The 6th round of the vertical race circuit was held this weekend in London. The French managed to do well.

This 6th round of the vertical race circuit held all its promises with the record of the rise of the Broadgate Tower (35 floors, 877 steps) that fell in both men and women.

Indeed, the Japanese Ryoji Watanabe improved the previous record of 17 seconds by climbing the 877 steps in 3'41 ''. Note the excellent 3e Place Mickaël Pourcelot in 4 minutes. A performance of the first order since the French had prepared this appointment but failed at 17 hundredths of the podium. After six appointments, he occupies the 8e of the general classification. A ranking always dominated by the Belgian Omar Bekkali.

On the women's side, the first five of the event have all done better than the previous record! The local stage, Sarah Frost, was torn off to finish in 4'40 ''. The French Anaïs Leroy takes the 3e place in 4'55 '' while Laure Chardin finishes 8e (5'56). The overall standings are dominated by Finnish Laura Manninen.
