Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup

6-8 September | Snowshoe, USA

 

 

WHAT HAPPENED ?

One week after being crowned XCO UCI World Champion, Pauline Ferrand-Prévot confirmed with a win in Snowshoe ahead of Anne Terpstra (the Netherlands) and Great Britain’s Annie Last. The French winner finishes the UCI World Cup season third in the overall standings behind the USA’s Kate Courtney and Switzerland’s Jolanda Neff, 5th and 11th respectively in Snowshoe. Meanwhile Men Elite UCI World Champion Nino Schurter had to bow down to fellow Swiss Lars Forster on Sunday but finishes the season with the overall UCI World Cup win.

Elite downhill UCI World Champions Loïc Bruni and Myriam Nicole finished fourth and second respectively in Snowshoe after hard-fought competitions that saw Elite Men victory go to Great Britain’s Danny Hart and the Elite Women’s win claimed for the third time running by Marine Cabirou, third at the Worlds. Australian Tracey Hannah needed a top-six finish to claim the overall UCI World Cup title, and scraped in at 5th place to do just that. Bruni is the overall winner in the Elite Men’s competition although fellow Frenchman Amaury Pierron got uncomfortably close and nothing was decided until end of play on Sunday. The two Frenchmen finish their UCI World Cup campaigns on 1462 points and 1422 points respectively.
