Pauline enjoyed being back to MTB racing! The first MTB race of the 2020 season for XCO world champion Pauline Ferrand-Prévot was held today in Switzerland. Ferrand-Prévot finished fifth in the Proffix Swiss Cup in Leukerbad.
“It was super cool to race again! It went as I expected and was raced hard. I gave everything I had on Sunday but I could feel that I miss race speed. I would say everyone felt like that, but maybe I suffered even a little more.”
“It was a good start to the season because I know that if I continue to work good in training I will be soon at the front of the race,” said the world champion.
Pauline will race a local MTB race in Spain next weekend, before the French Cup in Alpe d’Huez on August 8 and 9.
