There's a month's break now until the next World Cup and we need it. Every single series is a fascinating watch at the moments and the narratives are intertwining like lines in a bike park. time to catch your breath and look back on a weekend of red-hot action.

Vali Holl is continuing to turn heads and really is ready to race the elite women already. She crashed in her race run at a crucial point just before the motorway but could have stopped for a Stiegl and still have claimed the win in the junior women. Can we just move her up to elites a year early?

Kye A'Hern stepped up in the junior men and claimed a second successive win. If you look at the splits, Daprela probably threw it away, but you can only race what turns up and A'Hern took full advantage. We've got another year and a half of these two taking chunks out of each other and it's going to be great to watch.

Onto the women and it's so good to see Rach back in the top spot. Her, Myriam and Tahnee all seem to be super-tightly matched this year and the points are reflecting that too. Tahnee's disqualification ended up being the big talking point of the weekend though, blown off the motorway jumps into the grass and ending the weekend clutching at quali points alone, it's going to be a tough uphill battle to get back into the title race from here.

In the men's race, you can't help but feel for Luca. There were shades of Bruni in Leogang in 2015 who also qualified first and looked to be on for the win before ditching it within sight of the finish. The pace is so obviously there and again he was on a run that could have claimed top spot, it's so close to clicking now.

Pierron took another well deserved win, he's just fast, there's nothing more or less to it than that - anyone who calls it a surprise hasn't been watching hard enough. Performance of the weekend could go to Gwin though, battling through the pain to keep himself right in the title race.

Let's take a look at all the action from yesterday:
