Member of the Team Rossignol, the French racer Pierre Guédon has won the Engadin Skimarathon. More than 11.000 people were at the start of this mythic race. He ends first ahead of Cristian Zorzi and Christophe Perillat-Collomb.
"I never expected that I could win today. It's my second marathon race and my first Engadin Skimarathon so I am still pretty unexperienced when it comes to long distance racing. But the race was very fast today and when I start in a race I also want to win or get onto the podium at least. So I tried to go with the fastest ones. I got told that you have to be one of the five first skiers when you come to the last 500m and I placed myself in that way right before the finish. In the end I could play the card of a sprinter and get these precious centimetres in front of the second one. I am really really happy. The Engadin is a great place for skiing and I really enjoyed racing here."
Two others skiers of Team Rossignol have participated to the race and end in the Top 10 with Robin Duvillard, 7th et Benoit Chauvet 9th.
