Kerschbaumer wins U23 Word Cup

Van Der Heijden clinches overall title

TX Active-Bianchi's Gerhard Kerschbaumer celebrated a solo win in the U23 men's cross country race at the final World Cup in Val d'Isère, France on Saturday. He finished with a 30-second advantage on Jordan Sarrou (Lapierre International) and a 1:01 advantage on Daniele Braidot.

"I started well, then I crashed twice in the early race with the rain-soaked course making the race harder for the whole field," said Kershbaumer. "In the second lap, I was leading the race with Austrian Gehbauer, then I kept my pace going to take a solo win."

Michiel Van der Heijden (Netherlands) won the U23 men's World Cup overall.
