The dirt van rolled back into HQ at 05.00am this morning after the long haul from Alpe D’Huez, with three empty bags of mint imperials and eight cans of pringles (road food is great, innit?), i trashed the camera after a stack on the rocks, so no photos, but heres the final results;
1st Rene Wildhaber 48.39
2nd Tomas Misser 49.17
3rd Greg Doucende 49.33
Top Brits were Iain COOKSON in 21st, Chris Ball 26th and Phil Shucksmith 28th
Dirt rider Rob Breakwell had a good start, but all that lying on his ass for six weeks shot his fitness levels, and slipped back to 35th
Vouilloz clawed his way up to a top ten midway with some kamikaze moves, before disappearing from the radar.
