I’ve only been there once to fly, I want to know it better

What is your greatest sporting success?
Top 10 at all the french h&f

4.5 years ago, to go down from alpine route. No thermal at that time, it made me sick.

8 years of alpine climbing.

Have you flown in the Pyrenees before? Do you have a favourite area?
Once for the PWC Targasonne.

Is there anything you like to see (or not) in the route?
As little asl the cloudy/rainy side as possible. We already have the first 80km to run, let’s fly the rest 😉

Apart from flying far and walking little, what will your strategy be during the race?
Blindly following “”those who know better”” hahaha

What does your typical training week consist of?

Flying as much as possible with work.

Running on the flat. With bag …

Crossing from sea to sea !

What worries you the most about the event?
Rain and wind.

How do you know your assistant?
We shared a house for a few years

What are your assistant’s main strengths?
Its competitive mind.

What advice would you ask of one of the race veterans?
How do you pack so fast ?

Anything else you like to comment?
seriously, let us fly, don’t send us to the rainy/cloudy part too much 🙁

    Without them, the X-Pyr wouldn't exist.
