    The big news of the weekend are missing imho. Current road and cyclo-cross world champion Pauline Ferrand-Prevot also wins the cross-country MTB worlds. If that doesn’t make you a cycling legend i don’t know what does.

    • Il_falcone

      You’re right, Paolo. This girl is absolutely amazing. Beating all the specialists on such a technically demanding course in the most important MTB race of the year is almost incredible.

    • Some highlights here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysMLZ6LWw7E&index=2

      You’re right – awesome effort. We very rarely cover MTB on CyclingTips, which is why we didn’t include anything from the MTB Worlds, but the UCI YouTube channel has some good videos and their website has some good race reports. Here is the report from the crosscountry races, for example: http://www.uci.ch/mountain-bike/news/article/cross-country-elite-titles-ferrand-prevot-and-schurter/

      “Ferrand-Prevot now holds, concurrently, an incredible four world titles across three disciplines: Team Relay and Cross-country in Mountain Bike, the Elite Road title and the Elite Cyclo-cross title.” Amazing.

        I’m really disappointed actually…………she’s already married.

        Seriously though. You can not be anymore dominant than what she has done in the last 12 months.

        with that cheesy guitar solo soundtrack, I don’t blame you for giving it a miss!

        congrats to PFP though..

      Add in third in Women’s DH, 3 in the top ten for Men’s DH and the cream of the crop,World Champion Janine Jungfels in the Observed Trials.

      “when you need to drop your little treasure off urgently – you can rely on Baby Dump!”

      • Kim

        Thanks for the clarification. I was thinking Baby Dump was a nappy brand

        • jules

          an understandable mistake

  • Bex

    That movistar thing isn’t sus at all. It happens all the time when there’s a bike swap and they want to put the one they picked up on the second car but don’t have time to stop. They’ve just left it with the swannie who was handing bottles out and he’ll make sure it gets to the other car.

    • Hamish Moffatt

      It’s the “hide the bike, hide the bike” part that’s sus!

  • Arfy

    I’ve got a spare GPS if the Alberta police want to borrow it.

  • Olev

    Give that awesome fan a backstage pass and lifetime supply of bidons! That’s what we want, not the selfie taking pee throwing spitting idiots!

    • Bring Back Klein

      absolutely. heck give him the bike ! quick acting has saved further body and bike carnage…

      • Dave

        The frame won’t be of any use unless they are the only team in the pro world to ride metal bikes, but it would be good for recovering components!

  • I thought there was a UCI rule, that prevents riders entered in a stage race, abandoning & then riding again, elsewhere, whilst original race they’re entered in (Vuelta – Bouhanni) is still ongoing?

    Bouhanni rolls in GP Fourmies 3rd……

    • Dave

      The UCI is allowed to grant an exemption.
