VITTORIA CON RECORD PER KILIAN JORNET IN AUSTRALIA

Il campione catalano del Team Salomon International vince la prima gara della stagione di Trail Runnnig con il tempo di 9h19'. Il precedente primato cronometrico del percorso era di 9h53'...

Il Nord Face100k ha uno sviluppo di 100km con 5000m di dislivello: " Ho corso con François d'Haene per gran parte della gara e ciò mi ha aiutato a superare la parte più dura; soprattuttutto quella dopo il 50° km".

Ennesima grande performance, dunque, per la stella del Team Salomon International che, non solo ha vinto, ma ha pure polverizzato il precedente migliore crono della gara (9h53') fermando l'orologio sul tempo di 9h19'. Performance sensazionale se si pensa che quella australiana era la sua prima uscita a soli 15 giorni dall'ultimo successo scialpinistico: il Trofeo Mezzalama.

Archiviato questo prima trasferta da record, ora nel mirino di Kilian Jornet vi è il Red Bull Eléments a Chamonix (21Maggio) e la Maratona di Zegama il 29.
