"Being out, riding bikes in summer, skiing in winter and enjoying nature the best way I can." 

I'm a nature lover! So being outside on my bike or skis in winter means a lot to me. Sport is also for me the best way to travel and discover new places and people. I'm also someone who needs to be busy, so it's hard for me to keep on one project and focus 100% on it. So I'm a organiser of an event in my own town, which is supported by VAUDE, the Enduro Jura by Julbo. I also made my studies on the environment fields, that I'm now using to develop mountain bike trails. Last but not least, being in my home place Jura is very restfull and I enjoy it a lot.
