The nations battle fort the titel in the Team Relay competition
With the relay, the World Championship will be opened in Albstadt. Albstadt will experience a premiere in 2020. For the first time, three female and three male riders will take part in each relay on the Alb. A “downgrade” within the gender is always possible. Thus, there could be a second female U23 rider instead of a woman from the elite. And how does it work? Everyone from the sextet rides one lap on the cross-country course. The next rider is sent into the race by touch. However, the trick is that the national coaches can choose the order they want. There are tactical variations and it remains exciting until the end.
