Versatile, talented and constantly curious, French skier Leo likes to go big in the backcountry. Splitting his time between the Freeride World Tour and filming eye-popping documentaries like Ushba and Hunza he also manages to find moments to read. Here are three of his favourite autobiographies.
Open, An Autobiography by Andre Agassi
“He never wanted to become a professional tennis player and even less a star, but he won eight Grand Slams and one Olympic title without a real love for the game. I love this book because I’ve always thought that in individual sports, like tennis or skiing, you can succeed no matter where you come from or your interests. Here’s a good example, with a taste of rock ’n’ roll.
Life, by Keith Richards
“If you want to know a bit more about The Rolling Stones, I think Keith Richards has enough stories in his book. The beginnings of rock ’n’ roll sounded fantastic.”
My Life in Climbing by Ueli Steck
“It’s a great book about Ueli and his alpinist life. I love how he approached the mountains, the way he talks about them and his story about the South Face of Annapurna, even if it is totally crazy!”
