Yet experienced in the terrible efforts of extreme races, Anthony Zarra crossed the finish line empty. It is true that the champion was not in his best shape, a month after the Transiberica, the bike race in complete autonomy without assistance through Spain (3,500 km and above all nearly 50,000 meters of elevation) on which he ended up with a sore foot.

The day after this Iron Man, Anthony Zarra was still struggling to realize: “I did it! My dream has finally come true but I still have trouble believing it.
