Ultra DAD - The Western States by Vincent Viet


      After having raced at a national level in cycling (cross country then road), it is on foot that Vincent has eventually evolved into an athlete's practice. In 2012, for his first mountain race, he finished 8th in the CCC®. For many years, he seeks adventure in his practice and participates in several ultra distances abroad. He finished on the top step of the podium many times: UTCT65k; UT Guatemala; UT Drakensberg; The TREG.

In 2020 he created and organized his crazy project to join Annecy in Chamonix by the mountains: La AnnCham . he will keep this aspect of adventure and sharing at heart in his practice. He continues the following year with the UTMB® , which he completes in 24h16 in 17th place.

That year, in 2021, the idea of running the Endurance Trail des Templiers to try to get a place for the Western States 2022 was born.
