Tomorrow at the mountain bike world championships is a serious time. All the cross country riders will be doing battle on the Hafjell track in Norway to try and win the rainbow jersy. The two favourites Absalon and Schuter seem predestined to be the main contenders for the jersey, but we have also seen Manuel Fumic showing good form and it will certainly mix things up a bit.

Sunday is when the main event for Downhill takes place, the race is open but based on results of the last season three main riders could be in with a chance, Bryceland, Gwin and Brosnan. We shouldn’t forget the silent experience though of GReg Minnaar the current world champion who always performs under pressure. Sam Hill though seems that he might make a dash for the line in first place if he keeps it together.
