Sylvester 5days: final stage

The final stage of the Sylvester 5-days took place in Ravels. The race was organised in the same forest as yesterday, but this time the south part of the map was used. The runnability was better than yesterday and most participants enjoyed it more.

In class H21E Christoph Brandt showed again why he won the overall ranking by also winning the last stage. While his opponents got more tired day by day, he kept his best performance for the last stage. He almost made no mistakes and also his runningspeed was impressive. Finally he won the race by 1'42" ahead of Marvin Goericke.
Pieter Hendrickx and Bojan Blumenstein were still in a close fight for the silver medal in the overall ranking. The Belgian worldchampion finished 2 seconds ahead of Blumenstein (4th today) and secured his 2nd spot. Ueli Werren and Moritz Dollgast completed the top-6 today.

In women's class Greet Oeyen again performed strong today. She won the final stage and the overall victory. She enjoyed the course very much and specially wanted to thank todays coursesetter for his great job.
By absence of Josephine Greiner, Liesbeth van de Velde could secure the 2nd spot in the overall ranking today. She finished 2'41" behind Oeyen. Salome Schweizer from Suisse finished 3rd and completed the podium today.

In junior class, the Flemih junior coach organised the Junior Cup (a competition with a knock-out system). Today the finals took place between Klaas Mellebeek and Simon Krekels. Mellebeek succeeded to win the overall 5-days competition, but the Junior Cup was won by Simon Krekels.
