Oh, Canada

The mountain bike World Cup tour made its only stop in Canada the day after Canada Day. It was Canadian Catharine Pendrel of the AVIA-backed Luna Pro Team who would ride away with her first UCI Cross Country Mountain Bike World Cup victory of 2011. After a terrible start, Kika rode through the field and straight to front. She eventually found herself all alone on the famous Mont St Anne course and would cross the line almost a minute ahead of the runner-up.
