Even though the Austrian weather
posed quite a challenge to course builders and athletes alike, the Urban
Challenge in Westendorf (AUT) was able to rise to the international standards
set by the FMBA for the World Tour events.
The riders delivered an impressive performance that left local hero Niki Leitner with a narrow lead of 14 points and a spot in the top ten of the overall FMB World Tour ranking. Only Thomas Zejda (CZE) was able to break the Austrian dominance in the top three, with Clemens Kaudela (AUT) taking third place. In the overall ranking, the Czech national is still one spot ahead of Niki Leitner -- the two athletes are battling it out between 7th and 8th position.
