World Cup XCO Nove Mesto 2021

(This is the whole race, not highlights.)

145 riders! Crowded start. Race starts about 20 min into the video. Muddy, riders looking for dry areas, hard to make a pass in the mud. Downhill section starts about 24:00 and it spreads them out. They go through a pump track, haha! There's a nearly impossible climb that only the leader manages and it really sets him far ahead of the field after a few laps.

Tokyo coming soon...

Pidcock: Thanks. Now hold my beer.

Very impressive.

Got lucky and advanced the video to right before piddock's attack on lap 3. Even the commentators were wishing for a good full shot of that. One moment MvdP is there, the next piddock's up by half a minute!

Weird to see no fans on the finishing area. More noticable then no fans on road races imo.
