With wins and podium results in Cyprus and Switzerland, Giger has started the 2012 season strong.

Giger Podiums at Swiss Cup Opener!

April 2, 2012

The Swiss Cup cross-country mountain bike series kicked off under sunny skies in Buch over the weekend, and Rabobank-Giant rider Fabian Giger had a strong podium performance.

Giger, who is off to a fast start in 2012, finished third behind Swiss rivals Nino Schurter and Florian Vogel. He was back in Europe on home turf, after riding to a team-best 12th place at the opening World Cup race in South Africa two weeks ago.

Giger battled teammates Schurter and Vogel, eventually finishing third, just 37 seconds back, on his Giant XtC Composite 29er. The Swiss Cup will resume next month, with round 2 on April 21-22.
