His profile

A meticulous perfectionist, Anthony has shown his worth in the professional peloton since 2010. He has proved to be a proficient attacker, twice winning the combative rider award in the Tour de France (2015 and 2016). In 2017, a fractured collarbone deprived him of a seventh Tour de France. A few months earlier, Anthony had taken victory on home soil, in the Tour de Normandie. He impressed by winning the first stage and holding on to the leader’s yellow jersey for the whole week. It was also on home territory that he had won the Polynormande 6 years earlier. It would seem that his region suits him: en 2017 he took victory in the Duo Normand with team-mate Pierre-Luc Périchon. When not cycling, this Norman racer is interested in cooking. He may one day become a restaurateur but in the meantime, he has set himself a goal of winning at least once, somewhere a long way from Normandy ;).

In his own three words: “Combative, scrappy, passionate.”

In 20 questions

No one in particular. I tried tennis and then BMX, I was 12 years old and didn’t have much technique, I tried road cycling and liked it straight away.

Winning the combativity award on home soil in the Tour de France

Nothing in particular…

You don’t get something for nothing, and that if you want to succeed in cycling and therefore in life, you have to work hard and make sacrifices.

The Polynormande. It’s on home soil, I’ve won it in the past and the race works for me.

“Placette”. I’ve had it since my beginnings in pro cycling, I’ve always been in the thick of sprints, in the second row, and very often picked up “small places”.

Guillaume Faucon, who was a pro in the Auber team, but has retired from cycling.

Cooking! I love it: preparing good meals with good ingredients.

Cooking, wine, travelling.

No particular favourite.

I don’t play video games. Recently, I enjoyed Marc Madiot’s book.


Daniel Mangeas !

Tournedos Rossini.

A Maserati GranTurismo

I become French champion or if I win a stage of the Tour.

A beautiful region, with magnificent seaside landscapes. A cycling paradise. And excellent crepes!

I liked Laure Manaudou.
