Lars Forster to Miss Nove Mesto World Cup After Albstadt Crashes
[B]4.2.026[/B] The sections of a cross-country course that involve steep or potentially dangerous slopes must be marked and protected using [B]non-metallic[/B], preferably PVC, stakes (slalom stakes), 1.5 to 2 meters high. Yeah, sure: [L=https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p6pb17217608/p6pb17217608.jpg]Image 1[/L] - [L=https://foto-thumbnails.mtb-news.de/cache/1420_auto_1_1_0/58/aHR0cHM6Ly9mc3RhdGljMS5tdGItbmV3cy5kZS92My8yMy8yMzgyLzIzODI2NzItdmk1YWZyM3ltdjk0LWltZ18yMzA0LW9yaWdpbmFsLmpwZw.jpg]Image 2[/L] - [L=https://foto-thumbnails.mtb-news.de/cache/1420_auto_1_1_0/f9/aHR0cHM6Ly9mc3RhdGljMS5tdGItbmV3cy5kZS92My8yMy8yMzgyLzIzODI2NjMtZXphaHlnNzQ1cjVjLWltZ18yMjcwLW9yaWdpbmFsLmpwZw.jpg]Image 3[/L] - [L=https://foto-thumbnails.mtb-news.de/cache/1420_auto_1_1_0/96/aHR0cHM6Ly9mc3RhdGljMS5tdGItbmV3cy5kZS92My8yMy8yMzgyLzIzODI2NzUtdHBjc2JjMmw0cnRkLWltZ18yMzEzLW9yaWdpbmFsLmpwZw.jpg]Image 4[/L] UCI Cycling Regulations [L=https://www.uci.org/docs/default-source/rules-and-regulations/4mtb-e-1.01.2019---final---ok-publication.pdf?]HERE[/L]

Lars Forster to Miss Nove Mesto World Cup After Albstadt Crashes
@RentalBike: There have always been many crashes per race every single year (2013-2019); in 2011 the race was held in Offenburg. From my point of view is because only a handful of athletes can stay strong during the entire race (~90 min). The track is physically demanding; twice per lap they have to put a lot of effort on those climbs, so they start to crack (physically), hence the crashes on the downhills. They could even pave the entire track and the result would be the same, they would go faster and only a few would be able to stay focus the entire race. So when some say that a EWS or DH athlete could do the track blindfolded, they are not considering how hard those climbs are.

Lars Forster to Miss Nove Mesto World Cup After Albstadt Crashes
Last year there were some crashes, this year there were a few more, and reading through social media there were many more crashes which we didn't see on RedBull TV (Eva Lechner, Ondřej Cink, etc). [L=https://www.instagram.com/p/BxqN6PboUsZ/]https://www.instagram.com/p/BxqN6PboUsZ/[/L] I'm starting to fear for what will be the response of the organizer for next year (for better or for worse).

Kate was the strongest: no doubt about it. Yana Belomoina was amazing, from the fourth row to the third place. What a shame for Anne Tauber, that crash wasn't the best birthday gift. Jolanda Neff the best taking risks on the downhills.

Whoever approved those changes on the track should be fired!

Anton Cooper Criticizes Albstadt World Cup Course for Lack of Technicality
as I said on a post before; Anton Cooper made a comment without all the information at hand. Here is the response of Stephan Salscheider: "Sorry, that the current work on the track leads to such a misunderstanding of what happens on the course. We are doing our best to prepare a course, which is rideable under every weather condition, especially after the experiences and feedback in 2018. Due to weather circumstances with snow this spring, we are later with the preparation than usual. But not too late. What you can see on the pictures is not the final result."

Anton Cooper Criticizes Albstadt World Cup Course for Lack of Technicality
The weather prediction has been changing constantly for the day of the race (snow, rain, or just cloudy). So it makes sense that they are taking precautions. In case it doesn't rain; after three days of practice, plus two junior races, and two U23 races, the track will be perfect for elites. Last week there was a race in Germany, and some of the top Riders decided not to race because of the snow and rain the days before. Some weeks ago there was a race in Italy with heavy rain, and even Nino had to walk at some point because of the conditions of the track. Probably they don't want an Albstadt 2013 where the final result was partly decided by mechanicals. Anton Cooper arrived to Europe some days ago and hasn't raced during April-May in Europe, so I believe he isn't aware of all of this.
