Serious contenders

It is more than likely to be a great fight between top teams registered:

  • Nicolas Touchot & Pierre-Yves Durand (2023 winner together with Lou Mourniac);
  • Matthieu Marfaing, runner-up last year, crewed by his American team-mate James Melvin;
  • Nicolas Gillet, valiant third in the ninth edition, who finds back his partner Nicolas Poix, injured last year;
  • Emmanuel & Vincent Boulogne;
  • Gurvan Bontemps & Benjamin Amiot, 2014 winners
  • Ad & Maarten Noordzij;
  • Not mentioning top US teams
