I was born in the snow; therefore I started skiing very naturally. Before I started competition, I enjoyed skiing and I loved to have fun. That is the reason why I started to compete pretty late compared to other athletes. It took me some time to be among the best and I am proud to have reached such a level. I decided to retire form ski racing after 15 years while I was at the top (winner of the overall Ski Worldcup). However, the “speed-chromosome” seems to be particularly well implanted in me and I have been very soon seduced by the thrills that I felt on rally competitions to which I had the chance to participate as a guest. In order to begin this new sport, I created the "Luc Alphand Adventure" Team, a structure, which allowed me to finance my first car, practices and races. Then, I officially raced 2 years for Renault followed by 2 seasons for BMW XRaid. Finally I spent 6 years as official pilot for Mitsubishi in Rally Raid until they decided, in 2009, to stop their sports activity. In June 2009, I had a serious motocross crash with vertebrae lesions, which I am progressively recovering from.
