Cyclocross Magazine’s fantasy cyclocross returns with our 2019 World Championships edition.
Show your international cyclocross knowledge by predicting the top seven finishers in the Elite Women’s and Elite Men’s races—and some bonus primes—for the chance to win some prizes from our generous sponsors.
How it Works
Scoring for our fantasy Worlds contest is similar to our Fantasy U.S. Nationals contest from December. Get 10 points for each podium finisher you pick correctly with a bonus for getting the positions correctly. Also get 10 points for each spot of 4th through 7th you get correctly. Two primes for each race are worth 5 points.
New this time around, each rider who outperforms your picks for 4th through 7th gets 5 points. For example, if you picked Christine Majerus 6th at 2018 Worlds, you would get 5 points since she finished 4th.
Full rules and the prizes are below the entry form.
Full start lists are available on the UCI website.
