F3F French League: Col de Tende

This week-end was the french league contest of Col de tende at the border between Italy and France. We got light conditions on saturday, but managed 4 rounds on the south slopes. Unfortunately on Sunday, the wind stayed too light and from the north so we couldn't resume the contest. Best time of the comp in 38s by Frédéric Hours. Stay and camping on the slope would have been perfect without an army of flies and mosquitos which just eated us !
A big thanks to Sébastien and Philippe Lanes, the organisers !
