Fantasy GP Game Rules:

OVERVIEW
Fantasy GP players will choose 1 A-Rider, 2 B-Riders and 1 Team during every race weekend. Each Rider earns fantasy points based off their performance in that week’s GP race. Points earned reflect the FIM points scoring system, with 25 points awarded for a win on down to 1 point for 15th (see table below). 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 can make and alter fantasy picks up to one hour before the race date, but remember to check cut-off times as race dates and times fluctuate based on time zone and round schedules. Players have the option to receive a pick reminder email 48-hours before the round is locked out. Simply check the remind me box in Edit Team Info.

RIDER SELECTION
The GP rider pool is divided into two groups: A-Riders and B-Riders. Players select 1 A-Rider and 2 B-Riders per race. Each rider can be selected a maximum of 6 times per season.

A-Riders are the top factory riders in the GP series. There are six A-Riders for the 2014 Fantasy GP season, listed below. Each A-Rider can be selected a maximum of 6 times in the year. Unlike B-Riders, there will be no additions to the A-Rider pool in the case of injury. So choose wisely.

  • Cal Crutchlow 
  • Andrea Dovizioso
  • Marc Marquez 
  • Dani Pedrosa
  • Jorge Lorenzo
  • Valentino Rossi

B-Riders are the remaining riders in the GP paddock. Each B-Rider can be selected a maximum of 6 times in the year. The points earned by both B-Riders contribute to the total fantasy score. There are 18 B-Riders available for 2014, but in the event of substitute riders, the B-Rider roster may be expanded during the season.
