• 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).

5th at European Championship


Yesterday I crossed the line 5th at the Europeans Championship in Athlone (IRL).
In front of a Massive crowd it was really nice week-end of triathlon.
The French Team did well as we come back with 3 medals and 2 top 8 finishes between junior/Elite Women& men.On the elite men's race, Alistair Brownlee (Gold) and Javier Gomez (Silver) were really strong yesterday and they had a great offensive race. Personnally, I am pretty happy with my performance as for the first time since Seoul ( where I rolled my ankle) I felt I could put the hammer down on the run.
With my team mate David Hauss (Bronze) & Joao Silva (4th) we moved up the whole 10k run as we started about a 1min15 after the four leaders .
My fitness is going the right way and the last two big weeks at altitude seems to pay off.I am flying back in the Pyrennees tonight for another two week before Hamburg WCS.
Now it's packing time as yesterday night I prefered to drink few beers in a pub... Enjoyed Ireland!
