    yes - Howie did such a great job last time, and Sam is untested at that event. I can understand how the Jaro/Howie combination seems the safe bet.

    Still an oportunity for a very strong back-up team though. Even to have 2 competitiive teams to spread the risk, and 1 back-up team for both.

    I see Yolanda won a big Marathon XC race in New Zealand yesterday, but NZ media had no idea who she was - one said she was from Thailand.

    She's come all this way and she's not doing the week long MTB stage race that started yesterday.

    It's one of the 3 Epic Series Legend Races (The Pioneer, Swiss Epic and the Absa Cape Epic).

    Langvad signed for Boels-Dolmans.

    Apparently she rode the WC road race in Innsbruck. I had no clue.

    Although not her stated intention at this point, it would be interesting to see her dabble in CX. I am really fascinated by the MVDP story: absolutely destroys CX, wins road events, can't quite crack a win for XCO.

    Langvad dabbled in CX last year. She did pretty well in one World Cup considering her spot at the back of the start grid.

    Wait, this is for road only/sheís not leaving Specialized for MTB is she?

    Both Langvad and Riisveds competed in road worlds. They were with the main contender bunch until near the end. They both had impressive races, the more so considering itís not their specialty.

    Nino Schurter beats... Roger Federer!

    After having been nominated 10 times, he got elected tonight as the Swiss Sports Personality of the Year

    Even though our mountain bikers constantly get amazing success, MTB is not considered as a major sports in Switzerland yet, compared to road cycling, tennis or alpine skiing. Good to see that it is starting to be recognized as such. The world championships in Lenzerheide definitely made a difference this year.

    That's great for XCO. He is for sure a great ambassador. The only blemish I can recall was his possibly less than sporting behaviour when Gaze beat him in Stellenbosch this year.

    I understand your point, though I saw that more as an "I'm angry and frustrated because I got unclipped at a critical moment" and not an "I'm angry that someone has won against me" kind of moment.

    It might be the context in which I'm seeing it, but I didn't perceive it in a negative way. I don't recall if he made any negative comments in a post-race interview, though.

    Langvad and Neff raced road worlds, don't think Riisveds did.

    Looks like Lea Davidson could be changing teams. Or new sponsors for Luna. Just going off her Instagram.

    PFP is out for about four months because of an iliac artery endofibrosis. She should be back in Mai for the first World Cup.
