The Mercedes-Benz UCI Cross-Country World Cup 2022 continued in Germany at the weekend.

 

What did I miss?

  • 8 May 2022 - UCI MTB World Cup Albstadt XCO Ladies

 

Where did the World Cup take place?

Albstadt it was!

Every year the actually quiet Albstadt comes to life and gets a big city flair for three days!

The last race weekend of the Mercedes-Benz UCI Cross-Country World Cup was once again a state of emergency. Albstadt is always worth a visit with its lush racing action, because with the Cross-Country Short Track race (XCC) and the two main competitions of the women's and men's Olympic discipline Cross-Country (XCO), the visitors and the spectators always get a real highlight.

 

What did the course look like?

The 4.2 km long course in Albstadt is technically relatively undemanding (compared to some of the later World Cup races). Due to this, however, there is a very high average speed, which made for tight and highly exciting race decisions.

After the start in the city, the course leads up to the adjacent forest before the start-finish straight leads back into the urban field. The race in Albstadt will probably be decided on the two prominent steep and long climbs.
One difficulty of the course was definitely overtaking, as the whole track is very narrow. 

It was good that our girls from the GHOST Factory Racing Team had a good starting position.

 

Which bikes are the girls riding?

Our GHOST Factory Racing Team is riding our Lector model again this year.

When is the next World Cup race?

The GHOST Factory Racing girls will already be competing again next weekend: 13-15 May, but we will keep our fingers crossed for the race in Nove Mesto (Czech Republic).
