XCC: Short Track

CROSS-COUNTRY SHORT TRACK (official UCI abbreviation is XCC) is a short, dynamic race for about 25 minutes. The race is held on a shorter and simpler circuit (approx. 1 - 1,5km) with fewer amount of terrain obstacles, which naturally pushes the riders to ride in a group. Possible (but not mandatory) point scoring bonuses or prize money during each passage of the finish area provide a hard fight on the finish line of each circuit and also a great show for spectators. 


  • From 2018 season the Short Track (XCC) was introduced as an official part of the UCI MTB World Cup series
