Surprise Lara Forster wins ahead of the German Luca Schwarzbauer and the rediscovered Ondrej Cink. Good performance by Luca Braidot, growing.

Lars Forster (Thömus Maxon) was fantastic on an incredibly tough Leogang course, where he won with shrewd racing tactics and a decisive attack on the last lap.

Forster's team-mate Mathias Flückiger looked fit to win but a puncture cut him out of contention eventually relegating him to 5th place. In the leading group, in addition to Forster, we found a surprising Luca Schwazbauer (Canyon CLLCTV) and Ondrej Cink (Primaflor Mondraker Genius Race Team), who has finally returned to his level.

Forster ended Fluckiger's bad luck by taking home an important victory for Team Thomus Maxom. Behind him, Luca Schwarzbauer takes 2nd place despite his tonnage, certainly not that of a climber. Third place for Ondrej Cink (Primaflor Mondraker).

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
