Brice Roger, the feisty one / Downhill skiing, racing

Brice is a force of nature whose energy seems to come from laughter and good humour and whose passion for skiing is as strong as ever. He won his first medal in March 2015 in front of his home crowd in Meribel, at the World Cup final, with a 3rd place in the Super G. Knee injuries have cut short his season several times but this has not affected his love of racing… or his enthusiasm!

Tess Ledeux, the precocious talent / Freestyle Skiing, slopestyle

If the élite of women’s freestyle skiing are mostly aged over 20, the younger skiers with a thirst for victory are training hard to change that. This is certainly the case for Tess Ledeux who was French slopestyle champion at just 15. Noted for her ease and determination to jump high that surpassed even that of her male counterparts, Tess was rapidly ready for the big league. She shares her desire to win with her cousin, Kévin Rolland.

Antoine Adelisse, the creative one / Ski freestyle, slopestyle

Always in search of new places to play, Antoine soon dropped the more traditional disciplines to devote himself to freestyle skiing and develop his own style in the snow parks. In 2014, aged just 16, he qualified for the Sochi Winter Olympics, the first Games to include slopestyle. A serious knee injury kept him off the slopes for winter 2016 but he came back more determined than ever in 2017 and had one of his most successful seasons.

Kévin Roland, the unshakeable one / Ski freestyle, half pipe

Multiple winner of the X Games and Olympic medallist, this great freestyle skier needs no introduction... Kévin Roland flies rather than skis. He invents new tricks, like the double cork 1260, and works on them in training until he nails them. This has caused some impressive falls, but he always gets back up. Away from competition, he enjoys making freestyle skiing videos, an opportunity for him to offer his many fans stunning images that combine adrenalin, precision and technical prowess. You can see him in Fast Forward I & II and his latest film, “Oh My Ghost”, wild chases across La Plagne where everyone holds their breath!

Ollie Davies, the british "frog" / Ski freestyle, skicross

One of four siblings, Ollie started skiing in Montchavin – Les Coches when he was just 2 years old. The family based in London used to come on holiday to La Plagne twice a year. After falling in love with Montchavin, Ollie’s parents decided to move there for good when Ollie was 8 and then there was no looking back: he, his brother and two sisters are now set to stay in this lovely corner of the Tarentaise with its amazing quality of mountain life. An avid skier, Ollie is a member of the Montchavin – Les Coches Club des Sports. Over time, his desire to specialize in skicross has become clearer and, when he started competing at FIS level, the La Plagne athlete joined the British ski team. It is under the joint colours of the Union Jack and La Plagne’s red woolly hat that he will compete in the Olympic Games in Beijing, in February 2022.

Romain Heinrich, the perfectionist / Bobsleigh

Romain only got into top-level sport when he was 19, but rapidly became one of France’s top shot putters. 2011 marked a turning point in his sporting career when he moved into bobsleigh and, encouraged by his skill as a pusher, joined Loïc Costerg’s team taking part in the Sochi Olympics. This wasn’t enough for Romain, however, who decided to move to the front of the bob by becoming a pilot. He has responded to the new challenge with results that meant he was selected as pilot for the 2-man bob event at the Pyeongchang Olympics where he came in 13th with his teammate, Dorian Hauterville.

Agathe Bessard, the explosive one / Skeleton

Agathe has grown up on the ice. When she was very young, she was already on a luge on the La Plagne track, then at 14 she went down headfirst on a skeleton.

Margot Boch, an inherited talent / 2-woman bob and monobob

Her grandfather was a pusher and French champion with his teammates in 1959, her dad was a pilot: in the Boch family, bobsleigh is as much a passion as a tradition that is handed down from one generation to the next! An ex-competition gymnast, Margot first tried the luge on La Plagne’s bobsleigh track, where she was quickly spotted thanks to her talent and her physical and mental qualities. Aged just 20 years old, Margot has been the pilot for the French team (no less!) since 2018. In November 2019, she won a superb second place in the European cup in monobob

At only 19 years old, Louna already stood out for his intuitive and obsessive climbing skills. In competition, he surprises with his daring choices and originality, never conceding anything to his competitors. It is no longer necessary to prove that in La Plagne, ice is our 5th element.

Alexis Jay, le fonceur / Ski freestyle, skicross

Originaire de Macot, l’un des principaux villages situés au pied de La Plagne, Alexis entre au Club des Sports de La Plagne à 10 ans. Une très belle opportunité pour cet amoureux de sa station, qui apprécie particulièrement la variété des terrains de jeu entre haute altitude, forêts et alpages. L’un de ses meilleurs souvenirs d’enfance ? La descente à ski depuis le Mont-Saint-Jacques (2 407 m) jusqu’à Macot en vallée, avec le Club des Sports.
