What are American Cyclocross Racers Worth?

Belgium has it all figured out - based on their criteria of course!  The Belgians run a very popular Fantasy Cyclocross game called Gouden Cross (Golden Cross) where you choose your fantasy team, then watch how they do throughout the season. 

When putting your Fantasy Team together, you choose nine riders while staying below the team budget of 200 million euros.  The charts provided show the value, in millions, of each rider. 

But before you choose a full American squad, be forewarned.  There is a caveat;  the only races that count for the game are European events like World Cups, GVA Trofee, Superprestige and a few others like Overijse, Scheldecross, Niel Jaarmarktcross and Sint-Michelsgestel.

Jonas and i are submitting our teams this week.  One team costs 7€, btw.  If you want to try your luck, go to .

AND if you want to PLAY FOR FREE, go to CYCLOCROSS Magazine's Fantasy Cyclocross.
If you play CYCLOCROSS mag's version, you may just win a super cool belgian prize that was just donated by one of the TOP racers. Keep your eyes on CYCLOCROSS Mag's site for the announcement.

I also registered my team on CX Mag.  Of course i chose myself as one of the racers!  You gotta believe in yourself!
