This year, Evolution 2 accompanies you on an even different project. Can you tell us about it?
Yes, this year I am returning to triathlon. I signed up for this Natureman format where they only select 50 people. The concept is great, both adventure and long distance challenge. The Natureman Var is 12 stages in ultra format: we will do 3 swims / road bikes / mountain bikes / trails, all in less than 48 hours. In total, it's 370 km and 10,000 m of elevation gain.
The Natureman is also a state of mind. Those who are too much in the competition are not selected. You really have to go there in the spirit of adventure, challenge and sharing. The goal is to finish and surpass yourself, we're not just here to chase the clock.
For my part, I would like to finish before the night of the 2nd day - that's around 7:30 p.m. in September. I calculated, it gives me 36 hours to finish. Sportingly, I think I'll be able to complete the course in 27 hours, but you have to add supplies and sleeping time. So on this basis, 36 hours seems doable to me.
In any case, the organization is amazing. We will be followed by a TV channel, with a live set commented by Patrick Montel. We'll have small radios to interview us during the raid, and a GPS beacon to track us live. There is Nathalie Simon who also participates in the women's team event.
