Skimo & Adventure racer - Naak Athlete
Arnaud always loved sports and in 2011 when he moved to Orford, he fell in love with the mountain, rock climbing, trail running and of course, skiing. After running cross-country at the college level and competing in trail races, he needed to find a way to ski without using a chairlift. He found a solution in ski-mountaineering where he could also get to the perfect powder conditions. Since then, he joined the team at Endurance Aventure and Skimoeast which set him up with a pair of ultra-light skis. Skimo is a mix of trail running, cross-country and downhill skiing: the best of all three sports combined into one. I has been racing for the past year and a half on the Skimoeast series. He's also training for races out West in Canada and a few in Europe for La Grande Course Series. On top of that, he's also training for the 2016-2017 Canadian championships and the international Training Camp in Europe. He will also be participating in the 2016 Raid International de Gaspésie, a 300 km race. He recently won the 12-hour adventure race GMARA Bitter Pill after he placed second at the Frigid Infliction 12 hour Raid this past winter, which qualified us for the Raid international championship in the US

What do you think about the Naak bar?
The Naak bar, the only energy bar with 10g of proteins that can be eaten easily when running after a massive fatigue or as a post-exercise snack. I can rely on its positive effects for my trainings and races. This energy bar is for me the best alternative to animal protein. There is no better and innovative way than moving forward with insect protein. The Naak team brought to the market a new and innovative energy bar. This is perfect for both the greatest athletes and those who get into sport. I make no mistake when using this fabulous product.
