Skyrace des Matheysins
The first few kilometers are pretty easy-going, and you'll soon get to the first drinks station (6.2 km / 590 mD+). One kilometer further down, you'll attack the "Devil's Garden", a very nice single which takes you to the summit of the Pérollier (alt. 2183 m).
Best times segment Jonche --> Pérollier (Strava) : 27'26" Men / 32'45" Women
The quite technical downhill takes you to the second drinks station (10.6 km / 1320 mD+), at the "Col de l'Oullière". Intermediate timing post.
Next up is the rather steep climb towards "les Oreilles de Loup" (The Wolve's Ears). Technical parts with fixed ropes and safety nets. Vertical descend, chamois trail and back up (steep part, in the snow) until the Col du Tabor, from where you'll follow the mountain ridge until the Tabor (alt. 2389 m).
Another 2.5 km on the ridge until the last summit, the Piquet de Nantes (alt. 2216 m), and from then on downhill... the first 200 m are pretty steep, but then you'll plunge into a magnificent forest on a fast single track.
Drink post number 3 awaits you at km 17.8 / 1900 mD+.
The former last km is nearly flat and the last one slightly downhill.
