    She finished fifth in the U23 World's still suffering from a cold, but was pretty gracious about it, even though she was hoping for a better result.

    She was also one of the first people over at the U23 men's podium to applaud for her TWR team mate who won.

    Huge win for her.

    She and a couple of the other young female riders have the potential to significantly increase the interest in mtb racing. Young girls will look up to them big time and realize you can be beautiful and feminine and at the same time be a ferocious athlete. Young guys will... ...I'll just say they'll obviously pay attention too.

    Congratulations to Ms. Batty for stepping up and taking a big win.

    "On the other side of the course on the last lap, I jumped and rode the downhill in front," said Batty. "I crested the top and hit the pavement and we came into that final stretch side by side and sprinted."

    "We were both feeling pretty good. We were talking to each other a little bit and decided at the top that it would be a drag race to the finish, side by side," said Batty.

    Pendrel and Batty put on an all-Canadian show at the front. It was a battle between veteran racer and World Cup leader Pendrel and the younger Batty, and it came down to the final downhill turn and finishing straight. Batty had the biggest kick and won the sprint to the line ahead of Pendrel.

    "Emily was my equal in every aspect today except she was my better in the sprint," said Pendrel. "This was the first time Emily and I have ever been able to work together like this in a race - we worked well together."


    When asked about her teammate Batty's win, Irmiger said, "People shouldn't be surprised - and if they were, now they won't be any more."

    Two thumbs up to both of them for sportsmanship (sportswomanship?) in deciding they were just going to drag race instead of jockying for position in the home stretch on the other's wheel for the sprint. Total class acts by teammates in my opinion after they had worked together to put themselves in that position.



    Edit--actually, they are kind of teammates (when racing for Canada) and kind of not (such as in this race), which makes it even better.

    Things went sour between them and he broke up with her. He's a difficult man to please.

    He keeps all those pictures, though. Seems he's having a tough time walking away.

    Catharine said she had a lot of fun racing with Emily. The two of them worked together the whole race. At the end Catharine did everything she could to get ride of Emily because she knew Emily would destroy her in a sprint. But Emily was too strong and she couldn't get rid of her.
