Carolyn Jackson Triple Masters World Champion

Sunday, 31 August 2014

The highlight of the last two days of the MTBO World Championships undoubtedly was the trifecta of gold medals won in the W50 Masters by Carolyn Jackson.   Given that there were several ex elite riders from other countries in her category, this was no soft result.  Even more impressively Carolyn had performed the same feat in the 2013 Worlds, thus making it 6 titles from 6 events.  Fellow Victorian Peter Cusworth also did well, bringing home two bronze medals.

 Another Victorian Angus Robinson continued his excellent World Championship with 17th in the long Jwoc mtbo championship giving him three top 20 results in the individual events.  Karl Withers came through with his best result to date, while Tim Jackson was down further than he would have liked.

The win of super fit Russian Anton Foliforov was no surprise in the men’s elite and Russia also took first & second places in the women’s elite.

 The Australian team had a horror last day in the relays with 3 riders mispunching, resulting in both the junior and elite teams being DNF’ed.   The fine ride by Karl Withers was the only highlight.    

The very experienced Estonian men’s team had a victory in the men’s elite ahead of Finland & France.

Although Finland were hot favourites for the women’s crown, the Russian team came in first (by a mere 19 seconds), with both Finnish teams finishing next, with the 4th finisher the Czech Republic then being elevated to the bronze, as only the first team from each nation can count.

World Cup 2014 Provisional results.

On the top rung of the ladder at the end of an exciting World Cup season are Emily Benham, Great Britain and Anton Foliforov, Russia.   The World Championships individual races held this week counted towards overall World Cup scores for the season; with the first two rounds being in Denmark and Sweden earlier in the year. For Emily the second round, where she had three wins, was decisive. Anton Foliforov enjoyed a consistently good season and he finished with a big lead over fellow Russian Ruslan Gritsan.
