Kevin likes everything! Medium and high mountains, cobbles, echelon tactics. In 2015, in his first year in a pro team, he was crowned Espoirs World Champion in Richmond. In 2016, he continued to put in the hard graft and was rewarded with his first podium result in the Coupe de France on the Classic Loire Atlantique. However, he was forced to take a break in February 2017 when he fell in Italy, fracturing his femur. After several weeks of rehabilitation, Kevin got back in the saddle and scored good results on stages in the Tour de l’Ain and the Route du Sud. He finished a creditable sixth place in the French Championship, and wore the national colours in the European Championships in Denmark. And as of this summer, his father, Yvon Ledanois, will be taking up the post of directeur sportif. But the former DS for BMC has made it very clear “No special treatment. I will certainly be even more demanding of Kevin.”
My father’s Eddy Merckx, on which he won his greatest victory, at the top of the Sierra Nevada in 1997 in the Vuelta.
My first podium as a professional.
I don’t know…
Everything! I’m doing what I love, what I always wanted to do, and I get to travel!
To never give up, and to realise that I have real strength of mind.
No nickname as yet…
I have lots. Especially those from my generation, with whom I shared the last two Espoir World Championships.
I would have continued my studies to work in real estate no doubt.
I love sport: football, running, golf… I also like evenings with friends.
I listen to everything, especially Deep House.
FIFA16 and “A lion never dies” by Djibril Cissé.
Dikkenek! No, I don’t have one, I like thrillers, action films, comedies.
Chicken curry or a good goat’s cheese-honey pizza!

When I will have decided that it is. I’m not imposing any limits on myself.
A land of cycling. That’s where I started winning, in the juniors, in front of a lot of spectators.
The American surfer and model, Alana Blanchard… But especially a lot of respect for what Pauline Ferrant-Prévot accomplishes in cycling.
