On 1,2,3, October, Yoyo (from Holland), Matt(from England) and I trained on around the Col du Geant for their competition to the South Pole. They will compete this winter (summer down south) with
other teams for three weeks in Antarctica, racing to the South Pole on skis and pulling sleds.
We had beautiful autumn weather, although they wished for stormy training weather, while we practiced winter camping in a tent, pulling sled, skiing, crevasse rescue, and many other skills they will need to traverse the frozen continent.
Good luck in your race Yoyo and Matt.
