Yesterday, together with Guillaume "Dynastar" Garnier, we did a great cycling trip around Mont Blanc.
Thanks to Carlos Jorge Silva, Benjamin Dunand and Débora Silva for the photos!
A quick feed back about my participation, last Saturday (April 12th 2014), on the Madeira Island Ultra Trail - MIUT (115km & 6800m D+). From all the races that i've done in these passed 6 years, the MIUT will always stay in my memory as the most amazing, fabulous and breathtaking trail that I've ever done. And I say this after doing only 70km of the race (I had to quit due to an injury on my knee), if I had finished the race, my opinion would be for sure even better :-)
Olá à todos,
Estamos no período das Festas, é tempo de engordar uns quilitos, as sapatilhas já estão no armário (e aí vão ficar durante 4 meses), os esquis já estão preparados para mais uma época invernal e chegou à hora de fazer o balanço desta época 2013. === Versão Portuguesa === Version Française === English Version ===
Un bref retour sur ma participation de ce matin au 80km du Mont Blanc:
Je suis parti comme un "avion de chasse" derrière le peloton de tête (6 coureurs). Je me sentais super bien et au sommet du Brévent j'étais classé 7eme seulement 3 minutes derrière les premiers.
Ensuite le cauchemar a commencé: 2 petites chutes et je me suis blessé aux 2 genoux.
Today I had the pleasure to climb in the company of João Garcia, the portuguese greatest alpinist of all times (see here João Garcia in Wikipedia). Even if the weather wasn't the best, it was a good moment spent in the mountains.
We left from the Aiguille du Midi at 8h00 and we skied down to the Col du Midi. There was quite a few people in the mountains today. Routes like the Goulotte Cheré, Contamine Grisolle, Arete des Cosmiques, Traversée Pointe Lachenal and the Traversée de la Vallée Blanche were all busy.
