About Ruffaut Cycling System

A passion, two brothers

We are Pierre and Loïc, passionate about cycling since our childhood.

High-level amateur cyclists and cyclosportives; performance optimization and pleasure brought by cycling have led us to learn more about the functioning of the human body, but also about physical, physiological, technical, tactical and mental growth.

The validations of coach / supervisor / sports director’s diplomas, and trainings on various thematics related to cycling practice, coupled with field experiences, we have been able and ready to create RCS.

By creating RCS, our main aim was to train, coach, and support cyclists from beginner to professionals level in reaching their goal. All of this by offering them a set of services maximazing their potential, their motivation and pleasure during their practice.

Pierre

Cycling since the age of 12, with a “career” full of victories and moments of doubt that built my personality ​​and strengthened my passion for the sport.

I climbed the ladder until I reached the 1st category and decided to turn to mountain cyclosportives, looking for new challenges.

Since many years, I had an interest and attraction to training and all that revolves around the performance of the athlete. It is late in 2017 that I started a DEJEPS in traditional cycling, validated in 2018.

The right moment to create our own structure came in the end of 2018, with a strong motivation to share our knowledge and experience.

Loïc

Born in Allier, where I started cycling and studied business, my passion for cycling soon became my purpose in life.

Competitor on Federal circuit to Elite, my passion for the mountains quickly led me to start the cyclosportives where I found what I was always looking for in cycling.

Thanks to self-training from a very young age plus training, coaching & my sport director diploma (DEJEPS in Cycling), I acquired a theoretical background that gets stronger through the experiences.

The pleasure of sharing has quickly got me to the path of coaching and training in this sport that allows the experience of unique moments.

Our beginnings in coaching

In the permanent search for performance optimization and with a passion for sharing, our first training exchanges with friends transformed very quickly into training follow-up allowing us to refine and learn more about this coaching job we were dreaming of. Research, reading, training and exchanges with key professionals allowed us to expand our knowledge. Summaries from the races and the sharing of our trips can also be found on our social media accounts.
