Alise Post wins Supercross World Cup in Papendal on Sunday
After making it to an eight-woman main that included strongwomen Caroline Buchanan (AUS), Laetitia Le Corguille (FRA), and fellow American Amanda Geving (Largo, Fla./MCS Bicycles), Post got into the front position by jumping the whole triple in the first straight.
“I was the only one that did it in practice and I hadn’t hit it since,” Post explained. “It was kind of a split decision moment and I needed to do that to get in front and I went for it.”
The jump took Alise out of third or fourth place and moved her to the front, a position she held onto until the finish.
“This is huge for me going into Worlds,” she said. “It’s a big confidence boost.”
