• 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).

Ready for 5 weeks away!

I am spending my last few days in Christchurch before spending 5 weeks away: First for a race in Auckland followed by 3 weeks at altitude for a training camp with the Kiwi team and ending with the Oceania Championships in Wellington mid march.
My training has been good and the last few days were epic! The wind picked up so strong on the Port Hills, I literally got blowned up and flipped over into a bush on the other side of the road! It was a weird feeling to be unable to control my bike!

Anyway, I am good and really happy to be getting back on a start line . Watching the winter Olympics these days make it even more exciting! The french are doing a great job: 2 golds today and a bronze yesterday. What else?!
