We're currently facing performance issues due to increased load during the world championships. As a consequence of this the scoring will not be entirely correct for a little while. But fear not, everything will be back to normal soon!
Fight for the overall, sprint, relay, and distance world cup leader bibs by selecting the best athletes every week!
Races fit into the categories you'd expect them to. Will you target one of the lesser bibs, or sacrifice a chance at them for overall glory?
Sidebets are fun questions with yet-to-be-determined answers that let you earn extra points toward overall victory. Select an answer each week for a chance to win an extra handful of points-- over the season, these could prove critical!
One account is allowed per participant.
Congratulations, you have $100 000 fantasy dollars! You may use this money to buy athletes for your fantasy team. You may not select more than 8 athletes of each gender for your team.
Each athlete’s cost will change throughout the season. If an athlete’s value increases while he or she is on your team, you may keep the athlete on your team without paying the new higher price. However, when you sell an athlete, you will only receive the fantasy dollars which you paid for the athlete, not the athlete’s current price. If you choose to repurchase the athlete, you will have to pay the new price. If an athlete’s value drops, you may sell the athlete for your purchase price and rebuy the athlete for the new lower price. In this way, it is impossible to ever have more than $100 000 fantasy dollars, but the value of the athletes on your team may at times exceed $100 000.
Team slection closes before the first race of a weekend, and before each race of the World Championships and Tour de Ski. Trading will close as close as possible to that first race, but assume that it will be closed up to an hour prior.
A mildly detailed calendar of when team selection opens & closes is included on the events page. FIS's World Cup calendar can be found here, with a full list of competitions (including many not included not in this game) here.
Not all athletes will compete in all races even in a given weekend-- choose wisely! It is up to you to select athletes that will be competing.
Prize details coming soon
If there is a tie in a prize competition, the prize receiver will be selected at random from the winners.
See the Team Challenge page for more information.
