12 Months, 12 Stories with Jerome Clementz

Episode 6: Jerome's better half gives her perspective on life with Clementz

What’s it like to live with Jerome Clementz? Chances are, you never asked yourself that. Well, this video tells the story and if you dig the nouns, verbs and past participles…well, Jerome’s better half, Pauline, shares her thoughts on the experience.

” How do you imagine Jérôme’s day to day life?” asks Pauline.

“As his girlfriend, it is not easy every day…lots of mountain biking from dawn to dusk!

As soon as he wakes up, his smartphone is already in his hand: first social media check (we never know if somebody was riding during the night…).

During the breakfast, he is not really here but focuses on reading the mountain biking magazines…and even after (in the toilet) !

After a “quick” session on the Internet (certainly he missed some videos in the morning), he prepares to go riding. Ready to climb the mountain to reach the highest point (if not, he will be disappointed from the rest of the day).
After the ride, he always cleans his bike (why he doesn’t clean the house as he cleans the bike?) and check if everything goes well (he tells me that he is a good mechanic..).

Some rest to eat something, and I think he starts to shake (maybe not enough bike..). It is time to go riding the pump track.

I think he has too much energy, so I tell him to rest a little bit, and guess what? His first choice is in front of the DH world cup replay with beer and friends…

Sometimes it’s a bit too much …

And I am sure a lot of girls understand me, but there is also a lot of good time living this life!”
