Didier's word

Why such a sport as alpine skiing? In fact it is a passion that my parents passed on to me and I soon became extremely enthusiast. I had the chance and the opportunity to make a job out of it, which is also a kid’s dream… Later, that everyday quest for thrills and challenges has become a source of daily pleasures! The wish to share that passion as well as these intense and hard moments, as everyone else does, pushes me everyday to give the best out of myself!!!
