    UCI xc Eliminator round 2 pure bs?

    I recently watched the round 2 and I was surprise that it was entirely different from the exciting round 1. The format is completely different. Does UCI have a racing format or guidlines for this new flat form of racing? Or they are just afraid that Lopes and Ibis would smoke all the 20 years old riders if they would go for the same course as round 1? Hey don't get me wrong guys I'm not a real Lope's fan but got to give to the guy, he really was a monster in the round 1. Hoping to see more of Ibis and Lopes on the next round...

    So, was the course for round 2 really changed after round 1 was complete? Or is this purely speculative conspiracy theory Lopes love?

    It was awesome if you like wood chips and pavement. UCI is an abomination and an embarrassment to mountain bike racing.
