Canadian Olympian Emily Batty placed third at UCI Mountain Bike World Cup on Saturday.

The Team Trek Factory Racing rider from Brooklin, Ont., who represented Canada in London last summer, rode the course in one hour 37 minutes 27 seconds, and finished less than one minute behind Tanja Zakelj's winning time (1:36:37). Katerina Nash was second.

"Emily's ride was very strong and well-paced," said Canadian coach Dan Proulx in a statement. "She has shown consistency at the front of the field this World Cup season. Emily's third place today was a great way to end the first block of World Cups this season."
