Foulée de plaisir

Two brothers at the top: a brotherly duel

Martin, 22, signs this victory very close to his brother Anatole, 19, crossing the finish line together more complicit than ever. A time that adds to yesterday’s on the demanding KV-KL format for Martin.

Trail enthusiasts, it’s with family that the young athletes come to train in the Hautes-Alpes: “Beyond a sport, trail running is a way of life. Martin points out that he doesn’t run to be strong, but to stay in shape.”

The course was demanding for both brothers: “the climb at the start of the race is quite steep, so we pushed on our legs until the second climb, where we were able to find the right stride to reach the crests. The descent over the balconies offers panoramic views of the surrounding peaks, so we had a lot of fun.”

A fan of “short” formats, the two brothers leave with their heads full of memories and the firm intention of repeating the experience.

The experience and determination of a triathlete

On vacation in the Hautes-Alpes, the triathlete managed to take first place. Her experience as a seasoned athlete rewards her efforts. An investment driven by her passion for mountain sports: “I train twice a day, varying between swimming, cycling and running. This race fits in perfectly with my preparation plan for my next goals.”

“The course is very well marked, there aren’t many technical downhills and that works in my favor as I prefer the uphills. From the summit, the view of Lac de Peyrol is very pretty and the Vars balconies offer a beautiful panoramic view.”

Anne-laure is delighted with her victory: “there’s a good chance I’ll be back next year.”
