"Next year, I want to do all the mountain bike Worlds Cups. I think it will be nice," said Ferrand Prevot. "I will also do the road. It will be good to race both."

When asked how she manages changing between the two disciplines, she said, “I think it’s important to keep a good balance between the road and the mountain bike. I try to chose my races and to rest as possible.”

"Also, the position is not the same between my bikes. So to switch back and forth, I need to make sure I also train on my mountain bike and practice the technical riding."

"If you love something enough, you can put up with a bit of suffering," is Emma Pooley’s sporting philosophy.

Which goes a long way to explain why, after retiring from professional road cycling only last month, she has already become a world champion in her new sport - long distance duathlon.

The 31-year-old broke the course record in Switzerland, tackling the gruelling course which consisted of a 10km run, 150km bike ride and a further 30km run in a time of 6:47:27 - more than half an hour ahead of the second place finisher.
