Worlds gallery 08: Ferrand-Prévost sprints into a rainbow

From the French tricolore to the rainbow jersey, the versatile Pauline Ferrand-Prévost beat the recently crowned TT world champion, Lisa Brennauer, Sweden’s hope Emma Johansson and two-time road race gold medallist Giorgia Bronzini to take victory in a close sprint in Ponferrada. The French champion is now the world champion. A winner on the road and off it, PFP was the fastest on a day when all the major contenders showed themselves… only to be beaten in a gripping finale.
