The Mountain Man


Rémi Laffont has been part of the mountain bike elite in France for quite some time now. He grew up in the mountains on his saddle, travelling far and wide: he’s a ‘mountain man’ if there ever was one. He loves the mountains, their stories, and challenges they offer. Southwestern France, his home, acts as a training ground in the run-up to competitions, as well as when he has to prepare for his next challenge. Training and championships aren’t the only elements in his life, for he spends plenty of time with his family, too: Rémi’s biggest supporters. In 2013, he placed first at the U23 French Marathon Championships and in 2014 placed fourth in the overall placings at the UCI Marathon World Series. His goal right now is to reach the international top rankings as part of the ROSE Vaujany Team fueled by ultraSPORTS team. Talk to him even for a minute and you’ll recognise he doesn’t shy away from challenges. A confident biker who stands by his slogan,

Be brave!
