Trailrunning Team Vibram® 2014

Vibram inaugurates the fourth edition of the “Ordinary People Being Extraordinary” project, adding four exceptional new entries : the Spanish athlete Javi Dominguez Ledo , back from an amazing third place in the UTMB®, and three women: the Italian Lisa Borzani , the Spanish Uxue Fraile and a promising French athlete, Céline Gros , who will support the other two French athletes, Ronan Moalic and Sébastien Nain .
