Liv Racing’s cross country mountain bike World Cup athletes Linda Indergand (Liv Factory) and Sandra Walter (Liv Racing Collective) are filling their calendars in Europe in between the larger races. The PROFFIX Swiss Bike Cup in Gränichen attracted a star-studded start list as the athletes prepare for the next World Cup in Les Gets, France on July 4.
The air was hot, and the course was dry in Gränichen, unique for it’s location in a gravel pit without major climbs but with punchy rises, loose corners, and features. Indergand had a strong performance in front of a home crowd. Vying for the lead with Evie Richards and Sina Frei for the first half of the race, Indergand crossed the finish line in third. Coming off a top-30 finish in Leogang, Walter continued to show good form and finished seventh. Both Indergand and Walter raced aboard the Pique Advanced Pro 29.
