Presti Hawks to Nip Gicquel at the Line!

Massimiliano Presti triumphs at the Marathon around the Zugersee (40 km) in the Sprint in 59.36,57. Arnaud Gicquel (far left) takes 2nd just 1/100 of a second back, with Mikael Lannezval 3rd (center, white uniform).

Stage 7 of the Swiss Inline Cup set a new event participant record of 3,910 skaters around the beautiful lake at Zug.  Massimiliano Presti (world ranking #2) got his second SIC stage win. Angle Vaudan, the number 1 in France in the Sprint and in 59,36 minutes, earned her 4th win in the series. The Swiss skaters represented well on their home turf: Marc Christen, Pia Knecht, Franziska Stampfli, Reto Felder and Nicolas Iten all placed highly in the finishing sprints.

The Swiss Inline Cup goes now to the middle of August into the summer break, starting from 26 July to make room for the European championships in Padova, Italy.
