MTB Worlds: Schurter takes his ninth cross-country title

It is no secret that Nino Schurter has been struggling - for him - in the past year, with no World Cup wins, missing the podium at the 2020 World Championships, and finishing out of the medals at the Tokyo Olympic Games. However, on Saturday at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Val di Sole, Italy, he proved that he is still at the top by winning his ninth elite men's Cross-country (XCO) title. Compatriot Mathias Flückiger took silver and Victor Koretzky of France won the bronze medal.
