The overall winner at the end of the weekend will walk home with a Trek Session 9.9 with a limited edition exclusive paint job! More photos and detail on the spec here.Read on to refresh your memory about how the league works and increase your chances of taking home a prize. If you didn't participate in the first rounds, now's the time to enter a team! You may not be able to win the Grand Prize, but you can still win the prize for this final round, so it's worth spending the time to create a team.
3-Day Blackout Period
In order to avoid players copying each other's teams, all rider selections will be hidden for 72 hours before each race. Start playing mind games with your friends that you know are shoulder-hopping your choices.
To make evolving your strategy between rounds easier, we've allowed unlimited trades after each round. Instead of only 2 changes allowed per round, you can now stick with what's working, or change your whole team out after every race. We've added an injury icon to show high profile athletes who are injured. This is not foolproof or exhaustive, so you'll still need to do your own research into your picks. If you know of riders who are injured, mention them in the comments and we’ll keep this updated.
Offices can set up private leagues in addition to playing the main public league. Let the trash talk begin and show Dave in accounting who's boss (sorry Dave).
