Representing France Age 49 Home Pau – Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France Occupation Teacher
2nd category UFOLEP, Road mountain bike and CX cyclist
- 2016 French Dividefinisher
Why did you sign up for IncaDivide ?
For the stunning landscapes, the massive challenge (total mileage + impressive elevation + high altitude) and riding the Andes Cordillera !
What bike/equipment are you planning to use ?
I will use the same bike I used for 2016 French Divide edition: a Canyon Inflite AL. Considering the overall equipment required for IncaDivide (more important than the FD), I am planning to ride with a rack and Ortlieb rear panniers instead of regular bikepacking gears
You are a French Divide finisher. What is your goal for IncaDivide 2017 ?
My main challenge is obviously to finish the adventure on schedule and I would like to complete it within 20 days (time limit is 26 days).
On the other hand, I do not want to sacrifice my adventure for any performance. I want to enjoy this fantastic playground (the Andes Cordillera), its landscapes, meetings with local people as well as with other competitors. It is likely I will never come back to South America again, I want my adventure to equal the challenge.

Anything else you would like to share
The French Divide 2016 edition was an extraordinary adventure. It changed my vision of cycling. I am wishing IncaDivide will be the worthy prolongation of this revelation…
