Vfr: Mtb World Cup Cross Country

Postby vfr on Mon 31/Mar/14 10:14am

The lycra clad road racing fans have been having far too much fun with their vorb fantasy races so now it is time to share the love and start the off road competitions.

The VFR: MTB World Cup Crosscountry fantasy competition will run throughout the "Summer" and you will be able to score points for the mens elite races at the following 7 stages

UCI MTB World Cup, South Africa: XCO 1, 13 April 2014 , Pietermaritzburg, South Africa Results
UCI MTB World Cup, Australia: XCO 2, 24 April 2014 , Cairns, Australia Results
UCI MTB World Cup, Czech Republic: XCO 3, 23 May 2014 , Nove Mesto na Morave, Czech Republic
UCI MTB World Cup, Germany: XCO 4, 30 May 2014 , Albstadt, Germany
UCI MTB World Cup, Canada: XCO 5, 31 July 2014 , Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada
UCI MTB World Cup, USA: XCO 6, 7 August 2014 , Windham, USA
UCI MTB World Cup, France: XCO 7, 21 August 2014 , Méribel, France

The start list and rider rankings will be taken from the UCI published list of UCI Mountain Bike Teams for 2014.

Team selection:
Click the "Pick your riders" button above and select the members of your vorb fantasy race team. Next to each riders name you will see the riders ranking (according to the UCI). As you select riders you will see your total team size and strength updated at the bottom. Your team must have 4-6 riders with a combined strength ranking of 4000 points or less. We will not be closing the rider selection so you can (and probably should) change your team lineup for each of the 7 races. Although, we do request that you do not change your selection after a race has started and before the scores are recorded. Players caught doing so may be penalised.
Before the race starts, a randomly generated team will be entered so players can gauge their skills as a team manager against those of a drunken chimpanzee throwing darts at a printout of the startlist.

Scoring:
Points are awarded for the finish of each of the 7 races, 50 points are awarded to the first finisher down to 1 point for 50th place

Any chance of a league for the women's racing? Been crazy exciting the last couple of years!

If there is sufficient interest, I am more than happy to run a womens fantasy race. Downhill? Cross country? both?
To be honest, I was waiting for someone to ask.

My main interest is XC, but now that it's so easy to watch all of the races and follow how things are going, DH would be awesome as well.

I know a few non-vorb people who have a pretty keen interest in the XC racing and would gladly let them know of the league if it goes ahead. Handy having the US Cup this year to see the early form of quite a few riders.

Maybe if existing vorbers would be keen they could say so by posting in this thread... I hope there's sufficient interest! :thumbsup:

He's not listed on the uci team riders list. Has he joined the elites? perhaps he's still competing in the under 23's

He definitely listed on the website now as an elite rider for CFR, I think the team riders list dates back to Feb according to the UCI website.

I'm happy to add him. Can send me the the link to the page that lists him. I am curious to see where the 564 came from.
