    First US men's XCO World Cup win in 28 years.

    Wowsers! Seriously?? Was it Ned Overend??😯



    EDIT: Or did you mean between Koretzky and Cink for second place?

    Oh, very possibly. I wasn't paying 100% attention, soz

    It looks like it was David Juarez. Never heard of him, and actually 27 years ago. Overend was third having won the previous round

    Better known as 'Tinker' Juarez.....along with Overend and Tomac were the early US MTB legends.....

    There is an account on You Tube which has the old mid 90s Grundig World Cups. Lenzerheide is almost unrecognisable.

    I looked at doing twenty four-12 - one of my clubmates has done it. Maybe next year though.

    It's a great event. A nice technical course to keep you awake at night
