• 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).

12th in Mooloolaba World cup season opener


I had a solid race last week end in Mooloolaba ( Sunshine Coast of Australia) and crossed the line in 12th.
Despite a penalty on the run ( for a mistake in transition), I am quite confident on my form as I felt pretty strong considering the time of the year.

I raced agressivly, with 3 laps breakaway on the bike, to test my legs after my long base training and it gave me indications to build on the right way towards the Olympic selection in London this August.

All the best Laurent
