"To live is to risk"
Jean-Marc Boivin
Aspiring guide and amateur of the peaks, I spend a good part of the year in the mountains. So I have traces of horrible tan, twisted feet and damaged hands but great memories full of the head.
Few words that define you as an athlete:
Friendship, Sharing, Versatility.

Few words that define you as a person :
Big, Brown, Funny.

What are your passions besides skiing / climbing / mountaineering / trail running ?
I'm already busy ... I love paragliding and windsurfing.

Your best and worst memory in the mountains :
The bestv: a bivouac above the clouds at 5.600 m with friends: sunset on the Nuptse and Amadablam.
The worst : when I ate three times in 3 days Diot and polenta in refuge, last summer.

Why do you feel part of the Millet family ?
I have been part of the Millet team for three years now. Everyone knows each other and the atmosphere is nice. The team working in the offices is top.

What does that mean about you, Rise Up ?
Rise Up is enjoying the mountain and the disciplines we practice as a trip ... A bit like a moment in levitation.

Why do you advise people to go out in the mountains to do outdoor activities ?
Because pizza and beer, when you come back from a great mountain race, they do not have the same flavour...
Achievements & future projects
I have already held 3 spoons balancing on my face. Once, I put my head 1 minute and 30 seconds under the water in my bath ...
