I am infinitely grateful to my partners who have allowed me to participate in the Raid Passion Désert 2022!

I contacted Jean-Pierre Goy, with whom I had completed an offroad riding training last spring.

The training went really well, and I must admit that I left that day feeling quite proud of myself. I think the guys in the training, seeing me arrive at just 50kg, were a bit apprehensive at first but eventually realized that I wasn’t backing down!

The day began with exercises on the private terrain, accessible after a few minutes of riding from the school. After a good meal in the sun, we applied the theory on the surrounding trails. In the end, I could keep up with everyone without any problems, and we even enjoyed a little one-on-one break while waiting for the rest of the team!! Never judge a book by its cover!

Jean-Pierre is now supporting me in the adventure, and I am very happy about it!!!

I highly recommend his riding school located in Flévieu.

For over ten years, the team has been helping riders of all levels, from novice to expert, to improve their motorcycle skills, both off-road and on the road.

After an incredible and equally impressive career, Jean-Pierre Goy created his school to share his experience and the keys to being confident on a motorcycle. He provides his teachings and methods so that every rider, regardless of the terrain and weather, can be confident and safe on their motorcycle.

He has surrounded himself with instructors to accompany you during your courses and help you progress safely, no matter your level.

Thanks to his private terrain equipped with various zones, you can evolve safely on different surfaces. You can progress on 5 hectares through various exercises adapted to each topology and its specificities.

“Recognized experts, the two founders, Eric and José, each have 30 years of experience in blowing quartz and other glasses. In July 2013, driven by their former clients, they embarked on the entrepreneurial adventure and developed the creation of a company that offers a complete range of products around the quartz used by cutting-edge industries.

In 2014, they were winners of the Réseau Entreprendre Savoie. Supported by the Economic Agency of Savoie, which directed them to the CleanSpace building, offering all the advantages to develop NovAlpQuartz’s activity. The Société d’Aménagement de Savoie supports the project in the construction of the workshop, which is currently the most modern in France in the repair and cleaning of quartz and SIC.

This is how our blowers, who have built their expertise and reputation in the service of various prestigious companies, apply their know-how to the fields of microelectronics, photovoltaics, laboratories, or defense.”

Thanks to Elodie, I had the pleasure of meeting Jérôme Bas, the manager of Universal Ride, the KTM, Husqvarna, and GasGas dealership in Grenoble, along with his brother. Jérôme participated in the Morocco Rally last year and is preparing for the Dakar Rally next year.

I visited the dealership at the beginning of the month and marveled at all the beautiful motorcycles and the colorful array of enduro gear! Jérôme also shared his experience at the Morocco Rally, making me dream of my own adventures. I had the chance to see his rally bike—a true marvel!

I entrusted my motorcycle to him to make it look its best and be ready not only for the Lyon 2-Wheel Show but also for my training in the few months left before the big departure!

If you live in the Grenoble region or are just passing through, make a detour to his dealership—you won’t be disappointed!

Marion’s driving school, Jacquier-Formation, is a family-owned establishment located in Sallanches.

I obtained my A2 motorcycle license with Michel, Marion’s father, and it went exceptionally well from start to finish. Michel was very patient and helped me obtain the coveted license on my first attempt!

I also underwent the A to A2 license transition with Thierry, who has taken over from Michel since his retirement. Once again, the training turned into a very enjoyable day!

It was only natural for me to ask Marion to join me on this adventure, and I am thrilled that she agreed. I highly recommend reaching out to them if you need to obtain a license!

Additionally, they have a private training track with a breathtaking view of Mont Blanc! What more could you ask for?

Marion’s driving school offers training for:

  • Car driving license (Category B),
