Chamonix - Zermatt, new record, think you are fit?

Think you are fit? I thought I was as well, then I started hanging out with Rando Race People. RRP are the most amazing endurance athletes on the planet hands down. So these three French guys thought that gaining 8350 meters and skiing 7750 meters - yes those were meters - over 110 km in just under 19 hours was a good day of fun while skiing the Haute route from Chamonix to Zermatt. For those out for a cruise it usually takes a week.

I learned so much from RRP this past winter regarding breathing, pacing, and pushing hard. I wonder how much faster this will go? Skimo or Rando is without a doubt the best endurance training, races are popping up all around North America, check some out here:
