Unfortunately, after two days of racing, sun and beautiful trails, we will keep a definitely sad memory of this weekend, after a guy who crashed on the first stage, Christophe Beauger, died in hospital from his fall. All the protagonists of the event, and in general all the MTB community, join in 1001sentiers tribute to Christophe and send to his family all their deepest condolences.
