Startlists and Results
Fantasy World Cup 2010

Remember to submit your team to the Fantasy World Cup 2010. 10 of the 13 World Cup events count in the overall – so you’d better set up a team already ahead of the first World Cup event – being the EOC Sprint on Sunday. At the time of writing, startlists for the sprint are not yet available, but they will be available at the EOC 2010 webpage (entries for Sprint Qual by Saturday 11:00 CET – expect the startlist ready after the team official meeting starting at 18:00 CET – maybe also earlier). The World of O Ranking Sprint for men and women is a good starting point for setting up your team for EOC Sprint. See also the results from the last WOC and EOC sprint below.
