The World Championships are coming



Here's Mick Hannah's custom Judge for next week's World Championships... He will obviously race for Australia. Apart from the special edition bikes and products, the year's most important mountain bike race is always interesting. Things to note: Julien Absalon will try to be the first to win 4 straight cross-country rainbow jerseys but Norway's Gunn-Rita Dahle wont be able to do the same as she wont race due to illness, ending her streak at three. That gives our own Marie-Hélène Prémont even more chances to win, although she hasn't been at her best this year. It would be nice to see North America's fastest racer, Canadian champion Geoff Kabush do well. He wins just about everything this side of the Atlantic but has yet to pull a big one against the world's best.
