The traditional technical support to the world toughest endurance trail and a team of “giants” partly renewed, ready to run and give their best. It is with these premises that Ferrino is about to take part in this edition of Tor des Géants®, consolidating a collaboration started since the event birth. Many are the news of this edition, starting from the team’s athletes who will travel 330 km with 24.000 m of difference in altitude in the presence of the giants of the Alps: Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa, Cervino and Gran Paradiso.
AN ALWAYS MORE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN TEAM
Among the athletes of Ferrino Women Team ready to face the brutal and fascinating Aosta Valley path, there will be two new entries: Noelia Herrera from Barcelona and Sonia Sanchez Rodriguez from Girona. Following a dream, Noelia and Sonia participated in the competition organized by Ferrino Iberia and after a careful selection, they won the two prestigious bibs. They will then come to Courmayeur with all the credentials needed to shine their light in the firmament of over 800 participants and run alongside the qualify trio of athletes present in the previous edition: Luisa Balsamo, Scilla Tonetti and Alice Modignani Fasoli. Also confirmed the presence of Cristian Caselli, ready for a new adventure on the trails of Valle d’Aosta.
