August 31/11 11:02 am - MTB World Championships: Team Relay UPDATES

Posted by Editoress on 08/31/11

Team relay is underway.  Scroll down to view teams and riders with their order of racing.  Team Canada is Max Plaxton/Evan Mcneely/Catharine Pendrel/Alexandre Vialle and they will ride in that order


The reason so many top riders doing Team Relay?  UCI nation ranking points on the line for Olympic qualification...  Plus, a chance to do a 'hot lap' on the circuit.  Tracy Moseley is doing the Relay for GBr.

Entries overall:  Switzerland most athletes at 58, followed by US at 51 then Canada and Germany at 48.  However, these numbers are already out of whack - Canada actually has 45 here, with riders such as Smith and Gatto missing.

The entrance to the venue is a narrow road (single lane in spots) up the valley from Champery.  The valley where the event takes place is also quite small,
