As dust settled from one of the most exciting races of the World Cup this year, a blazing sun heated up the mountainside in the Swiss town of Lenzerheide. As some were still finding their way home after partying through the night, cross country riders warmed up for their races. With four races to go, crowds came out in mass.
The Men's Under 23 field had the best of the day, as the temperature remained pleasant for their race. With the World Championships fresh in mind, some riders were fired up as they sought to prove their power.
