GET TO KNOW CEDRIC
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I am from France, but I've been a resident of Andorra for 22 years now.
Probably home trails because I know them perfectly. That said, Spain is a close second.
GOALS FOR THE YEAR?
The goal is always the same—try and have more fun and more rides than the year before.
BIGGEST RISK YOU'VE TAKEN ON A BIKE?
The biggest risk was Rampage, but today it's to establish a bike brand in Andorra.
FAVORITE LEZYNE PRODUCT?
So many options! Not an easy question here—it's like asking a kid to choose only one candy in a candy store. For mechanical: Tubeless CO2 Blaster. For electronic: Mega XL GPS.
