Fiona Wylde is ready for the GlaGla Race

Fiona Wylde GlaGla RaceFiona Wylde arrived in France one week before the GlaGla Race and was on the lake last sunday for a training session with Alain Teurquetil and Annecy Stand Up Paddle Club.

We asked her a few questions while she was on her way to go skiing in Chamonix !

Question 1 : A SUP race in the middle of winter in the Alps… on lake, what a strange idea don’t you think?

When I told my friends and family that I was coming to France for a race in the mountains in January, I got some pretty strange looks. Sure, it’s a different type of race and a bit unusual, but those are the best experiences!! I’m really excited to race, whatever the weather may be!

Question 2 : You arrived a week ago and came to a training session last sunday in Talloires. What was your first impression of the place, the lake ?

It’s been really nice to arrive early. I got here a week and a half before the race so I can enjoy the mountains skiing and get a few good paddles in before the race. Paddling with the Sunday crew was spectacular!! The local group here in Annecy is really strong and very passionate! It was fun to get on the water with everybody, especially with Alain leading us in Interval Training! 😜

Question 3 : Are you ready 😉 ?

3) I’m really looking forward to it!

Thanks Fiona enjoy you stay in Annecy and good luck for the races !


Ty Judson arrived in France one week before the GlaGla Race

Ty Judson will be at the GlaGla Race

Hi Ty! We are super excited to welcome you at the GlaGla Race! What does it represent for a waterman such as yourself who is used to warm conditions, waves and saltwater, to race in the Alps in the middle of winter?

I find that racing in potentially sub zero temperatures is a novelty, but with the higher level of athletes attending it turns into a challenge. Having the likes of Titouan Puyo, Ludovic Teulade and Martin Vitry you always know that when you get on the start line it’s going to be as competitive of a race as any.

Ty Judson NSP team

There are more and more NSP riders attending the GlaGla Race, can you tell us more about the team?

The NSP team is a very tight knit family that I’ve grown to know and love. No matter where we are in the world, we always find the time to come together, have some fun and put on a show. I feel honoured to have been adopted into this amazing team. Having someone like Titouan Puyo to help guide the way as a mentor, fellow competitor, brother and friend has been something of an invaluable experience to me. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings for me and the team.

Ty judson waves

What board are you intending to use for the GlaGla Race?

For the GlaGla Race 2020, I’ll be using the NSP Carolina. It definitely gives me the advantage for any condition Annecy has to throw at me.

You’re coming for the GlaGla Race, but the ski resorts aren’t that far away, are you planning on skiing during your stay?

That’s about all I’ll be doing during my stay here in France. I’ll be with the NSP Team (my second family) in Valmorel snowboarding, cross country skiing, mountaineering etc. – most of which are brand new to me, which I’m super excited to experience!
