Videos from the 2016 Cross Country MTB World Championships
A huge weekend of racing, with so much action – and we’ve got video – highlights from the Junior and U23 women, the full race replay from the elite women, and lots more photos, backstage and more media.
SO MUCH DRAMA! in this race – it was just crazy, especially that fight for third. The full race replay is here on Red Bull TV, and we’ve also got race highlights from the UCI – and I love this video from behind the finish-line, showing what happens after a win!

Video interview with third-placed Emily Batty – and another with Catharine Pendrel, who’s so honest about her mistakes. Lots more interviews with Canadian Worlds riders on the Canadian Cyclist YouTube.
Pauline Ferrand-Prévot was caught up in a nasty crash on the startline, and then crashed at least once more in the rock garden – but she was out cheering for the French men the next day with a taped-up face – check out this Pinkbike photo of her, and this:
