- LA MAISON
- LA VIE
I am not a number 738. Fifty four kilometres, more than two thousand six hundred entrants, my first big race and a dry mouth. I'm nervous but I am not a number.
I am not a number 112. Alpine skiing was the first competitive sport I ever participated in. And I was coming from an island where there are no ski slopes. But I am not a number.
I am not a number 399. My friends lined my hometown course and shouted my name in every corner. He beat me two weeks earlier but this day was my day, this course was my course.
I am not a number 27. Since I was a sprinter and not a mountain goat, I always rode up front before climbs. The pace was slow, we were chatting during the ride and then, suddenly, „boom“.
I am not a number 80. On the map, I’m just a dot from a GPS signal - a pair of coordinates and a ticking clock. But I am not a number.
I am not a number 1047. Base miles and big-ring drills, diet and core strength sessions. Attention to detail in every aspect of training and racing life. But I am not a number.
I am not a number 6027. In amongst the masses of riders herded into the starting pens like cattle, ready to go on the ‘b’ of the bang. But I am not a number.
Slow-venia The Film. Watch and learn, and find your wanderlust via this great video by PCR Gravier
The Climb - In Conversation. The creators of the award-winning film meet the creator of the Café du Cycliste style, and the conversation is as colourful as the collection.
Roots beget routes. There are few places like it in a world, few places where so much riding is so close at hand. But don't just take our word for it, view the short and plan the trip.
Fuji on film. See why Japan's most famous mountain keeps Tokyo riders coming back for more.
Two Wheels and Waves. Rolling swells and touches of swell riding. If travel is as much about the journey as the destination, bikes and boards deliver on both.
