MY FAVORITE TRAIL

Ancolie (Super-Besse)

MY FAVORITE BIKE PARK

Les Gets Bike Park

MY BIKE SETUP

I ride a 2018 Scott Gambler 710 in medium size, which is both an awesome bike for bike park laps and a sick DH races weapon. This is all I needed: a bike able to cruise down any bike park trails, but also to perform and go fast on downhill courses! I also have a 2012 Redline Flight, with a custom paintjob (oh yeah!) that I use to train at the BMX track. Learn more about my downhill bike setup, my gears and tools by clicking the below button.

MY FILM SETUP

I shoot with a Gopro Hero 6 Black mounted on my helmet, and sometimes mounted on a chesty mount. But to be honest, I do prefer the headcam view. Anyway, I only do headcam POV while filming owlaps videos. To learn more about all my camera gear and settings, click the button bellow!

MORE ABOUT ME

INTERESTED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME? HERE GOES...

I’m 19 and I’m born in Clermont Ferrand, France, litterally at the center of the France, close to Auvergne’s famous volcanoes! However, I left this spot and I’m currently living in Grenoble, the French Alps capital!

I started XC biking when I was 7. I was training at the SancyVTT club and racing during the week-ends. Curiosity quickly led me to trial biking, and downhill, that I practiced until my 14th. Then I changed my priorities and turned full downhill. I also started to ride at the BMX track as a complement, which I think is a perfect training for DH. It helps with fitness and for technical moves! In addition to my mtb passion, I’m also a dedicated fireman.

DH racing is a big part of my mtb life! Last year I ended up 11th of the global scratch ranking of the AURA DH cup (regional cup). Only a few points away from the top 5, due to a crash during the last round… This year I’ll be racing the regional cup, national cup and some rounds of the European cup! European cup will be a good opportunity for me to compete among the best, discover new trails, new spots, new bike parks and counties, but also a great opportunity to make owlaps videos!

Apart from biking, I’ve been studying graphic design for 5 years now; and making videos is a perfect way to align my passion for cycling and my artistic, designer vision. For those reasons, I had to join the owlaps ambassadors crew!
