Franck Bonnamour is a talented native of Brittany, and it’s obvious where he gets it from: his father, Yves, won the Route du Sud and was a team-mate of Laurent Fignon; his mother, Christine, raced in the women’s Tour in the 80s. The Lannion-born youngster didn’t waste time. Crowned Junior European Champion in 2013, he went on to become a mainstay of the France Espoirs team and played an important role in Kevin Ledanois’ world champion title. After three seasons in a pro team, 23 year old Franck knows what he wants, which is to 100% fulfil his attacking role in the professional peloton!
In his own words: “ A fighter, combative, bold.. “
