13/03: Pierramenta day 3: Roux - Miró, the queens of Grand Mont (FR)

Mireia Miró - Laetitia Roux: on the last changeMireia Miró - Laetitia Roux: on the last changeFinally a victory for the international female team! Mireia Miró and Laetitia Roux had both an excellent day and could take 3’53 to the Italians, probably not enough to win Pierramenta, but at last a good feeling for them.
In men’s category, Jornet-Troillet won again, follwed by Holzknecht-Lenzi. The third place was for the French Perrier-Bon Mardion, so they consolidate their 2nd place on the general Rank.

Blue sky and freezing temperatures (-6º at the start). The public was trembling at the top of the Grand Mont, but the spectacle was, as usual, impressive.

Kilian Jornet and Florent Troillet learned from yesterday’s mistake and didn’t give any change to the other teams to beat them. They dominated today’s race from the beginning until the end, getting and advantage of 2’46 on the Italians Lenzi-Holzknecht. Bon Mardion-Perrier arrived only 28 seconds behind, and the 4th place was for Reichegger-Brunod, which get back to the 3rd pace on the general rank. Ecoeur-Anthamatten (5th) lost today almost 8 minutes to the leaders and go back to the 5th position in the general rank.

“The first day I collapsed, the second day Laetitia didn’t feel well, but today we both felt great. It’s almost impossible to win Pierramenta, but at least we have a good victory today” said Mireia Miró at the arrival line. The French-Spanish team get the revenge and won the Grant Mont. The total difference to the Italians went down from 8minutes to 4 minutes, but probably not enough to beat the Italians tomorrow on the general rank.
