[UPDATED] Final Elite XC Results & Overall Standings from the Mairiporã XC World Cup 2024

Apr 15, 2024
by Ed Spratt  
The results are in from an unmissable day of XC racing at the first round of the 2024 World Cup series in Brazil.

Jenny Rissveds rode a clever race on her way to dominate the final lap to cross the line 27 seconds up taking the first elite XCO win of 2024. XC racing doesn't get much better than this as we saw a close battle throughout the five laps with lead changes and attacks spread out across the nearly hour and twenty minutes of racing.

The trio of Jenny Rissveds, Haley Batten and Savilia Blunk were regulars at the sharp end of the race but a final lap attack from Jenny Rissveds proved too much to overcome. With Rissveds far out in front, it became a battle between Batten and Blunk for second although sadly Batten would crash in a loose turn giving up a chance for the silver medal. It was a great day for USA racers with four riders inside the top ten making the Olympic selection choice very difficult.

Following the incredible spectacle of the women's race the elite men managed to keep the XC hype rolling as the fresh course in Brazil brought nail-biting tactical racing with everything coming down to an incredible final lap attack from Christopher Blevins. After nearly three years since his first XCO win at Snowshoe in 2021, the US racer is back on top in Brazil.

After a close-knit group held the lead for most of the race, the front runners came back together forming a large group of 13 riders going into the final lap. After several attacks failed to reward riders with any lead it was Blevins' big effort up one of the steepest climbs on the course that pushed him ahead. Despite the best efforts of those following nobody could shut the gap down before the line handing Blevins the victory by two seconds.

Check out the results below.

 The US just had the best World cup it's ever had by far, holy shit
  • 29 2
 In recent times. In the 90s had Dave Wiens, John Tomac, Ned Overend, Ruthie Matthes, Sara Ballantyne, Ruthie Matthes, Juli Furtado, and Alison Dunlap.

 @dougfs: Of course, I just tend to forget because I wasn't around back then lol

 Ever is always hard, but yeah, good day. Add in Riley Amos winning the U23 and it’s a solid result, and an especially proud day for the citizens of a small rail road town in the middle of nowheresville. Must be something about the residual uranium in the water. Or that the children are delivered directly from the womb to a bicycle.

 @dougfs: don’t forget Ruthie Matthes!

 Batten made the women’s race. Constant attacks and shredding the descents. Blevins had the perfect tactical race. Very consistent average and one decisive attack. Congrats to both of them.
  • 2 0
 @dougfs: But I don't recall 4 Merican women in the top 10 ever, but I don't recall a lot.
  • 8 0
 @suspended-flesh: It has been a very long time since it happened, nearly 3 decades. The last time was at the Vail World Cup in 1997, 6 of the top 10 in Elite Women were US riders.
2nd: Ruthie Matthes
3rd: Tammy Jacques
5th: Rene Marshman
6th: Alison Dunlap
8th: Beth Coats
9th: Golden Brainard

 Can't wait to see how USA Cycling can screw up another olympic selection.
  • 1 0
 That was one of the best weekends of racing in years and years IMO. U23? Killed it, Elite? absolutely killed it even more. Really, really happy the US is getting it all together this year. Kate looked great too. Wow. That Mens elite race was amazing. The amount of talent is so crazy. Plus that track looked amazing. The speed of some of those downhill sections was nuts. That's the type of track I think the pro's really deserve. Not dangerously technical, but steep climbs, high speeds, it had everything.

If the first race was this good, this whole year will hopefully be one for the books.

 @packfill: yeah, if it's anyone other than Blevins/Amos and Blunk/Batten (maybe Gibson depending on the next few rounds) they'll be screwing themselves.

 Excellent race, coverage was good, only thing I would complain about was the focus was too much on the leaders, so some battles behind were missed. Jenny winning is awesome, she just doesn't give a fuck. Congratulations to the US girls, super strong showing. Good to see Jolanda on the podium again too.

 Jenny winning, Jolanda on the podium, and multiple Americans with panache fighting for the top spots. Can't ask for a better race!
  • 20 1
 Blevins! Congrats! What a ride!
  • 17 1
 That was fun, 4 USA riders in the top is incredible, Kelsey Urban went from last at the start of the short track race to 8th is amazing
  • 7 0
 I think Urban deserves a giant pat on the back. She has always been kind of pack filler, not meant in a bad way, just not in the top part of races. But you can tell something has snapped within her. She did not back down and looked very comfortable fighting at the front. Jenny has assembled a killer little team I think. They don't seem super concerned about stuff, I love their plain outfits, riding a US bike brand to boot. How can you not like Team 31?

 @shorttravelmagazine:

My favorite XC team for sure!

"The team’s name also brings attention to Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that “every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities.“

 Great racing, but discovery for the love of all that is holy: sort your shit out. Get a gyro stabilized HD camera for your drone, my $500 second hand, 3 year old DJI shoots better footage. And stop flipping away from the leaders right when the passing starts! It’s infuriating!
  • 13 1
 I have no doubt that your $500 second hand, 3 year old DJI shoots better footage, but have you tried livestreaming said footage

 4 US riders in the top 10.
  • 4 1
 This is why we need more races in the Americas, a few Euro big names haven't travelled across and it does seem to balance things out
  • 8 0
 US Olympic selection period is first few World Cups of this year. US riders are flying right now for that, nothing to do with some European riders not making the trip. The same US riders would be flying if the racing was in Europe. Seems odd to wait this late to choose your riders, means they have to peak twice in the same season.
  • 8 7
 @dougfs: you think there would still be 4 US riders in the top 10 if PFP, Pieterse and Mitterwalner were racing?
  • 9 0
 Worst case they have four US riders in the top 13. That's still incredible.
  • 3 0
 @dougfs: they had steps to clinch a spot last year but none of the riders met that criteria. The American women were 14, 16, 17, and 18 in the final standings last year. Would've been a toss up at best to pick which two of those four would be the strongest this year.
  • 16 0
 @HankHank: PFP, Pieterse and Mitterwalner undefeated in hypotheticals!
you have to show up and race or no one gives a crap.
  • 2 1
 @HankHank: we don't know for sure if it is timezone, or if us riders are peaking too early in the season. There weren't that many euro big names missing. Anyway we knew already that Blunk, Batten and Blevins were podium contenders.

What surprised me are not the people that were in the front, but more some albeitly aging but still big names that were past 30th place like Nino Schurter, Titouan Carod, Sebastian Fini, Charlie Aldridge, David Valero, Maxime Marotte, Anton Cooper...
  • 3 0
 @opignonlibre: Charlie Aldridge is the current U23 XCO World Champion..........
  • 2 0
 @Starch-Anton: Yeah I know he is young, I just didn't want to rephrase everything because of the lone exception.

Fact is, it is surprising he was so low in the classification and this was as surprising to me as seeing Schurter that far away too.
  • 1 0
 @HankHank: I kept thinking where Pidcock would have been. He'd likely have been in that first group of 4, then what would he have done? Doesn't matter, but to see some of the biggest names way down a few minutes back, crashes or not, was kind of interesting. But we all should realize, one race does not a season make. Nino could get to europe and start killing it again for the rest of the year.

 Didn't watch it.
And p*ssed off by the blatant price gouging by the UCI and WBD. Last year 12 months GCN+ subscription, for all of MTB, Road Racing, BMX etc and the documentaries was $49 USD.
It wasn't until 24 hrs before this race that the UCI dropped where you can subscribe for the rest of the world and for MTB alone its now $69 USD!! You price gouging Bellends!
  • 7 4
 Id be watching right now, even went for subscribtion, since i still think its absolutely worth it.

But can't choose commentary language on eurosport.

Last year with gbn+ or whatever it was called it was all chill. But for this year SORT YOUR SHIT OUT! Just make the worldcup available to the people. I don't mind the paywall as i am willing to pay but add the service and convince!

 Yeah… I've got eurosport but ended up watching a pirated stream anyway because the Norwegian commentary was so shit…
  • 2 0
 here in switzerland it's a mess but if you choose the correct version (sometimes called Multilanguage, sometimes anglais, sometimes nothinf at all) you can choose the audio track... but they have like 5 streams all with similar but slightly different names and it's a total mess to find the right version
  • 3 0
 @shreditlikeitshot: There is always one stream that is only one language and with ad breaks as if you were watching it on your tv and another that lets you choose language without ad breaks.
I always search for the sport I want to watch (in this case it would be MTB) and sometimes only then you will see all active streams. (If you go to current programm there is most likely only one or two streams showing up)
Then for me there is is a stream described as German commentary and one as German commentary without breaks. Only the second one lets you chose the language.

Before Discovery+ I watched all Eurosports streams somewhere else where they did a much better job displaying what's on at the moment, it has definetly taken some time to get used to discoverys system if you can call it that haha.
I hope it helps for the next time.

 Not sure if there are any zone restrictions, but almost as soon as races finished they were available in their entireity on YouTube for free.

 @Wyndbrook: Oh really? I saw the full U23 race was available but only highlights for Elites. I'll have to VPN over to the UK and check my YouTube. The YouTube full replay was great.

 Insane racing today - Rissveds could not have had better racecraft.

 Also interesting to wonder how the Sat XCC and Sunday XCO affected riders especially in heat/humidity. Did some of the older veterans have a tough time without the rest day in between? I know Nino said he was fighting something but it seemed there were a lot of really bad races for many of them.

 4 American women in the top 10. Never seen that before, even in the Dunlap / Haywood / McConneloug days. Shame we didn't get a win but the competitiveness after years of so few top American riders is amazing to see. Now let's get more than one American man in the world cup tour please.

 Max is definitely an upgrade over GCN for the streaming. Seems like they listened to some feedback and the commentary and pre-post show were better. Getting Bart & Avincini involved was a positive as well. Definitely feeling very stoked for the season!
  • 15 15
 I would be watching this right now if it were freely available on the internet. Instead I can't be bothered and am losing touch with the sport. How to lose casual fans in one quick step! Gonna finish up some chores and go riding instead I guess!
  • 11 14
 Well I'm sure it'll carry on just fine without you.
'Casual' fans can make do with highlights surely?
  • 6 8
 Yes please go for a ride. Make it a really long ride. Enjoy!

 It's not free to put on broadcasts. We got spoiled with RB but can't blame them for wanting to recoup cost. People bitching about $9.99 monthly plan that also comes with other content is just getting annoying. You sound entitled.

 I paid the $150, the no ads version, for the year. The "with ads" was $100 a year. This is in the US. Did I enjoy paying that? Not at all. And I miss the GCN app, the races were all I had to find. Now the races are buried amongst a ton of crap that I am never watching.

I think $100 a year is not too much to ask for a year. But, unlike GCN, I can't watch all the races I want. I'd have to also subscribe to Flobikes, and Peacock for the Tour and other races. A true train wreck. Luckily I get Peacock included in my home internet plan. And not interested in flobikes at all.

I tried watching the free youtube feeds. But there is no commentary at all. Just the race. Which for some reason bored the crap out of me. I gave it about 15 minutes and couldn't take it. I like the commentary, no matter who it is. So I just paid the $150 and that's that.

I did cancel Amazon Prime, Zwift, and Youtube Premium all at once. So I thought I could handle the $150 for something I truly love watching. And Kate the host isn't horrible to watch LOL.

 Freaking gringos represented across the board. U23s, Ladies and Blevins. I guess us American have to go all on with Blevins since MTB is supposedly dead to Gravel and e-bikes.

 Looks like you can watch all the races on max on Amazon for $15 a month with ads and without the sports add on, can anyone confirm?

 @wilsonians: Advertisers paying for the broadcast in exchange for our eyeballs has much more chance of increasing fan support than a paywall.

@gulogulointhearctic "hardcore" fans rarely become so without being casual fans first. You lose the casuals and the hardcore numbers follow. Then they'll not carry on just fine much longer.
  • 1 0
 @mrkkbb: I paid for the full year...and if they jack my price up, I'm cancelling the whole thing. That's just stupid. $150 a year to get back what I had on GCN for 1/3rd the price is enough.
