Anna just seems unstoppable. After winning both the Time Trial and Road Race at the UCI Road Cycling World Championship last week and the Giro Rosa two weeks ago, she travelled to Belgium to take La Flèche Wallone Fémenine for a record sixth time -all of them consecutive- facing the other best female riders in the world.

Bartosz Zmarzlik won the won the 2020 FIM Speedway Grand Prix World Championship in the best way he could have: by winning the Final Round of the season at home, in Poland. Bartosz won four of eight World Championship races plus a third and a fourth place (this week too) en route to his second consecutive FIM Speedway World Championship.

Bronze: Henrique Avancini

The Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup had two rounds in Nové Město na Moravě, Czechia. The first one was not good for Henrique Avancini: he fell down in the short course and only managed to finish 12th, in a race won by José Gerardo Ulloa (MEX), who had beaten him at the Pan-American Games when the Brazilian had mechanical issues. Then he came back to finish 5th in the Olympic distance race. But he then redeemed himself by taking both the Short-track and Cross-Country Olympic races in the second round with spectacular sprints.
