The winner in the equally fascinating 15-kilometre version of the race was the Matteo Tanel (ITA) with a time of 37.50,6 beating Riccardo Mich (ITA) and Florian Cappello (ITA).
The first woman to complete the race was Michaela Patscheider the followed by Agata Marchi and Caterina Piller.
“We are extremely satisfied with this edition of the race because it proves that we have won the hearts of cross-country skiers– was the comment of Martina Rier, one of the organisers of the South Tyrol Moonlight Classic – it has an original formula which is popular with enthusiasts who can choose between the shorter 15-kilometre version and the technically more demanding 30 kilometre version”.
And so ends the 14th edition of the South Tyrol Moonlight Classic, but the organisers in Alpe di Siusi would also like to to remind everyone that Sunday 5 July is the date of the Half-Marathon, which takes place on Europe’s largest alpine pasture: this is for cross-country skiers who will complete the running competition with a ranking that combines two races.
