Georgia Gould Gets Another 5th on the World Cup #3 in Spain.

Super results for our top USA mtb gal, Georgia Gould (Luna).

She pointed out that she had a few mistakes, but that is how you learn at the World Cup level.
This is the second time she has placed 5th and this was a very fast course, so with the speed, you can mess up a turn or two.

She has now lowered her time by about 3 minutes from the normal winning time. If she stays the course, Georgia looks like she might be going to the games.

If she can nail every turn and keep the pace, she can find the speed to be in the hunt, but she needs to be perfect on course without any mistakes.
Luna still holds the UCI Team lead.

1 Gunn-Rita Flesja (Nor) 1:48:14
2 Marie-Helene Premont (Can) same time
3 Margarita Fullana (Esp) 1:13
4 Sabine Spitz (Ger) 1:37
5 Georgia Gould (USA) Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish 2:37
