MY BIKE SETUP

I ride a 2018 Scott Genius 940 in medium size, for most of the time. This is the best mountain bike to ride secret tracks that are only accessible to bikes. You can ride any trail, any time with this Gun. I also ride an old Scott YZ O.3 for BMX track and pumptrack. Learn more about my Enduro bike setup, my gears and tools by clicking the below button.

MY FILM SETUP

Most often, I use a GoPro Hero 5 mounted on a Evo SS gimbal using a chest-mount to record MTB trails, with the exception of races where I mount it on my helmet (I feel more comfortable, and it might be safer too… 😉 ). To learn more about all my camera gear, click the button bellow!

MORE ABOUT ME

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

I'm 18 yo, born in Paris. I've lived in Annecy for 15 years, located in the Northern French Alps.

Since I was a kid, I have practiced a lot of sports in clubs, especially skiing and hockey. I also started mountain biking at a very young age with my dad and uncle. I started riding using an old Mongoose 24'' that I cracked. It was wrecked!! Next, I got my first full suspension bike. It was a 2006 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp that I bought when I was 15yo.

With this bike, I discovered how cool buddy biking was. I had to stack all of my summer money to buy this toy. At the time, all my friends already had an Enduro and it was impossible to follow them. Two years ago, I decided to really get into Enduro and buy a YT Capra Al. I then enrolled in my local Enduro club for 1 year, it gave me the opportunity to meet people and participate in many races. I've progressed with this bike and that's what allowed me to become an owlaps ambassador.

Over the past two years, I discovered what bike park days were like, but also how much fun you could have on your bike. I always liked the beautiful pictures to take while mountain biking and that's why I started shooting some clips with ride buddies. Last year, my friend from Born to Jump filmed me a lot, which helped me gaining experience in the audiovisual world of cycling. The long days of shooting have encouraged me to push my limits a little more and to discover great new spots. However, what I prefer the most in Enduro is to ride English tracks with my friends that we shape ourselves. I love muddy rides and I'm really happy when I'm going to the bike park in those conditions. Nevertheless, I always had a passion for MTB movies and riding. And today, I keep on doing it through Owlaps videos!

I am currently studying Physical and Measurement at Le Creusot and I would like to continue my studies further in Engineering. Except on various summer jobs to earn money to pay my bikes I never really had a real job. I'm just a student. That's also why I have a lot of time to ride.
