Best Moments – 2015 UCI MTB World Championships / Vallnord, AND

XCO Elite Women

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. 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.

XCO Women U23

Torrential rain began just before the start of the women’s race, turning the course into a treacherous mess of mud and slippery rocks and roots. The conditions made the race almost 20 minutes longer then expected, with riders collapsing after they came across the finish line. http://www.uci.ch/mountain-bike/news/article/forchini-cooper-claim-under-cross-country-titles/

XCO Men U23

Based on the conditions the women faced, the men’s race was shortened by a lap. The rain had stopped by the time the men started, but a cold mist was rolling in, and the mud was getting sticky as it dried, forcing the riders to work harder.

The good weather which showed up on Saturday continued on Sunday, drying the open sections of the course. However, in the forest it was still wet, and the rocks and roots were slick and dangerous, with many riders crashing. SOON
