"I am a sports fan, any sports, I am a competitor at heart and I love spending time in the mountains with my friends."
BIOGRAPHY

I started paragliding with my dad when I was 12. I soon joined the Rhône-Alpes league team and took part at my first competitions. In the meantime, I did a lot of endurance sports in the context of my school program (trail, bike, XC-skiing, ski touring). I naturally took part to hike and fly competitions.

Nowadays I am in the Pôle France and I am looking forward to getting back to international competitions. I hope to get good results in the hike and fly category in order to hopefully take part to the famous X-Alps one day.

Curiosities

First

A life-saving thermal that a bird showed me and that got me out of a nasty canyon to catch up the leading pilots during a pre-World Cup in Romania. That was the last task at the end of the day, the light was amazing. I enjoyed a long final 5km glide to the goal and a lovely victory.

Second

A special flight from Charmant-Som, a mountain that I know well. Nothing special but it was at the end of a 4-day hike and fly competition (Air Tour) including 12h hike per day, over 250km total and 8000m climb… I was exhausted, Sam showed me the way to take-off before the clouds were too thick. I was right on time. Once in the air I couldn’t help screaming my joy out. Two minutes after take-off, the mountain was wrapped with thick clouds.

Third

A failed attempt to break the climbing record on foot with a glider on the back. Three attempts with the assistance of a great team but we learnt a lot. I still hope that I can break this record one day.

Last

My admiration for famous sportsmen like Federer and Wan Der Poel. They proved to be great human beings before being champions. I believe there is still room for improvement for this in the high level paragliding competitions world.
