Jason Lamy Chappuis a vécu, ce samedi, le scenario idéal sur ses terres de Chaux-Neuve pour l'ultime compétition de combiné nordique de sa carrière avec un 8è titre de champion de France ajouté à son immense palmarès ! Sébastien Lacroix, l'autre Bois d'Amonier désormais jeune retraité, lui aussi, s'est finalement classé au pied du podium.

Le décor n’était pas totalement idéal, mais la conclusion l’est parfaitement. Ce samedi, à Chaux-Neuve, où il a effectué ses premiers sauts sur les tremplins de la Côte Feuillée il y a 20 ans maintenant  : c’est sous une fine pluie continue, et devant près d’un millier de fidèles supporters encore, que Jason Lamy Chappuis a symboliquement bouclé son immense carrière sur un ultime titre de champion de France de combiné nordique…

Ou la formidable destinée du roi Jason, jusqu'au bout  ! Sans entraînement spécifique depuis deux semaines, le désormais jeune retraité de 28 ans s'est offert sa 8ème couronne nationale , avec 10" d'avance sur le 2ème : son pote du Haut-Doubs, François Braud ! Et le vice-champion du monde individuel, le mois dernier, le confirme : c’est tout sauf un amical cadeau d’adieu de sa part, « Jason m’a surpris par ses ressources » , sublimé une ultime fois par ce site de Chaux-Neuve si cher et symbolique à son cœur.

"J’avais vraiment encore plus envie de finir en beauté, surtout ici à Chaux-Neuve !"

Jason Lamy Chappuis savoure pleinement ce clap de fin rêvé  ! «  Avec le manque de jambes que j’avais ces derniers temps, je ne pensais pas beaucoup à ce titre. Et du coup, je suis très, très content . Car, poursuit le Jurassien, j’avais encore plus envie de tout donner pour cette dernière course. J’avais vraiment envie de finir en beauté  : il y avait beaucoup d’ambiance et de supporters pour un championnat de France, et forcément, ça m’a aidé à tout donner  ». Et Jason Lamy Chappuis de conclure : « voilà, finir sur un titre de champion de France, je peux pas rêver mieux … » , même si hier, sur la ligne d’arrivée de Chaux-Neuve : toujours pas de larme sur son visage, publiquement en tous cas, comme tout au long de sa formidable carrière. «  Non, c ’est plus l’émotion du travail bien fait jusqu’au bout, jusqu’à la dernière course de la dernière saison  » , précise finalement le jeune retraité en or.
