Canadian Emily Batty, supported by Pfaff Porsche, posted her best result this season, and Canada’s first World Cup podium of 2018, with a fourth-place finish in the Elite women’s race in the third round of the UCI MTB series in Nove Mesto na Morave, Czech Republic.


The Toronto-area native had a solid start, sitting ninth at the beginning of the race and moving up to fifth by the second lap, and then fourth, placing her on the podium.


“When it feels like you’ve hit bottom, keep working and keep believing because good things usually happen. Thankful for everyone’s support and messages,” she said in a tweet.

Congratulations, Emily!
