Contin made his international speedskating debut at the Speed Skating World Cup in December 2005. In January 2007 he competed at an international allround tournament for the first time, finishing 17th at the European Championships held at Collalbo.
In January 2008, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported that Contin quit skating, saying that he felt he could not bring himself to focus entirely on longtrack skating. However, Contin made a return to competitive skating in the 2008–09 season.
He competed in the Dutch marathon circuit, until he made his return to the longtrack at the 2009 European Allround Championships at Heerenveen.
Contin is the holder of the current French records on the 3000 and 5000 metres distances. He also held the French record on the 10000 metres distance for almost 10 years before losing it to Timothy Loubineaud in 2020.
