Olympic champion Nino Schurter sealed a perfect International Cycling Union (UCI) Mountain Bike World Cup Finals in Val di Sole today.

He triumphed in the men's cross country race today to claim a sixth successive victory from six starts.

The Swiss star was pushed by French duo Julien Absalon and Stephane Tempier before accelerating away on the final ascent.

He eventually crossed four seconds clear in 1 hour 24min 30sec.

The 31-year-old is now due to chase a sixth world title next month in Cairns.

Tempier finished second today, while two-time Olympic champion Absalon settled for third after losing contact in the closing stages.

He finished 47 seconds behind the winner.

Jolanda Neff made it a Swiss double by winning the women's race by 21 seconds in 1:26:58.

It marked her ninth World Cup victory but the first since her return following shoulder and hip injuries earlier this season.

Ukrainian Yana Belomoina finished second.

Poland's Maja Wloszczowska was a distant third in 1:28:07.
