Nino Schurter makes it a World Cup hat trick in Andorra
Nino Schurter is on fire this year in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Cross-Country series. And his most defiant World Cup win this year came this past weekend at the Vallnord Bike Park — the same venue where Schurter, the reigning XC world champion, claimed his 2015 world championship title.
The SCOTT–SRAM rider took control of the race in the very early minutes, and stomped out a pace that absolutely no one else could match. He rode alone for the entire race, well in front of the rest of the field, and claimed his third consecutive World Cup win of this season. Schurter’s Scott was equipped with a SRAM XX1 Eagle™ drivetrain, Level Ultimate brakes and a RockShox SID World Cup fork.
