Damiano Lenzi and Laetitia Roux Individual Ski Mountaineering World Champions

di

On the first day of the Ski Mountaineering World Championships 2017 at Alpago - Piancavallo, Italy’s Damiano Lenzi and France’s Laetitia Roux were crowned Individual world champions. Silver went to Kilian Jornet Burgada from Spain and Maude Mathys from Switzerland, while bronze went to Anton Palzer from Germany and Axelle Mollaret from France.

Although fog and rain failed to ruin the world championship debut, the foil weather forced the Transcavallo organising committee to work overtime. The men led by Diego Svalduz managed to create a technical and spectacular race starting and finishing at the entrance to Val Salatis. The best for the next two seasons had to tackle four ascents and descents, and deal with 1,670m vertical gain in the men’s competition and
1,500m in the women’s race.

The mountains that mark the border between Veneto and Friuli literally exalted Damiano Lenzi’s capabilities, and right from the outset the athlete from Piedmont took the lead. Only Catalonia’s Kilian Jornet Burgada managed to keep up and prove threatening, and their duel was resolved during the last descent when Lenzi edged forward to cross the finishing line after 1:52:10. Jornet took silver with the smallest of margins, 1:52:11, while bronze went to Germanys Anton Palzer 1:52:44. They were followed by Matteo Eydallin, Robert Antonioli, Xavier Gachet, William Bon Mardion, Marti Werner, Valentin Favre and Jakob Hermann. Espoir gold went to Nicolini, ahead of Oriol cardona and Remì Bonnet.

In the women’s race Laetitia Roux raced as hard as expected and won the world championship in 2:03:06. Switzerland's Mathys Maude crossed the finishing line after 2:04:53 to win silver, while Roux’s teammate Axelle Mollaret took bronze after 2:06:42. The were followed by Emelie Forsberg, Jennifer Fiechter, Mireia Mirò, Galicia Cortina, Alba De Silvestro, Martina Valmassoi and Severine Pont Combe. In addition to placing in the top ten, De Silvestro won the espoir category ahead of Giulia Compagnoni and Johanna Erhart.

The World Championships continue tomorrow with the Individual youth categories (cadets and juniors), while the teams will race on Sunday. After the rest day, the competitions move from Alpago to Piancavallo for the Sprint Race on Tuesday, the Vertical race on Wednesday and the spectacular Relay grand finale on Thursday.
