What are your best and worst sporting memories?
The best: when I was 20 years old, I landed on the summit of Mont-Blanc, a childhood dream come true.

Why did you choose the X-Pyr?
The desire to discover a new playground and compete with the best hike and fly pilots.
Have you participated in the X-Pyr before?, How was it?
Have you flown in the Pyrenees before?, what do you think about them?
A little bit in the French part. They can get complicated quickly and flying there is very committing. The kilometers in flight are hard earned.
What will your strategy be during the race?
Never be afraid, never exceed my level of commitment, and be as efficient as possible with the team.
What excites you most about the X-Pyr?
The idea of crossing a mountain range and competing against the greatest pilots in the discipline.
What scares you the most about the event?
The strong wind and specific problem zones.
Why will he/she make a good assistant?
He is very good at analysis. A flight level similar to mine, he is physically at the top! And he is a great friend !!!
