Mamu and Mayr triumphed in the 3. stage of W. Cup 2016 at Telfes. - 31 July 2016
gp32016winners.jpgPetro Mamu (ERI) and Andrea Mayr (AUT) are the clear winners of the third stage of the World Mountain Running Cup 2016 in Telfes-Stubaitall-Austria.
After some nice sunny days in Stubai Valley it stared to rain right an hour before almost 200 runners from 11 countries gathered on the start line in Telfes. 
Light rain did not spoil the atmosphere; the runners don’t like hot sunny weather. 
Luckily it stopped raining just before the race started and only the wet, slippery ground remained. 
Runners enjoyed the 11,5 km long course with almost 1300m elevation gain. 
Only on the way back to the valley they found energy to admire all the beauties of this unique landscape.
