With no one less than mountain bike legend Nino Schurter, the Bike Kingdom Lenzerheide has presented its new king. The Swiss cross-country hero is a more than worthy heir to Belgian ripper Thomas Genon, who ruled of the bike monarchy in the Swiss Alps as their first sovereign in 2020.
“The Bike Kingdom simply offers everything for mountain biking. From flowing trails to technically demanding passages. All of this embedded in a beautiful landscape. For me it also means home”, says the new king.
The new ambassador celebrated his most emotional victory to date in his career as a mountain biker in the Bike Kingdom: “At the home World Cup in 2018, when I was able to defend my title, the atmosphere was simply incredible. The audience freaked out and cheered me on. And all 25 minutes away from my home – this feeling can hardly be put into words even today.”
As his first official act, King Nino introduced the new video series “Ninos Bike Kingdom class” whose first installment is already available on YouTube:
