I was waiting for the official confirmation before announcing it, but YES, I’ll be racing Hardrock 100 miler next summer (that’s the one with 68,000 feet of elevation change). 1,367 pre-qualified athletes were competing for 152 spots, and only with one ticket in the hat somehow I got in. I’ll join Kilian, Anton, Iker, Karl, […]

High hopes for my performance at this year’s Virgil Crest 100 unfortunately didn’t materialize. I was going strong, but after getting severe hypothermia I had to pull out of the race at mile 86, being at the time in 3rd place overall. 70% DNF rate this year. Huge congrats to Jim Blandford with winning in […]
