Congratulations to Jamie Yang Pong and James Nicol for their respective victories on Metcalf! Shout outs to Robin Betz, Keisuke Otsuka, and Yassine Kabouzi for rounding out the podiums

,

What an exciting week with some cool developments playing out. Great work to Yassine who had his best week yet and battled it out with Keisuke to the finish line separated only by seconds! From the race reports it sounds like there was a game of cat and mouse with Yassine having the upper edge on the steeps and Keisuke on the lesser grades.

In the team competition, Alto Velo returned to the podium and it appears like it will all come down to Hamilton to decide the final sorting order of the teams in the overall. WEDU appears out of reach with 5 rides to count, but the order of 2nd and 3rd is anyone's for the taking.

Next week is our final week and it ends in a traditional format on Hamilton. Some key storylines to pay attention to:

Some other notable events:
