Le champion français AurĂ©lien Collet, qui fera partie des loups favoris Ă  la victoire du 125 km de l'UTHC, peaufine sa prĂ©paration en altitude dans les Alpes cet Ă©tĂ©, sur un terrain qui n'est pas forcĂ©ment le sien. Et il est en grande forme! Il a terminĂ© 3e de la 6000D à La Plagne, une course redoutable en montagne de 65 km pour 3500 m de dĂ©nivelĂ© positif, et il vient de se classer – Ă  sa grande surprise apparemment – 6e des championnats de France de trail Ă  MĂ©ribel (51 km 4050 m D+). Bref, retenez ce visage, car la course reine de l'Harricana a le profil parfait pour lui permettre de briller sur longue distance, lui qui avait terminĂ© sur le podium de la Diagonales des fous sur l'Ăźle de La RĂ©union en 2014. Vous aussi vous commencez Ă  avoir hĂąte d'y ĂȘtre? #jesuisloup #uthc #utwt #neverstopexploring #uthc125 #ultratrail #trail #trailrunning #courseensentier #charlevoix #quebec #canada
