PTL video

La Petite Trotte à Léon — The long way around Mont Blanc from Jill Homer on Vimeo.

Beat carried a GoPro camera during the La Petite Trotte à Léon last month, and filmed a few segments of his race. He definitely took his camera out during some pretty times, and his footage shows just how spectacular this route is. There are hints of the brutality as well. I compiled some of his footage into a quick five-minute video to show to friends at a party tonight. The link to the video is above.

  2. Thanks for doing this. It looks like it would be a great place to hike but not at night and not on only a few hours of sleep in several days. I can't imagine how you didn't fall off the trail with your visual issues. Incredible scenery. Makes me want to go there but do at a leisurely pace!

  7. While I read about all your adventures all over the place, this was one where I drew the line - no way would I ever do that, not even for the beautiful scenery! My stomach lurched just watching some of this footage. So I appreciate your dealing with your Monster so I don't have to, and thanks to Beat for recording so I can see the brutifulness of it. You are wonderfully nuts.
