Jean- Loup Fayolle & Léandre Lozouet join ARKEA-B&B HOTELS Developpement
ean-Loup Fayolle, who will be studying physics in Lyon at the start of the new academic year, and Léandre Lozouet will be wearing the colours of the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS development team in 2024. “This dual sport-study project is a real luxury”, says Jean-Loup Fayolle.
“Turning professional is the first step. It’s the reward for all the hard work I’ve put in over the last few seasons, and recognition for the results I’ve achieved: 4th in the Classique des Alpes, 3rd in a stage of the Tour du Valromey, victory in the French Junior Cup in 2022. I’m more of a climber, even if I do well in time trials. Having the opportunity to continue my studies is a real luxury, and I’d like to thank ARKEA-BB&B HOTELS. I’m going to start a Staps course in Lyon at the start of the new academic year, while at the same time working at the highest level in sport. This will enable me to project myself both in terms of sport and in socio-professional terms”.
“I’m delighted to sign a professional contract so early in my career. I’ll be able to discover the Class 1 calendar next year, and my aim will be to perform well in these competitions. I’m happy to be part of this great project. I’m a rider who likes one-day races, but not only that, even though I love all the cobbled events. I define myself as a sprinter-puncher ».

In the words of…
“Jean-Loup Fayolle is our challenge for the future. I saw him in the Classique des Alpes, and he has great climbing and road-riding qualities as a junior. He’s a young rider in terms of age, but he’s already shown great maturity. We want to support him over time and gradually bring him up to the top level. He’s an atypical rider, and all high-potential riders are like that. He’s doing sports studies at Saint-Étienne, and will be starting at Staps in Lyon next term. Léandre Lozouet also knows where he wants to go. He has ambitions, and here again we can see that this rider has potential. He was a junior international and came 3rd in Paris-Roubaix. He knows how to rub and has good speed. He’s young, he’ll be discovering competitions at a higher level, and he’ll soon be able to demonstrate his great qualities, which we can all see for ourselves.
