After a long off season, the first round of the 2019 World Cup is just days away. Unlike 2018, the first round of the 2019 World Cup is returning to an old classic in Maribor and a conveniently timed IXS European Cup means top riders were racing the track last weekend. Check out all the goings on from social media.

 I was thinking the same... Collusion?
  • - 1
 @RGonz: since it doesnt appear any evidence is actually required to label it collusion then sure, collusion!
  • + 7
 @thesharkman: no collusion on these bikes, but still plenty of criminal behavior.

 That new demo looks amazing, but it's hard to beat the looks of the previous demo, it was the best looking bike ever made IMO
  • + 1

 is the race Sunday or Saturday?? how come the fantasy team deadline is tonight? shouldn't it close the night before the event? we could at least have quallies to observe then make an informed decision!
  • + 0
 Nevermind, they changed it to saturday morning.
  • + 1
 Race is Sunday. Fantasy deadline is Saturday morning (depending where you live). You get timed training before the deadline, if that helps at all.
  • + 4
 I dunno know why but I think this could be the year for Brosnan
  • + 3
 Young Shandro apparently ripping it up at the Pussy Destruction Factory
  • + 3
 The Laurie and the bulldog clip is from last year, not this year.

 I never really understood what Instagram is. Or what the point of it is rather. Is it just for stalkers and fanboys?
  • + 18
 It's entertainment whilst on the toilet. swipe screen a few times while you do your biz, then swipe your bum. Just dont get the 2 different swipe techniques confused our you're shat
  • + 1
 @jaame Did you watch any of the clips?
  • + 0
 @dglobulator: Of course not. I don't want to fall into that hole. Besides, I never make it past the hashtags.
  • + 1
 Love the course preview from Tawnee and Vali, but can we get a real video not that instragram verticle shite!?
  • + 2
 Is there an official start list?
  • + 1
 I know right! I need to dial my fantasy team but I dont even know if Blenki, suarez, or Gee are racing! those 3 are pretty good value but who knows
  • + 1 has been killing it

 specialized have a new "bighit"

 Now if Wyn can keep pedalling like that. Great training, who needs gym?
  • + 1
 I always think to myself that he's wiped out & exhausted come race day from filming his web content
  • + 2
 That Norco, drool
  • + 1
 Tahnee makes almost as many weird noises as Claudio
  • - 1
 The only difference is Tahnee isn't as annoying. For some reason Claudio's voice irritates my ears, really bad. Nothing personnal Claudio...

 Vali! So stylish!
