KUOTACYCLE SILVER MEDAL MTB ORIENTEERING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
LIBEREC (REP. CECA): Silver medal for Luca Dallavalle (Italy) at World Orienteering Mountain Bike Championship. Just as they did in the European MTBO Championships, Gaelle Barlet, France and Anton Foliforov, Russia took the gold medals in the WMTBOC Middle Distance race held today at Liberec in the Czech Republic.
Luca Dallavalle, Italy, only 5 seconds slower than Anton Foliforov (Russia). Dallavalle had led for most of the race but crucially lost more than 30 seconds on the very final short leg to the last control on the 11.4 km course. Marek Pospisek on home ground took the bronze, 1-04 down on Foliforov’s time.
