Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
I thought they were fairly good friends, so I'm wondering if a little bit has been lost in translation because Neff seems to say PFP has a habit of doing this and the text seems to imply she think's she's dangerous. Maybe she just means she's an aggressive racer.
I don't know what the relationship is actually like between the two of them. But I have seen them cut each other off before, so they have at least some history of racing aggressively against each other in the past yearWell, they don't follow each other on social media (and although Jolanda until fairly recently almost didn't follow no one, she now follows some of her fellow riders on the circuit).
No words from PFP to Jolanda on her post, so I guess their relationships must have gone sour some time in the past.
Like you, I thought they were good pals, as I remembered they were very friendly and sporty with each other after their crash in Hoogerheide'2018.
The races are live on the UEC website, and Eurosport Player - but no commentary. The men's U23 was quite tactical, and the women's U23 was as expected, with Mitterwallner winning by nearly a minute, with the Alpecin-Fenix pair of Pieterse & Eibl 2nd & 3rd.
Watched senior womens race on Eurosport, you certainly did not miss anything with no commentary.
Matt Stephen's with supposed expert Neil Donahue who added nothing but vague waffle.
Question about wheels: it appears that all carbon 5-6 spoke wheels are common in women’s elite MTB racing, but not the men’s. Correct me if I wrong. I’m assuming the reason is that the 5-6 spoke wheels are lighter, but not suitable to the greater forces in men’s racing. Sound right?
I watched a bit of last weekends race, and one or two Ghost riders must have been near the top, so I noticed the wheels.I only know of one team using them (Ghost Factory Team) and it's because they are sponsored by Bike Ahead Composites. Since they are a female only team, that's the reason no one is using them in the men's field. Bike Ahead Composites is a small firm so they don't have the same budget to sponsor multiple teams as DT Swiss, for instance.
