Damien Desbrosses

Coming from a small village of Oisans near Alpe d'Huez, I currently live in Morzine in the Portes du Soleil.

Before I got to cycling, I was passionate about skiing and snowboarding, which I have been practicing since I was a child! Completely addicted, I made it my job by becoming an ESF instructor. In summer, I switch my equipment to exercise my second job as a carpenter; and to ride my bikes!!

I discovered mountain biking quite late during a race in Oz en Oisans, where I was a Marshall volunteer. My biking story started here, at 15 years old, and my head full of dreams! I started riding downhill on my Rockrider 6.3, instant love!

Shortly after, I did many years of competition within the Revel ROC VTT club on the regional, national and European circuits; until I end up racing some DH world cups thanks to the Dorval AM team!

Regarding wheel size, I like to ride them all since I now ride in DH (27.5 "), enduro (29"), dirt (26 "), BMX, and trial (20")!

In 2019, I raced the Maxiavalanche circuit in order to film my runs for owlaps. Having had a lot of fun behind the camera, I decided to invest myself fully in the owlaps project from 2020 to bring you along with me and get you to discover all the spots that I have already had the chance to ride in recent years. Thanks to the videos, you will just have to choose your favorites, without the risk of unpleasant surprises!

See you on the trails!
