Trained and coached by Guillaume Benoist, uncle of Antoine Benoist, no one needs to say that Amandine Fouquenet is a cyclocrosswoman! A flagship discipline for men and which has put the champions of tomorrow on the road in recent months! The same may also be said for female cyclists.
French junior cyclo-cross champion last year in Besançon, the 19-year-old Breton also finished third in the 2019 French Junior Women Road Championships in Beauvais. This demonstrates its complete versatility. This year, she also won the Brittany Elite Women's Cyclo-cross Championship.
Youngest member of the Arkéa-Samsic team, like Léa Curinier, Amandine Fouquenet is an aspiring rider, with strong potential that only asks to be polished in the future.
