Je ne suis pas photographe. Je n’ai jamais étudié la photographie ni assisté à un cours. Mais j’ai toujours été intéressé par le dessin, la composition et la couleur. Dessiner est l’une de mes grandes passions, oubliée depuis longtemps dans les cartons par manque de temps.

2014: The perfect season

Kilian Jornet is just about to begin a well-deserved holiday break after making history again with a magnificent trail running season. The athlete has been all over Europe to take part in various races and has also travelled to the USA to compete on two occasions. Jornet has taken part in different race types and modalities throughout the season motivated by the diverse race lengths and landscapes, which are very different from his usual training scene. The athlete has won most of the races, has made great performances and lived many personal experiences.

I like to be polyvalent and take part in different modalities, but I knew it would be difficult. Now I am very satisfied for the job I have done, as it is a prize to regularity in a year that I have had very good feelings"   Picture: Ricardo Selvatico

Held in the Arctic town of Tromsö, the race figured 130 athletes from 25 countries who faced a tough and highly technical route, especially chosen for lovers of pure sky running. Jornet and Forsberg spent the last four days hands on, helping out with marking the route, preparing supplies and various other technical aspects, so that everything was ready for the race.
