The four cross (4X) event at the 2009 UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships held in Canberra, Australia is now history, with Jill Kintner earning a solid silver medal. The three-time World Champ in 4X looked dominant early on, recording the fastest time in Qualifiers on Thursday before winning her first heat and Semifinal round on Friday. However, Aussie Caroline Buchanan held a home-track advantage and got the snap on Kintner in the Final and was able to fend off the aggressive rider for the rest of the lap.

Kintner continues her globe-trotting adventures as she travels to elite races around the world; keep up with her at her personal site here.
