Dear athletes

[from the speech of the commander at the award ceremony] The Patrouille des Glaciers is a competition of superlatives and the past edition has proven this once more in all aspects, also with a new course record from our Italian friends.

The true winners of this Patrouille are all of you: your physical performance and mental robustness that let you be successful on the course between Zermatt and Verbier. The conditions this winter have been difficult at times during your preparation and also for the troops in the mountains getting the course ready. 

I would like to thank all partners for their contribution and collaboration. 

After three editions of the PDG I will pass the command over to my successor. Thank you and congratulations again for participating in this race. I wish a safe trip home and a good recovery.

Bravo and thank you!

Colonel Max Contesse, Commanding Officer PDG
