Last day arrives for Trans Alpers

Today (Saturday) is the party day for those involved in the Trans Alpine Run, as with the overall and category prizes pretty much settled, the main protagonists just need to keep their form through to the stage 8 finish at Latsch in the Italian Alps…

Cameron Clayton and Dimitris Theodorakakos once again didn’t put a foot wrong as they won stage 7. It would take a mamouth effort from another team to deny them the 8th stage today. On the ladies side there has been no stopping the Italian / Spanish pairing of Silvia Serafini and Oihana Kortazar, they too have been utterly dominant across the week.

Finally, hats off to Scottish pairing of Andy Fallas and Helen Bonsor in the mixed section, again they just to need to finish safely later today, such is the size of their lead.

Results are here.

And you can feast your eyes on these amazing images courtesy of the dynamic photo trio of Klaus Fengler, Kelvin Trautman and Lars Schneider over on the Salomon Deutschland Fb page.

    You haven’t mentioned Merillas and Villa yet, probably because nobody’s heard of them. These 2 young lads finished second overall, promoting one of our local races (Alto Sil). You’ll be hearing more of them in the future …..
