While other cyclists have competed in both mountain biking and BMX, Anne-Caroline Chausson is the only one with outstanding results in both disciplines. She dominated the women’s MTB downhill event for about a decade, winning nine world titles between 1996 and 2005 (missing only 2004), adding a total of four titles in the dual slalom (2000-01) and four-cross (2002-03). When BMX was added to the Olympic program for 2008, Chausson returned to the discipline in which she had won three junior world titles (1987, 1992-93). She successfully completed her mission, becoming the first Olympic BMX champion, and winning a silver medal at the 2008 BMX World Championships. Chausson has also won UCI Mountain Bike World Cups in the downhill (1998-2002), dual slalom (2000) and four-cross (2002).
