elete powered Mountain Biker Sally Bigham has won the Riva del Garda Marathon in Italy. She said "It's a huge bike festival. It was a win that I was really looking for because I finished 3rd there in 2009 and 2nd in 2011. It's a tough course covering 105km with 3500 metres of vertical climbing and after 5 hours and 6 minutes I took the victory. The mountain views are spectacular and the climbs are steep. I like it a lot :) I'm now preparing for the Alpen Tour which is a 4 day stage race in Schladming, Austria at the end of May."
