It’s time for the first cross-country race of the season in Nové Město na Moravě. The track is fast, technical and never fails to deliver exciting racing.

Nové Město will be a double racing round this year. There will be a World Cup Number 1 with XCC (short track) and the main XCO races for the men and women, followed by a World Cup Number 2 with XCC and XCO races for the men and women.

For the first XCC race in World Cup Number 1, the start list will be decided by the UCI world ranking points as they were on March 3 this year. For World Cup Number 2, the XCC start list will be determined by the UCI world rankings at the end of October 1.

A similar format awaits XCO riders, with races staged on October 1 and 4.

Watch all the action live on Red Bull TV from September 29 to October 4.
