"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."

"Rach Atherton was up by a second at the 1st split and I was sat watching the screen, waiting to see what was going to happen. Split two and she hadn’t made any more time on me, still only a second up. I know I always have good bottom section and Rach didn’t look super smooth on the screen and it was getting pretty tense! Coming over the bridge she had ten seconds left, and I knew it was about ten from the bridge…. I was thinking I was going to just miss out by a fraction but the time kept ticking… Coming through the line the green light switched to red and I couldn’t believe it! I hadn’t even thought how I’d feel if I won, or what I’d do, I didn’t want to dare. I’d just done the Double!"
