Trail des Aiguilles Rouges 2011... the summer has ended

Trail des Aiguilles Rouges 2011... the summer has ended!!!

This last weekend I raced the last competition of the 2011 summer. The amazing and always beautiful (and very hard too) Trail des Aiguilles Rouges. 50km and 4000m+ in the Chamonix Valley, facing the Mont Blanc.

UTMB 2011: Final balance... let's see what's next!!!!

The UTMB 2011 is finished and it's time to look back and analyse the race. I have no regret of my decision to abandon in La Fouly (110km). My quadriceps were "on fire" from the Grand Col Ferret descent and I was suffering so much that it would takes ages for me to finish the race.

Viva Le Tour de France: Col de la Madelaine

"C'est La Fête du Tour".... it's true, all over France this is the period where everybody feels the impulse to ride their road bike. The Tour the France is taking place now and they are approaching the Pyrenees and then the Alps.

Y Couloir, Aiguille d'Argentiere, Chamonix Mont Blanc area

The ski mountaineering competition season is finished, now it's time to enjoy the mountains... today (in a not great weather day) we decided to climb again the Aiguille d'Argentière. But this time we headed for the Y couloir. It's a 400m couloir on the E face of the Aiguille de Argentiere. The conditions were great, the snow was hard and we progressed really fast.
