Zinal - 17 juillet 2021
The Rock The Besso 2021, the first round of the Enduro Helveti'cup and EWS Gold Qualifer took place under a radiant sun, in Zinal (Valais, Switzerland). But the bad weather of the last weeks made the special stages more than epic! For safety reasons, the first stage was shortened and the #5 stage was cancelled. However, the brake discs of the riders had time to warm up with -4'600m of negative difference in altitude :-)
In the women's category, the fight between Sidonie Jolidon and the professional skier Camille Rast was very close with a difference of 2'' on a total time of 32'.
The juniors also had an incredible race with 3 youngsters in the first 10 of the scratch race.
In the men's category, EWS regulars Gustav Wildhaber and Patrick Lüthi were on the podium. A podium completed in a beautiful way by the Valaisan Mehdi Lorenz.
The party that followed was beautiful and the best reward for the 200 pilots present in Zinal!
We look forward to next year!
