BIO

I live in a small village just below the resort of Verbier, Switzerland. I have always been riding in Verbier since I was a kid. I started with a bit of cross country but I had way more interest in downhill. So I started racing downhill when I was 15 and few years later I did some enduro racing too. Now I am only racing in enduro. I like spending time with my friends and laugh. That’s one of my main goals too!


CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

  • 2011: 18th World Championship Downhill
  • 2013: 14th overall Enduro World Series

INTERVIEW 2014.12.04

What are you looking for to accomplish?

I am really looking to do a top ten in the Enduro World Series. But I can tell you it’s easier said than done ;) But I am trying my best.

"May Ludo "

What would be your greatest achievement?

To be on the podium of an EWS event.

What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?

It involves many different aspects of biking and requires lots of different skills. You have to be able to ride for 5-6 hours, to be explosive for the small sprints or longer ones, and to have a really good technique on the bike… 

"May Ludo"

What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?

I am satisfied when I feel that I couldn’t go faster in a race and that I gave everything. For sure it’s better when the result is good. 

Where do you practice your techniques when being alone?

At home in Verbier, Switzerland. We are lucky to have a really good bike park.

What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

Push myself towards my limits and try to be at my best, and always have some fun! I am really lucky to train with some friends almost every day, we laugh so much.

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?

Phil Warham from Bike Verbier, he calls me very often and asks me for autographs every 6 months.

"May Ludo"

What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?

Be who you are, not pretending to be someone else. I get a lot of inspiration from the best athletes and I try to take the best, but it’s important to stay who we are.

What are your future plans?

At the moment be faster on my bike, and maybe one day have a second fish.

"May Ludo"

What are your tips for those who begin now?

The most important point is to have fun when you do something. The rest will follow.
