Anne Caroline Chausson returns to racing

Greatest ever female downhiller to ride tropical Megavalanche

Details are scant at this stage, but it looks like legendary downhiller Anne Caroline Chausson is back on a bike and preparing to take part in the Megavalanche race on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion.

This picture of the Frenchwoman with a Trek Remedy was posted on Marzocchi's website this morning, with a caption informing us that she'll be running a 55 RC3 WC Ti fork and Roco LO shock.

With a CV like hers – she was world champion 16 times, won seven UCI World Cup titles and got an Olympic gold medal in BMX – the other women competitors, and plenty of the men, had better watch out!
