Laura Gauché: “We run into someone we know all the time”

“Running at home feels good. In 2020, I approached the races very differently, I came back after a lot of falls, it put more pressure on me to attack through Val d’Isère. There, it is not the same optics, I can not wait to be there. For our races, generally there is not a lot of public, but our families, the clubs, are there. And then with Tiffany Gauthier we come from Tignes, right next door, every two seconds we meet an instructor or someone we know, it’s nice. “
