New records have been registered at the MCST!
This sixth season, Millet Courchevel Ski Touring (MCST) is well and truly launched. Since last week the snow is at the rendez-vous and for this fifth round of the MCST a snowcat has groomed the two days accumulated snow on the course a few minutes before the race kickoff. A real treat for the 110 participants who were able to perform on a velvet carpet this rise of 3.2km in ski touring with 500m of elevation gain between Le Praz and Courchevel 1850. As every Wednesday, the skiers estimate their Rise Time during their prior registrations. The slower people start first and the fastest go last to allow beginners to not end up back of the pack and can sometimes arrive before the elites!
This Wednesday, January 13, the men podium was played in a handkerchief. Gary Ozeray from the Peisey Vallandry ESF won by picking up the new provisional record of the season in 24min44s. Alexandre Vionnet Fuasset from the Arêches Beaufort Multisports Club ended at the second position with 24min52s at the clock, and Arnaud Mazet at the third place with 24min57.
