gouldmtbGeorgia Gould is hoping for a little luck rolling into the UCI’s MTB World Cup #3 in La Bresse, France on the 29th. Two early crashes had Georgia off and running her bike within the first 4 minutes of Sundays World Cup in Albstadt Germany. She eventually finished a disappointing 36th after multiple trips to the tech zone. Time is running out for the Olympic bronze medalist to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. She needs to finish as one of the top two Americans this coming weekend to obtain a coaches selection spot. The fitness and confidence are apparently there, when asked what she needs to do to qualify she said this, “Win would be good” “Looks like Lea pretty much sealed one spot this race. I Still have next weekend, so I still have a shot for the coaches selection spot. Bummer cuz I’m riding well!”.

You can watch her race live bright and early on Sunday May 28th on Redbull TV. They also have results, write-ups and full video recaps of the previous World Cups. http://beta.redbull.tv/live/AP-1KR6HRJW11W11/segment/AP-1KTP4KNQS2111/uci-mountain-bike-world-cup
