While I am not working on the Physics of Active Hot Stars, I appreciate running on the country side of the Alpes-Côte d’Azur area.

With some participation to various races...

But with my “old” age (over 40 ;-) ) it’s getting harder and harder for me to run on very long distances (it hurts my knees !) and I prefer to ride my two bicycles:

A Cannondale Road Warrior 600:

And a (black)
Giant Trance Mountain Bike fully equipped with DT-SWISS components (Fork, wheels, Rear Shock, etc...) for around10 kgs !

And from time to time, I am also participating to local races (Lachens-Mer, Transvesubienne, Raid des Paillons, Bigreen, etc...)

A nice view over Caussols, with myself on my Cannondale Prophet.


I am also President of the
VTT Club du Bar sur Loup and I am teaching how to ride a Mountain Bike to adults and children every saturday morning...

I also like practicing
multi-activities and various sports:

Since I am now at the
Observatoire de Nice on the « Mont Gros » I have to commute
every day from
Le Bar sur Loup to Nice (102 kms per day !).

Thus I have first bought a very Nice VESPA 300 from
ESPRIT SCOOTER in Grasse.

If you are looking for a very nice and competent VESPA dealer you can visit
ESPRIT SCOOTER in Grasse.


But since I have also a lot of Highway and other fast roads to drive I have bought in 2011 a Triumph Street Triple R which is a very nice and powerful roadster !
