Jonnier grabs another World Cup win

Pugin stages second from Japan's Suemasa

Sabrina Jonnier (Maxxis-Rocky Mountain) took her sixth consecutive win in the women’s category, at Bromont, Quebec in Canada. Jonnier has now locked up the women’s overall title with one race still remaining.

“I’ve been sick all week and I had no energy,” said Jonnier. “I was really disappointed with my qualifier, it was the worst that I have had. But the weather changes dried the track out and made it more to my liking. Even so, I was really surprised at how fast my time was.”

Junior World Cup leader Anais Pajot (Team Sunn) was the first to go below three minutes and 12 seconds in the women’s race, and took the Nissan Hot Seat. Pajot held the top spot for three riders before being displaced by Anita Molcik (Yeti Fox Shox), who was in turn bumped by American Kathy Pruitt. Pruitt was immediately replaced by Canadian Micayla Gatto (Commencal).

Sabrina Jonnier (Team Maxxis-Rocky Mountain Bicycles) has simply been too good this season.

Gatto, lasted through one finisher before she also had to vacate the lead spot for Celine Gros (Morzine-Avoriaz 74). However Jonnier was up only two riders later, after an uncharacteristically slow qualifier that had her seeded fifth. The French rider obliterated the rest of the field, becoming the only rider to clock under three minutes.

Floriane Pugin (Iron Horse-Kenda-Playbiker) took second, while Japan’s Mio Suemasa was third.
