maurice usepagy2My parents practicing regularly the cross-country skiing and walking in the mountains, I quickly took taste mountain rides and fun exercise enduring nature.


I also spent my first stars in alpine skiing in St Gervais with a friend and his dad ski monitor, but I've not hooked to the competition. However, I long have fun to the madman in powdery descents of the Flaine resort until I devoted fully to cross-country skiing. Recently, I me tries to Telemark skiing, compromise between freedom of movement and happiness to have wide skis with metal carts.


 I started to practice cross-country in school organized by "Les Charmilles" to THYEZ primary school. Having taken taste to this activity joining endurance, winter sports and outdoors, at the age of 11, I was hired at the Ski-Club of AGY - St SIGISMOND for which I remain faithful. My club coach operated my desire to learn and work this sport. I have progressed from year to year. My teacher of College, responsible for the managed class Sport of College Camille Claudel of Marignier, supported me and accepted happy that I rest on Monday morning rather than go in sport at 8 am.


  ronde-nocturne megève02After significant results, I joined the "lycée Renée Dayve" ski-studies of "le Fayet" to Passy and Mont-Blanc ski Committee, at the foot of the Mont-Blanc. My first year in the Ski Committee of the Mont-Blanc, I become younger French champion 2002. I was among my best moments of my young years during these 4 years of high school (Baccalaureat in 4 years with studies development) with my fellow of the Committee. Our teachers were also well supported us. My list is completed by my French young and Junior champion titles. In parallel, I am selected in French Ski Team ; I represents the colors of the France in Alpen Continental Cup and take taste to the international podiums, imitating the great on the World Cup. I spent super moments with my classmates of the French group and especially when it brought a historic bronze medal the relay of the Junior World Championships in Rovaniemi 2005.


 mondejunior04rovaniemi2005After my Baccalaureat, with a result slightly below my capabilities (not quite worked at the right time, already too invests in my sport), I then returned to the University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, where I am continuing my studies of biology. The passage in category senior season 2006-07 was rude but I go out rather well, I'm attending my first World Cup in La Clusaz. The following year, I get my first international selection for the early stages of World Cup. Then, my first World Cup podium in relay (the most beautiful because shared), in La Clusaz in 2008 with all supporters.


 IMGP0001In July 2009, I get a contract with the administration of customs ; this is a great relief for my family who has financially supported to me since my early and is always here morally with me. It is my independence and the consideration for any investment to arrive at this level that I win. I am now considered professional. The year following, season Olympic Vancouver 2010, passed ready to realize a dream with our French Team beautiful, but also my first World Cup victory to Lathi on a 30 km pursuit. In the spring 2011, I get my degree, bachelor of biology ; studies and sport high level, it is possible.


Since all young, I also practice running in competition where I started with School gatherings once again. I was rather gifted for this sport which is an integral part of my preparation. I started mountaineering races in my junior years, and then I joined CMI Tullins (near Grenoble) athletics Club in 2007. Wishing to be classified in the French mountaineering Championships, being on Grenoble for my studies, one of my professors proposed me to integrate this dynamic club I represent on the mountain races on which I am pleased the summer.
