Hi guys,

like in the last 2 years, I'm gonna do a little just for fun Fantasy game for the MXdN.

Prices this year:
3rd: Pride
2nd: More pride
1st: Most pride

Rules
The team with the lowest score wins
Tiebreaker: The person who posted or edited his lineup earlier

Points are made in 3 categories:
Real teams, Fantasy team, Bonus picks

1. Overall team standings
Pick the top three teams overall.

If your team is outside the top 3 you get +1 point
If your team is inside the top 3 but not at the place you predicted you get 0 points
If your team finishes where you predicted it you get -1 point


2. Fantasy team
Pick a fantasy team with 3 riders of your choice from any country. For each category (MXGP, MX2, OPEN) you can pick from the riders that are actually in the respective classes (so for example Paulin is in MXGP class, so you can't pick him for MX2 or OPEN) - otherwise the scoring wouldn't work.
The scoring for the team is exactly like the MXdN format (including the worst moto throw away) and you will get the points according to where your fantasy team would have finished in the overall standings.

Example:
- Your riders finish 8-7-2-3-4-16
- You get 24 points (16th = throwaway)
- With 24 points your team would have finished 3rd overall behind Team USA and Team France - So you get 3 points for your fantasy team.


3. Bonus picks (optional)
- Team on pole position on sunday
- Rider with the fastest overall laptime on sunday (only counting the 3 final races)
- Holeshot (pick one rider, if he holeshots any of his 2 motos on sunday, you will get the -1pt)
Those picks are optional, if you don't pick them, you get 0 points.
For each correct pick you get -1pt
For each wrong pick you get +1pt

I hope it's understandable. - otherwise just let me know. Basically the same as the last years.

Just post your picks below. You can change them anytime (please edit the post and don't post a new one), until the deadline - but keep the tiebreaker in mind!

Deadline is the begin of the first qualifying moto on saturday, so you CAN change your picks after free practice!


Here's an entry list
It's not 100% up do date though! e.g. it still shows Febvre for team France.

A lot of this depends on where USA is at, Herlings is going there to win the race and Tomac is going to win the event. In my mind that makes a difference espically in Moto 3.

Have a feeling about a mechanical DNF and low finishing overcompensating riding error, we’ll see...

OK free practice is over.
You might want to reconsider your picks. Also take into account that it might be raining again for tomorrow.

You can post or edit picks until 2:30PM local time - that's when the first qualifying moto starts

|

10/6/2018 10:09 AM

I'll contribute to this before any gate drops happen.

1.
USA, Netherlands, Belgium

2.
Jeffrey Herlings, Dylan Ferrandis, Jeremy Van Horebeek

3.
Pole Position on Sunday: Netherlands
Fastest lap time: Eli Tomac
Holeshot: Justin Barcia

10/6/2018 11:29 AM

That's it. Please don't post any more teams and don't edit existing ones.

Sweet Coldenhoff with the holeshot! Bummed for those guys though.

Best Lap: Herlings
Holeshot: Herlings, Coldenhoff, Lupino
Pole: NED

Congrats Nuffsaid!
The only one to let team USA off the podium - and the winner

Also CoccoBill who had the perfect fantasy team - Herlings (winner MXGP), Prado (winner MX2) and Coldehoff (winner OPEN)

Crazy to see that only 5 out of 15 guys would have won with their fantasy team even though we could pick from any rider from any country.

Me third in the Fantasy MXoN and Italy second in the Real MXoN!
Next: win the lottery!
