Saab Salomon Mountain Race Day 2

Day 2 of the Saab Salomon took our intrepid team off their feet and onto the saddle. The first MTB stage involved nearly 2000m of elevation gain over 46km through the scenic hills surrounding Beaufort, but it is unlikely the guys will have had much time to take in the views. The teams stayed on their bikes for the next stage, a 32km ride over the Col des Aravis from Flumet to Thones which also hosted the 10km evening trail run. It was a good day for Matt, Phil and Oli who had moved up to 26 overall by the end of the day.
