Short track. It's a discipline we will hear more about this season as it has been added to the XC program in the World Cup. What is it? It's essentially 30 to 40 minutes spent at the red line on a mixed surface course that is less tech, more speed. Today Annika Langvad and Nicola Rohrbach took the win at the Sea Otter Classic Short Track.

Sergio Mantecon put his head down and dug deep for a good long stint at the front. Unfortunately a piece of debris caught in his drive train and cost him a win.

 Will be interesting to see how the Short Track develops in the World Cups........ Seems it could be more like CX than XC - and could we see a few more XC-ers try CX in the winter?
