Jez Bragg is the “unexpected” (per his words) 2010 UTMB champion. As he mentioned in our pre-race interview, he’d never put together a good race at the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc. Well, all that was lacking in those previous race was there for this year’s revised race. In the interview Bragg shares his experience in Friday’s canceled race, Saturday’s revised race, and the confusing interim period with a focus on Saturday’s official UTMB.
