Comme le grand poète Eminem l'a si joliment dit, « La réussite est mon unique p***** de solution, pas l'échec. » C'est donc avec un leitmotiv similaire en tête que la division ski de HEAD s'est attelée à la tâche – et quelle tâche ! Au vu des tentatives précédentes, il fallait tout recommencer à zéro.

    Frame Of Mind avec Sam Kuch

L'idée que certaines choses sont simplement écrites et que certaines personnes sont là pour faire exactement ce qu'elles font à un instant précis prend alors tout son sens. On peut les envier ou l'accepter et se laisser porter.
