Offenburg hosts next stop of the cross country World Cup

After a two-week hiatus and after the teams made the long trek back to Europe from South Africa, the Mountain Bike World Cup resumes in Offenburg, Germany, with round two of the cross country series. Set amidst the vineyards of this Black Forest town close to both the Swiss and French borders, 2009 will be the third year for the World Cup in Offenburg.

Distances have not yet been confirmed, but it is likely that the women will do six laps (plus a start loop), and the men one more lap. The weather is perfect - sunny and mid-20s (degrees Celsius). This means that, unlike in previous years, even the deepest sections of mud have dried up, and the steep, rooty descents are no longer as slippery and treacherous.

The 5.8 kilometre course is very similar to last year. After a start loop of 1.2 kilometres, the riders head out on a fast, paved climb before entering the first section of dirt singletrack. The dry conditions mean that riders won't be slowing much even when they hit the dirt.

The first of four major drop-offs is the next obstacle the riders will meet. The "Dual Speed Drop" offers the riders a choice of two stepped descents - do you go fast and dangerous, or slightly safer, but slower? Then it is a long climb up to the highest point of the course before tackling the switchbacked North Shore descent, followed by the "Worldclass Drop" and "Wolfs Drop".

The riders are only halfway through a lap at this point, and the circuit switches from technical to high speed dirt track for a second loop before heading back to the start-finish area and one final climb.

The women's field has had a huge increase in depth. Last year's number one and two ranked World Cup riders - Canadians Marie-Helene Premont (Maxxis-Rocky Mountain) and Catharine Pendrel (Luna Pro Team) - both skipped Pietermaritzburg, but they will be on the start line in Offenburg, as will American star Georgia Gould (Luna Pro Team) and China's Ren Chengyuan. Both Gould and Pendrel are coming off strong races at Sea Otter last weekend, while for Premont it will be her first race of the year.

However, they will have a hard battle against World Cup leader Elisabeth Osl (Central Ghost Pro Team), her teammate Sabine Spitz (the Olympic champion), world champion Marga Fullana (Massi), Olympic bronze medalist Irina Kalentieva (Topeak Ergon) and Lene Byberg (Team Specialized). Spitz is racing before a home crowd, and is fit after a mysterious illness in South Africa, so she could be one to watch.

Byberg had a very close call earlier in the week, when she was hit by a car that abruptly turned right into her. Byberg is fine other than some bruising on her ribs and leg, but her bike frame was cracked when the car hit it. The driver has been charged.

The men's field will also have more depth than Pietermaritzburg, with both Ralph Näf (Multivan Merida) and Marco Fontana (Cannondale Factory Racing) back in the men's race after illness kept them away from South Africa. Näf is certainly riding well, after winning a German national series Bundesliga race last weekend. Of course, the favourites will still include World Cup leader Jose Hermida (Multivan Merida), Olympic champion Julien Absalon (Orbea) and the Team Specialized duo of world champion Christoph Sauser and U23 World Cup leader Burry Stander.

However, Hermida is sick with a cold, and predicts that his teammate Näf will be the one to watch, although Näf has to start well back on the seventh row.

American Todd Wells (Specialized) will ride the new Specialized 29er, the first time the newly-introduced bike will be used in World Cup competition. Wells was the top North American in South Africa, in 23rd place, but says he is looking for a top-10 result in Offenburg. Wells joins Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (Subaru-Gary Fisher) in riding a 29er.
