5 Things We Learned at Snowshoe XC World Cup 2019
What price would you have got at the start of the season for Nino to 'only' win 2 XCO races? And I agree with an earlier point about more races; the World Cup is about 30 years old, yet still can't manage a season with a decent number of races, i;e 10 - 12. The UCI are obviously asking too much for their hosting fees. When will they wake up?

It's a track that produced great racing - what's not to like? Okay, so it might not have been the most technical, but you need a variety of tracks, they can't all be gnarly & technical. This offered something different - and was great watching on RedBullTV.....

@xrob: I hope he doesn't leave his current team. They allow him to do what he likes; mixing disciplines throughout the year - and managing his rest. Going to a World Tour team would end that; and that would be a waste. I think Corendon may go World Tour in the next year or 2. He says he enjoys riding off road, and that he finds road often boring, so I wonder if he'll cut back on CX and possibly do half the races he currently does - and mix MTB & Road during the spring/ summer.

Tell me about it; ordered a Grail, and had about 3-4 e-mails about delays - in the end cancelled; have ordered a Grand Canyon and it's actually being packed.....

Good point; maybe XC still has some kind of image problem. Here in the UK, the other year I bought one of the monthly MTB magazines ( I can't remember which one) - and they stated they don't really bother with the XC side of the sport. Why?? Its the Olympic MTB discipline. I very rarely buy that mag anymore. Is it because it's like too much hard work? Having to climb under your own power rather using a lift and then descending downhill?

@vinay: It's happened before; in fact earlier this year after a training block he looked heavy legged in the Hoogerheide CX World Cup; but recovered in time.....

@harriieee: He's already on a significant amount of money; He's basically Canyon's No1 rider - and covers 3 disciplines. It's possible his current team will go World Tour in a few years, and they're happy for him to mix & match different disciplines. Another team wouldn't...I hope he stays were he is...

Funnily enough - I was going to say the same; of World Cup CX courses, Namur is probably more technical than this.
