Today is a special day, the birthday of Michel Poletti, #UTMB Race Director 🎂
Michel is one of the creator of the UTMB®, of those who had the crazy idea to run around Mont Blanc, without stages, 15 years ago.
Last year, he finally took a bib on one of the races of the UTMB®, first time since 2010, the year of the UTMB® stop for bad weather.
✨ He ran the whole 2017 #TDS with his radio, in connection with the race HQ, making us feedback on the conditions of the field, giving us his opinion, advice, etc. with all his lucidity.
While others focus only on their race, Michel met the aid station managers, the volunteers, being sure that everything goes well, tested the radio equipment in real conditions 🌦
All while overcoming the 120km in 28h30. Easy 💪
