Maraþonhlauparar á Íslandi
Jæja, ég er búin að finna út úr þessu. Síðasta leiðarlýsing sem ég setti inn endaði á Praz de Fort en þar voru búnir 39 km. af leiðinni og þar í grennd hefur Börkur verið kl. 4 (að íslenskum tíma). Samkvæmt mínum útreikningum finnst mér þá langlíkegast að hann hafi verið í Champex-Lac kl. 17:20 og þá búinn með 45 kílómetra af leiðinni. Hér er áframhaldandi leiðarlýsing :
Praz de Fort – Bovine
Nú er Börkur að verða kominn niður úr brekkunni, á aðeins eftir 141 m. lækkun á næstu 2 kílómetrum áður en hann byrjar aftur að fara upp. Framundan er Champex-Lac, en þangað er hækkunin 477 metrar á 6 kílómetrum. Næsta tímatökustöð er hins vegar ekki fyrr en eftir 15 kílómetra uppi á Bovine sem er fjall, en þangað er 700 m. hækkun í viðbót. Áætlaður komutími þangað er eftir ca. 2 tíma og 40 mínútur.
Úr leiðarlýsingu :
In going back down to ISSERT, go along its side while keeping this hamlet to the left and towards its exit, get back onto the main road.
Cross the main road and climb back up to your right for just 50 metres before turning Cross and follow the road for 200 metres before starting the climb up to CHAMPEX. Follow the TMB markings. This climb goes well because it is varied and very pretty. However it’ll be an hour before you will be at ease! When you get back on the road which arrives at CHAMPEX, you can easily cut across the hairpins right up to the lakeside. CHAMPEX-LAC, 110th kilometre, 1466 altitude, peaceful bathing station with a calm lake nestling on a pass. Very Swiss! Completely pastoral, most of the chalets are equipped with a mast, at the top of which flaps the Swiss flag. The welcome base waits you until the end of the climb, at the last turn at the entry of Champex-lac. It has been set up in the Fort d’Artillerie dating from World War II, and under the tent put up on the esplanade above the Fort. Léon (artiste in fruit tarts) and Gaston, during the race, are the masters of this place. You can drink, eat…and obviously go off again feeling much brighter, be it at the end of 5 minutes, or 5 hours. The track follows the lack to the right by the road and this rises up until the foot of a chair lift after a hairpin. The road goes down, then you leave it to take a wide route to the left, suitable for motor vehicles, very rolling in flat descent, for about 1 km. Swing to the right and 150 m further go left onto the little tarmac road which one follows for 800 m until CHAMPEX D’EN BAS.
In the field on the left, are those famous Swiss cows (those which take part in bullfighting…of course!)
At the end of the field, take a left onto the forest track that becomes a road. You are at least beginning to climb up calmly until the PLAN DE L’EAU: farm and halt, where the fountain offers you non-drinkable water! Only to refresh your legs…Pass a gate to go deep into the forest on a flat climbing road which narrows slightly. You are complete dominated on your left by the ARPETTE bell-tower, while in front and to the right by the Bovine pastures. A gate to pass! And Bang! You must again climb up an uneven track that rises straight up into the pastures. With the “vérâtres” (frequently confused with yellow gentians) giving way to rocks and slabs, you cross a torrent at the foot of a waterfall and this continues to climb….500m of altitude for only 1.5 km! The track climbs, abruptly, into the world of larch and spruce trees, brutally arriving at a magnificent prairie of Alpine pastures and reaches, in one long balcony to the right, the BOVINE farms.
