Motorcycle USA announces the launch of its all-new Fantasy Racing section, allowing racing fans to choose their own riders and compete with fellow MCUSA readers.
Tap out the likes of Valentino Rossi, Ben Spies and more in series like MotoGP and World Superbike (with AMA Motocross scheduled to begin in May). Compete against fellow readers in the site-wide league and create your own individual leagues to battle friend and foe alike. Potential players only need a free My MotoUSA login to begin playing, with the first race of the season kicking off February 27 with the World Superbike races at Phillip Island.
If the competitive juices aren’t incentive enough, those who sign up for Fantasy Racing before May 31st are eligible to win a USGP VIP Vacation getaway. The contest winner will receive round-trip airfare and a three-night stay at a Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca approved Hotel Partner along with a pair of tickets for the 2010 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix in July.
The MCUSA Fantasy Racing games work by players selecting from a roster of available riders, with fantasy points based off the rider’s performance in that week’s race. Players will select 1 A-Rider, 2 B-Riders and 1 Team during every race weekend, with selection limits based on series-specific rules. Points earned reflect the FIM points scoring system, with 25 points awarded for a win on down to 1 point for 15th. An additional 5-point bonus will be awarded to the rider posting the fastest lap of the race. Team points will be tallied by the combined results of the race team members, including bonus points. Players will be able to make and alter fantasy picks up to two hours before the race date.
Follow the all the racing news and in the Motorcycle USA Racing page to get the inside scoop on who’s hot, who’s cold, and who’s injured.
