The pre race nerves are starting to kick in now...
So what does one do?
Don the inov8s and hit the tarmac & trails, let's face it, it would be rude not to as I am in one of the most stunning places in France.
I arranged to meet friends outside last nights Pizzeria below Le Chateau d'Annecy.
As planned we met at 06:30 and headed off down Rue de l'lle past Vienille Ville d'Annecy, over to lake, past the Maxi Race village finally reaching the final descent of all the Maxi Races.
We stood at a small gap between some buildings on the roadside looking up the rocky trail, the draw was far too great to resist so we decided to start our ascent...
Salomon Maxi Race Village
The Ascent, The views... Stunning.
I can not wait to actually get on the start line in the morning.
For today its back to the Hotel for breakfast and then off to the Maxi race village to collect the race number and check out all the gear on offer and try not to melt the credit card...
