Wilier Pirelli Factory and Davos Klosters Women Win 2022 SPAR Swiss Epic

The fifth and final stage of the 2022 SPAR Swiss Epic saw Wilier Pirelli Factory and Davos Klosters Women secure the overall title of the 2022 event upon crossing the finish line in Davos 359 kilometres after the race began in Arosa.
Wilier Pirelli’s Stage 5 victory was their fourth stage win of the event and saw them secure the overall title in a time of 16:19:40; Singer Racing team finished both second on the final stage and second on the general classification, 7 minutes and 32 seconds behind Geismayr and Rabensteiner. Drama for KTM ALCHEMIST & ATTITUDE, in the form of a puncture, saw them slip from the GC podium as BUFF MEGAMO’S Hans Becking and Jose Dias finished in third overall, 27 minutes and 10 seconds behind Wilier Pirelli.
In the women’s race, it was a day of drama and excitement as an early crash rattled Davos Klosters Women and mechanical issues for MTB Pro Merchandising – Team Cingolani put both teams the back foot. Team Efficient Infiniti Insure / Rare Street Coffee grabbed the opportunity with both hands and raced to their first stage victory of the 2022 SPAR Swiss Epic ahead of Adelheid Morath and Bettina Janas.
Morath and Janas’ lead at the beginning of the final stage was 13 minutes 37 seconds over MTB Pro Merchandising – Team Cingolani, meaning Looser and Le Court’s stage victory did not threaten their top spot on the SPAR Swiss Epic podium and they raised their bikes in victory in a total time of 20:48:16.
