Belomoyna wins ahead of Benko

There was an upset in the under 23 women's cross country race in Nove Mesto, Czech, as the winning streak of World Cup series leader Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (Lapierre) was halted at four. The French woman could only manage third place on the day. After taking an early lead, Ferrand-Prevot was caught and dropped on the second lap by Ukrainian champion Yana Belomoyna (Infotre-Bi & Esse-Lee Cougan), and then on the fifth lap by Barbara Benko (Focus-MIG). However, she still holds a commanding 75-point lead in the overall standings with one round remaining.
