XCO WC Nove Mesto by Specialized and Merida

Now the videos from the past weekend starts to come up. Start with the biggest. Jaroslav Kulhavy winning on home soil should be pretty fun, and on what seems to be the World Cup with most spectators:

And Multivan Merida with Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjå getting a 2nd place after Jolanda Neff:

XCO World Cup Nove Mesto na Morave, the elite

First World Cup of the year is finished and what a start. Many good riders and good fights. Jolanda Neff was in the lead together with the 20 (!) years older Gunn-Rita Dahl Flesjå but took the win. Annika Langvad had some problems with wet rocks and crashed more than she hoped for loosing 3rd place to Pauline Ferrand Prevot and on last lap Catharine Pendrel. A funny thing is that everyone except Gunn-Rita on the podium is world champions in different cycling disciplines now 😉

Men elite got as excited with Jaroslav Kulhavy back in shape. Really impressed by him yesterday and even taking the win in front of Nino Schurter. Julien Absalon never reached them so ended 3rd:

Olympic XCO today!

Don’t miss womens race at 13.30 CET. With the fast swede Alexandra Engen that got this special bike for today:
