Teclib’​ keeps supporting Christian. This time, in the “Challenge Paris – Nice” 🚴‍♂️ 
After only some days since the last race, our associate Christian Osorio Bernal, member of the Club Sardines Triathlon Marseille, is embarking himself, supported by Teclib’​, into a new goal: “Challenge Paris – Nice“.

We wanted to know how Christian was feeling previous to the race and he shared with us:

“A week after running the Grande-Motte Half-Marathon, here we are with Teclib on the eve of the Paris – Nice Challenge. Race which resumes the last stage of the “Race to the Sun” starting in cold conditions in Paris and ending with warmer temperatures in Nice. However, this year, cold, rain and snow are on the horizon! Another work of resilience, resistance and determination in sight!

I’m looking forward to being able to do a long outing with a lot of elevation gain, certainly not like the EmbrunMan, but the 140km and the 2800D+ will be felt 7 days after the Half-Marathon! This will allow me to take stock of the state of fitness at 5 months of the Alpe d’Huez triathlon!

So, despite the almost certain absence of sun, let’s keep smiling to warm the heart and enjoy the legs with unique landscapes and astonishing views.

Paris – Nice, Teclib’ and I are happy to be part of this challenge this Saturday March 9, See you tomorrow 😀”

Here are some flashback images from the race!

Today, March 11th, Christian has completed his race, and we are eagerly awaiting his initial impressions of this significant challenge! We were thrilled to accompany and support him throughout this journey, which held great importance for him.

Here’s what he shares with us:

“Rainy race… happy race… that was the attitude to adopt on Saturday, March 9th, at the 2024 Paris-Nice Challenge. Cold, rain, and slippery ground are never conducive conditions for achieving top results, but they do allow for a work of resilience, resistance, and determination. Essential qualities for the major goals of this year in July and September!

Good vibes and self-deprecation quickly took over, turning this course into a real challenge!

At the finish line, there was a taste of victory over oneself.

The body sends negative signals to stop being in uncomfortable conditions, but the mind only thinks about reaching the finish line. The landscapes and villages crossed were splendid… La Turbie, Col d’Eze, the great corniches, Villefranche sur Mer…

The fitness level was there, promising for the coming months as we begin triathlon and marathon preparations. I have fond memories of the last two climbs of this Paris-Nice, where a 14% slope for 2km almost made me put my foot down, especially the Col de Quatre Chemins segment!

See you soon for the next races with Teclib’ – the official editor of GLPI software.

Christian has arrived in Nice!
