Grand Prize
Season Overall

At the end of the season the overall Fantasy XC Champion will win a Trek Top Fuel Carbon Frame with a RockShox Sid World Cup, a RockShox Deluxe RT3, a RockShox Reverb AXS, SRAM XX1 Eagle DUB SL Crankset, SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS Derailleur, SRAM Eagle AXS Controller, SRAM XX1 Eagle Chain, SRAM XG1299 Eagle Cassette, SRAM Level Ultimate Brakes, and SRAM Centerline Rotors.

Round 2 Prize
Nove Mesto, Czech Republic

Pick the best team for this round and you can walk away with a set of SRAM Level Ultimate brakes worth USD: $300 / Euro: €324. Level Ultimate is the master of two forces — power and weight — in one sleek, durable design. In this build, we took every gram to task. Carbon-fiber lever blades for crisp, clean pulls. A new two-piece, two-piston caliper for superior heat management and smooth piston actuation. With Ultimate, total control is at your fingertips.

• Modern XC power for today’s most demanding races.
• Pivot bearings offer crisp lever feel and a fatigue-free ride.
• Engineered for easy installation and maintenance.

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 Trek, RockShox 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!

Good luck!

The Fantasy XC League is Presented by Trek and SRAM.

 I know I won't win, but does anyone want the brakes if I do? They're a little small for me
  • + 3
 I'll take them please!

 I thought it would be a SRAM's Wireless Reverb AXS Dropper Post
  • + 2
 I'll take them and follow you!

 Not me!

 That brake lever with no cable makes me uncomfortable.

 I wonder what the thought is behind that brake rotor spider design. If you've got six pick up points (rotor bolts), you want to transfer the brake load straight into them. Why then use a seven pointed star shaped spider?

I can't accept the prize if they don't take away my concerns.

Of course, if you don't want me to win those brakes, feel free to add more concerns in the comment section below.

 That design is to shed heat I think.

 Those brakes would go nicely with the SID I won last week!

 Just don’t leave them in the sun, even for travel. Especially for travel.

 Just send him the whole bike at once and be done with it. No need to chop it up and send it in little bitty pieces.
  • + 2
 Still no Alan Hatherly as an option even though he is current U23 world champ and racing the whole year as elite?
  • + 1
 Yeah, no Malene Degn (10th last week in elite) and Joshua Dubau (14th) too
  • + 1
 The entire pool of riders is outdated... Some listed aren't even racing WC, and other top riders are no where to be seen.
  • + 2
 Sina Frei also missing
  • + 1
 They also didn't update at least one name. Jitka Skarnitzlova married and is now Jitka Cabelicka.

 Page says "Round 1 Prize" but it's Round 2 this weekend at Nove Mesto.
