Loana Lecomte (Massi) took her fourth consecutive World Cup win on Sunday in the women's XCO before a home crowd in Les Gets, France, becoming only the second woman to win the opening four rounds of the World Cup, after the legendary Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjaa. The young French rider goes into the Tokyo Olympic race in less than three weeks as the overwhelming favourite. 

Defending Olympic champion Jenny Rissveds (Sweden) came back from a hard crash to take second, while Great Britain's Evie Richards (Trek Factory) had her best-ever World Cup result in third.
