Spotty showers rolled through for the late afternoon start of the World Cup cross-country short track mountain bike races on Friday, September 17, 2021.

Thirty-five women lined up for the final cross-country short track race of the season, vying for not just the XCC podium, but also the chance to earn a top starting position for Sunday’s XCO race.

Rebecca McConnell had a strong start but ultimately finished off the podium in seventh place, 15 seconds off the winner. Here she leads Jenny Rissveds and Jolanda Neff, who finished second and third overall, respectively.
American Kate Courtney had a crash early in the race and was never able to recover.
American Hannah Finchamp digs deep to stay on Janika Loiv’s wheel.
2021 XCC World Champ Sina Frei gets ready for yet another steep, but short, climb. Heart rates were pegged for the full 22-minute race.
