Round 4 Prize
Val Di Sole, Italy

The winner of the World Championships round will walk away with a new TLD D4 Carbon helmet. Using TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fiber reinforcements in the shell of the new TLD D4 Carbon helmet has helped pare down the weight of the full-face helmet by almost 50 grams without sacrificing strength. Despite the loss in weight, we were able to strategically add EPS to increase strength and durability. Integrated MIPS Brain Protection System designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head. The new TLD D4’s package is rounded out with lightweight titanium D-rings, collarbone suspension system and quick release XT2 3D cheek pads and X-Static washable liner. MSRP: $550 USD. Learn more here.

IMPORTANT: Teams created after races have occurred will not be eligible to backlog points that riders would have accrued from previous races, but it's still worth creating a team because there are great prizes to be won at each round.

06-13.2021 - DH World Cup #1 - Leogang, Austria

 @stikmanglaspell: honestly, 2 years+ and never a word from a 100% rep.
One mention of a missing lid and TLD are on it faster than a fly on poop. Now THAT's customer service. 100% take note.

 No complaints but it's funny how the xc really seems to take all the focus for the fantasy leagues. That's one hell of a helmet but this xc round has an xx1 axs upgrade kit and RS sid ultimate fork.

 @sarahmoore - are there any issues with team selections not saving or reverting? I've just checked my team and have a completely different one than I set up last night?

 I'd rather win the XC prize. DH prizes this year are a bit of a let down.
