A new day for the Swedish mtbikers today and what a day. Jenny Rissveds won the World Championships!

Maybe she told Nino Schurter about how to do it because he won the Men Elite afterwards. A good day for Scott, not as good as I hoped for BMC.

Dugast goes tubeless!

Or at least tubeless tubulars, like Tufo:

dugast_cx-11

Regular tubulars look like on the right side. A cotton tube sewed together with a basetape covering and a thread glued on the other side. Added are a latex tube inside. But Dugast is making progress and gluing and adding latex to the cotton so loosing both seems and tubes. Makes the construction better so riders like Nino Schurter and Wout Van Aert can ride with higher pressure but with same grip and plushness. The solution also saves 10% in weight compared to regular tubulars.

Tufo has always done this but with rubber all the way so have been pretty harsh. But who will follow Dugast now when they soon are releasing their tires leading the industry once again?

Boels Rental Ladies Tour stage 5

The day Pauline Ferrand Prevot and Nino Schurter got World Champions there was a smaller race in the Netherlands. Check Redbull.tv for replays of today WCO World Championships.

Check here for a summary from the 5th stage of Boels Rental Ladies Tour:

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:
