Nino Schurter Stays Perfect
August 7, 2017, 12:00 am

While the cycling world might be coming down off a month-long Tour de France high, it might feel like a lull between the Tour and the last Grand Tour of the season, La Vuelta. But under the radar, the fifth round of the UCI MTB World Cup moved to North America for the traditional stop in Mount St. Anne in Canada. For the fifth race in a row, Switzerland's Nino Schurter took the win. 

It's becoming a familiar sight; Schurter's playful, entertaining style deceptively turns into a dominant outing. There's no course that doesn't suit him. He's as strong a climber as he is dominant on the descents, and he's acknowledged as the best bike-handler on the circuit. If he has a weakness, no one has found it yet, no matter how much they look. 

'Perfect' isn't a word you'll hear very often in professional sports, but rarer still in professional cycling. The best riders in the world win perhaps a dozen times a year, and even mountain biking boasts some level or parity that largely keeps even the most talented riders largely in check. But perfect is exactly what Schurter is thus far in 2017, making a clean sweep of the five World Cup races so far. In fact, his perfect five-for-five is a record, and if he chooses to race the final round of the year, he'll ensure that six-for-six could only ever be matched and never broken. His 1,250 World Cup points mean he's already wrapped up the season title, even if he doesn't race again. Second place is 550 points away! 

Nino's bike of choice for the rough and technical Mount St. Anne course was the Spark 900, Scott's top of the line full suspension XC bike. You can see Scott's incredible photo gallery from the weekend here, too.
