An Uphill Battle in Albstadt | Full Highlights UCI XCO 2022

► Watch the Full Replay:
The 2022 World Cup season is one that Rebecca McConnell is likely to remember for a long, long time. After taking her first-ever World Cup win in Pétropolis just last month, she’s gone on to score a perfect weekend in Albstadt. Taking the win in both the cross-country short track (XCC) and the XCO on the same weekend is something only four women have done before her.

In the men, it was Tom Pidcock who took the top spot. The British rider, who had been racing on the road just a few weeks ago, turned up to Albstadt with little mountain biking training in his legs but was immediately competitive. It must be maddening for his fellow competitors how easy it seems to be for the 22-year-old biking ace. The current Olympic cross-country champion will race Nové Město next week before returning to the road, but that’s not the end of his cross-country mountain bike journey this season. He’s targeting European and World Championships glory later in the year.
