The UCI World Championships will be taking place in Saalfelden- Leogang, Austria and it promises to be a weekend of nail biting action as the men’s and women’s Elite battle it out.
The men’s race last year was won by Jaroslav Kulhavy with Nino Schurter taking second and Julian Absalon in third.
Last year the women’s race was a tight one and the title was taken by Catharine Pendrel with a time of 1:46:14, who came in ahead of Maja Wloszczowska at 1:46:42 with Eva Lechner coming in third with a time of 1:47:50.
The Cross Country Eliminator is in its first year and was introduced in 2010 in the German XC Bundesliga, the race was tested in two UCI events in Dalby Forest (UK) and Nove Mesto na Morave (CZE) in last year and officially integrated into the World Cup in 2012 with three events in Houffalize (BEL), Nove Mesto na Morave (CZE) and La Bresse (FRA).
Who will be the first to take the prize?
