    It’s been all Julien Absalon in the Men’s Elite UCI Mountain Bike World Cup scene so far this season. While the two-time Olympic Champion had already secured World Cup victories in both Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and Cairns, Australia, the current World Champion, Schurter looked to regain control of the World Cup podium. The Swiss native did just that, topping the field by an eight second margin in front of 20,000 screaming fans in the Czech Republic. Absalon finished in the fifth position, twenty-nine seconds back.

    They’re called heavy favorites for a reason. Over the years, especially in those recent, Switzerland’s Nino Schurter and France’s Julie Bresset have proven why they are two of the most dominant riders in UCI Cross Country Mountain Biking. Schurter entered Saturday’s Men’s Elite race as the defending UCI MTB World Champion, 2012 London Olympic silver medalist, two time World Champion, three-time World Cup Overall Winner. To say he was expected to be one of the main contenders would be the understatement of the year. Bresset was also in South Africa as the reigning World Champion, but also the 2012 London Olympic Champion. Both riders would look to put the pace on their respective fields, and that they did.
