It does it in the Italian classic where the Jornet – De Gasperi duel in 2013 left an even historical record and it does so in the classic alpine race. Stian Argenund and Maude Mathys added 2 victories in the first two races, by winning in Olla de Núria in the Pyrenees, and in Marathon Mont Blanc .The absence of Maude leaves Stian as male favorite, with Judith Wyder in the women’s, defending gold and record achieved here in 2019.
DOLOMYTHS RUN 2021
GOLDEN TRAIL WORLD SERIES 3RD STAGE
With barely time to sit back and recover from the Marathon du Mont-Blanc just two weeks ago, the French giant’s corporate circuit is already preparing for the third stage in Canazei, in the heart of the Italian Dolomites. It will be next Sunday 18JUL from 8.30AM.
DOLOMYTHS RUN, TRACK. (22K | 1.700M+)
Canazei, at an altitude of 1,450m in the heart of the spectacular Italian Dolomites, is the start and finish of this 3rd stage race. 22km may not seem intimidating but add 1,700m vertical elevation to the first 10km right out of the starting block taking you up through the dizzy rocky and scree-ridden climb up Pordoi’s Corridor to Hell to reach Piz Boè’s summit at 3,152m, take in the spectacular arial views, and then plummet over the other side into a 12km descent in the treacherous loose scree and rocky valley that eases out into a glorious wooded single-track to guide you back to the finish line in Canazei. Fierce, steep, short, fast, and treacherous – this race is NOT for the faint hearted.
Men’s record: 02:00:11 Kilian Jornet 2013
Women’s record: 02:18:51 Judith Wyder 2019
DOLOMYTHS RUN: THE GOLDEN TRAIL WORLD SERIES.
The second stage of the Golden Trail World Series at the Marathon du Mont-Blanc saw a rumble in the jungle in the men’s race, with a stacked field fighting for the leader’s position in the first part of the race, the Norwegian Stian Angermund (Team Salomon, Norway) pushed his prowess up through the pack and into the lead to take the win with Viking force 2 minutes ahead of the 2019 winner Italian Davide Magnini (Team Salomon, Italy), and Bart Przedwojewski (Team Salomon, Poland) grabbed the third place podium through his sheer grit.
The women’s race saw a flash of lightening known as the Swiss Maude Mathys (Team Salomon, Switzerland) fire off the start line, never to be seen again by her pursuers and finishing 9 minutes ahead of Anaïs Sabrié (Team Matryx, France) who stayed focused and constant throughout to take the second podium spot, and Blandine L’Hirondel (Team Hoka One One, France) taking an incredible third place after suffering a sprained ankle, almost quitting, and digging deep to fight for the sport she loves. The women’s top ten group behind was a nail-biting dance jostling for positions!
