Switzerland’s Mathias Flückiger claimed a quick victory in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Overall at the UCI World Cup Finals in Snowshoe, USA.
The 32-year-old is crowning his most successful season for himself and his Thömus RN Swiss Bike Team with this most prestigious title in the mountain biking scene. Flückiger’s performance is unprecedented for the team, which does not rely on a global brand but on bikes from Swiss bicycle manufacturer Thömus.
Mathias Flückiger wins the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup
Mathias Flückiger is overjoyed: “2021 has been physically and mentally my most demanding season. I was able to finish on the podium in every race this year. In particular, the silver medals at the Olympics and the World Championships show that I have reached the top of the world. I was the most consistent runner of the season. That’s why winning the World Cup overall is well deserved and makes me extremely proud.
Careful work and close cooperation with the bicycle manufacturer as the reasons for success
Team manager Ralph Näf adds: “The meticulous work of the entire team has paid off this year. Especially when it comes to hardware, we see a huge advantage in the close cooperation with the Swiss bicycle manufacturer Thömus. This allows us to actively influence the development of racing bikes and adapt them to Math’s riding style. “
There is also joy in Oberried, where Thömus has been producing bikes and supporting racing for 30 years. CEO Thomas Binggeli said: “Together with Mathias Flückiger we have developed the Lightrider, the best mountain bike Thömus has ever produced. This in terms of agility, weight and speed. We are proud of Math!
