PROGRAM

The first to enter the game will be the athletes of Cross Country, who will start with the usual short track on Friday evening, before lining up again on Sunday for theXCO. In the women's race few would bet against Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (Ineos Grenadiers) after her dominant performance at Glentress saw her regain both the UCI titles Cross-country Olympic (XCO) is UCI Cross-country Short Track (XCC). However, it is Puck Pieterse (Alpecin-Decuninck) who leads the current UCI World Cup standings XCO.

In the men's competition, Nino Schurter (Scott-SRAM MTB Racing Team) remains the man to beat in theXCO, leading the standings with over 100 points, ahead of Frenchman Jordan Sarrou (Team BMC) in second place and Alan Hatherley (Cannondale Factory Racing) in third place. In the ranking XCC Luca Schwarzbauer (Canyon CLLCTV) dominates the specialty.

Written by

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
