Frischknecht and Wloszcowska win first event of MTB Champs

On a day with raging winds in the hills and on a very difficult course, it was MTB and cyclocross veteran, Thomas Frischknecht (Swi) who took out the Marathon in 3:48:01; way ahead of the scheduled finishing time. Frischknecht was elated with his win, throwing himself down on the nearby high jump in the Cornaredo Stadium with the media flocking around him he beat Bart Brentjens in a very close sprint finish. In the women's race it was 19 year old Maja Wloszcowska (Poland) who took the win in her first marathon race ever. Maja was surprised with her win as she expected to use the marathon only as training and is now looking forward to racing the cross country next Sunday with the same form.

1014 riders, men and women, lined up outside the stadium this morning for a mass start to the 78km race in Lugano, Switzerland. The sun was shining but strong winds were reported at the top of the mountain. The course consisted of 28 kilometers of paved road, 28km of dirt road and 22 km of single track and according to most riders the dirt road was just as technical as the single track and the hills were steep. The course was up and down all day with a short steep climb on the road right at the start. Eventually after 40km the final climb reached the 1650m peak at Capanna Bar and the descent to the finish began. The wind at the top of the mountain caused the most havoc for riders who were getting blown off their bikes and off the course.

In the men's race it was Frischknecht who led early until Frenchman Thomas Dietsch powered up the final climb to lead by two minutes over Bart Brentjens. At the top, Frischknecht was trailing Brentjens by 30 seconds in what looked like race over with Dietsch on such a good day. Frischknecht caught Brentjens on the descent and opened up a 15 second lead on him as they realized Dietsch had punctured in front of them.

It was bad luck for Dietsch, but for Frischknecht and Brentjens a whole new race had begun, this time for first place. Brentjens chased Frischknecht all the way back to town and finally caught him with only a few kilometers remaining in the race. As they entered the crowded stadium they were neck and neck with 300m to go. In the last 100m, Frischknecht was too strong and powered away from Brentjens to take the first ever MTB Marathon World Championship title.

Dietch managed to repair his tyre and finish in a disappointing 9th place and Carsten Bresser (Germany) rounded of the podium to take the Bronze medal, four minutes behind the winner.

Frischknecht was swamped by fans and journalists after a very exciting win in his home country and a very pleasant way to end his career. "It was certainly the dot on the i for me to finally win the rainbow jersey. It is something you always dream of. When I was 18 and 21 I won it in cyclocross but then I really didn't understand what it meant. In 1991 I also won the Worlds in Cyclocross but then I had to go to the Army for 12 weeks the next day for the worst time of my life and I really didn't have time to enjoy it. So now after 13 years of trying (about 20 races Cyclocross and MTB) since 1991, I finally have it and it means a lot. It is a nice way to finish my career.

" I decided to do the marathon at the beginning of July. The organization wanted me to start both events so I tried my new bike (Scott Genius) and decided I would do it. I thought that if I had a good race in the marathon it would give me motivation for the cross country."

Brentjens was disappointed, but gracious in defeat. "To be second is always disappointing, but Thomas (Frischknecht) was very strong in the sprint and there was no way I could beat him. After Thomas caught me on the downhill I was chasing for a while and I finally caught him in the last few kilometers so it was a very close race.

"I felt good today but I really didn't think I could do anything to beat Dietsch. He was so strong today. He was at least 2 minutes in front of us before he flatted. I suppose that's MTB racing. Thomas (Frischknecht) and I suddenly found ourselves racing for the win so everything changed."

American rider Jeremiah Bishop finished 48th today after hoping to finish in the top five. His disappointment was masked by his relief just to be able to start the race after a difficult week in the lead up. "I was excited just to be able to race today considering the week I have had leading up to it. My wheels didn't turn up when I flew from the states, so I had to ride part of the course yesterday on a bike I borrowed from the hotel owner. Today I used wheels I borrowed from a lady in the car park and I had some very nice strangers feeding me.

"The course was so hard out there. I have never seen anything like that climb. The wind was so powerful that it was hard to keep your bike on the ground and I nearly got blown off the course a few times. The dirt road sections were also difficult; there were so many loose river rocks which made the uphill very hard. I often had to get off my bike and walk it. I had heard the course was open and technical but in reality it was very technical and hard."

In the women's event the race was not as tactical. They raced amongst the men on the same course and it was more of a war of attrition. In the end it was the young Polish riders who dominated the day with Maya Wloszcowska placing first and Magdalena Sadlecka taking second in their first marathon event.

Surprised at her win today Maya Wloszcowska spoke to Cyclingnews about the harsh conditions. "It is the first time I have seen the course so each rock was new on each bend. Two days ago I was angry that we had to ride the same distance as the men. 78km is long for women, especially on this course with all the difficult down hills and today with the strong winds at the top of the mountain. I was getting blown off my bike.

"At the beginning it was training for me, but then I found myself in first place. I didn't expect it. I really just wanted to finish but when I realized I was first it was a big surprise and I am very happy now. Our success today wouldn't have been possible without our coach and our sponsors. We have very good sponsors who give us good support so we have a strong team. You will see next Sunday I hope!"

Third placed rider Sandra Klose is more experienced at this length of racing, but even she found it difficult today. "I crashed early in the race so the rest wasn't so easy for me. At the top of the hill it was very hard to stay on your bike. I have done a lot of marathon races, it is my specialty, but this was the most difficult. It felt like 65 km of cross country."

Unlike Wloszcowska, Klose will not be competing in the cross country event next weekend. "I cannot compete because I am not in the National team. The National coach told me that if I raced the marathon I would not be allowed to race the cross country. I don't think this was a good decision, but I am happy with my result today.

Tomorrow and Tuesday are two training days before the racing begins again on Wednesday with the junior women's cross country and the team relay events.
