    What happened to Pauline Ferrand Prevot? did she sit out this round?

    Yes, she decided not to do this round same as Mona Mitterwallner.

    Ineos tweeted last week she wouldn’t be going to the Brazilian rounds…..Onto Chur in May, before Nove Mesto.

    I also guess, it’s a bit of a trek down to Brazil for just one rider……better to stay in Europe preparing/ training.

    she’s known for being able to peak for an event very well.

    only in the very brief covid affected 2020 season (which she won the overall) has she done all the WC races in a season.

    only one knobbly tyred prize has eluded her

    I’m guessing at 32 years old and an Olympic year, there is exactly one race she is interested in in 2024.

    Yeah, good point. I think its clear where most folks attention is right now. Puck Petersen not racing the early rounds either,  some of the experienced racers coming into obvious form – Yolanda Neff and Kate Courtney for example who were nowhere last year and are both top 10 in the first race and showed form in the XCC as well.

    Going to be an interesting year.

    I think Mitterwallner was sick at the Cape Epic and is still recovering, which sounds rough.

    You can see why Puck Pieteres wasn’t there – she’s doing really well in the classics in her first road season and I think she’s nailed on for the Netherland’s female mountain biker slot at the Olympics.
