• 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).

Auckland World Cup- Wrap up of the 2011 season

Kia Ora everyone!

After 46hr of travel I landed in New Zealand, my second home.
I will be training here in Christchurch until next april but first I had to end up my 2011 season in Auckland for the ITU World Cup.
The build up to the race was awesome, I could feel in the air that this race was gonna be awesome.
The kiwi's love triathlon and everything was reunited the day of the event to give a stunner to the thousands of Aucklanders.
The course was hard and I hope if you watched the race on the national TV of on the side of the road, you enjoyed it.
I wished I was a bit more on top of my game but I had to do with what I had on D-day.
I crossed the finish line in 4th with the fastest run split. Kris Gemmell and Andrea won the races, I am really happy for them and for sure the next year event will be madness.
Now I am enjoying a week holiday after 17 000km, 2 races and 12h jet lag in one week.
All the best.
Feel free to watch the video of the race.
