    It's with great satisfaction that we have the honour of announcing some very good news to all ski mountaineering enthusiasts. Today at the ISMF Plenary Assembly in Stockholm, the member federations voted unanimously in favour of integrating the races of the so called La Grande Course, into the ISMF calendar, as the Long Distance Team events for the 2014/15 ISMF World Cup season.

    We are all very happy now that some of the most important ski mountaineering races have joined the ISMF family, and look forward to working together and taking the sport into the future.

    The Patrouille des Glaciers has brought the 2nd La Grande Course two-year circuit to an end.

    What with the Pierra Menta, the Adamello Ski Raid, the Mezzalama Trophy, the Millet Tour du Rutur Extrême and the PDG, the 2013-2014 La GC saw no shortage of spectacular and unexpected twists!

    The overall La GC ranking sees Matteo Eydallin e Damiano Lenzi tying for first place. Indeed, with a final sprint and a stunning victory at the PDG (along with Boscacci), the Army Sports Centre team has climbed to the top of the standings.

    March has been a very committing month for La Grande Course.

    The protagonists were the Pierra Menta from the 20th to the 23rd and the Millet Tour du Rutor Extrême from the 28th to the 30th. Both competitions we're win by the Courmayeur Centro Sportivo Esercito team composed of Matteo Eydallin and Damiano Lenzi and by Laetitia Roux and Maude Mathys in the female category. Laetitia Roux is now leading the GC ranking.

    With regards to the male category Eydallin, Lenzi, Bon Mardion and Jacquemoud are all at the lead of the make category with the same amount of points.

    This is why we have to wait the Patrouille des Glaciers (2nd and 3rd of May) to find out who will win it.
