2020 was a year that saw Juliette continue her development as a rider with some impressive displays throughout the season. Her standout performances were wins at both the elite and U23 French TT championships, alongside eighth place at Liège-Bastogne-Liège and third on the final stage at the Giro Rosa. With those performances continuing in 2021; where she finished in the top ten on GC in every stage race she completed.

“I’m a determined person and I always like to focus on the small details; working closely with the team’s coaches and trainers I can see improvements on the bike. I’ve progressed step-by-step since joining the team and the results are starting to follow now.” 

After briefly doing gymnastics at a young age, Juliette soon only had eyes for things two-wheeled and started off her passion for cycling on the BMX which she did with her brother. BMX transitioned into mountain biking before Juliette eventually switched to road cycling.

Juliette likes the concept of Keep Challenging and thoroughly enjoys being part of the team, both in and outside of the races, which only increases her love for the sport.

“The Keep Challenging process is what I like the most; we always want to be better and I think that is how I also am in real life. We have a good atmosphere within the group of riders which makes it more enjoyable. We know how to work well together in the races but also get along really well outside of them too.”

Off the bike Juliette likes to spend her downtime at home watching TV or going out to socialise with friends. If not, you can find her trying to learn Dutch on Babble.
