I attempted to set a reference time on the classic route of GRP du Dévoluy from col de Festre.

I had 4 pacers covering the whole route and relaying each others approximatively every 20 km. A car was following me to get me water and food supplies as well as spare clothing and shoes if needed.

It was a tough day since the beginning where my legs were heavy but I managed to keep going and find myself better after 65 km than in the middle of the route.

The terrain was a little more difficult than expected and I was overheating around km 49 when a thunderstorm shower hit us and got me refreshed.
