Interview with Kilian Jornet: Motivations, inspiring others & being a gear geek
From winning trail running races around the world to taking on Everest, Kilian Jornet is perhaps the world’s most recognized outdoor sportsman. The 29-year-old Catalan first joined the Salomon Spain team in 2003. This year marks his 15th as a Salomon athlete, and the brand is proud to announce that Jornet and Salomon have agreed to extend that relationship into the foreseeable future. We thought it was a good time to ask him some questions about what motivates him, what inspires him and why he loves being involved in creating Salomon footwear, apparel and gear.
