Nino Schurter and Julien Absalon have dominated cross country mountain biking in the last decade. Both have already won five World Champion titles. In Cairns one of them could make it six. No one doubts Schurter's strength as he has won every single World Cup round this year, but Absalon has been getting back in shape and is eager for a win. They are not the only contenders either. Kulhavy, Marotte, Sarrou, Tempier, Fumic, Flückiger...all eager to dethrone the two who have dominated for so long. Cairns, Australia.2017 XCO Men Elite World Championships

Nino Schurter has ended a perfect season. Six World Cup wins. One World Championships title. The competition seems to be getting close to edging towards a win, but so far Schurter has not budged under the pressure. Next year will prove interesting, as Mathieu van der Poel will be riding a full XCO season adding some more fuel to the fire. Will Schurter be beaten?
Stay tuned for tomorrow's DH finals.
