• 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).

Peter - Our Friend and Colleague

This week start with a very very sad news, Peter had a tragic accident.
Peter, you will be missed.
My thoughts go to his family.

"It is with absolute shock and sadness that we have to inform you of the tragic death of our colleague and close friend Peter Holmes.

Peter passed away yesterday in an accident while hiking on a local mountain in Vancouver.
It is ironic in Peter’s line of work as Communications Manager, that words will never be able to describe what he meant to us all and the effect he had on all of those around him. While Peter worked with us for the last nine months, it seems like he was a part of our family since the beginning. Peter was a shining light of happiness and energy and truly touched all our lives in a deep way. We will always treasure his wit and humour. As those of us who knew him well can testify, he was a social butterfly who brought happiness to so many of our lives and those of whom he met on his international travels. Peter loved his job as much as those around him loved him. In only a short period of time he made close and treasured friendships with colleagues, athletes, event organisers and media alike. Anybody who Peter touched in life is for the better.
The triathlon world and all our lives are immeasurably poorer without Peter in it.
This has been a tragic week for the triathlon world. We have lost another family member. May we all rally together to commemorate Peter Holmes and Emilio Di Toro (ETU President).

The Sky was pink

Hi everyone,
What a view! This was Sète last week coming back from a long ride . I finished in the dark but across the water I saw Sète under a pink sky, an amazing natural thing!
That reminded me the awesome techno classic from British artist, Nathan Fake ( attached below on the Mp3 player Nathan Fake -The sky was pink /J.Holden Rmx).
I am enjoying the end of the year with my family before flying to Christchurch where apparantly the sun is waiting for me (just my thought ;-) ). Last weekend I raced the 20k of Montpellier where I finished 2nd in 1h03'44" which was a bit of fun, Andrea won the girls' race. Following this result, we read that the journalist named us the sport couple of the year...Is that all? :-)
I leave you my bike is waiting for me.
Stay well,
