Fantasy Enduro League: Last Chance to Change Your Team Before EWS Zermatt 2020

by Pinkbike Staff  

After one round of Fantasy Enduro Trivia, we're heading right into the first round of Fantasy Enduro Presented by Shimano. We're so stoked to be finally getting the chance to build out our race team for the first time this season! We've been keeping our eye on who is and isn't planning on attending the first round (hint: a certain Australian isn't a good person to add to your roster) and seeing who is coming into the season hot by sifting through regional results pages.

Read on to see all the prizes up for grabs during the first round of Fantasy Enduro, learn more about how the league works and increase your chances of taking home a prize. See who is racing by checking the live updating and searchable form on the Enduro World Series website. Just scroll down and click on ‘Participating Riders' to see who is entered into the race.

We hope you earned some points in the first round of Trivia, but even if you didn't, it's worth playing since there are some great prizes on offer at each round. Also, you wouldn't believe how far back some of our overall winners have come from in the past years. Anything can happen over the course of a race season and every point is worthwhile if you want to win an all-new Ibis Ripmo V2 complete with the new 12 speed Shimano XT!

Good luck!

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.

Injury Icon

We've added an injury icon to show high profile athletes who are injured. This is not foolproof or exhaustive, so you'll still need to do your own research into your picks. If you know of riders who are injured, mention them in the comments and we’ll keep this updated.

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!

Robin Wallner captained a very strong team of sweed s that caught many off guard on their way to a silver medal

 The point scale meant for a normal/typical season in 2020 (EWS Rulebook) is different to the current Race Round Scoring for the Fantasy Enduro.

Question: Will there be an update on the 'Race Round Scoring' for the Fantasy Enduro, or the current 'Race Round Scoring' is final?

Main differences:

- Points go up to 115th place in the men's category, which changes the points from position 45 to 115 (compared to Fantasy Enduro).
- In the women's category, points are different from the 8th to the 18th place (compared to Fantasy Enduro).

 Hi @sarahmoore, you have uploaded two tables, one starts with 500 points and the other with 250 points… I may be wrong but the 500 point scale is probably the right one for Fantasy Enduro…

500 points
250 points

Does this mean that there will only be points up to 60th place?
  • 2 0
 @ostia: There will only be points up to 60th place, correct. The 250 points scale is the correct one.
  • 1 0
 @sarahmoore: Will there be any more additions to the racer lists or doesn't ever racer get added to the fantasy list?
  • 2 0
 Hi @sarahmoore, if a rider finishes 14th, he is scoring 85 points, 5 more points than the 13th place… the 12th place scores 85 points too.

Probably it should be: 14 (75), 15 (70), and 16 (65). That way no one will argue by the time the results are out. Other than those three places, the scoring looks great. Hope it helps.

 Do the e bike racers points count in this? I thought Josh Carlson was racing the e bike category, but maybe it was another rider that was switching over.

 For someone who has only been following racing for 3 years or so, I found a great way to learn more about the history of the sport. Even tough the first rounds didn't go perfect, I still enjoyed them.
