When we hear Mont Blanc , we think of its 4,807 meters which culminate at the top of Europe. We also think of its ski area, its cliffs, its landscapes, its passes and its winding roads leading to the beautiful valley of Cham ‘.
Now imagine yourself in the heart of Chamonix on August 23, 2021, at dawn, and feel the atmosphere, the great thrill! Today is the start of the biggest ultra trail challenge in the world… the UTMB .
It is with fervor and passion that the Mineral Blue team has been supporting Mathieu Blanchard, our sports ambassador for several months. Determined to take up the challenge, he wanted to add our Phycocyanin (liquid extract of Spirulina) to his “nutrition” arsenal before the race, to prepare for it as well as possible.
It is with conviction, courage and mastery that he will finish in 3rd position during this ultra trail after having covered 170 km through three countries, France, Italy and Switzerland, 10 000 m of vertical drop and this in 21 hours and 12 minutes !!!
Find the interview with Mathieu Blanchard below where he tells us about his feelings, his sporting strategy, as well as the benefits that phycocyanin could bring him before, during and after the race.
