Cycling champions blitz the ski slopes

Moreno Argentin has repeated his performance of last year and won this year's edition of the Cycling-Ski Challenge, an event which pits former cycling champions against each other on the slopes of the Dolomiti Stars. The former world champion won at night on the Zoldo Alto and San Pellegrino passes, with Rolf Sorensen taking second and and Francesco Moser third.
