After a short transfer the second timed section started. The participants had four hours and a fast gondola uplift and an unlimited number of runs to make the best of the trail. Total time from the best single run by each riders went into the final results.

Austrian rider Matthias Stonig (MS Mondraker) set the past with the fastest first run.
