Pauline Ferrand-Prévot's Ride
Returning to the top of the podium after a difficult two-year stint battling injuries and reexamining the role of cycling in her life, and former World Champion Pauline Ferrand-Prévot has proven she's back to stay with an emphatic win at Vlaamse Druivencross in Essen, Belgium. Her solo win is especially impressive considering her start at the back of the grid on the cold, muddy course flanked by slushy snow.
Here's a look at the Canyon Inflite CF SLX she rode to victory. Outfitted with SRAM eTap HRD and Zipp 202 Tubular wheels, it's an impressive machine. See the captions below for details on the build.
