25-26th OF JULY ENDURANCE STAGE TOR DES GEANTS®, SECTION LA THUILE – COGNE: 84Km, 6.515 m D+

The section from La Thuile to Cogne is the part of the race track characterized by the highest peaks of the Tor des Geants®: Col Fenetre 3.002 m, that you pass going from Rhemes N.D. to Eaux Rousses, and Col Loson 3.299 from Eaux Rousses to Cogne. In this part of the competition, that is just the beginning, it is important to manage your energies, planning the time you will spent at the refreshment points and where you intend to stay longer.

During The ENDURANCE STAGE in 2 days, the TRM Team went through some key issues for the management of a competition over several days as the Tor des Geants:

  • Study of the trail track and different types of ground;
  • Composition of the backpack and technical clothes;
  • On spot training and test to optimize the use of the poles uphill and downhill;
  • Suggestions about best nutritional choices, planning of nutrition and hydration during the race;
  • Tips to manage most common problems that may arise;
  • Simulation of microsleeps, technique and timing;
  • Personal Assistance during the competition, how to organize it and suggested meeting points.

Favorable weather conditions and optimum temperature were the backdrop to the event.

Thank you all!
