En stage à Chamonix depuis maintenant une semaine, une journée de repos, direction La Clusaz à 1h de route, pour participer au Défi Foly! Un départ sur une piste de 150m de long et une arrivée dans le lac, le but étant de parcourir la plus grande distance possible sur l'eau ! Des conditions plutôt difficiles, sous la pluie puis la neige, dans une eau glacée, mais réchauffée par l'ambiance de l'évènement. Au final, j'ai parcourru 84m sur l'eau avant de couler, avec une paire de skis de confection Zag .. (paire de saut à ski avec une paire de descente collée dessus !). Chacun avait préparé ses propres prototypes, mais à ce jeux là ce sont les monoskis qui s'en sortent le mieux. Une belle ambiance aux côtés du team "ça envoie du gros" des Arcs, feu de camp, tipi et cochon roti sur le feu. Une belle pause avant de reprendre à l'ENSA.

Fin de saison de vitesse, c'était donc l'occasion de rentrer à la maison, dans le sud ouest de la France et de rechausser les crampons de Rugby avec l'Union Athlétique Laloubère. Histoire de retrouver les copains et donner un coup de main pour ce match de barrage , qualificatif pour les finales régionales. Malheureusement on n'a pas pu renverser l'adversaire, plus fort ce jour là, qui se qualifie donc à notre place. L'occasion malgré tout de passer du bon temps sur le pré et clôturer une belle saison de rugby. Nul doute que ces phases finales nous attendent pour les prochaines années.
Prochain objectif pour moi à partir du 21 Avril jusqu'au 4 mai, avec la suite de la formation pour le Diplôme d'Etat de moniteur de ski. La partie Montagne et Freeski nous attend à l'ENSA, à Chamonix !

speed masters vars podium
puce   Le 2 Avril 2014:
Quelle semaine !!! Un nouveau record avec 248,105 km/h !!! et la chute la plus rapide du monde .. 243km/h sur les fesses !!
Une semaine magique pleine de rebondissements. Beau temps dès le premier jour de l'épreuve, il suffisait donc de 3journées pour voir un départ depuis le sommet de la piste. Tous les meilleurs skieurs étaient présents et ce record n'attendait plus que nous. A l'aise dès les premiers entrainements à plus de 200km/h la course tenait toutes ses promesses. 3ème à l'issu de la première journée, 2runs étaient prévus le lendemain, déjà au dessus du "rocher" (côte 230), et entre le "rocher" et le sommet (cote 240).
2ème à l'issu du premier passage, je me met une énorme tarte sur la demi finale en passant les cellules à plus de 243km/h sur les fesses. Après réflexion, j'ai eu beaucoup de chance! En effet, j'ai voulu "accélérer" à l'intérieur des cellules au moment où je prenais un trou qui embarquait et éjectait mon ski. J'ai réussi malgré tout à freiner, les fesses au sol, sur le ski qui me restait et contrôler sensiblement ma chute pour éviter le contact à pleine vitesse avec les filets de sécurité (comparables à des murs à cette vitesse..). Une sensation horrible, l'impression de se faire brûler sur place! Au final, une très grosse frayeur, de belles brûlures 2e et 3e degrés, des hématomes sur tout le corps, un matériel explosé (skis, fixations, casque, combinaison) mais aucune fracture ! Et je termine la journée avec la 2ème vitesse malgré mon passage sur les fesses ! Seul l'Italien S.Origone est devant moi, et je bat mon record personnel..sans les skis! La nuit allait être longue, et après consultation avec les médecins je décidais de voir mon état (qui devait empirer) le lendemain matin, voir si je pouvais ne serait ce qu'enfiler ma combinaison ...
Après une nuit très agitée, sous anti-inflammatoires, crèmes diverses, l'appel à une personne qui a pu "m'enlever le feu" par téléphone (merci Denis!) je devais prendre une décision quand à la suite de ma course. La douleur était vive, mais constante, pas de "pics" plus intenses, et je réussis à enfiler ma combinaison, en serrant bien les dents. Denis avait fait des miracles.. La douleur augmentait une fois en position, avec le frottement de la combinaison, mais c'était 50sc à tenir, depuis le sommet de cette piste, qui m'a tant fait rêver depuis mes 6ans! C'est donc avec une légère appréhension, mais déterminé, que je pouvais rejoindre le départ de cette grande finale. Après une montée de pression au sommet, je m'élançais avec une vitesse de 248,105km/h, loin du run parfait mais heureux de la vitesse et d'avoir tenu malgré la douleur. 3ème place à l'arrivée derrière le tout nouveau Recordman du Monde S.Origone (ITA) qui l'emporte avec 252,454 km/h et son frère Ivan avec 248,5 km/h. L'Autrichien K.Schrottshamer, vainqueur de la Coupe du Monde cette année, termine à la 4ème place avec 243,9km/h et le record d'Autriche! Côtés Français, Simon Billy 7ème améliore son record avec 240,6km/h, mon frère Jimmy 11ème avec 238km/h (14 de + que son précédent record ..) et le tout jeune Louis Billy réalise 235km/h en 1/2 finale mais ne prends pas le départ du sommet pour continuer de se préserver, d'apprendre à son rythme, sans se brûler les ailes ! La relève est bien présente. Merci à tous !

puce   January,2 2014:
Beautiful new year to all! Not the time to let go itself, it is quickly necessary to return to the training.. Of the blow session of physical Preparatory on December 31st, and resumed on January 2nd. The wound is not really "adjusted", even if I give myself to 100% during the sessions of body-building, running or swimming, the quadricipital tendon always hurts me and delays my preparation. The tear (3cm seems not to be more than an ugly scar, but the embarrassment remains. Concerning ski, I am going to have to wait another more week before re-putting. It is going to be very difficult to be ready for the World Cup opening in France (Vars). A choice will thus have to be made in the next days: Or the wound do not hamper me any more and I am 100% ready to participate in the World cup; or some doubts remain and I shall participate in downhill category , the amateur one, more "comfortable", in which any aerodynamic equipment is banned (profiled helmet, 2m40 skis, special poles, plasticized suit), without racing really completely, just to find sensations; Or my balance sheets do not progress and shall be forced to cancel the travel
The morale, him, remains good!

The ski season over, I was able to come back to the rugby championship and compete for the last games of the season with my local team. Qualified to play the final phases of the "Armagnac Bigorre" championship, the team managed to raise itself in final and I had the privilege to be able to help them to to gain the long-awaited shield in the term of a rough and tight game! A trophy which comes to reward the beautiful season of the team, unconquered during the preliminary tours and to honor the club and their managers, "dark workers" for years. A very beautiful party to close this season. Surfing, stand up paddle and beach rugby are now going to occupy my weekends!

Back home since 4 days now. We take advantage of a break of more than a week before leaving to train for the last stop of 2012 World cup in Verbier (Switzerland(Swiss)) and especially for Speed Master (high-speed professional race), where a tower was settled on the summit of a railway to touch the track with already more than 180 kph... This break is also the opportunity to meet the association " 1 MAILLOT POUR LA VIE ", which allows children sick and hospitalized to meet sportsmen, to spend a privileged moment with their company, in the hospital or sometimes on playing fields. It thus was the opportunity to meet in the hospital of Tarbes, together with pro rugby players of the TPR (here C.Siale and M.Etcheverria) and of basketball pro players of the TGB (here A.M Cata-Chitiga and F.Lepron) to spend one after noon with the child; I also meet them on Saturday for the french rugby championship game TPR-Bourgouin where I gave the start with Dorian, the young champion fan of rugby and of the "Stade Toulousain", which fights bravely in front of the disease since 7month to be back on the rugby trainings... A beautiful after noon for an important cause ! "1maillot pour la vie" (Thanks to Steph and Lucile!)
