After opening stage of Nove Mesto, with the Marathon and XC test, a Lenzerheide the second round of the XC World Cup will take place. Absent Tom Pidcock, who points to the Tour de France, just like the other off-road phenomenon Mathieu Van der Poel. The men's race promises to be open with Joshua Dubau (Rockrider) in splendid shape, Nino Schurter (Scott) never tame and our hope Luke Braidot (Santa Cruz) that right here last year it unlocked.
Among women, Pauline Ferrand Prevot will want to take her revenge on the terrible red Puck Pieterse, who excelled with the Elite despite being U23 (see next paragraph). Evie Richards, after the puncture in Nove Mesto, will also be very fierce. Among the Italians, hopes in Martina Berta.
U23 ATHLETES WITH DEROGATION
There are some athletes who, despite their young age (U23), have decided to participate in the World Cup as an Elite. In fact, the UCI allows this decision. Here are the athletes in detail.
La Downhill opens with many questions, such as the presence of the very young Jordan Williams and Jackson Goldstone who seem ready to win among the Elites. Will they be able to handle the pressure? Instead, many absences among women: Eleonora Farina will not be at the start, recovering from an injury, and Myriam Nicole, again struggling with a chronic headache. Favorite Camille Balanche, winner of the 2022 World Cup. The return to competitions of Tahnee Seagrave, also the victim of a similar problem to Myriam Nicole, is beautiful and interesting.
