Reusser wins bronze in time trials at Road World Championships in Australia

Bernerin is the strongest in the World Cup time trial

Reusser after World Cup bronze: “It works!”

Marlen Reusser (30) expands her medal collection in major events. It’s not gold, but he can be happy with this bronze medal at the World Championships.


Bronze for Bernese cyclist Marlon Reusser at the Road World Championships in Australia.

It is not gold. Not even silver, as is often the case. Bronze this time! Marlon Reusser (30) raced to third place in the Wollongong World Cup time trial. He lost 34.2 kilometers by 41 seconds to European champion Ellen van Dijk of Holland, who successfully defended her title. Second was local hero Grace Brown from Australia (+29 seconds).

“I’m definitely not in the best shape, so I’m really happy. It’s an ultra-cool time trial,” Reusser said. The past few months have not been easy, he explains. “I didn’t have an organized plan, there were always problems and I had to find compromises.” Background: Reuser injured his wrist in a fall, contracted the coronavirus and recently suffered a concussion. Too many problems – probably too many for a world title.
