I think it’s safe to say that Mike Foote’s 11th place was the surprise performance by an American at this year’s The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. Sure, he’d won The Bear 100 last autumn and had some solid runs this year, but he’d never before shown what he was capable of on a big stage. He set out methodically, coming though mile 13 at Saint Gervais in 99th place and moved up all day. Find out a bit more about Mike, what worked for him and what didn’t at this year’s UTMB, and whether he plans to be back next year.
