Overall Standings - Nove Mesto World Cup XC 2019

May 27, 2019
by James Smurthwaite  
Nino Schurter s every move was being closely monitored.

With the dust settled in Nove Mesto, let's see who sits where in the overall until round 3 in Andorra in July.

Elite Men:

1st. Mathieu Van Der Poel: 700 pts
2nd. Mathias Flueckiger: 500 pts
3rd. Nino Schuter: 485 pts
4th. Maxime Marotte: 425 pts
5th. Henrique Avancini: 370 pts

Elite Women:

1st. Kate Courtney: 700 pts
2nd. Jolanda Neff: 490 pts
3rd. Chloe Woodruff: 385 pts
4th. Rebecca McConnell: 378 pts
5th. Anne Tauber: 350 pts

A perfect weekend for Van Der Poel see him extend his lead at the top of the standings from Flueckiger. However, as he's due to miss the next few rounds, he may not get to enjoy the leader's jersey for very long. Schurter and Flueckiger are separated by just 25 points and look set to battle it out for dominance through the rest of the season.



Another stellar weekend for Kate Courtney sees her sitting comfortably at the top of the standings. She has a lead of more than 200 points back to Jolanda Neff after only two rounds. Rebecca McConnell makes the biggest strides forwards, gaining ten places after her heroic second place finish.

 I am almost sorry for Nino, he Has been invincible, but MVDP shows there's new generation that is taking the lead, not only in XC but also DH and Enduro. I'm still a big fan of Nino though!

 Nino said it already a few years ago. If there was one rider to be afraid of, it was MDVP! Today MDVP proved him right. MVDP wins what he wants to win, on the road and in the dirt. He is the next generation Biker!

 UCI can't find their ass with both hands. Two USA women in the top three, HELL YEAH !!!

 This is great for the sport. Interest from Americans always brings more everything to a sport. If Americans could enjoy it on TV, then every pro and every mountain biker will benefit.

 How many rounds is MVDP gonna miss, and can he stil mathematically be in contention for the overall podium despite these absences?
  • + 7
 They were talking about 3 in total at redbull tv (next 2 and last one in USA).

 Why is he missing races?
  • + 4
 He did a full cyclocross season. Short but very intense spring road racing and has now won a WC mountain bike race. I think he deserves a break. And qualifying for the Olynpics was a big goal which of course he’s accomplished.@warmerdamj:

 Anyone else noticed last year race calendar in header of team standings? Lazy UCI.

 What's up with the UCI team standing calendar ? Looks like the one from last year.

 "Jolanda neff isn't doing so well"
  • + 1
 I think she is lacking brute strength in her legs since she likes to spin at higher cadence. Courtney has clearly has more brute strength and is pushing high gears. Neff may excel more on tracks that don't have steep climbs.
  • + 2
 Jolanda is over 100pts ahead of number three. After two world cup races (and two sprints) I'd call that quite decent.
  • - 2
 Nino may have to go back to 27.5 to beat Van Der Poel.
  • + 2
 nobody ever goes back.
