Video: Behind the Scenes of Benoit Coulanges' French Champs Win

Aug 26, 2020
by Team Dorval  

This Sunday, 23 August, will be one of the greatest memories for the team. We couldn't be happier.

After his winning in Les 2 Alpes, Benoit Coulanges was feeling confident all week.

Dusty and with a lot of rocks this track was enjoyed by most of riders.

Before the morning's training - family picture of the crew for the week.

Baptiste Pierron finished 10th in qualification but he managed fourth position for the finals.


With Amaury Pierron's crash, the wait was quite long at the start. After long warm up on the home trainer, Benoit was good to go! Get well soon Amaury.

Happy faces. Pol Lefebvre, assistant team manager & Claude Pierre, team manager couldn't be prouder of their boys.


Happy father & son.



And the new French champion of downhill is Benoit Coulanges.

bigquotesIt is a dream title for me, I did my best for the final run, borderline at the bottom. I don't know how I can tell you, I'm so happy to take this win. Wearing the French colours for one year will be rad!Benoit Coulanges
