Dual sports: mountainbiking and speed flying in Annecy


In between catalog shoots and big trips to far away lands, I managed to go shoot a cool little project: with the ever-keen Tito Tomasi (remember Aiguillette des Houches) and the very talented Antoine Taillefer (who I happened to shoot taking off during the 2013 Red Bull Elements), we hiked toward la Tournette, a popular mountain with gorgeous views over the Annecy lake and the Mont Blanc range. The idea was to combine mountainbiking and mini-wing (a tiny version of a paraglider which flies a lot faster).

With big time constraints, tons of people on the trail and Antoine needing to hike back up to take off after each attempt, it was definitely a very challenging project, but we did manage to get a couple of fun images. Enjoy!
