Winning Gearing Combinations
All aboard RED eTap AXS drivetrains, our elite CX athletes favored the 10-33 cassette across the board at World Champs. The choice of chainring, though, is highly personal. Wout van Aert snagged a silver medal with a superhuman 48T, proving there's a SRAM gearing option for literally every kind of CX rider. If you're not beside him on an elite podium, you'll probably want to subtract 10-12 teeth from his preference for your next CX build. We probably wouldn't even chose Thibau Nys' 46T chainring for our amateur legs. See what each of the winning riders ran in Hoogerheide.
