ABOUT

I started riding bikes at the age of 4 and since then, I never stopped. Being young, I practiced pretty much every sport possible (soccer, karate, triathlon, downhill skiing, basketball, skateboard, etc.) and during my teen years, I focused mostly on triathlon. However, a continuous foot injury forced me to rethink my implication in the sport.

At the age of 18, after a couple months of doing adventure races and training for fun, a friend invited me to a cyclocross race and I got hooked instantly ! The year after that, I did a somewhat full cross season with my friends and that made me realize that I wanted to start racing mountain bikes again.

Last time I had raced in mountain bike, I was 12 years old. So I concentrated all my efforts into MTB in 2013 and after the first season, I was lucky enough to sign with the LUNA Pro Team. Since then, I put my energy into racing MTB and CX with the team and I’ve never had so much fun !
