Dominant duos celebrate victory at Swiss Epic 2020
Nino Schurter’s hunger for victories has clearly not been dampened by an absence from racing. The SCOTT-SRAM star and his teammate, Lars Forster, raced to their fourth stage win of the 2020 Swiss Epic
The duo had no need to win the final stage in Davos, but they did so regardless.
Annika Langvad and Haley Batten put in a perfect performance, for Specialized – Racing, winning all 5 stages and the overall Swiss Epic title.
The Danish/American combination were peerless throughout the race through Graubünden, winning the overall title by 38 minutes and 19 seconds.
