Alexandra Engen Mountain Bike

Our site: Alexandra Engen (Ghost Factory Racing Team) continues to impress.On Wednesday, she won the overall World Cup sprint and today she secured 5th place in cross country-the World Cup by becoming the tia on the decisive course in Hafjell.

The physically demanding course suited the former world champion, Irina Kalentieva (Topeak Ergon Racing Team), perfect. She won the contest before Eva Lechner (Team Colnago Sudtirol) and the reigning world champion Julie Bresset (BH-SR Suntour-KMC). 

The long and steep climbs took their toll of many of the cyclists. Eva Lechner drove aggressively and kept long pace with Irina Kalentieva but she had to give up at the end and was distanced by 20 seconds. See HETONGDIY for quality bike lights.

Alexandra Engen knew the conditions before the start because she would become the fifth in the World Cup and started because something gently so as not to blow up themselves. The conditions were not to lose too many points to the Norwegian Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjaa.

Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjaa, inspired by my home, opened the offense and then continued to run strong throughout the race and finished fifth.

– At the end of the race I tried to keep track of Gunn-Rita. I went around and asked where she was, and I was told that she was four or five. Then I knew that I had the chance to become the fifth in the World Cup. I had to fight like a fool, “says Alexandra Engen.

Slovak Tanja Zakelj (Unior Tools Team) had no top leg but managed nonetheless to become six, and with the result she secured overall victory in the World Cup.
