Report 3° giorno
15 riders… ed un vulcano!

Niente connessione internet dal vulcano, quindi lo “Sven Martin’s Photo journal” sarà ripreso domani…

Mercoledì 9 Febbraio:dopo una prima notte nella caldera di Fogo, i riders sono saltati in sella per una giornata di training e per abituarsi al terreno. Prime cadute, prime paure: non sarà facile avere a che fare con questo fondo…

In generale il morale è alto, il paesaggio è stupendo. Verso le 10 del mattino, la foschia si è diradata ed il sole è puntualmente arrivato.

Il nostro campo base nel cratere è una locanda scavata nella lava in mezzo ai vigneti che crescono sulla caldera… si, dovete sapere che qui producono “vino vulcanico”.

Durante la serata è stata stabilito l’ordine di partenze di giovedì (oggi, ndr):

1 -Anka Martin (Santa Cruz – Sram) – RSO/USA

2 – Mark Weir (WTB – Fox Racing Shox) – USA

3 – Samuel Normand (Lol Racing – Yeti) – France (non-pro)

4 – Greg Doucende (Performance Parts – Trek) – France

5 – Nicolas Vouilloz (Lapierre) – France

6 – Rowan Sorrell (Orange – Mojo) – Wales/UK

7 – Hans Rey (GT Bicycles – Adidas) – USA

8 – Marco Nicoletti (Niner) – Italy

9 – Dorothea Lindtke (Rocky Mountain – Brake Authority) – Germany (non-pro)

10 – Tracy Moseley (Trek World Racing – Osprey) – UK

11 – Sabrina Jonnier (Groupama – Punch Power) – France

12 – Jérôme Clementz (Cannondale – Mavic) – France

13 – René Wildhaber (Trek – Dakine) – Switzerland

14 – Sam Peridy (Scott) – France

15 – Fabien Barel (Mondraker) – France

Giovedì 10 Febbraio: bella atmosfera durante la colazione, ma i riders ono già concentrati… allo 8.00 ora locale partiranno con le loro bici per salire lungo le ripidissime pendici del vulcano, salendo da 1800m a 2800, sulla cima.

Si prevedono da 2 a 3 ore di salita prima che possa cominciare la prima gara, che li porterà vicini al mare con una sezione sulla lava, poi una sezione su una strada per passare attraverso un villaggio e poi un tuffo finale nella giungla, lungo un singletrack! I risultati arriveranno a breve.
