The World Cup 2015 season will certainly be exciting with a total of 10 races. There are three new races in the World Cup this year – Boxend (GBR) and Bystřice nad Pernštejnem
(CZE) each with a MTB. Hannover (GER) for the first time since 2010, will be a World Long Distance Championship Race. All these new races have taken place in recent years with great success. The four best results for the World Cup will be counted as in recent years. Collecting points will require tactical planning with plenty of races on offer, with extra points for athletes that race in an International Championships (World/ European) plus bonus points for over 4 races.
The Overall and Age-Group winners will win the elaborate crystal globe, and the top three finishers overall and in age groups additionally get high quality medals. This should create a further incentive and competition for places.
