The consistently successful duo Eydallin – Lenzi does it yet again and wins the Tour de France of ski mountaineering once more. In the women’s category, as predicted, Laetitia Roux and Mireia Mirò return to the top step of the podium. But first things first. The French win the Grand Mont stage, while overall success goes to the Italians.   With three first places and a silver in the final race, the consolidated partnership of Lenzi & Eydallin proves once again to be the strongest team.  On the most crucial day of the race, with 10,000 spectators massed at the top of the Grand Mont, “local-boys” Gachet - Bon Mardion crossed the line at La Planay in 2h27'10".  Finishing hot on their heels and to enthusiastic applause were Lenzi – Eydallin in 2h28'17". Third in both the final stage and overall classification, a third place which is the equivalent of a first class degree in the university of ski mountaineering, were Michele Boscacci - Robert Antonioli from Valtellina.
 In the women’s race the queens of the Pierra decided not to take any unnecessary risks and conceded the second leg of this 20115 edition to their closest rivals Axelle Mollaret - Emelie Forsberg. In the overall classification Laetitia Roux – Mireia Mirò emerge as the winners of the first contest in the Grande Course. 2° place went to the day’s winners, Axelle Mollaret – Emelie Forsberg, a new duo but clearly with great potential. The Swiss pair, Séverine Pont Combe and Jennifer Fiechter, took third place, while fourth place went to Martina Valmassoi and Katia Tomatis.              
The sky above Areches is tinged with azure, thanks to the victory of the Italian duo Alba De Silvestro - Giulia Compagnoni in the Junior category.  The French pair Adèle Milloz - Sophie Mollard were second while third place went to another French duo, Léna Bonnel - Manon Gaydon. In the young men’s category, it was a replay of Friday with the French team Samuel Equy - Swann Juillaguet who got the better of the Swiss Micha Steiner and Rémi Bonnet. Third place was taken by the other Swiss team with Arnaud Gasser and Thomas Corthay. In the Cadet category, after our Giulia Murada was forced to pull out due to injury, success went to local athletes Fanny Meynet Cordonnier - Marie Pollet-Villard. Melenie Ploner - Giorgia Felicetti took second place, while third place went to the Belgian Coralie Drion with Swiss-born Florence Buchs.  In the male Cadet category the Swiss pair Julien Ançay and Arno Lietha won a surprise victory over  the French team of Arthur Blanc and Quetin Dulac. Third place went to Marco Cunaccia and Marco Daniele.
