No Stopping Nino
Two water crossings and almost a thousand miles away from the EWS action, 15,000-plus fans lined the course of 2017 World Cup XCO round number 2 in Albstadt, Germany. The Scott – SRAM rider Nino Schurter won once again, making it two for two on the season—and the 22nd World Cup win of his incredible career.
Though the Swiss rider’s solo finish, style and smile make it all seem easy, it was a hard-fought victory. The Albstadt course design saw most riders switching to hardtails, and Nino was no exception. His Scott was equipped with a XX1 Eagle™, SRAM Level Ultimate brakes and RockShox SID World Cup fork.
