MY BIKE SETUP

Most often, I ride the 2018 Scott Gambler 710, size M. That’s an ideal bike for downhill trails, big jumps and bike park laps! I also ride the 2012 Commencal Meta V3 for Enduro trails, and an old Commencal Absolut for the BMX pumptrack!

MORE ABOUT ME

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

I'm 25yo, born and raised near Grenoble, French Alps. Currently living in Annecy, which is still located in the Northern French Alps! 

I started mountain biking very young with my dad, then with my friends. I began to ride downhill with an old hardtail bike, that I literally destroyed over the years! I then got my first full suspension mountain bike: a 2007 Commencal Furious, that I bought when I was 16yo with all my savings and the money I earned doing landscaping work during summer holidays. This bike brought me to my first DH races and bike park laps in the French Alps!

I then owned several other mountain bikes: downhill bikes, enduro bikes and dirt jump bikes. I was in a downhill club for 2 years, and then I took the opportunity to ride and discover new spots over in France, Italy and Canada!

I always liked to make videos. In my younger age, I was, let’s say, the filmmaker of the crew… Making short bike edit and ski edit with an old Panasonic “HD” camera. I started to make GoPro videos in 2012 when I first launched a Youtube Channel called "My GoPro" where I used to post ski videos and mtb videos. And some of them had quite a lot of views! More than 250.000 for the most popular I think! Haha. Anyway! I always had that passion for filming, riding and sharing! And today I keep doing it through owlaps videos!  

I studied marketing in several business schools across France, Scotland and England, where I specialized myself in digital marketing and social media. I then jumped into work life, working for the Salomon brand in digital marketing and ecommerce. Today, I started my own business, working as a freelancer for several clients. And... I created owlaps.
