Back-to-Back World Cup Wins for Carter Woods

Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic (May 15, 2021) – After a gold medal finish last weekend at the opening round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, Norco Factory Team’s Carter Woods once again proved to be the strongest rider in the men’s U23 field, winning another gold in Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic.

“Last weekend, I played a pretty conservative game because I didn’t really know any of the other riders,” said Woods. “I just wanted to gauge where everyone was at. But coming into this race, the goal was to go on the second or third lap. The course was super muddy, which played to my advantage, too.”

Taking the lead after the first lap of the wet and technical course, he was able to hold off American rider Riley Amos to clinch the win for a second straight weekend, crossing the finish line with a two-minute lead over his closest opponent.

Racing continues tomorrow for the Elite men and women’s fields. Click here to watch the races live and here for full results.
