Riders in this news : Dylan Florit
Dylan Florit, gives us some faith for the next generation of freeskiers. He is only 15 years old, and he's already on the biggest national and Europeans competitions. He has his own style and real freeride skills. Last season, he finished 3rd position at the Junior Freeride competition of Verbier and went on a ski trip in Japan with Enak. It would be likely to think that it is only some other usual stuff when you dad is a guide at La Grave...We went to Deux Alpes to ask him some questions to know better about how a kid its age manages both freeski and schooling.
Describe your school, how can we get in and how does it work? Dylan: My school, we get in according to our sportive results. You must be in the French top 5 of your category. Because we are spending our time outside in trainings, competitions and ski camps all winters, we get our diploma in 4 years instead of 3. I am now completing my second year which equals to the first year in other common schools. Before winter, I attend school like other kids, but I train and I take additional classes at night to make sure I don't miss anything during the ski season.
How do you manage yours classes, your trainings and your competitions all in the same time? Dylan: During winter, school sends us homework with predefined deadlines (often 15 days), but they're flexible when we need extensions. Otherwise, we train almost all the time, even on summer time and before ski season starts on glaciers like at Saas Fee in Sweden, and at Deux Alpes in France.
What are your projects for your studies after Lycée? Dylan: After Lycée, I would like to join the IUT of Annecy so that I can continue high-level skiing
Your ski goals and projects? Dylan: My projects for the future; to be in the top 10 of France and to participate to Junior's Freestyle World Championships, and to have fun skiing!
