The ISMF European ski mountaineering championships took place last week on Mt Etna in Sicily, Italy. Robert Antonioli and Axelle Mollaret won the Individual race, ahead of Michele Boscacci and Laetitia Roux, and Kilian Jornet Burgada and Emelie Forsberg, silver and bronze respectively. The Vertical Race was won by Kilian Jornet Burgada and Axelle Mollaret, ahead of Davide Magnini and Victoria Kreuzer who placed second and Antonio Alcalde and Alba De Silvestro who placed third.
Strong gusts of wind and rain storm forced the Etna European Championships Organising Committee and the ISMF staff to take the tough decision to cancel the Vertical race scheduled for Friday morning at Piano Provenzana. Weather conditions improved on Saturday for the Individual race to take place as planned however.
