Cascades World Cup Test event, Pietermaritzburg, 11-03-2012

14. March 2012

A rip-roaring start to the new XC season
At the XC "Test event" in the Cascades MTB Park (RSA) a week before the first World Cup race of the year, the BMC MTB Racing Team delivered an outstanding dress rehearsal. Moritz Milatz was the 4th to reach the goal in the race of 6 very technically challenging laps, with Patrick Gallati close on his tail who managed an outstanding 5th place finish
In the Olympic year 2012, all Swiss Olympic candidates are already looking to show their early form at the start of the season: No fewer than 7 Swiss bikes placed in the top 10. Nino Schurter won the race ahead of home riders Burry Stander and Florian Vogel.
The performance by Reto Indergand (17th), Stephen Ettinger (19th) and Julien Taramarcaz (32nd) also have the BMC MTB Team hopeful before the World Cup kicks off in South Africa next weekend.
