Around our corner of California (the San Francisco Bay Area), there's a lot of sports talk about a sweep that just happened. While most people are talking about the San Francisco Giants sweeping the Detroit Tigers in the World Series*, the dynasty that is on our mind is that of Anne Caroline Chausson.

Anne is finishing up her second year riding for Ibis. So far this year, she won every single race she entered, giving her a clean sweep. She had no DNF's and no placings other than the top of the podium. It's not like Anne chose an easy schedule. She focused on the biggest and hardest races of the year, including the grueling 7 day Trans Provence (7 hours on the bike per day) and the intense Mountain of Hell at Crankworx Europe (with 700+ starters and 8500' feet of descending).

A partial list of Anne's races this year includes:
Sprint Avalanche Lyon (1st Place)
Rally of High Vosges (1st Place)
Maxivalanche Andorra (1st Place)
Crankworx Europe/mountain of Hell (1st Place)
Megavalanche Alpe d'Huez (1st Place)
Trans'Provence (1st Place)
Superenduro Finale Ligure (1st Place)

We are proud of Anne's accomplishments and happy to announce that we've just signed Anne to ride Ibis for another two years, through 2013 and 2014. Anne's looking forward to a lot more racing next year, since her Olympic coaching duties are over now.

Here's to two more great years with the winningest World Cup cyclist on the planet (55 World Cup Victories).

*Euros, soccer (football) fans, ball sports haters, yes, that was a baseball reference.

 If ibis has a real dh bike, I think ACC will give Rachel Atherton a hard time in the world of UCI DH. IMO.

 Agreed, she's still the most aggressive female rider we've ever seen. I was always struck by how much speed she would carry into rough sections. I'd love to see what she could do against today's modern riders on a competitive bike.

 Come on Ibis! Make a DH frame please! Even a rough proto should do the job! I wanna see Anne-Caro on WC again!

 acc back on wc woulld be awsome! but its only a dream. i see her really often on races. she is one of my absolutely heroes on the bike. cheers

 I think ACC on a Mojo HD would still give Rachel Atherton a run for her money on any WC course. Yes, that's a bold statement, but ACC rides on a whole different level than the other WC women.

 Everybody talks about Nico or Steve or Fabien or Gregg or Brian but..................

 the fact that she wins everything is right for sure but the most impressive with ACC is her overall results, she often finishes in the top 50 the MoH, during the Cranworks, she finished 41eme overall....

 I have a sneaky feeling that Ibis is working on a DH bike. I could see them unveiling it next year's Interbike. Between ACC and Brian Lopes, they have more than enough technical knowledge and rider input to make a DH shred machine.

 I remember at the Beijing olympic bmx womens final, Shanaze Reade seemed really dismissive of A.C.C. - I thought at the time "do you have any idea who that woman is?" Needless to say Anne Caro's technique left Shanaze eating shit. Best female rider ever.

 While it pains me that my precious Tigers were swept (clicks the safety back on), its okay because I love my Mojo HD more.

'Til next time Chuck.
