Hey!

I just wanted to make a quick post about a website I just finished up for 2016 Supercross Fantasy players: motoxracing.com

It's completely free, and the roster system is simple and intuitive, so if you've never played in a fantasy league before, I think you'll really enjoy this site as a way to learn what fantasy leagues are all about. Plus, it's one more thing to get into as an MX fan.

I made an article about the roster system and overview of the site here in case you're interested: http://motoxracing.com/news/2016/2016-sx-fantasy-league-ready

You can create public/private groups so that you have your own fantasy rankings with just you and your friends, and there is already a VitalMX group setup on the site. You will also have fantasy statistics in your profile, and will be able to track when users update their rosters, chat on the activity wall, and view other peoples fantasy stats and previous rosters throughout the season.

I'd really love if you guys gave it a try. It's been a bit of a project for me - but a fun one!

Cheers,

Yep, groups are always relevant for both Supercross & Motocross each year. So that VitalMX group is still relevant now. This way a group doesn't need to be created or updated for each season, and the group-specific rankings will only show the active members in said group for the current series. So if no one is active in a group for this season, the rankings won't show anyone (And vice versa.)

With that being said, I realize I should probably set up a way for users to know whether or not a group has "active" members in the current series - as some may not have any active members for Supercross.

Cool i will sign up, does anyone know what happened to motox dream from a few years ago ? I think Denny Stephenson was one of the guys who ran it but it said it would be back and never saw it again.

For those interested in the point/roster system, it's like this:

Roster setup:

450/250 Riders:
You will get to pick 5 riders per class, following these rules which are automatically enforced (the site will make things easy for you.)

- 1st slot: can choose any rider, and gets a 10% bonus to their race points.
- 2nd slot: can choose any rider.
- 3rd slot: any rider outside top 5 in point standings.
- 4th slot: any rider outside top 5 in point standings.
- 5th slot: any rider outside top 10 in points, 20% bonus to their race points.

Wildcard slot:

Each week's race will have a new wildcard option. It'll be a random question, with minor bonus points if you were right (around 3 points), with an option to take a free point instead to play it safe. They will be questions like "Who will win the 450 Main Event," or "Who will do better, Trey Canard - Jason Anderson - or Davi Millsaps?"

Point System:

Your overall points will be the total of the points scored by the riders on your roster from the official main event. Including the bonus percentage points from the 1st and 5th slot, and from the wildcard slot if you were right.

Overall

This is a simple setup, as you are managing a small "team" per class instead of picking ~20 guys per class like other leagues (which can be fun in it's own right!) Even with the simplicity in rosters, the variations in overall points that people score is huge -- last year we rarely saw players scoring the same points.

You whooped us all pretty good last year angry

ps. I'm working on migrating over the 2015 Fantasy MX series onto the new site, so that you can view the old rankings and everyone who competed in it has an official score on their profile for that series (as it will for all series moving forward.)

So you'll enjoy a nice big 1st place on your profilesmile
