Toma Coconea's (ROU) team says: 'The eighth day began with a steady 7.5km climb with 1600m of elevation, but also with an amazing flight. From Niesen, Switzerland, the landscapes are gorgeous, and the blast that he gave brought him to the top 5 when he took Turnpoint 9 Mont Blanc. Today, it is very, very warm, and that prevents us from covering long distances in flight. Tomi runs!' Coconea is now in 12th, 334km from Monaco.
