Swiss rider Jolanda Neff picked up the Cross Country title in the German town of Albstadt, following her victory in the World Cup at Nové Mesto na Morave in the Czech Republic. The latest win comes less than two weeks before Neff will compete at the Baku 2015 European Games.

The next-best Baku-bound rider at the event was Poland's European Games Athlete Ambassador Maja Wloszczowska, who finished fifth.

The men's race was won by Frenchman Julien Absalon, while Switzerland's Nino Schurter finished second, and Nové Mesto na Morave race winner Jaroslav Kulhavý of the Czech Republic came third.

Both Schurter and Kulhavý are in their final preparations for Baku 2015, as are Swiss riders Fabian Giger and Lukas Flückiger, who finished sixth and seventh respectively in Albstadt.

The French duo of Maxime Marotte and Hugo Drechou - both chosen for the European Games - also secured top ten finishes.
