Éric Abidal’s training regime up in the Pyrenees will come to an end this Sunday following a few days work with physio Emili Ricart, who has put the Frenchman through a series of aerobic exercises, mountain climbing and ball work.

This Saturday, Abuidal scaled the 2,483 metre Salana peak to finish off a week that has seen him also climb up to the Montgari refuge, the Colomers Lakes and the 2,883 metre high Montarto mountain.
