Interview before the utmb : arnau julia bonmati

By Arnau Julia Bonmati, ultra trailer, winner of The North Face ® TDS® 2013

Why did you decide to run the UTMB® this year ?

To compete in one of the best races in the world. I will run the TDS®

Why did you choose the TDS® ?

Because I enjoyed a lot last year, and this year it will be nice to try to win another time.

How do you prepare for it (training, races in preparation, … )

This year is not my best year… a lot of problems… especially a ankle…. but I’m preparing as well as I can the race...

What will be your goal ?

Try to be in the front and enjoy the race. Podium??? Win??? I don’t know but we will see how I will recuperate the ankle.

What are you afraid of during the race ?

Entorce my ankle again!!!

How will your organize your refueling (technical aspect, products….)

We organize every races in the same way : I try to stop and eat well for 5 or 10 minutes every 4-6 h of race. In the middle, I take some gels and bars like the Coup de Fouet, Energix or Amelix bars.

What do you think of your 2014 season ?

I’m not happy with it… I have a lot of up and down weeks… I’m quite unstable, and I can not train like the last year. But I know that during my personal project, RETO 3000, I feel really well. So I hope to recover my ankle and can arrive in good condition to the TDS®
