WATCH: French Speedrider Conquer Alpine Resort in Thrilling Paragliding Stunt

No stuntman needed!

Renowned speedrider Valentin Delluc is at it again: and this time, he’s taking on the deserted alpine resort Avoriaz in Morzine, France.

A specialty of paragliding, speedriding uses a compact, swift paraglider wing to zip up and down massive heights like mountains.

From chairlift cables to barrels, to the tips of buildings, Delluc turns the resort into his own playground. The speedrider pulled off breathtaking stunts, including midair rolls and 360s, that he’s never done before.

Watch the video below:

The complexities of the resort’s design make it a huge test for even the best speed riders.

Valentin Delluc first paraglided at 11. His academic interest in psychology complemented his desire to take to the skies, finding freedom. Speedriding, which mixes freeskiing and paragliding, became the perfect fit for Delluc. Since then, the athlete won many competitions and dominated the Speed Riding Tour in 2014.
