Nissan UCI World Cup round up
The Nissan UCI Mountain Bike World Cup is over, bar the Finals in
Maribor after the World Championships in Fort William. So, going into
Fort William, here's how the current form is looking - but remember
the Worlds is the biggest, the most important and the best annual
mountain bike event in the world where competitors ride for country
rather than for trade teams and sponsors. It has unique pressures and
upsets are always possible. And the home advantage mus not be
underestimated!

In DH Rachel Atherton who broke her elbow in the first DH of the season is back on her bike and should be OK for Fort William.
In the Women's DH Sabrina Jonnier (FRA) leads Tracy Moseley (GBR) and
Emmeline Ragot (FRA) with Fionn Griffiths and Helen Gaskell lying 8th
and 9th.

Jill Kintner (USA) continues to lead, pushed hard by Anneke
Beerten (NED) and Britain's Fionn Griffiths in 3rd.

In XC Russia's Irina Kalentyeva is leading the women's
rankings. There will definitely be lots to cheer on the Witch's Trail
course in September with some strong British Junior and U-23
performances expected and a recovered Oli back on form.
