The enormous advantage accumulated along the 330 kilometers that from Courmayeur, from where he left on Sunday morning at 10, brought him back to the foot of Mont Blanc, allowed him to better manage not only the great effort but also the rain, during the last night: Jonas Russi, therefore, is the new king of TOR330 - Tor des Géants®. The Swiss arrived in Courmayeur at 8.31 after 70 hours 31 minutes and 36 seconds. Russi was speechless - both because of the fatigue (he slept only 17 minutes) and the emotions for his undertaking. A desired undertaking, sought after, after the bitterness of last year when, on his debut, he abdicated after the Champillon Refuge, giving way to Franco Collé, to whom he had stood up to there and with whom he had won the SwissPeaks 360 in 2020. This year the italian already retired on the first evening, then slowly all his other direct opponents, and so Russi started alone without wanting to save his energies. His advantage over his pursuers increased to over five hours, but he did not want to make any calculations despite the fact that at the eve he had some doubts about his physical condition and was undecided whether to participate in the toughest endurance trail in the world. Russi, born in 1985, two weeks before the start of the TOR had run the 170 kilometers of the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc in an excellent manner, finishing in eighth position, as well as having obtained a sixth place at the Lavaredo Ultra Trail at the end of June.
