Laurent jumped Chapeau de Napoléon next to Dent-de-l'Arclusaz with his onesie tracksuit and impacted in mid-track, presumably without pulling. He had been recently training mostly with his wingsuit but saying he was not current at tracking anymore would be largely implausible. This jump is a modern very positive "onesie tracking" one, lacking any sort of margin for human or environmental suboptimal parameters.
Lolo was an extremely talented jumper as well as a bright minded enthusiast, thinking out of the box and coming out with innovative design concepts. His uncommon approach lead him to build his own tracksuits dubbed the "Lolo Suits". He inspired many and showed the community what what possible to achieve through the concept of single piece tracking suits (onesies). Recognized as one of the best trackers out there he achieved many lines that were before believed to be specific to wingsuits only, and notably tracked the Brévent exit in summer 2015 with his friend Veush.
