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.
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 this second round will run 10 days, from Thursday, July 16 at 12pm PST through Sunday, July 26 at 11:59pm PST and will have 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!
Sound good? Let’s get started. But first, here’s what’s at stake:
At the end of the season the overall Fantasy Downhill Champion will get to design a custom Trek Project One Slash Carbon to bring home kitted out with a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate, RockShox Deluxe RE:aktiv, a Bontrager Line Elite Dropper, Bontrager Line Carbon 30 Wheels, a SRAM X01 Eagle Drivetrain and SRAM Code RSC brakes.
Round 1 Prize
DH Fantasy Trivia
This round’s biggest nerd comes away with a Bontrager TLR Flash Charger Floor Pump worth $129.99 USD, a floor pump with a pressurized chamber makes at-home and on-the-fly tubeless setup a breeze, a Bontrager SE5 Team Issue TLR MTB Tire valued at $84.99 USD each with severe traction for the most aggressive conditions, yet light enough to climb back up, and Bontrager’s latest TLR Tire Sealant, valued at $29.99 USD. They’ll also get 100% Ridecamp Jersey and Short with a combined value of $108, providing exceptional performance and comfort and keeping you on the trails longer, 100% S2 Performance Sunglasses valued at $155 with a rimless cylindrical shield and 360 degree visibility and comfort, and the great fitting 100% Geomatic Glove valued at $34.50.
That’s a $625 USD prize pack for this first round!
IMPORTANT: To maximize your chances to win the Grand Prize Custom Project One Trek Slash Carbon with SRAM and Rockshox components, we recommend you play all rounds of DH Fantasy Trivia ahead of the DH Fantasy season. There will be 9 rounds in total. You will want to maximize your points score for all 9 trivia rounds and races to win the prize bike. If racing is unable to resume, the winner of the bike will be decided by DH Fantasy Trivia alone.
The theme of this second round is Fort William. Good luck!
