EURO MTB: SILVER MEDAL FOR JENNY RISSVEDS - In Husqvarna Sidi was also a major player in the women’s field.

At the European Mountain Bike Championships that hit the scene in Husqvarna, Sweden, Sidi shined even in the women’s field. In the women’s under 23 cross country race, hometown athlete Jenny Rissveds, who will be defending the team Scott-Odlo colours during the season, captured the silver medal.

The Swedish biker from Falun was one of the favourites at the outset, and she got off to a very strong start as the local crowd cheered her on. Unfortunately however, in the finals Switzerland’s Sina Frei caught uptoJenny and passed her, going on to win the race. Britain’s Evie Richards scored the bronze to complete the podium. In the race and on the podium, Jenny Rissveds could count on her Sidi Drako Carbon Srs shoes, which continue to reign as the top models in Sidi Sport’s off-road collection.

Jenny Rissveds’ silver medal thus completes Sidi’s medal haul from the European Championships in Husqvarna. It fits perfectly between the gold and bronze medals captured respectively by Julien Absalon and Ondrej Cink in the men’s race.
