Kate Courtney showed her class with an impressive 2nd place at the the BMC Racing Cup in Solothurn, Switzerland. The Swiss race marked the final preparations for the first two World Cups coming up this month in Abstadt, Germany and Nove Mesto, Czech Republic.
Courtney on the world-class podium.
The muddy, slick race conditions were extreme and the competition world class, but Courtney was up to the challenge as she battled for a hard-earned podium finish among some of the best young riders in the world.
A muddy, happy Kate Courtney.
Thank goodness for SRAM XX1!
