In the women's races, Moioli registered her first victory of the season, but it wasn't enough to replace Eva Samkova, who finished fourth, at the top of the standings. Moioli has been consistent throughout the year, and now leads Samkoba 4,650 to 4,260 with just one race left in the season.

"I feel very good," she said "It is a fantastic day because I got my first victory of the season after four podiums, I am very, very happy. I don't have any words."
