Stander stands tall on final day

Platt and Swiss Schneitter take overall titles

After five gruelling days, the second edition of the Langkawi International Mountainbike Challenge concluded Saturday with Germany’s Karl Platt and Switzerland’s Nathalie Schneitter clinching overall victory in the elite men’s and women’s categories respectively.

Team Bulls rider Platt was a dominant force in his category, winning stages two and four and the king of the hill and never finished outside the top three throughout the entire event to take home the top prize.

The runner-up was South Africa’s Burry Stander of Team Specialized, who won the final stage, a 12-lap short track, but he finished over three minutes behind Platt overall. Italy's Johnny Cattaneo of Full-Dynamix was third.

World No. 8 Nathalie Schneitter of Colnago Farbe Sudtirol was unquestionably the mountain bike queen of Langkawi as she bagged four stages, her final day win the icing on the cake.

In the men’s senior master category, Australian rider Craig Peacock took the overall win, followed by Lieb Loots of South Africa’s Squirt outfit and Adelaide Mountainbike Club’s John Edwin Allison.

In the men’s master category, Marzio Deho of Team Olympia Italy emerged on top, ahead of Britain’s Anthony White (Cannondale Mount Zoom Racing) and Malcolm McLeod (R and R Sport) of New Zealand.
