Beyond the Bike: Anne-Caroline Chausson

video from Bike Magazine

Ask anyone entrenched in the gravity side of mountain biking who holds the title for the Greatest of All Time, and you may hear a couple of familiar names: Peaty, Vouilloz, or Minnaar, but one will likely come up over and over again. Anne-Caroline Chausson holds the G.O.A.T. torch with 19 World Championship titles and the first ever women’s Olympic gold in BMX. While there are many great riders, and other world champions, there are very few legends, and only one Anne-Caroline.
