It took 87-plus kilometers and 4,700 meters of climbing, deep in the heart of the Dolomites, before a new mountain bike Marathon World Champion could be crowned. Showing clear authority and strength over the rest of the field, Alban Lakata of Austria and Gunn-Rita Dahle of Norway took home the gold medals and earned the right to wear rainbow World Champion jerseys.
The men’s event took nearly 4.5 hours of racing and Lakata rode away with another Marathon World Championship title — a second title for him and a first ever for the new SRAM RISE 60 wheels. Lakata’s machine was also equipped with a SRAM XX1 drive train, SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes and RockShox RS-1, helping him maintain a substantial lead throughout the entire race. Following him in second place was former multi-time World Champion Christoph Sauser who was also on board SRAM XX1 drive train, SRAM XX brakes and RockShox SID front suspension.
The women’s race was anything but anti-climactic covering 3,400 vertical meters in over 60 kilometers through the picturesque mountains of northern Italy. In the end, Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesja of Norway claimed her 6th Marathon World Championship title. Annika Langvad of Denmark remained in the hunt for a majority of the race, finishing just behind in 2nd. Both Gunn-Rita and Annika used SRAM XX1 drive trains, SRAM Guide RSC & XX brakes with RockShox RS-1 front suspension.
