Jolanda Neff and Evie Richards repeat with podiums
Let Gets, France has delivered once again, providing incredible views and awe inspiring performances from the XC World Cup competitors. For the Trek Factory Racing program, it was a mixed bag. Evie Richards and Jolanda Neff both scored a pair of second place finished in the U-23 category and elite category, respectively. A tougher day for Anton Cooper and Emily Batty, who both struggled on the French course.
I am over the moon with how the past two World Cup races have gone," said Evie Richards. "When I discussed with the physio that my first race back would be Les Gets, I didn’t ever expect that I would be on the podium! It is so nice being back on the racing scene, I have loved being around the team, as I missed seeing all these people during my rehab! I feel like I have come back from my injury as a stronger, happier and smarter racer and it makes me excited for the rest of the season. Les Gets was a beautiful place to host a World Cup, the steep long climbs and bumpy grass made for tough but exciting races, and I am happy that we will be heading here next year for another World Cup as the crowds were amazing!
