February 06, 2013 (Toronto, ON) – Sorry we meant La Transjurassienne on Feb. 10 not the Tartu Maraton on Feb. 17 – therefore we are pleased to announce that team modification is now open for the FIS Fantasy Marathon Cup 2012/13 Contest – the twist. Contestants can modify their team until 10pm EST on Feb. 9, prior to the 57/76km CL La Transjurassienne in France on Feb. 10. Thanks to one of our contestants in France for assisting with our error.
Contestants may only swap one of their team’s four main skiers – either male or female – not their Outlaw Skier. All points earned to date by the skier that’s out are retained, and only points earned by the new skier from Feb. 10 going forward will be counted.
Note: you only have one chance to make the swap – once completed you will not be able to change your selection so please be sure of your choice before making the change.
