We met Stéphane Brogniart in Chamonix during the UTMB 2017. He is often presented as an ultra-trailer, a french mountain lover, a very nice character, with a philosophy of sport a little alternative. So yes, he is all that. But for us, he is above all an extraordinary adventurer. Let us tell you why.
After the crossing of the Vosges french mountains in 2016, then the crossing of the Jura french mountains in 2017, he will make a tour of the Vosges department (east of France) with roller-skis. 480km non-stop, 6100D +, in less than 48h – out-of-norms and especially a little crazy. And since we love challenges at Tech4Race, we’ll be there – like for its 2017 crossing of the Jura moutains ! You will be able to follow him in real time from April 19th to 21st on our web interface – which will be diffused on a web page dedicated to the event set up by Athlete 2.0.
And this ride on roller-skis is only the first step of a challenge all the more enormous. Indeed, Stéphane Brogniart has set up the project “Etarcos” which has as its final goal the crossing of the South Pacific by rowing within 5 years. From 2018 to January 2023, he will have 3 to 4 challenges a year to prepare for it. We told you, he is a real adventurer! You can follow all his preparation on his blog (only in french).
See you on April 19th at 9pm for the launch of the ”Traversée des Vosges”!
