Pauline Ferrand Prevot has announced on social media that she will not be racing in Lenzerheide tomorrow or at any more big races this season.
In her post on social media, Pauline states she decided to pull out of racing as her body is not fully recovering from training. Pauline does not want to cause any damage to her body by continuing her race season this year. The news follows a 12th place in the XCC Short Track race on Friday. Pauline says she feels "deeply tired, mentally and physically" from racing.
|Starting my off-season today in Lenzerheide, with chips and spritz while the others are doing the last recon before the race. I feel deeply tired, mentally and physically. I don’t have energy and my body is clearly not recovering from training. I decided to stop my season before I make too much damage to my body. I’m happy with my decision because I know it’s the best one. I will come back stronger next year.|
Thanks a lot for your support and good luck to all the athletes who are racing! 1st place or 49 or whatever, you are all true heroes— Pauline Ferrand Prevot
It's sad to hear that we won't be seeing Pauline lining up tomorrow or at any more big races this year, but we can't wait to see her back at full speed for the 2022 race season.
@iamamodel no worries mate.
She put herself on the floor, not me nor Jolanda.
I'm not proud of myself because I didn't do it but if somebody self-sabotaged in a race, brake checked me then blamed me for it I'm going to enjoy every opportunity I get to ridicule that Rider;-)
Anyway it's pretty obvious you've never raced a bike. PC assertions when it comes to racing are so stupid.
Did you see the glacial pace she took to retrieve her bike?
She knew her actions were stupid and was concocting a story in her head that made sense to her
Anyway the Olympics and worlds bring out the most clueless people
Get off my lawn!
@rifu @iamamodel , this is a part of the beauty of racing isn't it? seeing the psychology behind the riders, if you watch just the video without the context of being behind the handlebars and inside PFPs mind one would think there were no tricky games, just an accident, but Pauline's post race comments pretty much said it all...
"Neff went left, I went right. We were going at the same speed and we arrived at the same time, I said to myself, ‘If she doesn't brake or if I don't brake, we'll hit each other,’ so I braked"
...that's pure fear, one was afraid the other one was determined, one was bullied the other one bullying, in the context of racing of course.
I still consider Pauline an amazing rider and she'll come back strong I am sure, and thats what makes racing beautiful.
Just explaining the ropes to the youngster with a limited worldview
You're not very smart are you?
There is always drama in racing. In downhill, usually it is against pressure to perform or mental blocks eg: Vali winning qualies but keep crashing in last turns. In cross country it could be in tactical moves against other competitors eg: Nino blocking Avancini from taking his bottle in tech zone at Lenzerheide. It was clear from Avancini reaction that he didn't like it.
If you want to belittle racing drama as highschool drama, well, thats on you man... but i am pretty sure next time you see Neff and PFP battling another podium next summer, the Olympic drama will come to your mind and make you more invested.
Sorry, I cannot relate to your Super Marie references :-) Been a decade since I played games, except for Zwift.
Pauline is still a stone-cold killer who is simultaneously one of the best climbers and best sprinters in the field. She's aggressive and tactical at the same time, and while she doesn't have the technical flair of some others, she rode away from the field in the 2019 Worlds mud-fest which was one of the most difficult courses I've ever seen. She's overcome some tough chronic health issues to stay at the top of the sport for the better part of a decade. She's a brilliant talent and the sport is better for her presence. I hope she enjoys her well-earned offseason.
The comments section on cyclingtips on the GVA article, are worth a read.

Its amazing how many reputable scientists are saying there is evidence that it works but they are all disregarded because the mainstream media only publicises the studies and experts who say it doesnt work. Just like how everyone suddenly accepts that the lab leak theory is very likely when people wete being called lunatics before for suggesting it. Non stop propaganda 24-7.
Robert Malone, the man who invented mRNA vaccine technology seems to think ivermectin (amongst many other preeminent scientists) is a valuable tool in fighting the disease. But somehow his opinions are no longer valid.
We are living in a time when people are cheerleading for valid scientific discussion to be shut down. Its very worrying.
A real bastion of integrity LOFL
Im not really sure what smoking gun you think that wikipedia page contains. Have you even read it and are you aware anyone can edit a wiki page? Did you expect it to not contain criticism of his views on Covid 19 vaccines or something?
For anyone that has not read it, it basically points out that his career has been 100% stellar and that he is and always has been 100% credible. The only criticism of him in that article is post Covid19. He has criticised a lot of the way the vaccines have been used (he does not say they are poison or innefective for the vulnerable) and seems to believe that ivermectin has a use in this.
You do realise he is the man who led almost all of the research that has led to the mRNA vaccines that you are claiming we shouldnt question in anyway. We wouldnt have an mRNA vaccine if it wasnt for his research...yet you seem yo yhink he isnt credible because he isnt going along with the narrative.
Do you realise how insane and anti science what you are saying is?
Here are some articles not written by his wife:
I like the first one because it's furthest away from professional politics
Just that tiny thing of already having a French GF. hahaha.
There is even scientific evidence pointing towards the importance of employees beiing able to admit failure or the need for help without being judged (google: psychological safety in the workplace) to be a big contributor to good teams/orgs.
