Maurène Tregouet: « Breton in a Breton team! »
One of the best junior riders in France, the Morbihan woman has chosen to race professionally with the Arkéa Pro Cyclin Team.
“It’s great for me to sign my first professional contract with Arkéa Pro Cycling Team. I’m a Breton woman joining a Breton team! I’m not arriving in unfamiliar territory either, as I’ve been followed by Franck Renimel for a season. This form of trust and closeness that has been established over this period of time is now reflected in my first contract. There is a good atmosphere in the team. It’s a group that lives, and that suits me. It’s this atmosphere in the team that convinced me to join Arkéa Pro Cycling Team in 2023. From a sporting point of view, I qualify as a sprinter, with the qualities of a puncher. This year – as a second year junior – I scored a podium in a Nations Cup round at Ghent-Wevelgem, and I finished 5th in a similar event in the Netherlands. I also ride track and cyclo-cross, two disciplines that I will continue in the future. My objectives in 2023 will be to open my eyes wide and to capitalize on all the experience I can gather. I want to learn, to play a role as a teammate. I will be satisfied with all the races I have the chance to participate in on one condition: that my work has been well done”.
The words of the General Manager
“Maurène Tregouet was quickly on the table of our sports director of the Arkéa Pro Cycling Team, Franck Renimel. Even before she signed a promising podium on the roads of the Grand Wevelgem juniors women, Franck had detected the emerging qualities of this spirited rider, with good qualities of puncheur as well. 2nd of the French junior championships in her first season in this category, the young rider from Morbihan, had indeed won the Grand Prix de Plouay Ceratizit juniors in the same year. In 2023, Maurène will become a professional rider, following in the footsteps of another young Breton rider: Marie-Morgane Le Deunff. There is no doubt that Maurène will soon follow in the footsteps of her “young” elder, making the adage “value does not wait for the number of years” her own…”
