A 5-time Diagonale des Fous finisher and 3rd place last year, meet La Réunion’s Freddy Thévenin: https://t.co/8GJvBnDtDY

If you want to perform at Diagonale, you have to like climbing because there are a lot of climbs here and the downhills as well, a lot of downhills. It’s very technical, so if you like technical trails, you will love here. Of course, other big point here is the heat. When you enter Mafate, which is a cirque, during the day, it’s extremely hot, and you have to deal with this. For the last section of the course it’s in the afternoon and basically it’s easier physically, but you have to hang on mentally. The trail is easier, but it’s the end of the race and it’s more than 150 kilometers. You have to be strong in your head.
