Anne Terpstra, starting from the first start row, blazes to the front. The race unfolded into one of the very best races in mountain biking’s history with the likes of Pauline Ferrand-Prevot, Jolanda Neff, Anne Tauber, Catharine Pendrel and our very own Sina Frei pushing hard. It was Terpstra who took the lead again, riding away from the field after the second lap. Jolanda Neff closed the gap in the fifth lap, attacked in the descent, only to get countered directly after. Anne Terpstra fired on all cylinders as she left Neff wondering what had just happened. Moments later, Anne would take a historic win as she became The Netherlands’ first female athlete to win a Mountain Bike World Cup.
