Bonne At Ironbike In Ischgl On 6th Place
In autumn conditions the nearly 1,000 starter were sent on the race track at 8:30 a.m. On the long track of 78 km there had to be mastered about 4,000 height meters. After a relatively neat initial lap of only 750 vertical metres they had to move up to the Greitspitze (2872 m). Here there were 1,500 vertical metres to be managed in one go and the the ascend was partly above 25 per cent. After nearly 2,5 h riding time Bonne reached among others the highest point. At the descent to Samnaun (Swiss) he could gain a better position. In the end there was waiting the long feared last ascend from Samnaun to the Palinkopf (2864 m). After a total time of 5:17 h Bonne reached the finishing line and took 6th place in the master's ranking. Winner of the race was the Italian Mauro Bettin.
