Litscher is U23 XC World Champion

Friday, September 02, 2011

Champéry, Switzerland – Felt Ötztal X-Bionic’s Thomas Litscher has achieved the ultimate, and wrapped up the 2011 season with a Gold Medal in the U23 XC Race at the Mountain Bike World Championships in Champéry, Switzerland. This victory comes after a silver medal in the Team Relay race earlier in the week.

Racing on home soil was beneficial for Litscher, who lead most of the race. As each lap passed, Litscher increased his gap on the field, so much so that he was able to dismount and walk across the finish line with his Felt Edict held above his head, saluting the crowd as he passed.

This comes to Litscher after a Silver medal in the U23 XC at the 2010 World Championships in Mont Sainte Anne, Canada.
