Vfr: Mtb World Cup Downhill

Postby vfr on Mon 31/Mar/14 10:26am

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 Downhill 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: DH 1, 12 April 2014 , Pietermaritzburg, South Africa Results
UCI MTB World Cup, Australia: DH 2, 24 April 2014 , Cairns, Australia Results
UCI MTB World Cup, Scotland: DHI 3, 7 June 2014 , Fort William, Scotland
UCI MTB World Cup, Austria: DHI 4, 14 June 2014 , Leogang, Austria
UCI MTB World Cup, Canada: DHI 5, 31 July 2014 , Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada
UCI MTB World Cup, USA: DHI 6, 7 August 2014 , Windham, USA
UCI MTB World Cup, France: DHI 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

I don't know, I think even the chimp would know that Steve Smith is likely to miss the first 2 rounds because he busted his ankle casing a jump just a few weeks ago.

I'm glad you asked because I realised the link to the UCI website was broken in the first post. The current selections are taken from the official UCI teams list published in February. If anyone knows of another source for the MTB world cup startlists we'd love to hear. I am reluctant to add riders to the selections without seeing some evidence that they will participate
