Junior men's world champion Victor Koretzky (Bikepark.ch Craft) led a French sweep of the podium in round 3 of the UCI Cross Country Mountain Bike World Cup in Nove Mesto na Morave, Czech Republic, on Saturday. He was joined on the podium by compatriots Romain Seigle (Definitive Spectra.Tec ASPTT) and Antoine Bouqueret (France).

Koretzky went out in front early in the 21-kilometre race, dropping chasers at the end of the start loop. Koretzky was followed by American Keegan Swenson (Team USA), who was third in the previous World Cup a month earlier. Swenson held Koretzky to a 30-second lead through most of the race until the final lap, when a crash and bent chain in the final kilometres put him on foot. Remarkably, he still managed to finish sixth, despite having to run.

Seigle and Bouqueret both jumped a spot after Swenson's misfortune to take the remaining podium spots.
