Fantasy Ski Racer site offering money prize for top World Cup Finals predictor
There is a lot on the line this week at the Alpine World Cup finals in Schaldming, Austria and not just for the racers who will be vying for crystal globes.
FatasySkiRacer.com, a website created by World Cup racer Steven Nyman designed to connect racers with their fans, will host a “Mega-League” this week for USSA members only. At stake is a $500 cash prize going to the player that collects the most points through the week.
"The main thing we want to do is educate people on ski racing and integrate them more with the ski industry," says Nyman of the site's creation. "In any athletics these days, there's a huge separation between the athletes and the fans…I think this is a good way to connect with the fans. We want to create that camaraderie with people following their favorite ski racers. Hopefully it'll grow the fan base. Hopefully they learn more about the sport."
All USSA members need to do to be entered in the “Mega-League” is email there USSA information and Fantasy Ski Racer username to email@example.com.
