UCI Mountain Bike World Cup: 5 podiums and two team wins

Two rounds of the World Cup, or four events, took place at Nove Mesto. The team left with five podiums: Milan Vader (3rd and 2nd in XCO), Thomas Litscher (2nd in second XCC) and Victor Koretzky (2nd in first XCC and 4th in second XCO) all shared the honors. And we won both team stages.

An incredible week


“Before coming here, I knew my feelings were good. But with the lack of international competition, it was difficult to project how well I could do. Of course, I am leaving more than satisfied with my first two World Cup podiums. I see that a victory is getting closer and it’s really motivating for the future. Overall, we have had an amazing week all together with the team. Everyone has done a tremendous amount of work to ensure that we are in the best possible condition, and all those contributions can be felt on the bike. “

A very strong level of competition

Victor Koretzky

“I started my week very well with second place in the XCC. Although I had some problems afterwards at the XCO, I managed to get back into the game for the last two events of the season. Today with Milan we had a really good race, taking our responsibilities. In terms of times, I have never been so close to victory. We could see this week that the level was very high. I think that now there are ten riders who can win a World Cup. I can’t wait to be next. “

A great dynamic

Thomas Litscher

“Even though some back problems prevented me from fulfilling my full potential today, I’m pretty happy with my week, including a podium. The general atmosphere in the team is excellent and that makes you hurt yourself even more on the bike for your teammates. Now it’s time for the World Championship in Austria where I have the feeling that anything is possible.”

We’ve been circling a victory

Pierre Lebreton

“We’re finishing a good week. We experienced an unprecedented sequence that should not be missed. We’re doing very well, and we’re getting very close to an individual victory. Our collective victories are not insignificant and reflect the spirit that prevails in our team today. We are reaping the fruits of our work, and I am very satisfied. Today anything is possible and we are moving towards the World Championships with confidence and humility. “
