EWS Round 1 Prize
Fantasy EWS League

@EllaC 's Round 1 team
First Place:

@EllaC picked the best team for this round and received 899 points... Wow, what a weekend from Ella Conolly, the EWS win AND the Fantasy EWS win! Since our rules state that sponsored athletes can't win round prizes (sorry Ella, looks like your Maxxis tired were working well for you this weekend!), @thingswelike (who tied for second but came out on top in a random draw with @TheRealBobHolness) walks away with a set of Maxxis tires, including two Assegais, two Shortys and two Dissectors along with some swag to keep him looking fresh on his way to the trails.

@EllaC is in the lead to win the overall prize of an Ibis Ripmo AF with a NGX build and 24 tires of your choice in addition to a boat load of team Maxxis swag but since we doubt Cannondale would let her keep that prize, we'll say @thingswelike and @TheRealBobHolness are in the real lead for the bike and tire prize pack with 862 points apiece.

 @Mntneer: what makes you think?

 Does this count as 'fixing' the result? I mean any of us could have entered the race and won it right??
Massive congrats @EllaC was amazing to watch you take the win yesterday!

 Totally agree, I think it's only fair to give the prize to the second placed team... winkyfaceemoji

 @TheRealBobHolness: Did we have exactly the same team!? Did you beat me by having an e instead of my i in the name!?

 @TheRealBobHolness: Are you in the UK? (assuming so with the Blockbusters reference)
  • 1 0
 @thingswelike: Indeed I am... I was going to claim that I really am Bob Holness... then I Wiki'ed him and it turns out the TV and Radio legend passed away in 2012.

 @TheRealBobHolness: Well if I eventually end up with some tyres, I'll send half over. Haven't heard anything yet.
  • 2 0
 @thingswelike: That would be amazing! But don't worry if you don't... I think I'll be getting about 20 tyres with the Ibis.
  • 1 0
 @TheRealBobHolness: I'd like to say I'd give you a run for your money, but past form suggests that away from the Tweed valley, I'm pretty average. A bit more motivation this year though, eh!?

 she picked herself and won it

 Following the first round we have added a few more riders to pick from. Let us know if there are any we have missed that should be included for the next round.

 Gotta love a fantasy league being run by people who don't know who are actually racing....

 Christo Gallagher? I wanted to pick him for R1 Frown
  • 1 0
 Why does Innes Graham show as 0 points when he came 3rd?
  • 2 1
 @swenzowski: He was added to the rider list after the race so was not included in the points for round 1.

 Had Moir and Wooley on my team... Oof
  • 4 0
 MoiMoi has only been on a mountain bike for a month since the shoulder op. Didn't even ride rough tracks to begin with either
  • 4 0
 I hope Maxxis secretly throws a little extra schwag at Ella. Or a sweeter sponsorship deal, or whatever

 Could you guys please post a list on pinkbike of who will be racing that weekend before the fantasy league closes. I find the ews website hard to use to find out who is racing each week. Thank you!
  • 3 0
 So close! I was only 818 points away!
  • 4 0
 The Pete Rose of MTB

 You know what I like about this? She bet on herself. I like that confidence.
  • 1 0
 Had ALN in my team and got no points attributed to her. Even though she finished 5th.
  • 1 0
 Can you send me a screenshot? I have checked the scores on our end and it all looks correct.
  • 2 0
 @edspratt: Actually it looks like the length of her name pushed the points down to the line below and Martha mustn't got any points as she finished down the list.
  • 1 0
 @casey79: Looks like we had the same female riders because I was thinking the same thing : /

 Bit presumptuous Pinkbike, I'm sure Cannondale wouldn't object to Ella sticking the Ibis on eBay.
  • 1 0
 What happened to Moir? Did he say rash or have a technical issue?
  • 4 0
 Not back up to speed after offseason shoulder surgery.
  • 2 0
 He's only been on a mountain bike for a month since the shoulder op. Didn't even ride rough tracks to begin with either
  • 1 1
 I guess I was supposed to be on the ball but y'all let me pick Moir and Wright. No Injured icon?
  • 3 1
 Yeah wtf, they let me pick some riders who didnt win. Whats up with that.
  • 1 0
 So athletes can’t win but EWS race directors can?

 Amazing, congrats on both fronts!
