MTBO World Cup: Clear wins for Stengård and Foliforov at middle distance

Posted on | April 16, 2011 | Category: News

Ingrid Stengård, Finland and Anton Foliforov, Russia enjoyed convincing victories in the middle distance race, the second race in the Hungary round of the World Cup.

Stengård, who was placed 8th at middle distance in last year’s World Championships, produced a much better performance today with a victory by 39 seconds over her compatriot Marika Hara, winner of the sprint yesterday. Third place went to Renata Paulickova, Czech Republic who was a further 47 seconds down.

Current long distance world champion Foliforov, 6th overall in last year’s World Cup, had an even bigger margin of victory – a whole 1 minute and 14 seconds faster than his nearest rival, Samuli Saarela, Finland. A good day for top placings for the Finnish team was rounded off by third placed Jussi Laurila, 4 seconds slower than Saarela.

The race took place on hilly and stony karst terrain, a strong test of riding skills for all the participants.
