Showing the Way Rio195
Linda Indergand (Switzerland) let the entire race around the course for two laps. In may have been unwise to go out as hard as she did, but it is always worth the try. Indergand successfully negotiated all of the twists, turns, rocks, climbs and sharp drops of the course. In fact, I don't recall seeing any of the women crash. Now that may have been a factor of the television coverage, although they tend to love to show the spectacle of the mayhem.
