GSC Blagnac Velosport 31
Dave Rayner Funded Since: 2019

Is the first time you have had support from the Dave Rayner Fund?

This is my first year on the DaveRaynerFund support program.

What team are you joining?

I’ll be riding for GSC Blagnac Velosport 31.

Tell us a bit about your team.

They're a DN1 team based in southern France. They’re one of the oldest teams in France and has a really strong support network of staff and riders.

What is your race programme looking like?

We’ve got a great race program which features French cups and multiple UCI1.1 and 2.1 races over Europe, for me the highlight will be riding Paris-Roubaix for the second year running.

Where are you going to live?

I’m living with the team in Toulouse this season.

What bike will you be riding and who supplies the team kit?

We’re riding Drag bikes with Cox carbon wheels, we’re also lucky to be sponsored by Fizik for saddles and Look for pedals. All of our clothing is provided by Gobik and looks amazing- it’s newly redesigned for this season!
