Flückiger-Cross 2013

Summary: Lukas Flückiger wins the second Flückiger-Cross event in Madiswil.

The second edition of the Flückiger-Cross cyclocross event took place today in Madiswil, Switzerland. The winner of the Elite Men’s race was Lukas Flückiger (BMC Racing Team), closely followed by Marcel Wildhaber (Scott-Swisspower MTB Racing Team) and Simon Zahner (EKZ Racing Team), both on the same time.  The next three places were taken by Arnaud Grand, Ralph Näf and Julien Absalon (all BMC).

Co-organiser Mathias Flückiger was unfortunately unable to compete owing to a broken arm sustained during training prior to the event, and after the race had finished news filtered out that Andri Frischknecht (Scott Swisspower MTB Racing Team) had broken his collarbone in a fall, on what was his first CX outing.

In a cruel vindication of the old saying that bad things happen in threes (alle schlechten Dinge sind drei?), Ralph Näf reported just three days later that he had injured a calf muscle during training and would have to retire from competition for the rest of the 2013 season.

The full results can be found here and there is a detailed newspaper report (in German) here.
