After a mud-soaked opening round in Albstadt, World Cup cross country racing returns to the raucous crows of the Czech Republic for a second straight weekend of racing.
Nové Město na Moravě, known for its huge, very vocal crowds, is a favourite every ear. Fans and riders alike rave about the venue. If you can’t be in the Czech Republic, you can at least follow all the racing live from your couch on Red Bull TV.
Racing starts Friday evening, Friday morning for those watching from Canada, with the men’s and women’s Short Track XCC. Last weekend saw Kate Courtney shine, while Mathieu van der Poel came from nowhere to deny Nino Schurter his first ever XCC win.
XCO finals go Sunday, May 26. It’ll be an early morning for fans in North America, though replays are available later. Emily Batty started her run of podiums in Czech last year, taking fourth on the extended podium. Norco Factory Racing’s Peter Disera and Haley Smith will be carrying momentum from their best ever European World Cup finishes last week.
Tune in for all the racing on Red Bull TV.
