Though bittersweet, this moment was perhaps the perfect ending to the career of Emmeline Ragot, carried off stage by her biggest rival of the past decade.  The level at the top end of the women's field is so high right now entirely because of these two.

 Hands down my favorite photo of the year. It was bittersweet, but I feel honored to have been present and able to document such a moment.

 "Someone" (I have no clue who) responsible for placing photographers has messed up the thing, because very few people who were at the place to watch the ceremony could see athletes. Instead they saw backs of photographers. However thanks to the power internet we can relive this moment Big Grin

 I was rather salivating at the thought of the neck of Sven Martin - the god.

 Agreed with waki, the photographers did block the view! Thankfully I'm blessed with tallness so I could still see.. either way this photo has brought back an epic memory. Thanks Dave!

 This moment is more touching than when my uncle drinks and stumbles into my bed room at night.

 Top class act from a top class athlete. POY for me, if only more people involved in the back ground of the pic to show how much MTB means to people no just us pinkbikers or MTBers.
