Big triangles in the Pyrenees (up to 170km). And also some hard climbing routes.

2012, to fly down mountains.

What is your mountaineering experience?
I’m a rock climber/alpinist/ski tourer since I was 10 years old.

Hike and fly, rock climbing, ski touring or running (depends on season) and sometimes a day off 🙂

My first flight over 100km: it was my first flight in the Alps and I was still a beginner with just 100 flights.

Why did you choose the X-Pyr?
It’s nice to compete at home and against some of the best pilots.

Have you participated in the X-Pyr before? How was it?
First time.

Have you flown in the Pyrenees before? What do you think about them?
II fly most of the time in the center part of the Pyrenees, on the French and Spanish sides.

What will your strategy be during the race?
I watched a lot of tutorials from Chrigel Maurer, so trying to fly straight to the next point instead of walking 🙂

What excites you most about the X-Pyr?
Flying with top hike and fly pilots, discover new area and doing all of that with friends.

Bad weather!

Why will he/she make a good assistant?
Because she knows me very well.

Anything else you like to comment?
Thanks to the organizers, it’s a lot of work and without you, there wouldn’t be any races.


    Without these guys we would not have the race.
