I am very excited to announce the launch of Noah Hoffman Fantasy Cross Country at noahhoffmanfantasyxc.com! This is an expansion of last year’s very successful World Championship Fantasy League, and the goal is the same: to encourage people to follow international cross country skiing by giving them a personal stake in the outcome of the races. Once again, my sponsors have donated incredible prizes including top-of-the-line skis and poles from Madshus, two GPS Heart Rate Monitors from Suunto, roller skis from Finn Sisu, glasses from Julbo and a ton of other cool stuff.
As always, the league is free to enter and anyone can join. This year the league will include women and men and will cover the entire World Cup season. There will be prizes for the winner of each of the eleven World Cup weekends, as well as prizes for the top three in the season-long competition. This year’s website and platform are way better than last year thanks to the incredible work of programmer Adam Mahar.
So, pick your team of eight men and eight women for the opening weekend in Kuusamo (by Thursday, November 26th), create personal leagues to compete against your friends and have fun. Encourage your family, friends, teammates and competitors to pick a team to play against you. Once again, the website is noahhoffmanfantasyxc.com. Most importantly, follow the races on the live stream, keep up with news from your favorite athletes and get out on skis as much as possible!
