At the Dolomitenlauf weekend the Fischer athletes dominated all of the competitions.
Fabio Santus (ITA, Fischer) and Valentina Shevchenko (UKR, Fischer skis and poles) claimed victory at the Dolomitenlauf over 42 kilometres in free technique, which is part of the FIS Marathon Cup. The Italian won the tight finish ahead of his two brand mates Aliaksei Ivanou (RUS, Fischer skis, boots and poles) and Tim Tscharnke (GER, Fischer). "It was clear from the beginning that it would be a tough fight. I didn't think that I could win today as there were so many big names on the starting list," said the happy winner. The winner on the women's side likewise was impressed of the starting list: "There were many very good racers at the start today, that was something new. So it wasn't easy to win, am I am even happier for my victory!"

In the short distance Toni Escher (GER, Fischer Subaru Racing Team), Pavel Ondrášek (CZE, Fischer) and Michal Kautz (CZE, Fischer) claimed a three-fold victory with Fischer, too. Likewise did Benhard Tritscher (AUT, Fischer skis and boots), Markus Bader (AUT, Fischer skis and boots) and Aurelius Herburger (AUT, Fischer) already at the weekend kick-off at the Sprint in Lienz on Friday.

Also on Saturday at the Classic race over 25 km with Benjamin Seifert (GER), Jiri Rocarek (CZE) and Viktor Novotny (CZE) three athletes of the Fischer Subaru Racing Teams made the podium. In addition Martin Sutter (AUT, Fischer skis, boots and poles) took third spot behind Jerry Ahrlin (SWE) and Stanislav Rezac (CZE) in the classic long distance and was beside himself with joy: "The two started with a speed like hell - so I was really happy that I was able to follow and therefore I am really satisfied with my third place."
