Pinkbike’s Fantasy League Show With Cam McCaul: Episode 1, Losinj - Video

Apr 26, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  

Secret DH race fiend and bundle of pure energy Cam McCaul breaks down the winners and losers from the DH World Cup in Lošinj, Croatia last weekend. He also gives up his picks and strategies for the next round of the Pinkbike Fantasy Downhill contest!

Aaron Gwin put all that off-season gym work to good use today muscling through one of the most physical tracks we ve seen on the circuit to take the win by a scant 0.79 seconds.
Pom Pon picking right up where she left off with a dominating performance that would see her take the win over rachel Atherton by more than 3 seconds.
The Bull Dog bruised and and battered but he will live to fight another day.

The Bontrager Line Pro wheelset has been won, but there's a lot of racing to do before the winner of the Trek Session is decided. We'll be announcing the round prize for Fort William soon!


The Fantasy Downhill League is Presented by Trek.

 Congrats, Moonboy! If that is your real name...

 @wannabeabiker: I’m pretty sure more people know me by this name than my real name now, so isn’t moonboy now my real name?
  • + 3
 @MoonboyMTB: Moonboy? You must be from Portland. Wink

 @rrolly: haha, nope. Shitty ass Columbus Indiana. And you don't want to know how i got this nickname lmao

 @MoonboyMTB: gotta be nice having Brown County in your backyard tho!
  • + 1
 @ZebraJacket99: yup, Columbus sucks but Brown County is awesome. A bit too cross county for me, but still loads of fun.

 Apologies to Finn, Ed Masters, and Danny Hart for putting them on my team last week.

 @paulhaysom: Divulge you point tally! Come on! or "contest not open to employees and affiliates thereof...?"

 @paulhaysom: The proletariat want visibility into the PB employee scores! WE. DEMAND. TRANSPARENCY! ;-)

 @ckcost, don't worry, I beat @paulhaysom.
  • + 2
 @mikekazimer: Yea, he probably only picked Brits!
  • + 6
 @EKrum: please no
  • + 7
 @ckcost: I want to be clear that I also beat @paulhaysom
  • + 1
 @ckcost: in case you were wondering @mikekazimer and @brianpark got lucky. Bruce Klein having that puncture was a big hit for me, and Finn getting taken out was my undoing!

Fort William...I'll be back on top.

 Damn @paulhaysom, Yea, I had Klein on my squad too....but still salvaged a 594. What are you doing with the rest of your budget? Spending it all on hookers and blow?

 lets not forget that Ed Masters qualified 2nd at fort bill in 2016....

 And then went full beans

 Let's hope he doesn't blow up on the first corner this time. Was looking on the the pace till that chain came off in Losinj though.

 @Jimmy0: The most intense 30 sec of DH history ! Still love this guy Smile

 That was great, cheers Cam McCaul. I figure everyone is more likely to pick their national DH heroes for the fantasy league. Sure paid off for the Mericans' this time but didn't for me with Bulldog. 6 weeks till Fort Bill and hopefully he's crushing it again!...I still can't believe he rode to the bottom with a broken collar bone. Animal.

 That's it cam!

 Sure is!

 @bernardkerr: Come on Bernard mate, get that leg recover faster and ride harder! I'm gonna pick you for my list next round!

 Might have to disagree with the Cecile Ravel stat of been the first person to have top ten in DH, EWS and XC.

As T-mo (Tracy Moseley) has won EWS, DH AND got a couple of top ten in the UCI Eliminator (back in 2012) which gives UCI XC points, which sure come under the XC banner.

 Eddy was supposed to be my little secret, thanks for ruining that

 I have a feeling there were already more than a few of us with that secret...

 What no. Mine!

 @millsr4: yea but we were the smart clever ones who figured it out, at least thats what I told myself, now we're lemmings..
  • + 1
 @cdubz09: At lease we're leading the lemmings instead of following! Wink

 Caribou are land mammals that can swim across rivers and lakes but are rarely seen in the ocean.
