​The world's winningest DH rider of all time, and more recently Enduro World Series superstar Anne-Caro Chausson withdrew from the Samoens EWS event citing "fatigue". Further examination has revealed a growth in her belly which has required her to undergo surgery. We reached out to ACC to find out directly from her how she is doing, here is what she shared with us:

"In Scotland I was completely out of it. My trainer and I put it down to a serious case of fatigue. I rested a lot, but remained tired and I was suffering from stomach ache. I underwent a series of exams before the Samoens race but I didn't have the results before the event kicked off. I tried to ride, but it was simply impossible for me to produce any kind of pedaling power, and it was also potentially dangerous because I was not really lucid, so I decided to pull out of the race.

When I came back from Samoens, I was informed by my doctor that I needed to undergo surgery to remove a cyst in my belly. I spent last week in hospital and I have just returned home. The operation went well, and now I need to rest for 4 weeks while I await the results of the analysis of the cyst. Psychologically it's not easy, but thankfully there's a mountain bike race on almost every weekend to keep me occupied in front of the laptop.

Today, my first priority is to get healthy, and it is obvious that I cannot participate in the last 2 EWS races of the year. I do hope to make it out there as a spectator however."

Anne-Caro, all of us here at Vital wish you a speedy recovery and a quick return to full health!
