What a season it has been. Emotions ran high throughout the year, with both up and downs. Anne Terpstra took her first World Cup win in Andorra, becoming the first Dutch female athlete to ever do so. In Lenzerheide and Snowshoe, Anne came close to winning her second World Cup, but after an epic battle with Jenny Rissveds and in the US with Pauline Ferrand-Prevot she finished in 2nd. Lisa Pasteiner rode to her best ever result in Lenzerheide with a 4th place. Sina Frei took the under 23 world title in Mont-Sainte-Anne and was three times on the Elite World cup podium. Barbara Benko defended her Hungarian title with success. Marika Tovo meanwhile is getting back on the bike and improving every single day. GHOST Factory Racing had a hugely successful year, with a clean sweep of seven wins as being the best women’s team in the World Cup.
