Silverback Ambassador, Kristina Koscova from Czech Republic received her second medal at the UCI Masters Mountain Bike World Championships. The event took place in Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada this past weekend.
Over 600 athletes competed across downhill and Mountain Bike cross-country events, with ages ranging from 30 well into the ’70s.
Koscova went shoulder to shoulder with the elite women crowd of international riders. Last year she received a gold medal at the 2018 UCI Masters Mountain bike Champs event.
“The fight is finally over. It was an exciting race until the last few meters. Unfortunately, I flatted my front wheel in the last lap and managed to “only” finish second place,” she said after a great event.
Koscova was close to capturing the title in women’s race. She finished in the silver medal position behind Alana Heise from Canada in the women’s 45-49 race.
She showed that age is nothing but a number at the 2019 UCI Masters Mountain Bike World Championships.

“The routes have been tough but fun and we have enjoyed all the single tracks and the awesome views from the top of the mountains. The riding here is very different to both Sweden and South Africa, we are getting used to it now, so it is sad it is almost over,” said Jennie After Stage 4.
