Nathalie Schneitter (SUI/29) again showed a strong performance at the European championships in Italy, however, she didn’t have luck with her tyres. After a perfect start, the rider of the ROSE Vaujany fueled by ultraSPORTS team had a punctured tyre and was thus out of contention for the top positions in Chies d’Alpago. Jolanda Neff (SUI/22) who had been beaten by Schneitter at the Swiss championships the week before won the race and is the new European champion. Blog
David Schmied (GER/24) of the ROSE Vaujany fueled by ultraSPORTS team finished one of the world 's mostpopular downhill marathons with a 13th place.

Steffen Thum (GER/31) extends his lead in the mountains classification of the Bike Transalp.

His team colleague of the ROSE Vaujany fueled by ultraSPORTS team Simon Gegenheimer (GER/26) took back his lead in the Enduro classification and so the two of them will start the final stage towards the Lake Garda in classification Jerseys.
