After Friday’s gruelling climbs and rapid descents, the riders faced their final challenge, a 300m ascent to Gerschnialp.
Spain’s Ibon Zugasti again proved his strength on the climb, as he moved up the rankings and secured the final race victory of the first Snow Epic.
Following closely was Switzerland’s Silvio Büsser, who beat Tomi Misser by only 7/10 of a second. Spaniard Misser, however, still secured the overall victory in the men’s category. Second overall was Rune Hoydahl from Norway ahead of Büsser.
Swiss legend Esther Süss once again won the women’s category and secured the overall victory. In second and third position were Alba Wunderlin and Amber Stull. The podium for Race 5 therefore matched the overall podium for the women’s category.
