La Bresse was an epic race, full of Olympic selection drama, Julien Absalon racing in his home race, and thousands of fans trackside. Today Trek World Racing releases it's video of the behind the scenes build up and participation in the 4th round of the UCI MTB World Cup for XC. Another beautifully shot video, enjoy!

The next video will be from this weekend's 2nd round of the DH World Cup in Val Di Sole, Italy.

 It was a cool video, but would be cool if Emily Batty was in it.

 I am glad that pink bike is starting to cover more than just DH. I love bikes, all types, except fixies. I am glad that I do not need to frequent other forums as much to receive my dose of XC race info.

 Are you serious? PB covers pretty much every type of off road riding, including sometimes fixies (e.g when Chris Akrigg rides one)

 Yeah but pinkbike doesnt advertise much more than just downhill. The fixie video is one out of thousands of videos on here. The last XC post i saw was just a quick recap of the last world cup race.

 Thanks for the XC coverage. Keep it come'n. Not that I don't like coverage of punks on their bikes doing stupid tricks with their pants below their asses. Dude!

 I find it can be hard to watch XC guys trying to ride technical terrain. Case in point, the 0:50 mark of the video, although the guy at 1:03 is slaying. I used to race XC all the time, but you're competing against essentially roadies with knobby tires. I like seeing a course like the one in the video, keep the "mountain" in mountan biking! It keeps the sport 'honest' if you know what I mean.

 very nice to see XC courses much harder then it was in the past that was looking like a road race in the dirt. this rock garden in La bresse is way much harder than any Downhill track in my regionals in Brazil...

 Good for TREK, they were posted in the News... Merida Multivan and Specialized got good vids too about their team. I just hope they're posted on PB too...
