Round 2 of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup was held in tropical North Queensland, Australia. Consistent and heavy rain turned the pits into an absolute mess, and most cross country teams did their pit work back at the hotels.

The day before the big race, the sun finally came out and so did the cross country whippets. Cyclingnews was there to see what’s new and exciting.

Some highlights include Julien Absalon’s BMC, Emily Batty and Bec Henderson’s Trek Factory bikes, a new Cannondale Scalpel paintscheme, Bontrager pre-production treads and shoes, and a bunch of other random bits from the shoe-destroying pits.

Take a scroll through our gallery and see the latest gear used by the world’s fastest cross country riders.
