"I felt strong. I felt a little insecure when there were four laps, I think, left. Then I thought the others also felt strong. But then I realized that I was the fastest through the forest. Then I wanted to be in the lead when it was time for the last lap. And it worked for me, says Jenny Rissveds in Eurosport's broadcast.
Mountain bike star Jenny Rissveds cycled the nine laps at an altitude of 1,400 meters in 20 minutes and 34 seconds, and on the run, the 29-year-old was able to wave as she rode across the finish line. Second was Swiss Alessandra Keller, two seconds behind Rissveds, and third was Frenchwoman Pauline Ferrand Prevot.
Rissveds has now won the World Cup sprint in Lenzerheide in 2021, 2022 and 2023.
"Compared to the last World Cup race in Nove Mesto, this is a more technical sprint. I like the track and I prefer to drive here.
This was Jenny Rissved's 16th career World Cup victory, she has also won World Cup and Olympic gold.
