Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds gloRIOous in Rio

The Hunt for Glory has come to a Golden end, in a double sense- Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds dominate the most prestigious MTB competition in the world and set a milestone in MTB history.

For the last year and a half, we have been following Nino Schurter on his #huntforglory, the greatest award for an athlete in the world. This past Sunday, that goal was achieved. What an incredible accomplishment from an incredible athlete. As if this weren’t enough, we are also incredibly proud of Nino’s teammate, Jenny Rissveds, who also beat the world’s best to claim gold in Rio.

It started with a win in Cairns, followed by another in Albstadt, eventually a double World Championship in Nove Mesto, a double World Cup win in Lenzerheide, and now two gold medals in Rio. For the past 18 months, Nino and Jenny have been better than most.
