Rain and mud played a major role in the Snowshoe World Cup, making it the toughest race so far this season. The racing was very different from what was expected due to the weather conditions. This is what racing is all about.
The week started with a lot of rain. We could already sense that the races would be affected by the weather, as indeed they were. Although it didn't rain on Saturday, the day of the DH finals, the course was very complicated. On Sunday, the XCO races were held under a heavy rain that made it very difficult for the riders to stay on the bike.
