As with the Downhill comp I was waiting for UCI to publish the entry list for the first round but, with less than a week to go, I have decided just to go with the startlist from the last round of the 2014 season in Méribel. As soon as the official entry list is published I'll update the rider selections so please check back closer to the start.

23-24.05 Nove Mesto Na Morave (CZE)
30-31.05 Albstadt (GER)
05.07 Lenzerheide (SUI)
02.08 Mont-Sainte-Anne, QC (CAN)
09.08 Windham, NY (USA)
23.08 Val Di Sole - Trentino (ITA)

This year, we are combining the mens and womens competitions. I was also going to insist that all teams have an equal number of men and women but decided not to bother. All teams must have 7 riders, regardless of sex. If you want an all male team, fabulous! If you want an all female team, great!If you want a mix, wonderful! I imagine one of those choices offers a tactical advantage but I have no idea which. So lets play the game and find out

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 7 riders with a combined strength ranking of 8500 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 6 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 separately for for the finish of the Men's and Women's classes in each of the 6 races, 25 points are awarded to the first finisher in the Men's class down to 1 point for 25th place and 25 points are awarded to the first finisher in the Women's class down to 1 point for 25th place.

I don't think the first race is until May, so there shouldn't be any real rush to get teams in.

Ha! Right then, as you were. I saw 23-24 and thought "Crap that's next weekend"
Should be a busy weekend then, EWS round 2, Emerald Enduro in Ireland is 24th May.

Is Irina Kalentieva meant to be 500 points? She was pretty consistent last year (and finished similarly to Annika Langvad overall).

No, she is meant to be 1270 points. Sadly the UCI rankings list her as "Irina Kalentyeva" not "Irina Kalentieva"
I have fixed that now so they are both worth 1270.

I spotted that typo and wondered if that was why. Cool. Better get my team under 8500 then!

Round 1 Sunday night NZ time! There are a couple of additions to the Nove Mesto course. They're slowing riders down coming in to the Rock n Roll section and have taken out one of the bridges in it, and have added some interest in the start/finish area that has always just been fast and flat. Plus 3 feed zones! Good chance riders won't carry bottles at all. Can't wait!
