Posted by Editor on 9/18/98.

It is starting to look like a French sweep for the Junior Women's cross-country. As the riders begin their last lap, three French riders are off the front together (Cecile Rode, Sandrine Guironnet and Severine Hanson), with defending champion Ceclia Potts of the United States 1:47 back. Lea Fl¸ckiger of Switzerland continues to hold down 5th (at 3:06). The rest of the top-10:

6. Carrie tuck (CAN) at 3:42
7. Anna Szafraniec (POL) at 4:03
8. Verena Berger (GER) at 4:05
9. Lucrezia Lamastra (ITA) at 4:12
10. Katja Rupf (SUI) at 4:15

Our next report will be after the finish, in about 30 minutes.
