Several road riders switched the road for the mud in the second annual Red Bull Velodux in Estavayer-le-Lac, Switzerland earlier this month.

Among those taking part were a number of Switzerland’s WorldTour riders, including BMC’s Stefan Kung, Danilo Wyss and Silvan Dillier, Orica-GreenEdge’s Michael Albasini and IAM Cycling’s Jonathan Fumeaux and Sebastien Reichenbach. They were joined by Swiss mountain bike stars Lukas and Mathias Fluckiger, and Simon Andreasson.

After a Le Mans-style start, the tough course brought the riders down stairs, over ramps, cobbles and through the mud.

Swiss cyclo-cross rider Lukas Winterberg won with his partner and mountain biker Nicola Rorhbach. Sina Frei and Lara Krahemann won the women’s event ahead of Chrystelle Baumann and Eliane Muggler.
