One hundred in the beginning
From the very beginning there was a great day with a hundred competing athletes and about fifty interested in non-competitive walking, and a decent audience on the course and in the finish area. One day dedicated to the great passion for mountain racing, Karen Gianola’s Evergreen Educational Farm was its nerve center and main sponsor.
The first to set out were the two-time race course riders in the Pheido and Pitalon areas, with a positive difference of 9.7 km and an altitude of 597 m. Soon a quartet formed by Malenko genius Matteo Bardia (AS Lansada), Red Devils captain Marco Leoni, teammate Diego Rossi and athletics master Pidagia Simone Parade. In the second lap alone, Bartia expert Leonik is 10 ”ahead of Rossi, who went down the hill in Python’s GPM. Leonie Turbo in Downhill raised her hands to the finish – the third time in the competition – after 43’47 “9 ahead of Diego Rossi”. Simon Parade (Attlee Pidagia 1528), Tomaso Caneva (GP Thalamona 45’09 “) and Jr. Matteo Bardia (AS Lansada 45’09”) finished in the top five at the lowest point of the podium at 44’30 From the top ten are David Curioni (GP Valcia 6 °), Federico Pedrini (Dani Carret Briansa 7 °), Roberto Pedronselli (GP Santi 8 °), Fabricio Fassendini (GP Santi 9 °), Remo 10 °).
“I started to cover up a bit, because initially my legs weren’t great – the announcement of the winner Marco Leoni – and then in the first descent I separated the slightly abandoned Matteo (Bardia), but Diego (Rosie) was awake. In the final descent I started to withdraw from my team and I won through a small gap ”.
Christina Molteni (also known as GP Walchia), a very strong middle distance runner in the 5.7 km women’s race, has returned from a beautiful season on the track and is showing many skills and technical skills even on a course that can be run. Aerobic One wins 29’06 “best time” with a 1’21 break, giving the mighty skiller Samantha Bertolina (Atl. Alta Valtelina) a 1’21 break. Francesca Colombo (Atl. Leco Colombo Costrussioni 33’46 “) completes the stage, with Sarah Asparini (GS CSI Morbegno 34’16”) and Elena Rusconi (CS Cortenova 34’38 “) in the top five.
“After a lot of tracks, I thought about going back to a mountain running race, a discipline I really like – the post-race announcement of the winner, Christina Molteni – I had no particular preparation for a race like this, but the nature of the ups and downs allowed me (Bertolina) to impose my own speed. I loved running and the course was really nice. “
