Put Your World Cup DH Knowledge to Good Use in Round 2 of DH Fantasy Trivia

Jul 16, 2020
by Pinkbike Staff  


While the World Cup circus is on pause and the world's top riders are locked down, we've been rewatching old races and classic mountain bike DVDs and nerding out about whether the rainbow curse is real or not... and many of you are likely doing the same. To put all that World Cup DH knowledge to use, we're running DH Fantasy Trivia while we wait for DH racing to start back up.

These trivia quizzes WILL count towards the overall DH Fantasy League, so if you're all all-time World Cup nerd (or just have a knack for guessing!) you could be the lucky person who gets to design a custom Project One Trek Slash carbon frame to bring home kitted out with Rockshox suspension and SRAM components!

Each trivia round will feature 15 questions and this second round will run 10 days, from Thursday, July 16 at 12pm PST through Sunday, July 26 at 11:59pm PST and will have feature prizing for the overall Top Nerd. Once racing resumes (fingers crossed!), we'll continue with the regular Fantasy DH League and combine the points from Fantasy Trivia with Fantasy DH for a total of 9 rounds and crown the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion and present the Grand prize of a complete bike!

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


The Prizes


Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion will get to design a custom Trek Project One Slash Carbon to bring home kitted out with a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate, RockShox Deluxe RE:aktiv, a Bontrager Line Elite Dropper, Bontrager Line Carbon 30 Wheels, a SRAM X01 Eagle Drivetrain and SRAM Code RSC brakes.

Prismatic Pearl is one of literally hundreds of combinations of custom paints the winner gets to choose from with Trek's Project One program.


Round 1 Prize
DH Fantasy Trivia

This round's biggest nerd comes away with a Bontrager TLR Flash Charger Floor Pump worth $129.99 USD, a floor pump with a pressurized chamber makes at-home and on-the-fly tubeless setup a breeze, a Bontrager SE5 Team Issue TLR MTB Tire valued at $84.99 USD each with severe traction for the most aggressive conditions, yet light enough to climb back up, and Bontrager's latest TLR Tire Sealant, valued at $29.99 USD. They'll also get 100% Ridecamp Jersey and Short with a combined value of $108, providing exceptional performance and comfort and keeping you on the trails longer, 100% S2 Performance Sunglasses valued at $155 with a rimless cylindrical shield and 360 degree visibility and comfort, and the great fitting 100% Geomatic Glove valued at $34.50.

That's a $625 USD prize pack for this first round!





IMPORTANT: To maximize your chances to win the Grand Prize Custom Project One Trek Slash Carbon with SRAM and Rockshox components, we recommend you play all rounds of DH Fantasy Trivia ahead of the DH Fantasy season. There will be 9 rounds in total. You will want to maximize your points score for all 9 trivia rounds and races to win the prize bike. If racing is unable to resume, the winner of the bike will be decided by DH Fantasy Trivia alone.

The theme of this second round is Fort William. Good luck!

 I have no confidence that I got any correct.

 I felt this one was easier actually. Not that I have had many correct, just that it is probably doable for someone to do research. Even the first one, I recall the user was clearly mentioned when UCI decided to actually do that ghost run. As for the Sam Hill mechanical, I recall having seen it in the Earthed 3 video. In his accent "I had a little mechanical..."

That said, I didn't do research (not even sure it was the proper Earthed video). No way I could have won something. Just hit the bullets and went to the comment section. This is Pinkbike after all Smile .

 @vinay: Yep some of those definitely were researchable. These are the only ones I'm pretty sure I have correctly, and still there could be something I missed with these)

 What happened to A, B, C, or D? Shit, at least in Grade 9 you had a 25% chance of guessing right.

 Damnit. I was feeling confident...but now realised that I stuffed up the elevation question and the Myriam Nicole question. Still holding thumbs for 13/15, but how many damn beers did Kovarik drink? Couldn;t find that answer anywhere.

 I thought Guessy withdrew during round 2. Her sister Guessine did finish but the results were questioned by many.

 I really don't have time to waste spending countless hours on the internet researching the answers to these questions but, fuck it...

 Pinkbike needs to start doing replays of past races but stop telling us who wins so we can still have the excitement of live races. I would be happy with that since this whole season is down the toilet.

 Also, am I the only one that notices that Pinkbike seems to get singular and plural messed up when it comes to companies??? Trek is a company not companies. Shouldn't it be has Trek won, not have Trek won? There seems to be no consistency between staff...

 @n8dawg82: It's a British thing. In America we say "Trek is," in England they say "Trek are." Actually, most of the rest of the world treats companies as a group of people in their speech. I'm guessing this article was penned by James Smurthwaite, a Brit who formerly worked at Dirt Magazine. As a sidenote, James, these questions are IMPOSSIBLE.

 @TEAM-ROBOT:
Which language are we using again?
And we've got it wrong??
  • 1 0
 @HarrySimpson: I didn’t say your usage was wrong, I was just explaining the difference. In fact, I pointed out that America’s usage is a singular anomaly.
  • 1 1
 @TEAM-ROBOT:
If America's use is a singular anomaly wouldn't that then make this an American thing?
  • 3 0
 @HarrySimpson: sure, if that helps you. I was explaining it to an American, and the point I was trying to make is that no one is doing it “wrong,” just different.

 @TEAM-ROBOT:
You're correct, there was no need for me to get involved.
Hope you have a great weekend.
