Have you ever wondered if you would be as fast as the mechanics working at the UCI Cross Country World Cup? When an athlete arrives at the tech zone with a flat tire, it’s the mechanic the one who has to be as fast as possible changing the wheel and letting the rider be back in the race.

Our challenge: show how fast you are. The rules are easy:

  1. the chain must not be on the smallest cog.
  2. The bike must be on the ground (not on a stand).

Film yourself during the wheel change, then post the video wherever you want, tag it with #mtbwheelchange and link it in the comments here below until January 31st, 2018. The three fastest times will be featured on our website and on our social channels.
