N1NO Wins 7th World Championship in Lenzerheide, Switzerland
N1NO Schurter won his 7th World Champion Title in front of his home crowd in Lenzerheide, Switzerland this past weekend. From the beginning, N1NO raced offensively, with only the Italian Gerhard Kerschbaumer to contest. N1NO set his final attack on the 6th lap which solidified the win.
Racing on his home turf, N1NO pushed himself to the next level: "It was hard, and harder than it maybe looked like. I didn't have the best legs today. However, my fans made me forget about all the pain- it was truly epic."
Being N1NO’s home track, he remained patient and let familiarity play to his strengths. “Together with the Olympic Gold medal, which I could win in 2016 in Rio, this probably is my sweetest victory. It felt like racing in standing ovations. Finally watching all the spectators at the ceremony going crazy is something which I would have not imagined, not in my wildest dreams. The great atmosphere in Lenzerheide is not only because of me and my success, it also a statement for mountain biking in Switzerland", N1NO said.
As of today, N1NO Schurter calls three Olympic medals (a bronze, a silver and a golden one) his own, he is a 7x World Champion, and a 6 time World Cup Champion. In addition, he has 30 World Cup wins to his name- three WC wins still missing to equalize Julien Absalon's record of 33 wins.
For the UCI Worlds at Lenzerheide, SCOTT and Sram's designers worked together on a Swiss Army Knife style race design with tons of nice details, including Topeak’s Shuttle Cage Carbon which was customized for N1NO’s 2-sided frame design bike. Learn more about all Specs and details here.
