Chambery Cyclisme Formation… a different take on sport !
A great idea that just needed bringing to completion
Having won the DN.1 French clubs cup competition in 2016, Chambéry Cyclisme Formation (CCF) reached new heights last season: For the third time in four seasons, the 2017 promotion recorded a 100% success rate academically. A telling stat is that the average level of studies of CCF riders who become professionals is Baccalaureate +2.8 years’ higher education whereas nationally it is Baccalaureate +0.8 years (internal source: internal survey). Noteworthy graduates are Aurélien PARET-PEINTRE, who will join the pro group in August 2018 and Benoît COSNEFROY, who has completed his 3-year training period.
The latter also offered us some thrilling moments with all his performances throughout last summer, with the high spot being his world U23 title just a few weeks after joining the professional ranks.
This makes Benoît a perfect illustration of the values promoted by Chambéry Cyclisme Formation over the past 16 years and in particular his successful completion of a twin-qualification curriculum.
Following academic training in parallel with the sports training side is the commitment we have made. It is the best way of protecting them against the vagaries of high-level sporting career and making a success of their social and professional integration.
Evidence suggests that many have understood this, given that this year, 79 unsolicited applications from 25 different countries have landed on our desks.
There is no doubt that we can rely on finding successors to Romain BARDET and his 10 CCF team members from this season for many years to come.
AG2R LA MONDIALE is very proud to have been a loyal partner to Chambéry Cyclisme Formation since its foundation.
