Coach Ben Wordsworth said after the event "this was another great result from Holly Crawford, finishing 14th in a field of more than 40 women, and up against some of the best riders in the world".

"The competition was a good experience for the whole team as we have not competed at this level before, or in front of such a huge crowd."

"Now we head back to Mammoth to put in a solid few weeks of training leading up to the World Championships."
