SL Crankset, SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS Derailleur, SRAM Eagle AXS Controller, SRAM XX1 Eagle Chain, SRAM XG1299 Eagle Cassette, SRAM Level Ultimate Brakes, and SRAM Centerline Rotors.

Round 1 Prize
Albstadt, Germany

Pick the best team for this round and you can walk away with a RockShox SID Ultimate. The SID Ultimate is packed with all the characteristics that elite XC racers demand — gram savings, DebonAir™ air spring technology, the Charger™ 2 RLC Damper and race-proven Maxima Plush fluid. A complete race day performance driven package. The new Signature SID Blue color option offers up another benefit that’s even harder to pin down — style.

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.

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 Trek, RockShox 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!

Good luck!

The Fantasy XC League is Presented by Trek and SRAM.

 It’s obviously photoshopped. It’s has AXS wireless and shows the housing for a mechanical der.

 What are the chance of winning if you just choose at random? I only know of about 5 riders and all of them only because of Rob Warner's 'meets' series

 @rrsport: no no no. It is the new AXS MegaMagno virtual shifter. Magnetism is used to phase shift the chain into a parallel universe and no external hardware is required

 @rrsport: I know it's a joke question, but he won XCO U23 World Cup in 2017 and had some decent placements in 2018 elite season, like 15 place in Albstadt, 24 in Nove Mesto, while not participating in all races. I don't understand why he isn't on the list of riders in fantasy league.

 @fu33: Alan hatherley isn’t on either. Based on xcc he should be. He would have been a good low price, high performer
