His motto is “live and let live” and the Swiss rider, who could be described as a bon vivant, did not get where he is today by chance. With help from his father, the young Pius scrambled into the saddle aged four. He trained as a butcher and then decided to become a professional rider. He was part of the Swiss bronze-medal team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics on Nobless M and also a member of the team that won the European Championships in 2009. He held the number one position for several months in 2010. His impeccable riding style, his perfect notion of the training and his enigmatic personality has earned him the sympathy of the public and has positioned him as one of the greatest Swiss rider of all time. Always decisive when it comes to realize a performance in the major events, he has now a good horse team comprising PSG Future, Toulago, Quidam du Vivier, or Sixtine de Vaines, that will ensure a very promising future.
