We’ve compiled a whole bunch of highlights from the XC World Championship race in Vallnord, Andorra. With crazy weather and a technical track riders had a tough battle on their hands for the top step!

With a great performance by Pauline Ferrand-Prevot winning her 3rd World title in less than a year and a nerve-wracking battle between Julien Absalon and Nino Schurter.

Elite Men

After rain all week, the sun finally came out for the Elite races. However, the course in the forested sections was still heavily soaked, and the muddy conditions made rock sections slippery and treacherous, with almost every rider crashing at some point in their race.

Elite Women

The women’s race was almost 20 minutes over the usual time due to the difficult conditions, and the men’s race was subsequently shortened by one lap.
