Albany 70.3

posted at 05:54

2015 starts better than the end of 2014.
I finished 5th at the 70.3 in Albany (WA).
I've done a good swim in the lead pack and I struggled in bike because I borrowed a bike for the event (mine has a broken basebar).
I did a good run too. So, now I need to improve my level and hopefully I will fight for strong results in the next races.



FFWD Contract

posted at 07:38

FFWD is a young company born in The Netherlands in 2006.
Craftsmanship, high quality and durability are their most important values. In a few years of time FFWD Wheels has grown into a company with a global distribution network and a solid reputation.
All FFWD Wheels are handmade at the company in Netherlands. FFWD wheel builders pay close attention to every wheel. This leads to wheels which are feather light and strong as iron: FFWD Wheels are no mass product. FFWD Wheels are of high quality, hand built in the Netherlands
They used different technology as the:
- (DARCTM) double arc profile improves aerodynamics by reducing the drag. I tested it in the wind tunnel in November. My drag is lower than Mavic (0.23 vs 0.24) for example.
- They use High-Tensile TC-35 carbon for the majority of the lay-up. But in some lay-ups they add some higher modulus sheets to increase stiffness locally. So, their guideline is to find the best compromise between stiffness and durability.
Caja Rural and Topsport Vlaanderen road teams are riding with FFWD. In total they sponsor around 40 teams and 650 athletes all combined.
For my part, I tested the FFWD in the wind tunnel of Magny-Cours. And I obtained the best result ever riding the Disc and the 5 spokes front wheel.


Retrospections and expectations...

posted at 04:42

October seems like a good time to reflect on the last year and plan for the next.
In 2012 season I failed to achieve my main objective which was to qualify for Hawaii. But despite that, the last season was not bad. I won short distance race at Aiguillon/Mer and won Sireuil race for the 6th year. I also finished 3 ironmans even though I contracted hepatitis A before the last 2. I also did top 3 in Nouâtre (bike record), Larmor-Plage, Gorges de l’Ardeche and Cote de Beaute half ironman.
Furthermore, I helped my club, the Team Charentes Triathlon at the 2nd French championship by team.
On the other side, I think I need more serenity. I am grateful to be able to count on the help of my partnership, Go Plast and some others brands. Some news sponsorships will be announced before the end of this year. Besides that, I’m sharing my life with my favorite Australian. We live in Perth, a lovely and easy city to train and enjoy life (have a look at the official clip of Perth below).I swim at the Challenge Stadium with high level swimmers, ride with professional cyclists and run alone or with ITU short distance athletes from Western Australia.The other part of the year, I spend my time at Cognac for training camp.
I’m optimistic, enthusiastic and excited to start the new season of 2013.
For the Team, we created a group of “long distance athletes” selected from local athletes and some others like Stanislas Krylov. I can say that we have an unbeatable team next year.
And for my part, I’m still confident to perform in Hawaii as the last results of the French guys and Kienle give me the certainty I can be in the Top10. So, I have to train for it.
I will try to earn points at Busselton and Melbourne ironman and at Busselton half ironman.
I wish to share my experience in Australia with you, to give you inspiration, so stay tuned…
