All eyes on Kate.

Annika Langvad was an absolute powerhouse throughout 2016-2017.
Prevot has been making solid gains throughout the season, which culminated in another World Championship title.

Another random fact. My buddy that's 6' 1 won her jersey off of an Instagram account post and dressed up as her for Halloween. My bro looked good in a belly shirt.

Hey PB would love if you could make some sort of photo article from early World Champs, I mean 1996, 2000, 2010. Guess it would be difficult though not imposible.

Jolanda Neff wearing a necklace on one of those pictures.... Makes me think about these sweets necklaces we ate when we were kids. Is it a simple innocent fancy or a disguised manner to get boosting substances while riding? Could be...

Excellent photos, I don’t think they’re all from World Championships though, quite a few are World Cups.

The article is titled XC World Champions, not World Championships... The rainbow jersey is never worn at the world championships, so any shots where they are racing in the rainbow jersey are from a World Cup event.
