Pauline Ferrand-Prévot powers to first in Chur to take the first round of the ÖKK Bike Revolution with a dominant ride.

A gradual start quickly gave way to a higher tempo, with many of the world’s best riders putting the pressure on, with Pauline following a number of testing attacks.

While these moves kept coming back, the Frenchwoman never looked troubled and continued marking everything and anyone who tried to go clear. This was until lap four, where ‘PFP’ put the power down on the main climb of the lap, where the group quickly went down to two, and then shortly one, as the 12-time world champion went solo.

Pauline quickly amassed a gap of 27 seconds by the end of the lap, and never looked back, taking the win by over a minute on the line.
