A Young Talent

Edgar will be 26 years old during the Sun Trip France leg in Saint-Malo, this July 20, 2020. He is one of the young talents of the Sun Trip, with his extraordinary technical knowledge.

An engineer graduated from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) in Lyon, currently a doctorate at the University of Lyon and at the Graduate School of Aeronautical Techniques and Automobile Construction, Edgar recently manufactured a chainless solar bike with a dual energy generator (battery + supercapacitor)!

Edgar will be present on most legs of the Sun Trip France to rediscover France and prepare for the Sun Trip 2021, if the conditions allow him to participate.

His Vision of the Sun Trip

“The Sun Trip is above all for me a superb technical challenge which allows me to combine several passions: the design of rolling machines, the meeting of people on the water, the transmission of skills and the popularization of new mobilities. It is also a project in the great outdoors, in large spaces, I like that!”
