A certified World Championship™ course at the Derby City Cup, and man did it ever deliver on Sunday. Brutally technical sand and stair sections broken up by speedy, fluid flats with an almost rhythmic feel led to yo-yoing and a a few lovely displays of prowess.
Still, the rubber band would eventually snap, and some surprising names would find themselves on the unhappy side of that divide. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean their races are over, but maybe the riders who’ve made split will have something to say about it. Excitement down to the line, I guarantee.
