Engdahl and L’hirondel Smash Course Information – iRunFar

This week is so enjoyable. There’s extremely aggressive racing ever day within the lead up towards UTMB. On Friday, August 26, the 2022 CCC race took off from Courmayeur, Italy, via Champex-Lac, Switzerland, and to Chamonix, France. The course totaled 6,100 meters (20,000 ft) of elevation achieve throughout 101 kilometers (63 miles), all whereas going the other way from the earlier-in-the-week TDS race.

2022 CCC Males’s Race

The early a part of the race was in heavy rain, however that did nothing to gradual Petter Engdahl (Sweden, lives in Norway). He was at or close to the entrance from the beginning, and stored that successful tempo up the remainder of the best way. It was a dominant win in 9:53, the race’s first sub-10 hour end on this model of the course.

Thibaut Garrivier (France) held the prior course file at 10:23 from 2021. As for race winner Engdahl, this was the 28-year-old’s longest race but, although he was third finally 12 months’s OCC.

2021 OCC winner Jonathan Albon (U.Ok., lives in Norway) was maybe the pre-race favourite, even with the added distance. However as an alternative of chasing down Engdahl, he needed to maintain off third-place Andreas Reiterer (Italy). Albon completed second in 10:16 and bowed to the race winner on the end, and Reiterer was third in 10:23. Reiterer was fourth right here a 12 months in the past in a slower race.

Like males’s winner Engdahl, Blandine L’hirondel (France) was out entrance for everything of the race too. Final 12 months’s OCC winner and course file holder, L’hirondel slayed this one in 11:40, and that too was a brand new course file. At 31 years outdated, L’hirondel was lately fourth on the Golden Path World Collection race in Norway. Miao Yao (China) ran 11:57 in 2018 to set the earlier course file.

This one was actually shut. Sunmaya Budha (Nepal) made up time on L’hirondel via the second half of the race and completed an oh-so shut second place in 11:45.
