Taking a punt on a couple of roughies. No real huge names on my list, but had to have Chimpy.
There are a few very different people in the lineups!
I would have gone with Chimpy, but for $25,000 more you can get Martin!
Switchy's going for the BIG points names, be interesting to see how it all pans out.

Smart money is really on Rach or Tarni. Pretty much a 2 way battle, and easy points.
I’m going to jig mine...but don’t know who I can cut :eek:

Squeezed Tahnee in...I think my team suffered for it. She better perform!!!

Well, you know you'll get points for those. But here's the gamble, they will absolutely MUNCH your budget, and then you're not going to get any other points with the riders you're purchasing from the back of the field and outside points contention.

Like choosing two apples and some pumpkin seeds, vs a bag full of peaches. Can't really fault either logically, can't wait to see which gives the best payout.

Correct...I just see men’s as almost anyone’s game, but the women’s is a bit more assured generally.
Pleased I got Finn and Jack in. Also needed one Devinci rider for Felix, and Norton was unaffordable :(

But Rachael costs 45% of your overall budget.
The women's field is also smaller, and because of the Tahnee/Rachael/Tracey domination, the others are heaps cheaper and will still get you top 10pts!

The men's field is going to have some serious variance in it because of exactly that, anyone could podium. You might have a bit of a upper mid-range looking field, that giving a solid run could just punch it out of the field. You could also watch a $400,000 rider detonate himself on a fairly straightforward kicker and blow himself out of all points.

In case it's not obvious, frothing a little over trying to min/max this list.

Not interested in Rach. Great rider, but I don’t think it will be her year this year. With men, I went on gut more than record.
Am also overthinking it all a bit.

It will be her year again.
Everyone else in the women's field is playing checkers and Rachael is playing chess.

That performance at Champs was ridiculous. Everyone was fighting over milliseconds and then she just showed up and put 10s into them all. It was Sam Hill level stuff. Not to mention, that new bike...there's gonna be motivation to put gold medals on the bike with the family name on it.

Aaaaaand another change. Going to regret changing out Finn, I reckon he’s going to have a big year, but I’m positive Shaw will get over his choking in 2019.

Maes is starting with both, and then deciding after the first few rounds which he's going to stick with for the season iirc. I believe the plan is only to complete an entire season in one or the other though.

New player to the fantasy league, TKershaw is my username. How does the comp work do you get to change your lineup before each race?

Hey Tim. Can change each race according to @Zaf. I’m a noob at it. I assumed you picked once and that was for season.

Sweet will be worth backing some of the locals especially in the enduro league.

That seemed to be the implication from Pinkbike comments. Be nice if they released a rules page to clarify for sure.

Would it be possible to spin off this 'Fantasy Mountain Biking' bullshit into its own separate thread? Pretty please?
