The cross-country World Cup series kicked off in Albstadt, Germany this weekend, providing a number of dramatic battles in both the Men’s and Women’s races.

The Women’s saw Eva Lechner take her first World Cup win since her 2010 victory in Houffalize. Maja Wloszczowska came in a strong second with Katrin Leumann chalking up her best result with third. Watch the replay here.

The Men’s race was full of dramas with two of the big guns, Absalon and Schurter starting strong only to suffer mechanicals. Sergio Mantecon Gutierrez took the front after Absalon dropped out, managing to hold onto it until near the end when Dan McConnell came on strong to claim his first World Cup win in a dramatic sprint finish. Jaroslav Kulhavy was giving chase but was only able to finish the day in third.
