Mathieu Faivre, Isola 2000’s outstanding rider
Born in Isola 2000, in the most famous of the ski resorts of the Côte d’Azur, Mathieu Faivre grew up beside his grandfather ski-instructor. His mother works in the resort and his grandfather is a voluntary worker with the Club des Sports of Isola. Thanks to his family heritage firmly rooted in the Alpine world, the skier from the Alpes-Maritimes was named the future star of downhill skiing before becoming double world champion in Giant slalom and Parallel slalom. Matthieu skis in Savoie and Switzerland but particularly likes skiing in the southern French Alps which offer hot ends of season and a radiant sun. With the Mediterranean not far away, the skier loves the fact that he can spend afternoons by the sea after a few intense ski training sessions. Cycling, golf, tennis, hockey, volleyball, … Mathieu loves sport and does quite a few! Even though the Alps are his main playground, the World Cup circuits have taken him off on many trips, among them the runs of the United States, Japan and even Croatia. Before trying his luck in the 2022 Olympic Games, Mathieu will have to play his cards right during the next downhill ski races.
