Well it is raining here, but all the same the XC seems to be going well. The under 23s womens race today was won by the seemingly unstopable duo of Liu Ying taking the gold, with Chengyuan Ren coming in second nearly 4 minutes later. Unusual... normally the other way around. It was quite damp today, so I didn't go right up on the course. Tomorrow perhap. Third place was Elisabeth Osl.

The Austrian Osl is riding really well at the moment.


Image

In terms of the Chinese girls, well their lead was large. Osl came in 5mins 30 after Ying and 2 mins after Chengyuan.

The Podium


Image

Amy Hunt was the first team GB rider.

Image

It will be interesting to see how their lap times compare to Saturdays event with Spitz, Kalentieva and co.

Kurschat was also there, practicing on the course in the damp conditions by the looks of it.

Image

His cleaned bike

Image

Later I went to see the German national team mechanics. They had a long night ahead of them, Peter and Martin still managed a smile though. (Lado's Canyon in pic)

Image

Again his Canyon with Sabine Spitz's bike in the background.

Image

Now there was A LOT of material lying around.... and Sabine Spitz's bike is very light.... under 9kg for sure.

Image

Image

Nice pair of Stans on Tunes there.

Start numbers....

Image

Kalentieva's bike was also there, but she wasn't. This is Wolfy in the pic here. That frame is TINY.

Image

Finally... I think we would all like to be able to get away with riding this bike!

Image

More to come tomorrow.

Still rains in Hawaii too, but it's a little warmer there, no?

How cool would it be to see World MTB go to Hawaii - really freakin' cool!

they did have MTB World Cup races here in the past... Kualoa Ranch - where they filmed some of Jurassic Park. I did a 24hr MTB race there a few years back and it was awesome.

Okay.... more pics.

Kalentieva's Terry proto...

Image

Image

More team bikes....

Image

Nina Gohl

Image

Hermidas...

Image

Image

I am guessing from the seatbag and the rusty chain (yes dude, you're famous!) this is the training machine.

The tension on the start line.

Image

One very happy Russian....

Image

The cult figure himself....

Image

Press interviewing Kalentieva backstage.

Image

That's all I got I am afraid. Phone battery ran out!
