Epic racing at penultimate round of UCI Marathon World Cup in Morzine-Avoriaz

8 months ago

Racers took to Morzine-Avoriaz’s world famous trails to tackle a 100km course that featured a savage 4000 metres of climbing, including the sort of technical terrain that is synonymous with the Portes du Soleil region.

First across the line was Colombia’s Hector Leonardo Paez Leon, who completed the race in an unbelievable time of four hours and fifty minutes. The two times UCI Marathon World Champion finished just 34 seconds ahead of Italy’s Diego Rosa, with Andreas Seewald of Germany rounding out the podium in third. 

In the women’s race Vera Looser of Namibia put on a typically dominant performance to finish the race in first, posting a time of six hours and nine minutes. The ten times Namibian Time Trial Champion was more than one minute and 30 seconds ahead of closest rival Lejla Njemcevic of Bosnia Herzegovina. Switzerland’s Irina Luetzelschwab took third. 

The UCI Marathon World Cup concludes in two weeks time in Snowshoe, West Virginia in the United States of America. 

Full results from today’s race can be found here. 

Racing continues tomorrow at the UCI Mountain Bike World Series Festival Haute-Savoie when the enduro riders will conclude their season amongst Chatel’s iconic slopes.
