Stošek and Stutzmann dominated the Swiss Epic, Seewald and Dohrn won Grand Raid

One of the most successful weeks is behind the Canyon Northwave MTB Team. Martin Stošek together with Marc Stutzmann won the Swiss Epic stage race. On Saturday, August 19, Andreas Seewald and Stefanie Dohrn won the prestigious Swiss Grand Raid marathon.

In the five-stage race Swiss Epic 2023, the Czech-Swiss duo Stošek / Stutzmann managed to grab a total of three stage victories and dominated the race in a masterful way with a lead of 7 and a half minutes on the second team.

"I'm very happy, Marc also rode great. Fortunately, we had only one puncture, otherwise everything went according to plan. We had a great performance, so we didn't have to take too many risks. The last day we were quite nervous, six and a half minutes can seem like a big lead, on the other hand, if we had a bad puncture - like a cut tire, it would not be enough. Fortunately, nothing happened.  It was a beautiful end of the race, we enjoyed the celebrations and I am very satisfied, I have to appreciate the performance of Marc," said Martin Stošek about the race.
