A passion, two brothers
We are Pierre and Loïc, cycling enthusiasts since our childhood.
High level amateur cyclists and cyclosportives, the optimisation of performance and pleasure through cycling has led us to take an interest in the functioning of the human body, the development of physical, physiological, technical, tactical and mental potential.
The validation of the trainer/supervisor/sports director diploma, and training courses on various themes surrounding cycling, coupled with experience in the field have enabled us to create the RCS.
We created the RCS with the aim of being able to train, coach and support beginners to professionals in achieving their goals with a range of services to optimise their potential, motivation and enjoyment of cycling.
In cycling since the age of 12, a “career” made up of victories and moments of doubt that have built me up and reinforced my passion for this sport.
I climbed the ladder until I reached the 1st category and turned to high mountain cyclosportives in search of new challenges.
Attracted and interested for many years in training and everything that revolves around the performance of the athlete, it was at the end of 2017 that I started a “DEJEPS diploma” in traditional cycling, validated in 2018.
The time to create our own structure to share our knowledge and experience came at the end of 2018.
Born in Allier (France), where I started cycling and did my first studies in commerce, my passion for cycling quickly became a reason to live.
Competitor on the federal circuit up to the Elite level, my passion for the mountains quickly led me to cyclosportives where I found what I was looking for in cycling.
All this is now my experience in the field.
Thanks to self-training from an early age and then a diploma in coaching, coaching and sports management (DEJEPS Cycling), I have acquired a theoretical background that has become more solid with each experience.
The pleasure of sharing quickly led me to the path of training and coaching in this sport that allows you to experience unique moments.
History of Ruffaut Cycling System
Goals, victories, failures, questioning, work, research, moments of intense pleasure and happiness, difficult moments, meetings, sharing, emotions and a lot of passion.
This is how we could sum up the many years of practice of our sport. #Rideyourdream
Beginning of training
In the permanent search for performance optimisation and with a passion for sharing, the first exchanges on training with friends quickly turn into training follow-up allowing us to refine and learn a little more about the coaching profession we dream of. Research, reading, training and exchanges with references in the profession allow us to deepen our knowledge. The race summaries and the sharing of our journeys also complete our social networks.
