I’ve only caught on to the Web Bull TV coverage of the WC this year – both the DH and the XC coverage is simply fantastic – it’s got me out on the MTB a lot more over the past few weeks – the road bike is gathering dust now!
The coverage is getting better and better. Im off to La Bresse later in the year to see the DH and XC first hand. Hope to hire a bike as well and try to ride the XC course. Might even have a look at the DH course for a laugh.
The question for later in the season is, a certain British rider showed she can win at Lenzerheide last year, if she can do it again this year (and I believe the course there suits her), could we have a potential British XCO World Champion?
My wife did a few world cups at the same time as her starting waaaaay back in 1995 so we are very aware how long she has managed to stay on the scene. Crazy that she’s had a race career longer than the U23 racers have existed on the planet! And somehow fitted in a family along the way (which is rather more disruptive for the female racers than the men). Amazing and serious respect.
