What Kilian Jornet is up to in 2012

We're excited to see that Suunto Athlete Kilian Jornet is planning another big year of running in 2012. Here's his latest plan for hitting the trails (after the snow season ends, of course - Kilian is off to Mount Etna for the Ski Mountaineering Trophy World Cup in Sicily next week!)
"This year I wanted to do different things, after many years of doing the same races, and wanted to seek new goals, new discoveries."
Here's his schedule, with a few comments from Kilian on each:

May 12: TRANSVULCANIA 83km. (Canary Islands-Spain) A career run that I wanted to compete, on an island paradise (!)and this year with an exceptional level ... but it is only 1 week after the PDG run!

May 20: Zegama 42km. (Euskadi - Spain) / A Classic - this will be the 4th time I have participated. Without doubt one of the essential (in my opinion with di Mont Giir Sierre Zinal i) Great Environment!

June 23: Western States 100. 100M (California USA) The 3rd participation for me, despite being a career that suits my conditions I want to return for the environment and to stay after in the little known Californian mountains.

June 30: Kilian's Classic: (Font Romeu Pyrenees) more than a race, a party of Trail running, with running friends, and a chance to show you my country.

July 20 to 22: VK and SkyRace Dolomites. 2 km and 21km (Dolomites - Italy) I ran this 3 years ago and it left me a very good taste, a spectacular region and a beautiful career.

July 28: Speedgoat. 50 km. (Utah - USA) Off to the United States again to spend a month there to discover and run by its mountains in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada.

August 19: Pikes Peak Marathon, 42km (Colorado - USA) An American Classic, the 3rd oldest marathon in the USA and the 1st mountain race. It felt like a long race last time!

August 26: KIMA, 50km (Valtellina - Italy) One of the great, the first Skyraces and one of the more technical. Pure Skyrunning!

October 14: Kinabalu Climbathon 21km (Borneo - Malaysia) Short but the hardest, 2300m up and down technical trails. This year I return to Asia for this beautiful race.

Oct. 19: Grand Raid Reunion, 170km (Reunion Island) The 20th anniversary probably holds many surprises. How to describe this race? Impossible, people, environment, landscapes, nature, hardness ... a dream
