Tor des Géants: leg 7

The finish of the Tor is in Courmayeur, back where it all started. Runners have covered there 48 km with 2880 D+ since leaving Ollomont and 330km with 24000 D+ since leaving Courmayeur. And we have intermediate times in Saint Rhemy and Bonatti.
Let’s see what we can learn from this first stage. What are the fastest times this far?

Blame it on Isa that I am not in this list. And there is someone that likes hammering that downhill.

Saint Rhemy


Only two people did not become finishers after passing Bonatti (Marco Gazzola and Stéphane Couleaud).

The strange shape in 2012 is because the race was stopped in Saint-Rhemy due to bad weather after the first runners passed.



Some plots to help you predict how long it will take to get to the next aid station with timing.

I am sure that you can deduce a reasonable estimate from that.
