Northwave claimed another podium spot at the Mountain Bike World Championships in the Junior Women race, first individual event of the Cross Country programme, after the three medals grabbed in the Team Relay: the gold medals by Swiss Filippo Colombo and Jolanda Neff and the silver medal claimed by Danish Malene Degn.
On Thursday September 7th, French Loana Lecomte, 18-year-old biker equipped by Northwave with Extreme XC shoes, took a wonderful silver after a head-to-head with the new World Champion, Austrian Laura Strigger. Swiss Nadia Grod completed the day’s podium.
Tomorrow, Friday September 8th, the Worlds programme in Cairns (Australia), will continue with the U23 Men’s race. Northwave will count on some top riders of the category like the European Champion Gioele Bertolini (Italy), the winner of World Cup’s opening round in Nove Mesto Petter Fagerhaug (Norway), Jan Vastl (Czech Republic) and Filippo Colombo (Switzerland) that has the chance to conquer another World medal.
