Where do our riders go from here? Well, only up!
Back up to the Northern Hemisphere for World Cup XC #2 in Albstadt, Germany, May 6-8. If Nino wins one more World Cup race, a new record for World Cup wins will set the bar even higher - an accolade that only comes with immense experience, commitment, and consistency.
With reigning World Champion - Evie Richards, Olympic gold medalist - Jolanda Neff (Trek Factory Racing), and Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (BMC Racing) returning hungry to race after sitting the first XCO out, the Elite Women's race is due to be shaken up even more.
When we say the talent, the speed, the technicality of courses, fanfare, and competition is only going up, racing in Brazil took it all to a whole new level. We're in for a very exciting 2022 World Cup season!
