The weather was almost training perfection; warm early fall days with sunshine and cool nights until the last day when it rained by the bucketful. The rain mattered little; there was just one more test race and everyone was off on a week of holiday and rest.

An almost clear sky at sunrise was a nice change from the previous rainy day as Martin Fourcade and three friends set out at 8 am on an out-and–back cycling tour of almost 100 km through the Pyrenees. The planned trip from Argeles Gazost to the top of the Gavarnie Col de Tentes at 2208 meters would be Fourcade's second big cycling tour of high peaks in the past four days. Just three days prior, he had cycled about 90 km to the top of the legendary Col du Tourmalet, just a day after the Tour de France had passed over one of the hardest climbs of the 23-day event.

It is 9:15 AM and the streets of the small of Pierrefitte-Nestalas in the French Pyrenees are quiet, except for one sound, the "clack, clack, clack" of Martin Fourcade's ski poles as they hit the pavement. Ahead is a solitary 19K uphill trek to Lac d'Estaing, climbing from 460 meters to 1163 meters, followed by a fast downhill through rural France on a single lane road; just another day at the summer office for the top-ranked biathlete in the world.
