Very happy to be an ambassador for the Tri-Academy.

When Christophe and Thierry proposed it to me, I said yes without hesitation! I have known them for a very long time and I appreciate their enthusiasm and passion for triathlon. They love and they know this demanding sport.

Their choice of setting up the Tri-Academy at Carqueiranne ended up seducing me. I know this magical place that saw me start windsurfing and I know it’s a great playground for lovers of outdoor sports: bike paths that take you to the foot of the passes, Olympic pool discovered heated all year round, Mediterranean Sea, and opportunities to run on this superb salt road that borders the salt marshes. The top! « 

Long live the Tri-Academy

I joined Tri-Academy because of my passion for triathlon like them.
It is a sport that requires so much investment in training and on the mind that their skills and their many experiences (in competition) can only be added values.

Their simple and detailed dialogues make Tri-Academy open at all levels.

They will accompany you to achieve your goals with advanced equipment and an excellent training ground.

It is with great pleasure that I join the Tri-Academy team as ambassador!

I must say that the idea of ​​a triathlon camp in Carqueiranne really makes sense. Indeed, I train all year in the Var and it is for me a daily pleasure to practice the three sports in these beautiful landscapes.

The philosophy and values ​​conveyed by Christophe and Thierry are beautiful. Passionate, experienced in the field of triathlon, no doubt that the exchanges and the hours of training during the courses will be rich of lessons and very friendly.
