Part of the Newcomers

Part of the Pirineos Sun Trip (postponed due to virus), Antoine will discover the Sun Trip during the prologue and legs 1 and 2 of the Sun Trip France, from Lyon to Saint-Malo.

His Vision of the Sun Trip

“What attracted me to the Sun Trip is the human, sporting and technological side of this adventure. Discovering others, discussing, seeing, exchanging, this is what the speed, the softness and the silence of the trip allow. I am not a big sportsman and on bad weather days it will be visible when I need to convince myself on my slightly light solar bike. I have always been interested in energy production, especially electric , because it’s the key to our world today. I don’t want to be a lesson giver, just show by making the next world possible without it being sad.”
