by Pinkbike Staff  

We're heading into the seventh round of the Fantasy DH Presented by Specialized. So far over 22,000 Pinkbike readers have picked their dream World Cup DH team to be in the running to walk home with a Specialized Demo Race in the size of your choice!

Read on to see the prizes up for grabs, learn more about how the league works, and increase your chances of taking home a prize.

There are prizes for each round, so it's not too late to get a team on the line!

Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion will get a Specialized Demo Race worth $7,000 USD in any size of your choosing.

All-out speed has always been the Demo’s target, and with the Demo Race it’s no different. Introducing a new flexible wheel-size frame design that allows riders to take advantage of a 29-inch front wheel and a 27.5-inch rear wheel, it’s a special blend that’s long been tested by World Champ Loic Bruni looking for the perfect balance of traction and maneuverability, but only just green-lighted by the UCI this past year. Not that it stopped the Demo Race from racking up both the Downhill World Championship and overall World Cup titles in its very first season... Learn more about the Specialized Demo Race here.


Round 7 Prize
Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada

Developed with the help of our world-class DH athletes, the 2FO shoe family has you covered when performance, comfort and style can't be compromised. A cushioned EVA foam midsole and a relaxed fit last keeps you comfortably locked in no matter the trail. The supple reinforced upper and molded toe cap stand up to the rigors of daily trail use. Every shoe in the family features the SlipNot™ ST rubber sole delivers confident traction on and off the trail. Of course, every 2FO trail shoe features Body Geometry features to maximize performance, and reduce the chance of injury. This round's winner will get to choose any shoe from the 2FO family that suits their trail 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.

Office Leagues

Employees at Pivot, Muc-Off 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!

March 26-27: Lourdes, France

 I really think not being able to see ones picks when your roster is locked is stupid. It should really be 3 days from roster locking you can't see someones picks and then once the picks are locked you should be able to see your friends picks. If I can't make any changes what does it matter if I can see the picks or not.

 Anyone remember the dirt fantasy league, where you could only swap 2 riders between each race? I gotta say, I kinda miss that. It was more of a tactical challenge.

 Fckkkkkkkk inwas too late to take cami out.. thats me done this year. Next year PB please free injury replacements, cannot track the goings on minute by minute lol

 I think for next year, if a rider gets injured during practice or qualies, PB should allow changes during an event (only up until qualifiers) but only for that member and none others in your selected line up.
