• Sprints to first ITU World Cup win in Australia

    I claimed my first ITU World Cup win with an electrifying sprint in Mooloolaba, just pipping reigning champion Brad Kahlefeldt and another Frenchman, David Hauss, on the line in the first major event of the 2012 season. ( March, 2012).

  • Winner in Geelong (AUS) for the ITU Continental Cup.

    After shadowing with Will Clarke (GBR) on the last lap, I managed to kick away with the finish line in sight. ( March, 2012).


    After 2011, I won again in Wanaka for the Contact Tri Serie in Wanaka over a strong Kiwi field. (january 2012)


    After 2009, I won my 2nd national title. I am really pleased with my victory, it will give me the joy to lead into the Olympics as the French Champion! (September,2011).


    I answered the London call and secured my spot for the next Olympic Game by finishing 6th and 1st French in the Olympic Test event(August,2011).

NYC Marathon: The day after

What a race!
The NYC marathon is a great event!
I was impressed to see the 42 000 runners waiting for the start and going into Verrazano bridge.
The crowds were massive all the way . The Americans are really really good to push you, it's a special feeling to hear so much happiness during 26,2 miles!
I did the first 19 miles with my brother following our sub 3h plan untill he hit the wall. It was impressive to see how you can lose all your energy in one mile.
We crossed the half marathon mark in 1h28'15" .
Andrea ran with my dad, for him it was a come back after 20 year off running ( he did 2h43 in 1989 NYC Marathon).
The big apple was a great experience and we all enjoyed it. For sure I will come back one day and it will be to race it!
Take care .
