The young pilot with a strong spirit
Former competitor in Downhill Mountain Bike, everything stopped on July 2nd, 2016.
I came home after the World Cup in Leogang, a short time afterwards I did the opening of the French’s cup where I had a bad fall : 2 vertebrae broken and my spinal cord touched. According to the doctors, I’ve only a tiny chance of walking again in life.
I can’t believe it. It’s the beginning of a long and huge fight, that makes me walking again and get back on my Mountain Bike.
With tenacity, I recovered little by little. A dogged work on my mindset and my body during 3 years, which allow me get back on my bike, and having fun again in mountain by walk, skiing or mountaineering.
I recovered at 90%, I work hard every day on my reeducation to get all of my capacities back.
The « Vélo Vert Festival » is an event that I hear about for years.
Almost unmissable destination for every fans of mountain Bike, with many tests products, races for all and a really nice atmosphere. I’m very glad of being an ambassador one more year and I’m impatient to be in June to be back on the track.
We had a special weather during the 2020 edition with some snow, which make it unforgettable. I hope the sun will be back for the 2021 edition.
We expect a lot of people there to have fun and spend good time together”.
