- So whose gonna win the Olympic MTB XC on Sat & Sun?
Most long term mtb weekend warriors could ride the course at a pottle pace …. but simply not at that pace for that length of time under racing pressure without making mistakes. It is a simple fact…. Otherwise you would not be posting on here you would have just finished racing or preparing for tomorrow depending what sex you arePosted 3 years agoTrimixMember
Its like the Olympic course we had in the UK. Looked easy on the TV. I rode it and it was hard. Almost as if it was designed to have no flow and obstacles just to hinder you and make it harder at a race pace. I really enjoyed riding round it and it was nothing like the TV pictures. The Rio one is quite likely the same.
There was some good footage of a practice race on YouTube from the riders perspective. It looked bloody hard at a fast pace. Easy if you ride it like a trail center, but not if your flat out.
Anyone who has messed about with a GoPro will know filming trails so they look like they do in real life is pretty impossible.
I enjoyed the race and was surprise by the result. Rissveds was in a category all on her own. WTF happend to Neff ?
Oh, and Nino will be throwing whips off every obstacle on his way to winning 🙂
Sagan will go back to road riding once he realises mtb’ing is harder.Posted 3 years ago
