The Skyrunning World Series and the Qatar Road World Championships reunite our partner athletes, who, geared in their most efficient compression clothing, performed to their best.
Flirting with the skies in Limone…
… were the best of trail runners who braved the 27km extreme skyrace and 2450 meters of vertical climbing to reach Limone. Flu-stricken Tadei Pivk, having already secured his overall win of the competition, forfeited his claim to a brilliant finish. French Alexis Sevennec, asked for no more and could trust his compression apparel, specially the PRS special trail, to finish 1st in the men`s league. On the podium, for the overall win, Pivk and Nikolov grasped the 1st and 3rd steps, while Spanish Hassan Ait Chaou stood just between them.
And when Vertical becomes Extreme… Philip Götsch and Christel Dewalle claimed their crowns as winners of the vertical climb while Alexis Sevennec and William Bon Mardion, finished 14th and 34th respectively.
In Doha, all was extreme
The heat, the race, the desert…For the 89th edition of the Road World Championships, in the flat desert of heated Qatar, Slovak Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), could thank his Full Socks V2.1 as he sprinted to the finish line, a bike length ahead of Britain`s Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data). Tom Boonen (Etixx-Qucikstep) from Belgium completed the podium.
To complete the good series… Compressport`s partner Frederik Van Lierde did it again, in Lanzarote where he won the Olympic distance triathlon while Michael Wardian finished 3rd at the Baltimore Marathon.
