Luc Alphand is a true sportsman, everything he touches turns to gold. After mastering the world of skiing, he became a racecar driver, sports commentator and sailor.

When Luc Alphand hung up his skis in 1997, the child of Serre-Chevalier was at the top of his game. Between 1995 and 1997, Luc Alphand won twelve victories in the World Cup. At the age 32, he won the Crystal Globe and was elected Champion of Champions by the French newspaper l’Équipe.

Deciding to live life even faster, in 1998, he raced his first Paris-Dakar. After winning the World Cup rally-raids T1 in 1999, in 2001 and 2002 he won the Rally of Morocco in T2. Next, Luc Alphand came in first in the 2006 Paris-Dakar driving a Mitsubishi accompanied by co-pilot Gilles Picard. He ranked second in 2007. From 2001 to 2008, he also created his own team Luc Alphand Aventures to drive the 24 Heures du Mans.

In 2009 Luc was victim of a motorcycle accident during a rally in Auvergne when he suffered a spinal injury. He was taken to hospital in an emergency by helicopter. He started a new challenge, competing in the Transat Jacques Vabre with Marc Tiercelin in 2011.

Born a leader, champion, businessman, journalist, Luc shares his experiences and passion through inspirational conferences. He transmits his motivation, leadership, and ability to succeed to those who have the privilege of meeting him.
