The World MTB Champs were run in Italy on the weekend and were notable for two things. A true legend of the sport, Thomas Frischknecht rode his last World's after making his debut in 91 in Durango. The guy's won everything there is to win, World Cups, World Champs in XC and Marathon, even cyclocross World titles. In his honour, I might have to sport a DT SWiss fork on my bike... thanks Frischy!
Speaking of sick bikes, the new 2009 Epic made it's debut under another Swiss gun, Christophe Sauser. And what better way to showcase a brand new design than by winning the World title? None. Check out what a real hot bike looks like here.
