2014 UCI MTB&Trials WCHs - Elite Women Action Clip
UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships: Germany, Janickova, Oswald and Ros don the rainbow jersey. In the final of the Elite Women, the Slovakian reigning champion already stood out in the first lap, during which she completed the sections perfectly, while her rivals had problems in negotiating the Lillehammer obstacles. At the last-but-one section, Tatiana Janickova was able to celebrate her second consecutive title. With only four points gained, she now has an 11-point advantage over the runner-up, the young German rider Nina Reichenbach. It was the multiple World Champion Gemma Abant who completed the women’s podium. The Australian Janine Jungfels, one of the favourites, already lost hope on the first lap, and finished five points adrift of the podium. At the end of the Women’s race, the Nations title was awarded to Germany. It’s the first victory for Germany since 2005. With 850 points, the German team got in front of France (830) and Spain (820), who had dominated the rankings since 2006! Great-Britain (574) finished in fourth place, in front of Switzerland and Japan.
