With a riveting final few laps this years XC world champion has been decided. Julian Absalon came home in first as world champion after chasing down Nino Schurter between the 3rd and 5th lap. Nino obviously tired by the time he crossed the line in second place after crashing just a little bit before the line in a rare mistake on a technical section. Marco Fontana delighted the crowd and showed his relief as he did a wheelie across the line and came home in third place.
