Women of Oz new weekly group rides schedule is out.
DH MTB World Cup Lenzerheide
World Champ Myriam Nicole threw down the fastest run going clear by 4 seconds. The men’s race was close with Amaury Pierron winning by about 1 second.
XCO MTB World Cup Lenzerheide
5 riders battled one other for most of the race and Loana Lecomte was able to go clear and win with an 8 second margin in the final laps. In the men’s race we saw another exciting race with 4 riders battling it out until the finish. The two Swiss riders Nino Schurter and Mathias Fluckiger would crash just before the finish opening the door for first time World Cup winner Luca Braidot.
Giro Donne Stage 8
A crash on the descent could not hold Annemiek Van Vleuten (Movistar) back from securing more time and the overall victory.
Tour de France Stage 9
What a hard first week. Finally a break wins. Bob Jungels (AG2R) would not be denied after several years without a win. The GC battle seems all but over. Although Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) at this point looks unshakable at 39 seconds. Matching Tadej Pogacar’s (UAE) attacks and even attacking once himself. It’s hard to believe Pogacar will lose unless he has a bad day.
