Womens XCO Finals La Bresse 2018

Now this is a bike race. The top 4 mtb racers in the world are featured. The lead changes frequently and it’s for the overall win in the UCI World Cup.

The different styles of each racer plays to the various sections of the course. And, each racer has a different style that plays to the different sections of the course: muddy, slippery, steep, rooty, jumpy, and impossibly hard.

Those racing include:

  • World Champ
  • Canadian Champ
  • French Champ
  • Swiss Champ

At the 17 minutes you get the call ups and who’s who. It’s worth the 90 minutes to watch the thrill of victory and agony of defeat. Also see the men’s recap (not as thrilling).

So What Happened?
