I started cycling at 15 years old as a way to keep good form during the off-season for the speed skating. Quickly, cycling became more important and now it’s my main focus. Athlete and founder of the Tour de Quebec (a national cycling stage race) what can I say, I’m pretty busy, but in everything I do, I am always focused and passionate. During the last few years in the elite category, I’ve been constantly improving. My journey has not always been easy, but I am proud to have continued despite the difficulties.

For sure the best is still to come… I hope to share my experiences with you all here at Cycling Shorts.
