Who's the hot pick for the Marathon Worlds?

In the men there's a hot field including Sauser, Paulissen, Bretjens and Simoni, we may actually find out who is the world's greatest MTB'er. Or will we have a championship decided by a straight judge's call on a dodgy sprint, or may be by a decision by a dodgy judge on a straight sprint?

Will Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjaa be tougher than ever now she's a mum? Or will she be beaten by a whipper-snapper who still thinks a marathon is something that's less than 9 months long?

Does anyone know what the track is actually like? The map is pretty useless...
