 This is my honest heartfelt apology for this race and every subsequent race this season. Dear World Cup riders, if I appreciate your outright skill, speed and courage enough to pick you for my Fantasy Team I am so sorry that your race will either end in disaster or you will be a country mile off the pace of everyone else. There is no explaining how this curse works and with the ability to change in riders between races I am scared how many of you this could affect.

 Can I blame you for the tree attacking Loris?
  • + 8
 @mountainyj: yeah pass it on dude. Poor Loris. And don't get me started on Finn Frown
  • + 1
 @chainspotting: hope Finns arm is all good. Gonna be sore for sure, laid into that root hard. Can’t believe Loris got up like nothing happened.
  • + 4
 You see I thought it was my fault for picking Loris that the tree jumped out and got him. I managed to not even notice that Myriam Nicole wasn't even starting due to her injury (hello medical box beside her name!). There should be some sort of Booby prize for me picking the stupidest team! I had a non-starter, a crasher, and it went downhill from there.
  • + 1
 Guess who were the two riders I went for without hesitation. Yep, Finn and Loris.
  • + 1
 @Rugbymurf: You got nothin on me. I was top 500-1k overall last year, and did well in CWX etc close to/in drawing for prizes... please no one check my showing for this round. I hang my head in shame. Please earth open and swallow me now. lol Off the top of my head, I had at least two non-participants, a couple mediocre picks, and... that was my random team I picked at the creation of the league.., I realized my error shortly before the deadline, about 4:30 am. Tried to change it but fell asleep before hitting save. Facepalm My one sort-of comfort was, "Well, at least I remember picking Loris. That's one good thing; I'm guaranteed a few points that way." Let me edit that. A few points. Literally. 3. Stinking. Points. I'm in the late 20k's, close to 30k ranking, maybe 176 points or so... can't remember and don't want to. Redface Cry lol

 @chainspotting How funny would it be if Gee (for example) in the interview after the race said something like:

"yeah, if chainspotting could please remove me from his fantasy team, that'd be great, he's messing with my stuff!" Big Grin

 Im still gonna go with Minnar, because Fort William.What are the chances he would crash there 2 years in a row?
  • + 1
 @Milko3D: mate that would make my YEAR!!! I met Gee at Champery in 2010 what a dude.
  • + 1
 Edit: Not 176 points. I just rechecked my score, and I got, wait for it, 177 points! Bring on the confetti!
  • + 21
 What about @Satanours? Same team, same 820 points.
  • + 5
 He lost the coin flip.
  • + 2
 He's some sort of Fantasy MTB Psychic... He has 2nd place and the same points as 1st place in Fantasy EWS also.
  • + 3
 @haroman666: That doesn't sound fishy at all...
  • + 1
 @haroman666: @nozes: I remember he was right up at the top last year too. Confused
  • + 12
 In case anyone is interested, there is still a little bit left to improve Smile The ideal team for this round would have been:

BRUNI Loic 550.000 250
HARRISON Charlie 225.000 150
HART Danny 475.000 200
TRUMMER David 75.000 75
RÜBESAM Sandra 20.000 70
HOFFMANN Nina 100.000 110
Total 1.445.000 855

 I don't mean to brag with my fantasy league but, in optimisation, getting the worst possible solution is as difficult as finding the best one ! Now, if only there was a prize for that.
  • + 4
 @polarproton: spending all your money AND scoring worst is an art form, I'm giving workshops Tuesdays and Wednesdas afternoon.
  • + 13
 Anyone got any tips how to climb 23148 places?

 Just keep up the good work!...

 Sorry to be that person, but the point system in the DH Fantasy rules should be a little different.

For men from the 5th to the 20th place should be different.
For women; 6th, 7th and 8th place should be different.

It should be:

Men: 250, 200, 170, 150, 132, 115, 108, 102, 96, 90, 84, 78, 72, 66, 60, 54, 52, 50, 48, 46, 40, 39, 38, 37, 36, 35, 34, 33, 32, 31, 30, 29, 28, 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Women: 250, 200, 170, 150, 130, 111, 94, 82, 70, 60, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5.

 Seems they already fixed it Smile
  • + 1
 @Menno: nope, they haven't. My score is still higher than it should be.
  • + 2
 @chribi: ssssshhhhhhh !
  • + 1
 @chribi: ah, i saw they updated the rules at least where there was an error in the scoring table.
  • + 1
 For simplicity’s sake, we’ve stuck to 5s and 10s. You can see the points scale we’re working with in the rules.
  • + 5
 Bruno is the new king of DH, and little wheel in the back is the new standard.
  • + 2
 Gwin has been consistently bad since switching to 29 inch wheels. He's either crashed or simply been beat. Just sayin'!
  • + 0
 @rezrov: yeah he's under 6' so don't be surprised if he shows up on 29/27 next race. Now tall guys like Minnar need a 33" for the front. Seriously.
  • + 4
 @rezrov: This was Gwins SECOND race on a 29er. The word "consistently" cannot be used to describe two races that was half a year apart.
  • + 2
 @Boardlife69: Eh, all DH racers use very small sample sizes. Gwin also crashed during practice in Val Di Sole (which put him out for the season), and he won the last race run he had on a 275.
  • + 4
 Last year's overall winner is 10th after round 1, there must be some skill involved that I clearly lack in the 15000's
  • + 4
 Someone else got 820 points but their username began with an S so they didn't win. I would be fuming!!!
  • + 5
 Soo stoked with the top10!!
  • + 5
 You again?!
  • + 3
 Again! That's unreal, way to kill it!
  • + 1
 So the other guy who picked the same team amd got the same number of points. Does he win anything? Who decides which of the tied highest scorers gets the prize?
Or are the results I'm seeing incorrect?
  • + 3
 Can we start again?? Had Loic down then changed him for Loris... then had the wrong Matt Walker Frown
  • + 2
 would 26 in the back work tho?
  • + 1
 maybe on the steeper tracks but probably not this one.
  • + 2
 In inside the top 13,000s! Fuck Yeah!
  • + 1
 Thats the spirit!
  • + 2
 I did even worse than the first two EWS races. Yikes.
  • + 1
 Does anyone know if Kaos Seagrave will be allowed to race in Fort William?
  • + 1
 I assume he'll make sure to earn enough UCI points before his home round, it's still 1 month away.
  • + 1
 Holy cow, I suck worse than last year. Im not good at this.
  • + 0
 Seems like the key is to move all off the Team cash to male riders, like everyone in Top 10....
  • + 1
 Losing atwil killed me. Otherwise solid team.
  • + 1
 260 points isn't bad for me, given that half my team didn't start..
  • + 2
 I got beaten by my wife
  • + 3
 something something domestic violence
  • + 1
 Top 11000, well rip slash
  • + 1
