Troubady / Moret and Sauteur / Gourjault the fastest in the sprint, Santa / Dazeur dominant in the classics

Troubade/More won the first race, while Sotor/Gorgault won the next day. The Santa/Azur duo was uncontested for the classics. He’s ahead of Combe/Monjanel by over forty-five seconds.

3 Questions for Augustin Ripoll

Agustin created a surprise yesterday in the first sprint when we were expecting big names at the moment like Barouh, Buffett or even young sprinter Luca Baron. What do you do?

So glad I was able to make the round I wanted in time. I had reassured myself about my level of sprinting in the Metz a couple of weeks ago, but was surprised and happy to see that he finally took a victory this round. Work pays off!

Not many people know your name or think it has disappeared from kayak racing. Can you tell us about your background? Starting with ck, early years in EDF, studies, life cycle, back to HN?

I started kayaking very early, being about 9 years old with my dad who couldn’t put me on a surfboard since we were in Paris. We signed up for JEV where we do slopes, so I signed up for the slopes. Years later I’m back at EDF in 2017 and 2018 in the junior class, it’s worked out really well for me, bringing in some singles titles in k1 in c2, a classic in both years and racing in junior2. After that I left for a two-year scientific preparatory course because it suited me. We do a lot of math and physics there to prepare for competitions, not really practice time, the goal during these two years was kayaking at school on Sundays to rest. After the competitions went well, I joined the Ecole Polytechnique, which is a good school. Suffice it to say that with two years without a river, I totally wanted to get back in it. I seriously began to recover in September 2020, and found the French national team in 2021 at -23. I’ve had encouraging results at Solkan at Europe-23 and have continued to train ever since.

How do you balance yourself today? What does your daily life consist of and what emotions do you have when you approach the World Cup in France on a fabled river?

On a daily basis, I walk around and work on the school campus in Palizzo, always with my club coach training plans, July Viviez, and this year a school physical coach (Joffrey Ducert) follows me. I juggle classes at the same time, but the school allows me to organize myself well to train twice a day on average, to go to internships, self-employed, etc. From my house, I take advantage of it. I am gradually introducing myself to this World Cup, the Vizier is a beautiful technical and physical river that we have the advantage of knowing well. Anyway, I’m so happy to be able to participate, it’s a great opportunity this fall for my first big worlds. You can’t wait to have the chance to do a great race under this Finot Bridge!
