Maxime Pinot won the 2018 edition of the Bornes to Fly, which took place over the weekend of 19-21 May 2018.
The three-day hike and fly race started and finished in Talloires on the eastern shore of lake Annecy in France. Fifty-three teams were on the start-line, of which 15 successfully completed the 154km course around five turnpoints.
Latvia’s Karlis Jaunpetrovics, whose video is above, summed up Bornes to Fly: “What an absolute pleasure, pain, exhaustion, surrealness and emotional highs and lows”.
