It is worth remembering that the last UCI event held in Mont-Sainte-Anne was not the World Cup, but the 2019 World Cup. A world championship in which Nino Schurter and Pauline Ferrand Prevot took the rainbow jersey from this year.
To recall the last XCO World Cup held there, we have to go back to another year 2018, when Mathias Flukiger won after Nino Schurter broke his chain and Jolanda Neff did the same after a full run.
alessandra keller In just a few races she has gone from one of the favorites to the podium to win, and as such she will start at Mont Sainte-Anne after winning in the snowshoe.
we can say that Jenny Risweed She is the most stable cyclist at the top of the race in the whole season, out of the 5 races she has participated in, she has been second and third four times, but for one reason or another she has not won. With these numbers, knowing that Riswedes is one of the most technical cyclists on the grid and the rocky descents at the Mont Sainte Anne circuit that could decide the race, it is unusual to see Riswedes at the top of the podium this weekend. Will not done.
Beck McConnell He started the season by winning 3 consecutive World Cup events, but misfortune is killing him in the last 2 races. The Australian has indicated that his fitness is at the level needed to continue winning, but two punctures at Vallnord prevented him from showing it and he suffered a hard crash on the short track in the snowshoe that cost him the chance to qualify for XCO testing. left less. If he managed to recover, then in Canada he would certainly be fighting to win.
Dutch Anne Terpstra He managed to take the lead in the general classification of the XCO World Cup in snowshoe, so there is no doubt that his main objective will be to maintain that lead in the remaining two races. Given that there are less than 200 points among the top four in the standings, McConnell, Riswedes, Keller and Terpstra himself, the Ghost Factory rider will certainly be aiming for a podium finish in Canada.
Young Austrian Mona Miterwallner She has had some ups and downs in her first Elite season, but her potential remains intact and she has already shown us that she is one of those riders capable of winning races from the first lap. We’ll see if it is in Mont-Sainte-Anne where their first win at the Elite XCO World Cup takes place.
The snowshoe race left us with significant casualties and great joy which we will see if they continue at the XCO Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup.
from Spain David Valero He won his first World Cup less than a week ago and we already know that when a cyclist, with the qualities needed to win, achieves it for the first time, it gives him a sense of confidence in the following tests. Get a decisive plus. Valero has earned on his own merits to be the hottest favorite in Canada.
The last time Vlad Dascalu competed in Mont-Sainte-Anne he was crowned under-23 world champion., so he returns to one of his favorite circuits to try to secure his first win at the elite XCO World Cup. We cannot ignore the fact that his fall in the snowshoe resulted in a severe blow to his face and a cut on his knee, once a fracture has been ruled out, it will be necessary to investigate that in Canada. But whether there is a break or not. ,
the situation will be like this Nino Schurter, The world champions have only two chances left to secure their long-awaited 34th World Cup victory and Mont-Sainte-Anne will go all out at the XCO World Cup. It remains to be seen whether he fully recovers from his horrific fall in the snowshoe.
Swiss Filippo Colombo He was second in the snowshoe until a puncture held him back for the rest of the race, but he still finished in the top 5. It will come as no surprise to see the BMC Team rider back among the top runners in Canada.
Luca Bradotto is one of the great revelations of the year, the only cyclist with a Pidcock, who has managed to repeat the win this season. In snowshoe he came in third place and it is already impossible to exclude the Italian from any list of favorites.
Although Flickiger will be absent in Canada, the World Cup brings back a big name.The surprising legacy of Jordan Saru, Saru’s visit to Mont-Sainte-Anne after his absence from Snowshoe is a bit odd, so it makes us doubt he may have prepared this race well.
