Schurter & Neff Win 2017 XC World Champions

It was Swiss domination in XC world championships on the dusty Cairns track in Australia as Swedes Nino Schurter and Jolanda Neff won the elite men’s and women’s respectively.

Cat and mouse tactics paid off for Nino Schurter who bested a reborn Kuhlavy and Litscher in the sixth lap, when the Swiss decided to speed up and leavin everyone in the dust, clutching his sixth world title and following up his first ever perfect season in XC with the cherry on top.
