August 31, 2011 (Champery, Switzerland) – The first race of the 2011 UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships is already in the history books with the completion of the Junior Women’s XC. The women hit the technical 4.75km course under sunny skies, completing a start loop followed by three full laps. The hands-down race favourite was Jolanda Neff (Switzerland), who had dominated the junior women’s field all season at various World Cup Challenge events.

Indeed, the young Swiss star got the hole shot as expected, but it was another Swiss rider, Linda Indergand (Switzerland), who rode away with the race for the win and the world title, gaining a whopping 2:19 over second place finisher Lena Putz (Germany) and 2:44 over third place, Julia Innerhofer (Italy). Neff finished out of the medals in fourth place at 3:17 back.

National Champion Frederique Trudel (Canada) was the top Canadian, finishing 12th, with Andreane Lanthier-Nadeau in 16th, Haley Smith 22nd, and Lauren Rosser 27th.
