Catharine Pendrel wins in Mount St Anne!
Lead out by a hard-charging Georgia Gould, Catharine Pendrel sallied forth to win the Mont-Sainte Anne XC World Cup #5, edging out her teammate on the final lap. Katerina Nash held on to her shoes for fourth.
With umbrellas popping up at the start line, race starters watched the dusty course ahead quickly become sloppy. Too late to switch to mud tires, many riders in the field subconsciously gave up hopes and considered slipping on a pair of running shoes.
But not the LUNA Pros, who either elect to spend their winters sliding around the cyclocross circuit, or just live in Canada.
It was Georgia Gould who took the early lead, setting a scorching pace in front of close runner Helen Premont. Although not overly saturated, the technical course still became almost un-rideable for many. But in Gould’s mind, the rain improved the course, and she opened up her large gap to ride her own race and simply “stay out of trouble”, leading the field lap after lap.
Georgia eventually developed a massive lead on her Maxxis Aspens, out almost a minute in front of the world-class competitors.
Meanwhile, Catharine stalked from behind, pacing herself well and watching for others’ mistakes. It was only in the fourth and final lap where Pendrel overtook the flagging Gould, who admitted to “crying on the inside” due to leg cramps. Although disappointed, the American is quite happy with her top form these days leading towards the Olympics.
Now leading the World Cup overall, Catharine commented, “The race came back together last lap as Georgia was cramping and I put out my fastest lap. As much as I knew it would be tough for her to lose the win last lap, it felt great to score the win in Canada and for Orbea on the new Oiz!”
Katerina Nash rode steadily in fourth place during much of the sub two-hour event, holding on to that position despite some shoe cleat technicalities. One of Katerina’s cleats had become clogged with mud and loosened up, so she could not clip in.
LUNA Pros are in great shape for the upcoming London Olympic Games! Lazer is proud to support the LUNA Pro Team with Helium helmets!
