Hediger wins junior women's contest

Swiss riders sweep top three spots

Michelle Hediger (Fisher BMC) rode off the front of the junior women’s race early and was never challenged. She looked especially proficient on the technical descents that seemed to disrupt the riding of some of her challengers. Her lead grew as the race progressed and she rode in alone for the victory.

Vania Schumacher (Switzerland) finished second and was given enthusiastic support by her countrymen. Tanja Starkermann (Switzerland) finished third followed by Lisa Mitterbauer (Team Bikepark) in fourth. Cayley Brooks (Canada) rounded out the podium in fifth.
