 Emily consistently improving her results over the year. She must be doing well in the overall.

 Podium in last four races, even after dropping a chain in Andorra and getting stuck in 12th place for the first lap in MSA. She has deep legs this year. Hoping she gets her big first win soon.

 The problem was the Flükiger beat Anton Cooper to the rock garden (Beatrice) then slowed down! So Anton had to take a weird line.

 Nino is still first in the overall right? Have to respect his dominace knowing how competitive xc is. Yes I was a spandex warrior in my early days.

 Haven't seen points, but they gave him the leader's jersey at the ceremony...

 He really is a beast, my legs hurt just thinking about the xc racing days.

 Yes Nino still has quite a lead. Mathieu Van der Poel, the only consistent rider in the podium is still second but skipped MSA for the Euro road championships. Sam Gaze has a habit of DNFing, Anton Cooper is irregular. Kerschbaumer has been fast in the 3 last world cups but didn't score a lot of point in the first 3 WC as he got results in the 20th to 42th place.

 Nice, Kate Courtney coming in sixth!

 I don't know if you watched the race, but she got a flat and she should have at least been on the podium. I know it's racing and all, but I felt a little sorry for her as she battled hard in both races and her XC result didn't reflect her talent or fitness.

 @russthedog: nino was sick this weekend. Which is why he started in the 3rd row (was feeling worse Friday than today). Apparently some type of cold/flu.

 @russthedog: He was leading when he dropped his chain
  • + 1
 @Zanebodd: He broke a chain and lost a lot of time. It looked like he was on his way to a win when it happened too.
  • + 1
 @russthedog: Nino flatted in the race as well.
  • + 1
 @russthedog: make it into the lead on the first or second lap when Anton Cooper and him had a gap and he broke his chain. I heard he had a flat after that.
  • + 2
 @OhioOutside: That flat was in the last lap and didn't cost him a place. But he may have catched Cooper before the line had he not flatted as he was ~1m45 from the lead before that last flat.
  • + 1
 @opignonlibre: Thanks, unfortunately, I missed the end of the race.
