    N1NO SCHURTER

    The Legend of MTB

    Switzerland’s Nino Schurter has already achieved status as one of the legends of mountain biking. Scott Bicycles team manager Thomas Frischknecht has said that Nino is the greatest rider in the history of the sport, and Nino looks like he’s well on his way to proving that claim.

    Now 33, Nino recently completed what may well be the greatest year of competitive success in the history of mountain bike racing.

    Nino started off the past year by winning the Absa Cape Epic in South Africa, a race widely considered the toughest mountain bike race in the world. After that, Nino went on to win all six World Cup races of the year, clinching the overall title in commanding fashion without a single loss, racking up the first perfect World Cup season in history. It was his sixth overall World Cup title.

    As if that weren’t enough, Nino also won the UCI World Championship in the Elite Men’s division this past year. It was his sixth win at the highest level of the sport, breaking the record for the Elite Men’s cross-country division. If that’s not enough, you can add Nino’s three other UCI World Championship titles to that number. He won his first UCI World Championship as a junior in 2004, then picked up two more titles in the U23 division (2006 and 2008) before he moved up to the Elite Men’s category.

    Add up all of Nino’s accomplishments, including his bronze, silver and gold medals from the last three Olympics, and you have one of the greatest mountain bike racers in history, and he’s just finished the best year of his career. Good Luck for the season!
