THE LAST TIME THE USA TOOK THE TOP THREE PLACES IN AN ELITE MEN’S WORLD CUP RACE

Check out this World Cup race video from 1992

We were talking with Ned Overend (the 1990 UCI Mountain Bike World Champion) today about the World Cup race in Mairiporã, Brazil this past weekend. We mentioned that it was the best World Cup race for U.S. men that we could remember since the 1990s.

Ned told us that the best American result he could remember for a World Cup XC race in the 1990s was the opening round of the 1992 World Cup series in Houffalize, Belgium, when the American men took the top three spots on the podium. Tomac was wearing the rainbow stripes, since he had won the UCI World Championship in 1991 as well as the overall World Cup title that year.
