Swiss Epic, stage 2: A Similar Scenario16. September 2015, Leukerbad, Switzerland — MTB Team
There is already a well-established hierarchy at the Swiss Epic. The same three teams have been fighting for podium spots since the beginning of the event, and the BMC MTB Racing Team comprising of Martin Fanger and Reto Indergand crossed the finished in fourth place - for the third day in a row.
Similar to yesterday, three teams were in the battle for the win on the last climb of the day. Martin Fanger and Reto Indergand were in the mix until the last few kilometres when they couldn’t hold on any longer, and they lost contact with the leaders. In the end, they crossed the finish line only 5 mins and 32 secs behind today’s eventual winners Mathias Flückiger and Lukas Buchli. The BMC MTB Racing Team has now consolidated its fourth position in the overall classification.
Tomorrow’s stage will take the riders for a 93km long journey scaling 3’100 height meters between Leukerbad and Grächen; another big day ahead!
