Welcome to the 2010 MTB World Cup Fantasy Tour - Sponsored by Gestev!
This year, the organizers of the 2010 Mountain Bike World Championships in Mont Ste Anne, Quebec, Canada - Gestev - are working with Canadian Cyclist to bring you the first ever World Cup Fantasy Tour. The top prize is a VIP package for the World Championships, including accommodation and all access passes!
Here is a list of the prizes that Gestev has generously donated:
1. Accommodation at Mont Ste Anne for two (2) people from August 31 - September 6. VIP passes to all events at the World Championships.
2. Mountain bike valued at $1200 (brand to be announced)
3. A package of 2010 World Championships merchandise, valued at $250
There are a couple changes from the rules we use for our Road Fantasy Tours, so please read them carefully! An important one to note is that we are limiting the number of team entries per person to five (5). A second one is that, as always, your team consists of 9 riders - go over, and we will arbitrarily knock off the last on your list...

Each participant must pick 9 riders. You can pick riders all from one discipline (4X / DH / XCO), or just men or women if you wish, but remember that riders cannot score points in events they don't enter!
