From the first WC round in Les Gets, FRA:
The opening round of the Diesel-UCI Downhill World Cup was full of fantastic feats and big
surprises when afternoon sun changed the ground conditions changed from wet to tacky.
Steve Peat (GBR) and UCI-ranked number one Anne-Caroline Chausson (FRA) emerged victorious.
The most remarkable ride of the day must have been by Chausson to win women's event, ahead of Missy Giove (USA) and Marla Streb (USA). Chausson's finishing margin of over 17 seconds over Giove hardly told of the drama she experienced on her way down the mountain.
A big, tumbling crash separated the Dijonaisse 22 years-old downhill superstar from her bicycle by what appeared to be some 50 metres. She ran back up the hill to where it lay, ensnared by the course marking tape, and remounted with the Diesel ribbons streaming from her handlebars.
"I thought then that I was out of contention, so I just rode as hard as I could for the practice," a happy Chausson explained at the finish line.
