MOC Day 2 – WRE: Victory for Gueorgiou

– There are not many such technical terrains in the world, Thierry Gueorgiou said after finishing his first World Ranking Event this year. After a, for him, slow start in the sprint yesterday, he was at his best today – beating his team mate in the French National Team, Francois Gonon, with 1 and a half minute. Third was Norwegian National Team runner Øystein Kvaal Østerbø. In the womens class, Norwegian National Team runner Marianne Riddervold took the victory, less than a minute before Swedish Lina Sundqvist and Mhairi Mackenzie of Great Britain.
