Gould wins bronze medal in Olympic mountain bike race

This is a pretty good summation —

She reached that front group at the end of the first of six laps. Then very quickly that lead group became the medal group. Riders were spit off the back like pebbles from rear tires. By Lap 3, Gould had joined France’s Julie Bresset and Germany’s Sabine Spitz and had put 21 seconds on the chase group. It wasn’t long before Bresset showed the world the future of women’s mountain biking. Only 23, she started pulling away and when Spitz went over her handlebars in front of Gould on the rock ledge, it held up both of them. Bresset cruised home for gold with a time of 1 hour, 30:52.
