Florent hails from Reunion Island, where volcanic peaks rise out of the Indian Ocean, but has been living, working and raising his family as well as exploring the great Canadian outdoors for the last 15 years. It was only recently that Florent fixed himself the objective of returning to his birthplace to compete in one of the legendary trail races, the “Diagonale des fous”, literally, the crazy diagonal, an epic ultra trail race that traverses the entire island of La Réunion, over valcanoes, through jungle and past majestic waterfalls, accumulating some 10000 m of D+ along the way! Florent also runs for the Canadian The North Face trail team. Florent was an integral part of FRUIT3 development, testing early versions through his snowshoe racing and winter trail season. Florent continues to train and race with FRUIT3 and PROKRUNCH to this day.
