MAY 24-26

Sunday racing programme was an amazing show

The final day in Nové Město na Moravě offered marathon and cross-country races,

and a rich accompanying programme to those that came to the Vysočina Aréna.

At 7 AM, women started in their 123-kilometre-long race and were followed by their male colleagues 75 minutes later, who set out on the same track. Vera Looser, the Namibian champion, was the first lady to cross the finish line after five hours and forty-five minutes of racing. She beat the winner of last year’s race - Lejla Njemčevič of Bosnia and Hercegovina. Having spent four hours and almost forty second racing, Fabian Rabensteiner of Italy defended his victory from last year. But it was not an easy victory; he broke away from his rivals on the XCO track only, and the second to finish – Alex Miller of Namibia – lost only 7 seconds.

Czech riders had quite a good race: Karla Löffelmann finished sixth in the women’s race, Filip Adel eighth after being in the lead for a significant part of the race. Finishing about three minutes behind the winner, Filip improved his last year’s result.
