MTB World Cup XC #6 Georgia Gould 4th!

We can now say that Georgia Gould is among the elite in cross country racing the who is who in the world. She has stayed focus to cut lap times down to race the elite women's field and she has a very real chance at the games.

Premont did solo to win at home with Georgia's teammate Catherine Pendrel riding to 2nd. Georgia knows what her teammate can and can't do so that gives her ideas on what she needs to do at the games.

Georgia just had her best World Cup performance yet, a 4th place at Mont Sainte Anne, Canada and passed Gunn-Rita Dahie Flesjaa, as they rounded out the podium. This is huge for her mind as the games will start in only a few weeks.

She she ready!
