Girls to the top

Girls to the top are two French mountaineers who went to Asia, seeking unknown spots. From China to Nepal, through India, they went meet women who are skiing, mountaineering and climbing. In those countries where the feminine practice of those sports is not common, and even not well received, they met those girls who, despite all opposition, will keep going higher. Let's watch the teaser of their next video.

Fractured Fibula : Aurélien Ducroz forced to rest!

Aurélien Ducroz announces that he will not be at the start of the Xtreme Verbier on the legendary "Bec des Rosses" on Saturday. During training in Chamonix yesterday, Wednesday, he hit a rock, hidden under the snow and broke his leg. That means no competition for Aurélien, a contest he is very fond of and has won three times and reached the podium five times. 








Early season ending

"I'm obviously hugely disappointed, I’ve been preparing and training a lot these last weeks as we had great conditions in the Mont Blanc mountain range. I challenged myself during my film sessions to be confident to be able to tackle the 500 vertical metres of the 'Bec' in any type of snow conditions. I also had a trip planned on Monday to Narvik in Norway to film sailing and skiing… In short, with the injury I will have to stay still for six weeks, which does not fit my programme at all! However, I'm staying positive, as the fracture line is clean and much easier to heal than a torn ligament. I'll be up and running in no time! And I will continue to plan and prepare for my projects this summer and next winter…"

The winter season came to an end a bit too fast for Aurélien but has till now been filled with many great days on skis! He did no less than eight Cham'lines webisodes, the last one filmed yesterday! Episode 7 and 8 are scheduled to be online April 1st and 15th series, respectively. He has also been working on another webcalled "Chamonix Experience", which will be launched next autumn, as well as several other projects already or soon to be published.

A busy summer coming up !

On the sailing side of things, Aurélien will turn back to sea on a 31-metre Maxi Multihull. Renowned sailor, Thomas Coville, mentor and godfather of Aurélien's boat "Mini", has invited Aurélien to sail with him in June on Sodebo Ultim (to be launched on April 28th, more info here). Just enough time for Aurélien to heal from his injury and get the sensations of action sport back, this time on the water!

Aurélien's main objective this coming sailing season is the Route du Rhum, with the start scheduled for November 2nd, 2014. Aurélien hopes to find the necessary finance to take on a new (for Aurélien) transatlantic crossing, after the Transat 6.5 in 2011, the Transat Quebec-Saint Malo in 2012 and the Transat Jacques Vabre in 2013. The Route du Rhum is a single-handed race and starts at Saint-Malo, in Brittany and finishes at Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe. It is a new and big challenge for the skier/skipper, which he will be preparing meticulously together with several experienced sailors.
