Schurter earns fifth win of the season

Süss victorious in women's race

Nino Schurter (Scott-Swisspower) and Esther Süss (Wheeler-IXS Pro Team) won the third round of the Swiss Racer Bikes Cup in Solothurn this weekend.

Schurter took his fifth victory of the season ahead of Christoph Sauser (Specialized) by five seconds. Martin Gujan (Cannondale) was third.

The men's race started fast and one of the favorites Moritz Milatz (BMC), crashed in the first corner and had to chase from behind - he eventually pulled out. Another favorite, Florian Vogel (Scott-Swisspower) suffered a flat on the second lap and fell far behind the leaders although he later worked his way up to seventh.

On the fourth of seven total laps, Schurter and Sauser escaped off the front together. The duo quickly grew their lead and the final climb proved decisive in Schurter's favor.

In the women's race, last year's winner Süss rode to victory again, this time with more than three minutes' advantage. Local favorite Nathalie Schneitter (Colnago Arreghini Südtirol) was cheered on by hometown fans and got as close as to within seven seconds of Süss. Schneitter finished second with Sabine Spitz (Central Haibike) in third. Irina Kalentieva (Topeak Ergon) locked up fourth.

Swiss champion Jolanda Neff won the junior women's race ahead of European champion Linda Indergand and German champion Johanna Techt.

European champion Lars Forster won the junior men's race while Stefan Peter took the amateur and master category.
