Pierra Menta 2010

By admin - Posted on 05 January 2012

This last weekend, in Areches-Beaufort (France), between the 11 and the 14 March 2010, it took place the most beautiful, the most amazing, the greatest Ski Alpinism/mountaineering Competition in the World... the Pierra Menta.

4 days, 4 stages, 10.359m of D+, 190 teams of 2 persons. The weather was simply perfect!!!


The 2010 edition was won by Kilian Jornet (Spain) and Florent Troillet (Swiss). This was my second Pierra Menta, after 2009. I made team with Laurent Bellino, a french guy. This year I wanted to do really well, to finish below the 50th place. It was possible but we had a lot of gear issues in the 1st and 3rd day. At the end we finished 55th, but we made a very good race in general, specially the last stage, that we finish in 39th place.

Total Stats of the Pierra Menta 2010: 4 days of racing over 13 hours, 10,359 meters climbing, + 95km.
