Build Your Dream Enduro Team Today with the 2021 Fantasy Enduro League

May 30, 2021 at 5:37
by Pinkbike Staff  

We are excited to announce the launch of Fantasy Enduro. Pick your dream Enduro World Series team and you could be in the running to walk home with the Grand Prize

Get ready to show your skills for picking winners, at all 9 rounds of the 2021 Enduro World Series. With a fictional budget of $1.5 million you will choose your ultimate team of 6 riders (4 men, 2 women) and go to battle in the Fantasy Enduro League. Each round you can make changes to your team and you can be apart of 2 mini-leagues and compete against your friends. Each race round will have feature prizing for the overall Top Team of the round and then at the end of all 9 races we crown the overall Fantasy Enduro Champion and present the Grand prize of a complete bike!

Sound good? Build your team today! See the list of participating riders for this round here.



Prizes


Grand Prize
Season Overall

For the grand prize awarded at the end of the season, Maxxis teamed up with Ibis to kick start your enduro career! Ibis is providing their Ripmo AF with a NGX build and Maxxis will make sure your first couple seasons of racing go smoothly with 24 tires of your choice in addition to a boat load of team Maxxis swag!





Round Prize
Round 1: Canazei, Italy

For this first round, one lucky winner will receive a set of Maxxis Assegai tires and a set of Minion DHR tires, along with some swag to keep you looking fresh on your way to the trails. Designed by the GOAT, Greg Minnaar, the Assegai has quickly gained a reputation as the grippiest tire in Maxxis’ line. It’s the go-to front tire for the gnarliest conditions. With broad, stout knobs the Minion DHR is renowned for its braking traction on the steepest trails.


IMPORTANT: To maximize your chances to win the Grand Prize, we recommend you have your team created by June 23, 2021. You will want to maximize your points score and have your team present for all races. Teams created at a time after races have previously occurred earlier will not be eligible to backlog points that riders would have accrued from previous races.

2021 Race Schedule:

06-23-2021 - EWS #1 - Val di Fassa Trentino, Italy

 God damn Squamish enduro racers collectively had too good of a season last year, making it prohibitively expensive to have them all on the same team. Thanks for that, Jesse, ALN, Miranda, and Remi.

 Hi Pinkbike, I think you've accidentally published the wrong fantasy contest.
  • 1 0
 I think Val Di Fassa is close to.
  • 1 1
 Yeah I think they meant to publish EWS Burke. Close enough.
  • 1 0
 @PTyliszczak: I'm talking about something like 10km. Still in Val Di Fassa area
  • 15 0
 These numbers aren't right. We all know half the pack are making 10K a year . . .
  • 14 0
 Done. 6 EWS seasons successfully ruined.

 Is it just me or does enduro seem to be significantly harder to make a team due to how much $ you have vs the applied values for riders? I feel like higher prices go way deeper than anything in DH or XC. You've got like 40 male racers north of $200k while in XC its around 18-20. And 19 are north of $300k vs about 9 in XC and you get $1.5MM for both....

 Will this Ibis do the job?

 Is the Ripmo AF an Enduro bike? I have one and think of it more as an efficient trail bike with heavy ass-saving capabilities.

Also, I bet Maxxis's buddies at SRAM aren't happy that they show several pics of the SLX build AF(with Fox factory upgrades??) instead of the N/GX version they're actually giving away.

 @VtVolk: What is an enduro bike? I would consider anything that can compete effectively at the EWS to be an enduro bike. You'll find Robin, Bex, Cole and Zakarias all on Ripmo V2's, the carbon twin of the AF.
  • 1 0
 @VtVolk: I dont think Sram is supporting the giveaway. Im pretty sure the NGX Ibis Ripmo AF is one of the off the shelf builds.
  • 1 0
 @VtVolk: I believe it has SRAM brakes, and who in their right mind has Guide brakes on their enduro bike?

 Probably best to check the racers are actually going to be competing before making your teams. I know most of the Australian racers aren't leaving the country.

 I saw more than a few teams with Rhys as well. I don't think his collar bone will be racing the first few rounds.
  • 2 0
 Agreed, and I think some of the riders I saw on the list aren't even racing EWS anymore.

 @pumpjumpnflow: plus some obvious omissions from the list too...curious.

 actually a few are check ews list

 Lachlan Blair? Sure I can't see Jared graves either.

 All the road fantasies ( even crap ones) list riders who are actually in the races ( until they crash/retire)

this looks like a cookie cut list from 2019 with higher value placed on recent winners?

Pinkbike why do we need to sift through the racers to determine if your list is correct or not?

 How did you determine the value for Evan Wall? I hope he does well, but 150k for a brand new face with no real history seems steep.

 @sarahmoore: Any chance we can get the rider lists updated so they look like the start lists? I dont think Anneke Beerten has raced a EWS for a couple of years...

 Prizes for all the fantasy contests this year should be what mountain bikers need in 2021: Brake pads, tires, and maybe a fe chains.
