Valnord – Anne Terpstra won the World Cup for the second time in her career on Sunday. And for the second time, a mountain biker from Zirecze did it in Andorra.
Three years after she made history – she was the first Dutch woman to win a World Cup – Terpstra repeated in the mini state. It reached its climax almost immediately. At first she was with Rebecca McConnell, but the Australian World Cup leader suffered a puncture and fell again because she had to walk a long way to the equipment station. From that moment on, the last 45 minutes of the race, Zeelander rode alone. She finished 57 seconds ahead.
Right after that, she said, “I love it when it’s hot.” The temperature was above 30 degrees in Andorra. I couldn’t enjoy it on the road. I’ve done more than that. It was nice to actually be able to start the celebration on the last lap. “
Terpstra did a good job on the wing. She moved up from rank four to rank two. She passed Sweden’s Jenny Risved (sick) and France’s Luana Lecomte (absent) and moved closer to Rebecca McConnell (21st place after the unlucky race). As a result, anything is possible in the remaining three World Cup tournaments. The first two of these will soon be in the US and Canada.
Ranking at the top after 6 of the 9 World Cup races:
Rebecca McConnell (Australia) 1317
Ali Abdullah Ali Muhammad 1022
1010 – Abdulrahman Ali Abdullah Al-Harbi 1010
