Chur expects the world's best



On 7 May, the second round of the ÖKK BIKE REVOLUTION will take place in Chur. The race is listed as "Hors Category" in the calendar by the cycling world federation UCI and thus belongs to the exclusive circle of top mountain bike events worldwide this season. Chur has several very exciting stories to offer this year.

World champion Nino Schurter's home race

The race in Chur is the home race of Nino Schurter (37). The 10-time World Champion and 2016 Olympic Champion lives just five minutes away from the start and finish area in Chur's old town. Schurter is not that close to the World Cup in Lenzerheide. In Chur, Schurter was actively involved in the planning and construction of the cross-country course. And of course, a particularly large number of Schurter fans are expected in Chur. The Nino Schurter Fan Club, for example, will take part in the popular Gusto Rides the day before.

Youth and amateur sports side by side with the world champions

In addition to the races of the world elite on Sunday, the ÖKK BIKE REVOLUTION also offers races for children, junior categories and amateur athletes on Saturday. Particularly popular are the Gusto Rides, which put the scenic and culinary highlights around the venue in the foreground without time measurement.

Field of participants like at a World Cup

The start list in Chur reads like that of a World Cup race. In the women's race, the Swiss Alessandra Keller (world no. 1), Jolanda Neff (Olympic champion) and Sina Frei (silver at the 2021 Olympic Games) will be up against Laura Stigger (AUT, world no. 11), Kate Courtney (USA, world champion 2018) or Evie Richards (GBR, world champion 2021). The men's starting list is also spectacular. With Nino Schurter, Titouan Carod (FRA), Martin Vidaurre (CHI), Vlad Dascalu (ROM) and Jordan Sarrou (FRA), there are five from the top 10. Well-known names like Mathias Flückiger or Christopher Blevins (USA) impressively round off the starting field. Until the start on 7 May, more top cracks are likely to appear on the start list in Chur.
