The 10th Fullgaz UCI cross country race weekend kicked off Saturday with the XCC short track race. After 10 laps of the short course and just over 21 minutes of racing, Indergand (Liv Factory) finished second, just three seconds behind Jolanda Neff.
In Sunday’s XCO, Indergand sprinted hard off the start and pushed the pace at the front for each of the seven laps. Moving into the lead ahead of the final lap, Indergand pulled a gap on the rest of the riders and crossed the finish line in 1:25:15 with the win aboard her Pique Advanced Pro 29, 30 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher.
“I’m really happy about my results this weekend,” said Indergand. “I found myself in the front group for the entire race, and tried to keep the pace high, which worked well. In the last lap, I knew that Jolanda was tired, so I hit the gas and took a gap, and she could not keep the pace. In the end, I crossed the finish line with a healthy lead. It was a great win!”
Indergand will toe the start line again this weekend race in Monte-Tamaro, Switzerland.
