The complete list for the official timed practise session on Thursday.

Okay, we’re trying to work out how the final race run will be decided. Last years results? The overall rankings? The overall results?
Have a read of UCI rule 9.2.038:

9.2.038

Riders’ start order is drawn up on the basis of the last published UCI individual mountain bike classification in the following formats and categories:

a) XCO Men Elite, XCO Women Elite, XCO Men under 23, XCO Women under 23;

b) DHI Men Elite, DHI Women Elite, for the official timed session and the finals (the best placed rider starting last);

c) 4X Men, 4X Women, for qualifying rounds only.

For the XCO Men Elite, XCO Women Elite, XCO Men Under 23, XCO Women Under 23 events (point a) and the 4X Men and Women events (point c), for riders not ranked in the UCI individual mountain bike classification, start order will in the first instance alternate between nations in the order of the placing of the nation in the preceding World Championships. And then for unclassified nations lots will be drawn to determine the order of each rider. Within each team, the start order will be determined and communicated by the national federations.

For the DHI Men Elite and Women Elite events (point b), the order of riders not ranked in the UCI individual mountain bike classification shall be determined by drawing lots.

For the DHI Men Juniors and Women Juniors events, the start order of teams during the official timed session and the final is determined by the placing of the nation in the preceding world championship.

Then an alternating sequence of unranked nations shall be determined by drawing lots.

Within each team, the start order will be determined and communicated by the national federations.

For all DHI events (Elite Men, Elite Women, Men Juniors and Women Juniors), riders are required to ride in the official timed session on pain of disqualification from the final. All riders who start the official timed session shall qualify for the final.

For the XCO Men Juniors and Women Juniors events, the start order of teams shall be based by the placing of the nation in the preceding world championship. Within each team, the start order will be determined and communicated by the national federation. Then an alternating sequence of unranked nations shall be determined by drawing lots.

    Is the final race order not decided on the finishing positions from last years world champs? I.e, Peaty would be last man down?

  2. Lythy

    that makes sense

  3. billy

    Nat, think you might be right sort of, last years order went on uci ranking http://dirt.mpora.com/world-cup/timed-practise-results-from-the-worlds.html

  4. Rich Park

    Oh can they all play the “rain” game then?

  5. AC

    Looks to me like it’s done off of the current UCI ranking, which makes most sense to me. With an exception for reigning champion who is last man down regardless of current ranking.

  6. billy

    AC, sounds spot on to me.

  7. Nat

    Yeah AC, that sounds about right to me!

  8. Leads_rider

    i can’t find barrel on the start list – anybody spot him?

  9. NorthWest

    Barrel and Sick Mick are out. See Hill?

  10. vincent

    @ Northwest: Hill is 10th from the end.

  11. Lythy

    AC, makes sense

  12. Leads_rider

    barrel didn’t make it back… wtf were all those pump up videos he released. Does anybody else think it’s out of place for a french person to surrender like that?

  13. DanB

    lol looks like canada has gone for the put as many riders in as possible and we might be in with a chance approach. such a shame about manons injruy she had that one in the bag really

  14. John@Dirt TV

    Fabien is not planning on racing until next year. Mick went home after his crash in Windham. Sam is racing.

  15. Brad Smith

    No French male juniors.
