November 12, 2009 (Toronto, ON) – SkiTrax is pleased to once again present our popular international FIS Fantasy World Cup 2009/10 Contest for players around the world. The Veissemann XC FIS World Cup season begins in Beitostölen, Norway on Nov. 21, as the ski world prepares for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games next February.
In this Olympic year we’re presenting a unique 3-in-1 Fantasy Contest package with up to $10,000 overall in prizes including our Fantasy FIS World Cup and FIS Tour de Ski 2009/10 contests followed by our 2010 Olympic Games contest for exciting season-long action – the only Nordic contests of their kind worldwide.
Here’s how the FIS Fantasy World Cup Contest works
Register your team of four (4) men, and four (4) women including two (2) Outlaw Skiers – one (1) male and one (1) female not in the top 15 of the FIS World Cup overall rankings. All menus for skier selection are available at skitrax.com to register your team.
Deadlines, Points, Prizes
The deadline to register your FIS Fantasy World Cup team, or to make any changes, is 10pm EST on November 20 – the day before the Beitostölen WCup launches the season-long competition. Earn bonus points such as TdS Points or Olympic Points along with other opportunities to score points over other contestants – all contest rules and information is available at skitrax.com.
Points will be awarded following each World Cup based on each skier’s performance and published regularly at skitrax.com so you can follow your team’s progress all season long and see how you compare with the actual FIS standings and other players.
