" I started biking as a little kid and started Downhill 5 years ago. I started first with TDJV (Departmental championships for young mountain bikers that mixes CX, DH and orienteering), I liked a lot the Downhill races and I dreamed about having a "big bike", so I started competing in the regional circuit and then involved all my family with me as I was improving ".

" I always loved extreme sports, first with a motorbike and at 13, my brother made me discover Downhill for the first time in Les Gets. I really liked it, and I wanted to discover it more. So, I went in Les Gets bike club, and I improved fastly... I did regional races and after an excellent 2014 season, I joined the team and discover the sport at a whole new level. Today, I'm French Champion and I will race in the World Cups !"
