France finished the International Cycling Union (UCI) Mountain Bike World Cup in Lenzerheide on top of the medals table with three gold medals.

Frenchwoman Loana Lecomte added to her cross-country win from Leogang as she crossed the line after 1hr 17min 31sec in the women's race, just eight seconds ahead of Rio de Janeiro 2016 champion Jenny Rissveds of Sweden.

Switzerland's Alessandra Keller claimed the bronze medal safely with 1:17:55 on the clock, 1:38 in front of fourth-placed Pauline Ferrand Prevot of France in the cross-country Olympic discipline.

The 2019 World Championships bronze medallist won it after a 2min 47.153sec combined time, just 1.402 in front of Finn Iles.

It was the second time Pierron has pushed the Canadian off the top of the podium after doing the same in Lourdes.

South African Greg Minnaur narrowly bagged bronze with a 0.007 time difference between Austria's Andreas Kolb in fourth.

There was more French success in the downhill as double World Champion Myriam Nicole posted a time of 3:11.751, fending off challenges from Swiss rider Camille Balanche and Eleonora Farina of Italy who crossed the line after 3:16.170 and 3:20.184, respectively.

Top seed Austrian Valentina Höll could only muster up a fifth-place finish in what was a disappointing performance.

Switzerland pulled off a one-two finish in the men's cross-country short track with Filippo Colombo taking gold and Tokyo 2020 runner-up Mathias Flückiger winning silver.

South African Alan Hatherly made up the top three ahead of Nino Schurter to prevent a Swiss podium sweep.

Hatherly and Flückiger reached the podium again in the men's cross-country Olympic race but traded places while Luca Braidot of Italy won gold.

Rissveds overcame her initial disappointment to win cross-country short track gold ahead Keller and her compatriot Jolanda Neff.
