Alban Lakata

There is a good reason why the three-time MTB Marathon World Champion is called the “Albanator“. With his immense muscular endurance, he produces a racing effort that leaves most people uttering the term “immortal“.

Three-time Marathon World Champion, four-time silver medalist at the Marathon World Championships, and two-time European Marathon Champion are only a few of the top results which top Alban‘s impressive race resume. Alban‘s strength and talent shines most in marathon distance events. When his competition starts to run out of breath, Alban is just getting warmed up.

“I‘m the competitive type who always tries to figure out: How good am I? How good can I become?“ says the Austrian.

As a member of Topeak-Ergon Racing Team since 2009, Alban brings his Austrian charm and a great deal of horsepower to the sport. The Dolomites serve as the daily training grounds for Alban, with long and strenuous climbs right out the front door. “No matter if it’s equipment, fitness, or diet, I try to push the limit and reach to be the absolute best.“
