Mountain bike 25 abr. 2021 13:04 Migue A.

There are times in World Cup races when the rivals are so evenly matched that everything is decided in a sprint. It happens in a matter of seconds and is undoubtedly the most explosive expression of MTB. Some happen just a few metres from the finish line and others start much earlier, some are won by centimetres and others are decisively overtaken. Luckily we've been able to see quite a few in recent years and RedBull has chosen 7 of the best ones in this video.
