Last fall I was contacted by Red Bull to produce a 5-min portrait of an athlete that recently joined the Red Bull alpine skiing dream team with the likes of Lindsey Vonn, Aksel Lund Svindal… A few days later I was standing on the glacier in Tignes, along with the French skiing team, documenting French phenomenon Alexis Pinturault doing what he does best: go fast on skis !

After a hectic month of January with 4 events taking place back-to-back, the winter season and the Freeride World Tour are now well underway.

It is with great excitement that I saw Pierre Vaultier take gold in the Sochi olympics in Snowboard cross. I’ve had the pleasure to work with him on a 13 min feature for Red Bull France in 2012, as he was going through a very long and tough recovery after smashing his ankle on a World Cup race. Just as he was getting ready for Sochi he tore his ACL last december. The same fighting spirit that I could document during his previous injury allowed him to compete nonetheless. What a story, and what a great champion. Pierre is also a great character, very professional and kind, so seeing him accomplish his dream of an olympic gold medal has been even more special. Well done Pierre.
