Yesterday's rain caused a slight panic for many riders as they geared up for the XCO World Champs. Minds calmed as the sun warmed up the Czech hillside at Nove Mesto, cranking up the heat significantly with a humidity which would make Cairns jealous. The juniors got their chance for glory today, and they gave it their all, hoping for a result that would keep them on the path towards elite stardom.
Nove Mesto is rocking as today's junior women's race was won by Ida Jansson, with Lisa Pasteiner in second and Martina Berta in third. The men's race was won by Thomas Bonnet, followed by Vital Albin and Tobias Halland.
Prepare for insanely crowded, intense racing tomorrow.
