Race 4 - May 27: Women's Four-cross

Kintner gets out fast for another win

By Rob Jones in Fort William

Women's world champion Jill Kintner took out the women's four-cross and afterwards echoed the men's comments in stressing the importance of the start. "I was able to get out fast, and get in front for that first corner," said Kintner. "It meant you weren't fighting with the others for position, or making mistakes. It was only in the final that I really had a battle - Tara [Llanes] and I were banging elbows, fighting for position, it was a great race."

Llanes was overtaken by Jana Horakova in the second half of the run, with Katrina Miller finishing fourth.
