Today Pierra Menta ended with the expected victory of Kilian Jornet and Didier Blanc. In female category, Laetitia Roux and Mireia Miró won with probably the largest advantage over the second female team of all the history of Pierra Menta, over one hour!

Finally the sun came back to Areches, for this short and fast final statge of Pierra Menta: the first teams took only 1h16.

The victory of the stage was for William Bon Mardion and Martin Anthamatten (1h15'53), which unfortunately didn't take enough advantatge to the Italians Eydallin/Trento to get the third place. They finished 4th on the final rank for only 42 seconds. The today's second and third place were decided at the sprint, bewteen Jornet/Blanc and Ecoeur/Farve. Finally the timekeeper gave the same time to both teams: 1h16'16.

This was probably one of the shortest: "only" 8700m. But as well a very interesting race on the male category: 3 teams won a stage, and the podium was not clear until the end.

Very Impressive

I've been watching videoes from some of these ski mountaineering races on youtube. And your accomplishments are truly impressive. It must be an enormous physically challenge along with all the preparation of picking the right skis, goggles etc.
Great job - Keep up progressing the sport and I, for one, will definately try to keep up.

Preparation is key

In order to achieve such accomplishments preparation is key. It is truly impressive what you have done.
