Stage 9 – 20/01/2020 : Aussois
The mushers of La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc started their race 9 days ago in the french Alps. Now they slide through the amazing landscapes of the Haute Maurienne Vanoise region. The stage of the day was launched in the ski resort Aussois in front of many loyal spectators who come every year to cheer the athlete-dogs and their leader.
The mushers had great pleasure to follow this playful trail which alternated forest and technical alpine paths.
It was difficult for Iker Ozkoidi (SPA), in the OPEN category, and Christian Perlwitz (FRA), in the LIMITED category, to challenge the leaders Remy Coste (FRA) and Cindy Duport (FRA). Still they were all smiling at the arrival as they enjoyed the stage.
The 8 new mushers who joined the race today for the Trophée Caisse d’Epargne Rhone Alpes also appreciated a lot the day. During 3 days, these teams will follow the trail of the main race to the Col du Mont-Cenis and sleep at the mythical polar base camp.
