The next block of racing is coming up: three World Cups in less than four weeks – first up is Winterberg.
Following a successful round 3 in Waregem, the 2017 UCI MTB Eliminator World Cup now takes us to Winterberg in Germany on August 26 and 27.
The upcoming round in Winterberg is totally different from what we have seen so far. A hilly circuit will expose the competitors on a course with several off-road sections. Round 5 in Apeldoorn (NED) takes place the week after Winterberg, followed by Antwerp (BEL) on September 24. The finals will be held in Antwerp.
