• 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).

That's better: 6th in Kitzbuhel WCS

Kitzbuhel is one of my favorite places to race on the ITU circuit, the atmosphere is great and it feels so quiet and relaxing when you stays in the Tirol.
I also have my routine as it's my 5th year there so I kind of know where to eat the best Austrian dishes such as the Kaiserschmarrn and where to have a pleasant ride or run in the trails.

Anyway, this time I didn't miss anything in the swim as I was straight into the lead group for a solid ride ( for numbers lovers follow my twitter account).

I started the run at the front and I crossed the line near the front and frozen in 6th unable to sprint against Brad Khalefeldt (Aus) and Will Clarke ( Gbr).
I am happy to have a solid race at this time of the year only a few weeks from the Olympic selection race in London.
Surely, I will have to adjust a few thing to be really sharp in a months time.
