Specialized Racing kicks off the 2013 UCI World Cup mountain bike season with a cross country race at Albstadt. The first race of the year is both a challenge and opportunity to get back to race pace and sort out equipment choices. Conditions at this venue were changing by the minute, making it that much tougher on everyone. Our riders made a strong showing, with Olympic champion, Jaroslav Kulhavy, getting consistently stronger for a podium placing.
