Saab Salomon Mountain Race Day 3

A less aerobic day for the teams as they explored the vertical rock of the Savoie Mont Blanc region. The field was split into two groups; one engaging in a vertical descent down the Magland Canyon while the other raced up the Col de la Colombiere cliff faces. It was to be a day mixing canyoning, via ferrata and climbing, but of course no MountainX Race day would be complete without a 13km trail run! More progress for the Alpkit team moving into 24th and within just one place of Team Inov-8, great news considering their relative inexperience on this kind of terrain.
