Indergand Racing on Home Soil this Sunday23. June 2017 — Melanie Leveau — MTB Team
Reto Indergand will be one of the favorites of the next round of the Proffix Swiss Bike Cup taking place this weekend in Andermatt, a few kilometers away from his home town.
The Proffix Swiss Bike Cup will stop for the first time in Andermatt (Kanton Uri), a novelty that Reto Indergand is very happy about. The 26-year-old rider grew up in Silenen, a few kilometers away from the race course and the ski slopes where he used to spend a lot of his winter days. Sunday’s race will of course feel a bit special for him: “I'm excited and I’d like to do a good race for my fans and for the organisers. That makes me more nervous than for any other race but I don't feel any kind of pressure from their side. But I can feel I put myself under a bit more pressure than usual...”
“The track is entirely new” he explains. “It has a bit of everything: grass, a challenging uphill with switchbacks, a bobsleigh-like ramp and a nice single trail section leading to the finish line.”
Indergand is hoping for a perfect race which would most likely mean a podium position and precious points for the overall classification of the Swiss Bike Cup which he won last season.
