While the World Cup circus is on pause and the world’s top riders are locked down, we’ve been rewatching old races and classic mountain bike DVDs and nerding out about whether the rainbow curse is real or not… and many of you are likely doing the same. To put all that World Cup DH knowledge to use, we’re running DH Fantasy Trivia while we wait for DH racing to start back up.
Stay tuned for the prize winners from this round to be announced tomorrow!

Stay tuned for Round 3! Remember, these trivia quizzes WILL count towards the overall DH Fantasy League, so if you’re all all-time World Cup nerd (or just have a knack for guessing!) you could be the lucky person who gets to design a custom Project One Trek Slash carbon frame to bring home kitted out with Rockshox suspension and SRAM components!
Each trivia round will feature 15 questions and feature prizing for the overall Top Nerd. Once racing resumes (fingers crossed!), we’ll continue with the regular Fantasy DH League and combine the points from Fantasy Trivia with Fantasy DH for a total of 9 rounds and crown the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion and present the Grand prize of a complete bike!
