MANON MICHAUD

FREERIDE SKIING

FRANCE

My first race was at Chamonix, my home town, at the Freeride Junior Tour Dakine 3*. I lost my line and could not find the line I’d planned earlier. I decided to go back to the same spot for another race, the French Freeride Series Junior 2*, and I came second, without having done any particular jump. I was really motivated to take part in the circuit, even though I had school and I couldn’t dedicate myself completely to the competitions. The following year I won at Piau Engaly in the Pyrenes. I am loaded, I feel good and I’m feeling confident, I count on doing my best and discovering new slopes!
