Congratulations Ralph Sigg on 2nd place in the Haute Route Dolomites. This was Ralph's second Haute Route this year. He competed in the Pyrenees (1st AG), rested a week, and then climbed on his bike again to conquer the Dolomites.
The weather was very challenging. Ralph won the individual time trial on a brutally cold rainy day and was in the lead until a youngster “Frenchie” took the lead on the last climb on day 7. Two years ago, “Frenchie” lead Ralph by almost 2 hours, this year Ralph cut the deficit to only 4 minutes. What an outstanding improvement! Did I mention that Ralph did the Haute Route Pyrenees the week prior and won!! He also won the combined Haute Route Pyrenees, Alps, and Dolomites.
