► Relive the UCI MTB World Cup action on Red Bull TV –

An incredible season finale in Snowshoe for the UCI MTB World Cup this year as World Cup overall titles were on the line in both the men and the women’s elite categories.

After a head-to-head year with Kate Courtney, Jolanda Neff was sitting in the lead with a hair’s breadth, which was further narrowed by the results of Friday’s cross-country short track race. From the start, Neff pushed on hard but within a few laps, the Swiss National Champion began to fall back slipping into the mass of racers. Staying strong at the front were Kate Courtney, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot, Jenny Rissveds and British athlete, Annie Last. Rotating leaders, the action came to a dramatic climax in the final laps as Rissveds suffered from a puncture which put her out of contention. Leaving Ferrand-Prevot to take the win and Kate Courtney to scoop up the overall World Cup 2019 title.

Elite Women’s Results
1st. Pauline Ferrand Prevot: 1:17.51
2nd. Anne Terpstra: +4
3rd. Annie Last: +27

Over in the men’s field, Nino Schurter was sitting strong after his XCC win on Friday, which secured him enough points to claim the World Cup overall title early. With Mathieu van der Poel out of the MTB race action, the field was open for Henrique Avancini, Lars Forster and Maxime Marotte to battle it out for the stage win. From the get-go, attacks were made each lap to pip one another to the lead, but it was Schurter’s teammate, Lars Forster who held firm and took the win in Showshoe with an elated Schurter in second place

Elite Men’s Results
1st. Lars Forster: 1:26.09
2nd. Nino Schurter: +5
3rd. Maxime Marotte: +7
