Sardegna Tries X: Τhe signatures of Choban and Orrù on the spectacular Trail Running Race!

Από 02 Νοε 2021

The smiles of Oleksandr Choban and Elisabetta Orrù appeared in the 23 km race, and those of Gianluca Derosas and Valentina Langiu in the short distance, along with the spectacle of the sea and the beaches of Golfo Aranci. The first edition of Sardegna Tries X, the event organized by Sardegna X Sports, ended with the technical and scenic Trail Running race on Monday, November 1. The event opened last Saturday with the Regional Aquathlon Championship and continued on Sunday, October 31 with the International Triathlon Cross Country race.

After the epic battle on Sunday, under intense rain, the All Saints' Day was milder and tended to be dry, transforming the start and finish area in a party for adults and children and allowing athletes to enjoy spectacular views. A spot for the territory, as well as for the outdoor disciplines protagonists of this long weekend of sport and nature.

In the 23 km race, success went to Oleksandr Choban, Ukrainian by birth but Sardinian by adoption, member of the Pod. Amatori Olbia, after a solo escape, finished in one hour, 46 minutes and 18 seconds. Behind him, 2'25", his teammate Angelo Todde. On the absolute podium, together with them, was also Andres Gomory"I'm happy for the success, I tried to win without taking big risks. Fortunately, the course was smooth and well laid out. I congratulate those who took care of everything in detail: an example for those who want to organize trail races," said Choban


Among the women, Elisabetta Orrù, who had already volunteered on Sunday in the Triathlon Cross Country event, won: "It was a good experience, a bit hard, on a technical course. The view made me feel less tired"Elisabetta said. Second place for Marta Poretti, third place for Isabella Azzena.

Before them, the protagonists of the 13.5 km race crossed the finish line, won by Gianluca Derosas of G.S. Atl. Olbia ahead of Marco Passerò (Trail & Road Runners) and Andrea Sole (Atl. Valeria Decimomannu). "It's a path that we know very well" - explains Derosas, specialist of the 800 meters flat - and that in winter we face to prepare for track commitments. From a landscape point of view it's a beautiful area, when I could I ran looking at the sea to mitigate the fatigue."

In the women's Short Trail race, the winner was her teammate Valentina Langiu, 39 years old, who faced this route with her special friends, on all fours: "I'm a canicross specialist", she said, "with a lot of participation in the World Championships in the Italian jersey, and I usually face this trail with my dogs. The ground was good, I went downhill fast regardless and today a good performance arrived". On the podium were also Rosalba Miscali and Marilena Atzeni, second and third.


So the curtain falls on the Sardegna Tries X, which Sardegna X Sports organized with the contribution of the Tourism Department of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia and the City of Golfo Aranci"A three days of great satisfaction for our organizing group have closed - said the President of Sardegna X Sports Francesco Biggio. - 'We gave Golfo Aranci and this beautiful area of Sardinia three days of great sport. We have been rewarded by a beautiful welcome. This edition represents for us a starting point to create an event more and more ambitious and of international prestige. I would like to thank the Tourism Department of the Region of Sardinia, the Municipality of Golfo Aranci, the staff and all the people who contributed to the success of the event".

Winning the International Triathlon Cross Country race on Sunday 31 October were the Frenchmen François Carloni (Team Nissa Triathlon) and Morgane Riou (Issy Triathlon), while on Saturday the Regional Aquathlon Championships rewarded the performances of Riccardo Spanu and Maria Elena Mura.
