In the first day of cross country competition at round two of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, French, Ukrainian and Czech riders were victorious in Houffalize, Belgium, on Saturday.

In the under 23 women's race, Yana Belomoyna (BI&ESSE-Infotre Protek), second in the opening round of the World Cup to Ekaterina Anoshina (Team Protek), beat her rival in this round to take over the lead in the World Cup standings. Rebecca Henderson (Australia) took third.

Belomoyna and Anoshina both chased Jolanda Neff (Wheeler-IXS), a first year under 23 rider, who eventually faded to fourth, in the first half of the race before taking the lead.
