Video: Charging Home Trails in France

Jun 14, 2021

Baptiste Gaillot, 30, is a French privateer from Chamrousse resort, near Grenoble.

Ski coach in winter, he created a mountain bike shuttle company called "Bat'shuttle" to take as many people & friends as possible to the trails that he created under Chamrousse.

Passionate about cycling and competition since a long time, he trains all year to be as fast as possible, which allowed him to finish 26th in the 2020 EWS rankings and take the start of some DH World Cups.

We can wait to see him at the start of the first EWS of the year this month .

 We raced in the same enduro this weekend where Baptiste finished 3rd. I felt I had a good performance but my final time was still 35% slower than his. It makes you realize the enormous skill gap between pros and weekend warrior !

Funny to learn about his shuttle service here on pinkbike though, we're almost neighboors !

 Out of curiosity, is Baptiste a name frequented in any other country ?

 Used by French speaking people only (Belgium, France, Switzerland …)

 Oui. Certainly not the most frequent, but it is. It's pronounced "Batist" by the way, you drop the "p". Try to explain that to the Swiss-germans here, it's already a miracle if they don't pronounce it "Papttischt"...
