Bike Check: Jordan Sarrou's World Champs Winning BMC Fourstroke
All riders had this small sadlle bag looking thingy under their seats... I doubt it was an actual saddlebag with tools but idk what it actually was. Maybe something to do with timing or data recording. The usual small timing chips on the forks maybe don't work when covered in mud?

Photo Epic: Rumble in the Alps - Leogang XC World Champs 2020
It was heartbreaking for Marotte but he would have done the same... This is the world championships race, you don't get there if you feel bad for your competitors and let them "win." Also Cink maybe didn't even know Marotte had a flat tire...

Course Preview: XC Behemoth - Leogang XC World Champs 2020
@AndrewFleming: Some riders are actually considering riding a HT (from what I've seen on socials) which doesn't happen very often... I am thinking because there is a lot of climbing, mostly on smooth paths. So lighter bike might be the way to go because you don't really need the extra traction the FS gives you? Idk.

Final Results: Nove Mesto XC World Cup 2020 - Round 2
@mtb1101: Well sure. I think we can all agree this is not a "season." And I believe noone claimed this to be a true season. The point is, some racing is better than no racing under this years circumstances imo. Or would you rather have everything cancelled and start over next year? That doesn't make any sense to me. I personally enjoyed all the races and I am excited for World champs next week.

Final Results: Nove Mesto XC World Cup 2020 - Round 2
@mtb1101: I still don't really understand what you are complaining about tho. We all understand this is not a normal XC season. But having a normal season is not an option. I'd rather have a "cram course" than nothing at all. And I am sure that is same for the athletes. Also if you look at the results, pretty much same people did good in both races. Burning out had nothing to do with it. Some people just came with a better form and they managed to sell it. It sucks for people who did not have a good form as there is no time for adjustmens, but that is sport and that's how it is sometimes... Not sure if by "seasons winner" you mean overall World Cup ranking. Because there will be no overall points given to anyone.

Final Results: Nove Mesto XC World Cup 2020 - Round 2
@mtb1101: But there are special circumstances this year, aren't there? The fact that all other events were cancelled without replacement only shows that XCO is probably in a pretty bad spot rn. If it wasn't for this double header in NMNM, ther wouldn't have been any XC World Cup at all. I haven't heard any of the athletes complaining... They all seem pretty happy that they can finally race and they found a way to survive those 6 days. Sure, it is not comparable to a normal season but it's better than nothing. And I am pretty sure both athletes and their sponsors would agree.
