Last Chance to Put Your EWS Racing Knowledge to Good Use in Round 2 of Enduro Fantasy Trivia

Nov 14, 2020
by Pinkbike Staff  


While the Enduro World Series were on pause and the world's top enduro racers were stuck at home waiting for the series to get back underway, we were glued to athletes' social feeds, rewatching event highlight videos, and rereading old tech articles... and now that the short but intense season of racing is over, we're back to doing the same thing. To put all that Enduro World Series knowledge to use, we're running a couple more rounds of Fantasy Enduro Trivia while we recover from a topsy turvy season.

These trivia quizzes WILL count towards the overall Fantasy Enduro League, so if you're all all-time EWS nerd (or just have a knack for guessing!) you could be the lucky person who wins an Ibis Ripmo V2 with the new 12 speed Shimano XT groupset!

Each trivia round will feature 15 questions and this one will run 10 days, from Wednesday, November 4th at 10am PST through Sunday, November 15th at 11:59pm PST and will have feature prizing for the overall Top Nerd. We'll combine these final two rounds of Fantasy Trivia with the previous rounds of Fantasy Trivia and Fantasy Enduro to crown the overall Fantasy Enduro Champion and present the Grand prize of a complete bike!

Sound good? Let's get started. But first, here's what's at stake:

 It is funny to try and find the riders who will perform on world cup or EWS and think we put a malediction on them when they all decide to have a flat when we pick them, but I don't see the point in answering about Jared Graves' max heart rate on a stage in 2014... You could ask us how many times Gwin farted on his winning run in Windham.

 In Universe 6, darkbike didn't have a Trivia. I can confirm that Vergier didn't have a flat the entire XC season. However, it was Mathieu van der Poel and Jolanda Neff who took the Downhill World Cup overall.

 Seems like many of these are wrong. Trailforks says the elevation is 2166m for Crankworx 2015. And it was Fabien Barel and Adam Craig that got dinged for shuttling in 2013.

 Agreed, just found the answer on a website, went to look for the name, and it wasn't there.

 The decision to hold more trivia is pretty disappointing news for me. The decision also seems quite arbitrary. Anyone from Pinkbike care to comment on why no trivia was added after the racing for the DH or XC leagues?

 People are taking this much more seriously than I thought. I assumed everyone was just picking pretty much at random apart from the odd one or two that they actually already knew.

 How come one of the polls has closed already?

And isn't the height of the trail question wrong??

 I bet winning this thing is the only chance to get new Shimano groupset on your bike, since all the shops are out of stock for 52 weeks and counting...

 If anyone knows the correct answer than I will give them an answer to something they don’t know. Answer for an answer???? Asking for a legend to reply. It’s the only question I haven’t been able to find a legitimate answer????

 I forgot to mention. It’s the last question on the trivia. Does anyone have the correct answer?????????

 @ORTOGONAL555: Dang it... I searched so many times and never found something specifically referencing it... had a gut feeling who it was but didn't want to guess so I used process of elimination finding pictures of those named on their enduro bikes... picked the one left over... then just for kicks I search one more time after the deadline and found Dan's IG post referencing it. WHY?! lol Hope that doesn't cost me my chance at the Ripmo. Cry
