The winter comes nearer!


Hello everyone, it's been a bit of time since I updated. The preparation for the competition season is continuing at full speed.

In mid-August I spent a week with the Swiss junior team in Les Cernets in the Jura. During this week I have used up my rollerskis taking advantage of the roads with few traffic and even "trespassing" in France.

I returned to Davos to train for two weeks and then I went to Andermatt for the Swiss Nordic Weekend: a weekend of tests on roller skiing and running.

A painful departure


After having offered so many beautiful landscapes, mountain sometimes takes some persons that havs always loved it. Here we would like to remember you, Ettore, that have teached us to love and respect your dear mountains.

60 km to the finish line: holidays…not for all of us

This month our blog has reached a good result: if you type in Google "preparation Vasaloppet 2014," we are the fourth result! The month of August, however, is usually dedicated to holidays for everyone (except for Robi, who is  busy with exams), but the goal Vasa continues to approach, and training can’t be set aside.



From the sea to the passes of the Alps to finish on the mountains of the Leventina


In the last week of July I took advantage of the rest week from training to go to the mediterrean sea for five days to "relax";). I've been in Monterosso in the Cinque Terre where I enjoyed the sea and took advantage of the coolest moments of the day for a run along the shore.

70 km to the finish line: summer is coming


Here we are in July, just in the middle of the summer, even if we still have to go on holiday…The race seems very far, mainly for this hot weather, but, we know, that we have to exploit as much as we can the 7 months left.
