MTB Short Track World Championships Women
Sina Frei (Switzerland) won the first ever Short Track Worlds. An exciting race that was almost a photo finish.
MTB Short Track World Championships Men
American Christopher Blevins wins the first ever Short Track World Championships. It was an exciting race coming down to a sprint finish.
MTB XC World Championships Women
Evie Richards (Great Britain) makes history winning gold becoming the first ever (female or male) British World Champion in cross-country. It was a dominant solo bid after catching and passing the former World Champ Pauline Ferrand Prevot (France).
MTB XC World Championships Men
A battle of the Swiss, Nino Schurter (Switzerland) & Mathias Flückiger (Switzerland). Schurter was unshakable and proved to have the kick in the end. This is his (mind blowing) 9th World Title.
La Vuelta Espana Stage 15
While Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) is not in the red jersey he is still poised to take the lead once they return to the mountains on stage 17. Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) is the biggest threat to Roglic with a 42 second advantage. We must wait and see how he goes in the mountains. Enric Mas (Movistar) also looks good sitting just behind Roglic at 35 seconds. With a long(ish) time trial on the final day Roglic has the advantage. But one bad day and everything could be turned upside down. 1 week to go!
