    Lenzerheide weiterhin auf dem Weltcup Kalender der Mountainbiker

    Nach langer Ungewissheit ist endlich klar: Die internationale Mountainbike Elite kehrt im Sommer 2019 und 2020 nach Lenzerheide zurück. Während die Bündner Ferienregion im UCI Weltcup Kalender 2019 sowohl Austragungsort von Cross Country und Downhill Rennen ist, gastiert ein Jahr später, im August 2020, nur der Cross Country Tross in Lenzerheide. Wie bei den diesjährigen Weltmeisterschaften wollen die Organisatoren auch in Zukunft mit attraktiven Side Events ein einzigartiges Bike Festival schaffen.

    First Cross-Country gold in 17 years for the USA, home-town hero defends title

    The fourth day of racing at the 2018 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz in Lenzerheide saw the Cross-Country Elite Men and Women battling it out for the title. Following a cloudy and cold day, the Women’s and Men’s races went ahead under the brilliant late summer sun of the Swiss Alps with nothing but rainbows in the forecast. The 24,000 Swiss fans who made the pilgrimage to the shore of picturesque Lake Heidsee in Lenzerheide, were hoping for another successful day after three days of racing that all saw Team Switzerland winning gold. In the end Kate Courtney took the first Cross-Country gold medal for the USA since 2001 and local hero Nino Schurter (SUI) made history by winning on home soil to take his 7th UCI World Championship individual title in a close fight with Italian Gerhard Kerschbaumer.

    Switzerland continues to dominate, South Africa wins first XCO gold since 2009

    Following nightly rainfall, the third day of racing at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz got under way beneath a moody sky. Low hanging clouds kept the already difficult Cross-Country track from drying up, providing the U23 Cross-Country racers with difficult and slippery conditions. As a result, the thousands of spectators lining the course were treated to spectacular racing, that once again saw a dominant performance by the Swiss team.
