 Just finished watching, WOW what a season this is going to be! Ladies' field, so much talent and the men'sa is going to be exciting with the big names and now a Brit! What a ride from Pidcock!!!

 And someone in another article was saying women shouldn’t be paid as much as men because they don’t draw in the crowds! The women is just as if not more exciting in XC

 @enduroNZ: 100% I enjoy the ladies' race just as much in the XCO and the DH.

 Epic racing. The women's always delivers and I for one like seeing competition for Nino. Pidcock had a puncture and still nabbed 5th.
And Fluckiger (sp) had to stand for what seemed like the whole final lap. That must have hurt!
Great watching this round. Roll on the next.

 Indergand had dropper issues in the short track and then Fluckiger in the XCO. It would be interesting to know what the issues where...though I assume we will never find out.

 @Offrhodes: Indergand rode a Fox prototype. Flueckiger broke the cable/remote.

 @Offrhodes: dropper post , if it's working don't F with it. Can see these mechanics messing with them after every ride.

 Super exciting racing all around! Really impressive performances by Koretzky and Pidcock, although it was unfortunate to see Nino lose yet another sprint. I do wonder if it is becoming a psychological thing for him, he used to be pretty effective in a sprint before losing to Sam Gaze back in 2018.

 Yeah, writing was on the wall Koretzky tested him a bit earlier. Knew he could take nino on sprint. Nino going to have to figure this out - competitors found a fault line.

 From this course it just looked like it had to be a massive sprint to make the pass because of the advantage that the first person through that final corner has. They set the speed through it then get to pedal before the following rider can, then it’s a short distance to the finish. Nino definitely went all out in the two flats before the pump section knowing that would decide the race, then knew he could only keep him honest in the sprint.

 It is a sad moment for MTB racing. Ineos brought their doping practices to XC racing now. Pidcock will probably dominate XCO World Cup this year.

 Is Nino like 50 now? I feel like he has been racing at the top level forever.

 What do the asterisks refer to in the lists? There are no footnotes. Anyone?
