Switzerland’s Nino Schurter claimed his second – consecutive - UCI World Cup victory of the season after a tense final lap that saw the Olympic and UCI World Champion cross the line 4 seconds ahead of Italian Gerhard Kerschbaumer. After sitting out the last round, Mathieu Van der Poel won the short track (XCC) but only managed 16th in Sunday’s XCO. American Kate Courtney had a perfect weekend, winning both the XCC and the XCO. She never appeared in trouble despite a valiant attempt by Jolanda Neff to close the gap. The Swiss crossed the line 33 seconds back in second place.

French downhillers were in great form to celebrate Bastille weekend, taking first (Amaury Pierron), second (Loïc Bruni) and fifth (Loris Vergier) in the Elite Men competition and second (Marie Cabirou) in the Elite Women. Cabirou completed the hot and dusty course just 0.677 seconds behind Australian Tracey Hannah.

The Netherlands’ Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton Scott) has won the Italian stage race for the second year running. The time trial UCI World Champion demonstrated her incredible versatility with her two stage wins: she was unstoppable on the queen stage five, attacking on the final climb up the Passo Fraele to reach Lago di Cancano almost three minutes ahead of the chasing group, then extended her overall lead the next day with a comfortable win in the uphill 12.1km time trial. Also winner of the points and mountain classifications, van Vleuten was joined on the overall podium in Udine on Sunday by fellow Dutchwoman Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans CyclingTeam) and fellow Mitchelton Scott team-member Amanda Spratt (Australia).
