JONNIER WINS IN MONT SAINTE ANNE
Here are the results, report below.
Mont-Sainte-Anne, Saturday 25th of July - In a day of changing weather conditions, Sabrina Jonnier (Team Maxxis-Rocky Mountain Bicycles) and Sam Hill (Monster Energy/Specialized/Mad Cat) claimed the Nissan UCI World Cup presented by Shimano Downhill wins at Mont Ste Anne, Quebec. Both riders mastered a difficult course made even more challenging by the variable amounts of moisture on track.
Through the first 10 racers of the 20 rider field, there was rapid and frequent turnover in the Hot Seat. The first rider to hang on to the Hot Seat for a while was Emilie Siegenthaler (Scott 11). Siegenthaler was eventually dislodged by Melissa Buhl.
The next rider to lay down a fast run was Tracy Moseley (Trek World Racing), who was almost immediately displaced by Emmeline Ragot (Suspension Center), with a strong time that was good enough to maintain the Hot Seat until only Jonnier remained to descend. Jonnier was the class of the field. Her run of 5:26.50 beat Ragot by 3.79 seconds. "That run was the best of the weekend. Conditions were a lot different than this morning. It dried out a lot. I decided to be a bit cautious and then go fast when I could. I just want to win and be happy on my bike." Jonnier's win was her fifth consecutive of the season.
Moseley finished in third place, 4.77 seconds back. With her win here, Jonnier stretches her lead in the World Cup standings to 1382 points, with Emmeline Ragot a distant second with 1115 points. Four of the top five riders are now French, with only Moseley, in third, breaking the streak.
