Despite being a little more difficult to watch this year than when it was on Red Bull TV, it’s hard not to get excited about watching World Cup mountain biking. Whether it’s toe-to-toe racing and sprint battles on XCO courses or watching the last man or woman come down a chewed up downhill track trying to unseat whoever is in the hot seat, World Cup mountain biking is the everyday mountain biker’s connection to the highest limits of the sport.

This season started at Nove Mesto last month with the first cross-country racing of the year, and continues this weekend in Lenzerheide, Switzerland with cross-country Olympic, short track, and downhill. Will you be watching?
