 Who are the top two? Why aren’t they racing world cups? PFP getting beat, even on her worse day is a big deal.

 Loana Lecomte is only 21 so still in the U23 category, she did some podiums in U23 WC last year. She wants to race with the Elite in wolrd cup this year to earn her place for the Olympics. Lena Gerault is 25 so Elite for 2 or 3 years now, she was very strong in the U23 but she had some difficulties to cope with the race pace in the Elite category + she was finishing her studies.

 Two big long climbs and the descents weren't very technical, the second one was a bit tricky with the dust but that's all. If you couldn't follow the leaders you had to find your own pace, that's why the gaps are so big.
