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.

 I love how they got the AXS groupset photoshopped in, but forgot to get rid of the derailleur cable ;D

 Yeah the cable situation on that bike as a whole is super weird. Like what's up with that lockout cable? And there isnt a cable at the derailleur but everywhere else there is.

 I..... Have no use for that fork.... So I guess I won't really kind when all the people I pick have mechanicals because my luck is like that

 Pricing for the XC seems to be off compared to the other fantasy disciplines. Much harder to build a team around a couple top riders.

 I've seen the track, it seems gravelpaloza is a more aprapo race name than XC.

 What is the scoring system? The terms mention exhibit A which I can’t find anywhere
