MARCO DE GASPERI WINS OROBIE SKYRAID
18 July 2011
Last weekend the Orobie Skyraid trail running event took place in the Orobie region in Italy. Due to very bad weather conditions the organisation comittee had to opt for «plan B» and change the trail. Despite the change, SCOTT athlete and 6-time world champion Marco de Gasperi lived up to the expectations and took home the win after being in the lead from start to finish.
