In 418 started for TOR130 – Tot Dret. At TOR X Bosatelli flies to his last night

Tue, 10/09/2019 - 23:21 -- motta.erica

In 418 started, at 9 p.m. from the Gressoney Sports Hall, in Gressoney-Saint-Jean, for TOR130 – Tot Dret, the 130 km and 12.000 m D+ race that reached, this year, its third edition, third and penultimate competition of TOR X.
The athletes will run the last part of the route of TOR within a 44-hour time span, but the arrival of the winners is expected between 8 and 9 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday 11: the record belongs to Marco Mangaretto who, last year, nearly ran under the 24 hours (24h01’07”), while the first edition was won by Cesare Clap. The women hall of fame sees the name of Francesca Pretto and Giuditta Turini.
There will only be one life base, in Oyace (71,80 km), and one time-barriers, apart from Courmayeur: Valtournenche, Oyace, Ollomont and Bosses.
Different athletes will run for victory: among them, Spanish Julio Cernuda Aldecoa, 48th at TOR 2016, Aosta Valley Giuliano Cavallo and Marco Bethaz, but also Gianfranco Saitta or Dino Melzani. For the women, a chance to get a prestige result is high for Marina Cugnetto and Antonella Manzoli.

Bosatelli flies to his last night

Tor des Géants® is entering its crucial phase with the last breathtaking 60 km. It was supposed to be a head to head between Oliviero Bosatelli and Galen Reynolds, only one hour distant in Valtournenche. The turning point at Rifugio Magià, where both Reynolds and Romain Olivier stopped for a long time for physical problems, compromising their chances of victory. Bosatelli flies to his last night of race, which should lead him in Courmayeur before lunch. Behind them, more detached, Danilo Lantermino, who in the morning overcame both Sebastien Raichon and Gianluca Galeati.
Still undisputed the leadership of Silvia Trigueros Garrote, in ninth position overall, more than two hours ahead Jocelyne Pauly and more than the double ahead Sonia Furtado.

Tor des Glaciers, the leaders lengthen the advantage
Luca Papi
has overlooked for a long time the Cervino from Plan Maison, 2.556 m, at km 333, to climb to Rifugio Duca Degli Abruzzi and descend to Fienstra di Cignana and climbing again to Rifugio Perucca Vuillermoz, accomplishing 20 more km. Marina Plavan watches Monte Rosa from Gressoney. They both lead largely.
