Swiss Epic victory for Bigham and Morath

Topeak-Ergon’s Sally Bigham and her race partner Adelheid Morath from Freiburg/Germany win the 6-day Swiss Epic from 14th-19th September in the Swiss Alps. Alban Lakata and Kristian Hynek take third.

After four stage victories and a lead of more than 50 minutes on last year’s winners Annika Langvad and Ariane Kleinhans the Topeak-Ergon duo with the green-yellow jerseys drove home an unchallenged overall victory.

Even Sally was overwhelmed: ”Adel and me just have won the Swiss-Epic — how cool is that?” Iron Sally said afterwards and did not forget whom she had to thank: ”What a cool experience and a great partnership! Thanks Adel Morath for the great time!”

Also the Topeak-Ergon guys deserve great respect. Despite several defects the reigning Marathon World Champion Alban Lakata and last year’s Cape Epic winner Kristian Hynek took a third place in the overall classification.

The Swiss Epic was held this year for the second time and covered 6 stages, with a total distance of 400km, and around 15,000m of elevation. The race promotes itself as a new format of stage races, with a course that uses highly technical routes in the Swiss Alps, to the joy of the racers.
