On the men’s side, it was a battle between the two greatest racers of all time. Nino Schurter and Jaroslav Kulhavy would duke it out until the final climb, when Schurter made a move. He’d cross the finish line with a seven second lead. The win marks the completion of a perfect season for Schurter, who won all six World Cup races. Watch the action unfold in the video above.
