“I have no words to express the joy I feel at the idea of joining a team such as Arkéa-Samsic. It is a dream come true. I would like to thank the General Manager of the team, Emmanuel Hubert, who believed in me and gave me my chance. I started cycling via the cyclo-cross and mountain bike channels, and I won the Italian Championships in these two disciplines as a young rider. I have a climbing profile.
