Pauline Ferrand-Prévot indulged in a few little pleasures in life that are usually banned, especially the days before the race: a few crisps and a spritz. But this Saturday, it was allowed and for good reason: PFP has announced that it is now ending its season. She will therefore not take the start of the XCO this Sunday (12:20 p.m.), nor will she make the trip to Snowshoe (September 17-19) for the World Cup final.

Yet she occupies second place overall behind Loana Lecomte, but she decided to say stop for 2021: “I feel really tired physically and mentally. I have no more energy and I no longer recover from my training. I prefer to stop before causing too much damage to my body. I am happy with my decision because I know that it is the best for me. I will come back stronger next year “, explained the rider of the Absolute Absalon team. BMC on social networks.

Sixth in the Worlds in Val di Sole, she had already explained that she had run out of energy and her race during the XCC on Friday confirmed this with a twelfth place at the finish. PFP has therefore decided to rest, it is obviously still too early to know for example if we will see her on cyclo-cross this winter. One thing is certain, the reconquest of the rainbow jersey in Les Gets at the world championships will be one of the highlights of its 2021 season.
