Why wasn't Candice racing either race? Anyone know. 

Speculative; 
But I don't think she was in Europe for this round? Given the expense in travel and associated costs etc, not being on a factory team support setup, closeness to games and the potential for injury. It's very likely the option chosen is to stay at home and focus on prep ahead of the games. Any racing at this point wouldn't really add that much on balance.

because she has her Olympic spot and is preparing at home (AFAIK)

She isn't sponsored to race every UCI World Cup XCO

Travelling in these times also carry a Covid-19 risk. Bubble-wrapping and risk management too.

although, with numbers rising in SA again it would be safer to prep in lets say.......France. I know this little spot down in the SE called Les Gets. Anyone heard of it? Small town, not much happens there

If budget is no consideration for one thing, sure.

This is correct information and SA champs was also meant to happen, she can also get back to familiar surroundings, settle into routine and put quality training in instead of having to limit training load and be ready for races.

She looks ready to ROLL on the gram. Looking forward to the Olympics-if Loana's luck is anything like her national soccer team 😁
